Spring Semester-Picture Update

So I realized I hadn't posted any pictures from this semester at all...and it's midterms already! I don't really have words to say, just pictures to show. :)

Oh...but I will say this: BEST. SEMESTER. EVER.

Easter! We drew names and did "Secret Easter Bunny's" for each other. AND we had David play the Easter Bunny for all of us and hide eggs for an Easter egg hung! So fun! :)

Cyndi got her hairs did

Boise trip for Ashlee's bridal shower=Pedicures with the littles :)

Late night pearly white cleaning parties! So much fun.

David and me after our date to Olive Garden and a Paul Cardall concert (amazing).

Snuggie Fashion show!

**Probably all semester Cyndi has been asking me if I have ever worn my Snuggie with a belt around the this time when she asked I just did it! And so did she!

And Meagan!

And Karoline!

So our roommate, Mandy (far left), is always in bed by at least 10pm (usually 830 or 9)...but last Sunday night she was up until midnight! We we all in shock!

Karoline turned 22 on May 27th and we celebrated at Famous Dave's with our FHE brothers (and David).

The roommates! It's a rare occasion for all of us to be in the same place, so we always take pictures when it happens. :)

The whole birthday group! We were missing some of our FHE brothers, but it was still so so fun!

I walked around "blind" for 4 hours on Friday. It's for a Special Ed class I'm taking called "exceptional students" later on in the semester I get to get a feel for what it's like to be in a wheelchair! :)

Throughout the four hour period of blindness on Friday I had a different mask for each hour, so I let all of the roommate wear one for us to take a picture! (Courtney was also doing it at the same time so we had 8 masks total.)

Just yesterday Meagan, Karoline and Cyndi all ended up in I changed my shirt to match and of course we took pictures! I love my roommates!

Us in our purple and our adorable table! The flowers in the middle are mine...from David. :) I'm so lucky.

Just my Cyndi and me. I love her. :)

This is our "Family" wall. It's taken all semester to get it put together, but finally yesterday I took it upon myself to get it finished, and we love it!

This frame (courtesy of the D.I. $1.50) has a picture of each of our real families and then fun family quotes down the center (Sorry big sisters, the picture I had with you guys in it was too big for the frame).

This one is our apartment family. :) JeeHye gave me this picture frame for my birthday and I love it!

Well that's all for now! We are doing a big apartment group date tomorrow and our plan is to take lots of pictures! Maybe I'll get around to posting them by the end of the semester. :)

A REAL Teacher...

This week I got to experience a small taste of what it will be like to be a real teacher...and I loved it! I got to teach a lesson of some sort every day except today, which meant a lesson plan or some sort of preparation before hand so that I could communicate in the most simple way possible.

For one of my classes this semester I get to go to Central Elementary School in Sugar City, Idaho. I help in a first grade classroom for two hours every Tuesday and Thursday morning. I got to teach science lessons on electricity this week! We learned about static electricity on Tuesday and then circuits/flashlights on Thursday! I love my first grade class and it's always good to see their faces light up and hear them say "Hi Miss Foote!" when I walk into the classroom. They love to show me their work when they are finished and they LOVE that my last name is Foote.

**side note: the first week I started helping in their class 'foot' was one of their spelling words. Needless to say, I was the star that Thursday when I got to introduce myself**

Anyway, this week was awesome. I can't say enough how blessed I feel to be at a school that allows Sophomores/Juniors to go out into the field so early on and develop their ideas and knowledge about teaching. I already know, after just three weeks, that if it weren't for these few short weeks being in the classroom, I would have been in for a BIG surprise when I went to student teach.

I love school. I love teaching. I can't wait to have a classroom of my own. :)

My camera refused to take a clear picture, but this is my name tag. :)
