Happy Day!

I heard on my student teaching placement yesterday! I am beyond thrilled. I feel like my prayers have been answered. Waiting was really tough, but it was totally worth it. I'm teaching in a bilingual school, in a resource room for upper elementary students. I am so excited, words can't even express it. I talked to my cooperating teacher last night, and she seems really cool and welcoming. I can't wait to meet her and the students.

On another note, I had an awesome weekend. Friday night was my last scrapbook night at church. I am really going to miss these ladies. We met once a month to scrap together, and it was awesome. Women of all ages coming together over a common love.
On Saturday I had company from home up to visit for a soccer tournament. I got to watch A's game and then we went out for pizza. It was great to catch up with old friends. I haven't seen them since Christmas break.

On Sunday, my church group went out to a sculpture park called Lakenenland. It is the coolest place. All the sculptures are recycled scrap metal. This place has multiple fire pits, and grills. So we had a cookout and then went to look at the sculptures. 

 This is one of my favorites, of the big dipper and the world below. The world is absolutely beautifuly crafted.
 The dinosaur and the fish mark the entrance. It is the first thing you can see when you are on the highway.
 The human weight is always a favorite. We could play on this for a long time. We like to put multiple people on each side.
 My friends and I on the alligator. We put the camera on a stump and set a timer.
 A beautiful tribute to the victims of 9/11
 This is once of my favorites. Its an eagle of made of steel. I love the silver pieces.
 The big snowmobile
One of the other cool features in the mine. The area that I live in is a big mining town.

Life is great. I am enjoying all the time I can with my friends. I slept through their 2am texts this morning telling me the northern lights were out. That is the only thing I still need to see while I am up here, besides a moose. Otherwise, I have made the most out of my four years. I can't believe I am almost onto the next chapter of my life.
