Christmas in My Classroom

So today Greg came and visited my classroom. I convinced him to dress up as santa. It was the funniest thing. I had to be the elf to seal the deal. Here are some pictures haha.

Our new addition!!

Well....we did it...we got a puppy. Crazy to state, new jobs, new house, and now a new addition to our little family. We found her on Friday night in Draper Ut and we couldn't leave without taking her home..she is so cute! She is a cockapoo...for most of my life I have grown up with a cockapoo named Ralph. He was by far my favorite, and when we moved away from Virginia I missed him alot. Luckily we found a little baby girl cockapoo just like Ralph and I am so excited! We were trying to think of a name for of coarse I started thinking of things I love. One thing I love more than anything is shoes...athletic shoes...NIKE shoes to be specific. Greg and I learned in college that NIKE actually was the greek goddess for Victory, so what better thing to name her than Nike? So here she is...little Nike J Larsen. We love her very much and are very excited to have her in our family! I hope all is well with you all...sorry it's taken me so long. I haven't had internet until tonight!

I feel so grateful for the spirit I was able to feel this past weekend. There was one talk the hit me particularly hard, and that was President Monson's talk on Change. Change is a word that I have always been very afraid of, yet I have been learning on how to embrace change rather than run away from it. Life will change, people will come and go, and not letting a moment pass is something very important. Expressing myself is something that has never been easy for me, in fear that life in fact will change. Yet listening to the talk by such a righteous man, I felt the spirit so strong. I realized that life goes on one step at a time, and as long as we keep the eternal perspective in life, everything will work out, and whatever happens, happens for a reason. I am so thankful for that knowledge, and I can only hope that I can do better at accepting change and not letting moments pass without expressing myself, and do the things which matter most. I am so grateful for this church and the knowledge I have....I hope you all had an amazing conference just as I did. I hope all is well! Love you all!

I had the chance to see one of my oldest, best friends this weekend. She came down, and it was a GREAT surprise for me! Her little baby is so is crazy to think that we have been friends for so long, and have gone through everything we have together. I cannot thank her enough for everything she has done for me in my life, and even for things she may not even know she has done. She truly has always been a great example to me, and I look up to her more than she knows. It truly made me think of how thankful I am for people Heavenly Father has put in my life....Thanks for coming to visit Heather!!

My Classroom

Ok so the family has been bugging me for pictures of my classroom so here it is! I love it there! Seriously every day I leave thinking to myself I have the BEST JOB IN THE WORLD! I love my kids, my aides, my co-workers....everything about my situation right now I love and couldn't be happier! Love you all and hope everything is going well!

Jack Johnson

Ok ok...I know I have been slacking but, you see I will explain. My amazing husband got me tickets to see one of my favorite singers Jack Johnson for my birthday. Due to him not being in Utah, I took one of my good friends Aubrey. With all of the excitement, and possibly second hand weed smoking, I seemed to have lost my camera case which in turn I lost my camera USB chord. So I haven't been able to get pictures off of my camera. Finally I am able to, here are a few pics of Aubrey and I at the concert it was SOOOO FUN! Jack was amazing! And I almost got backstage because it was my birthday! AMAZING NIGHT!!! Thanks hunny! That was the best birthday present!

I love to see the temple!!

So since being to utah, I have had the amazing oppourtunity to attend the temple. I have gotten to go to the Jordan River Temple and Mt. Timpanogos. It has been sad going without Greg but truly has made me feel so blessed. I went with one of my friends to the temple tonight, and as we were talking it made me think how amazing life is, and how much more I have to learn. I truly feel like being close to the temple, and being in this enviroment is one of the reasons we are supposed to be in Utah. I absolutely love it! Anyway...I hope you are all doing well, faculty meetings start for me tomorrow...sad summer went by so fast. Love you all!

A new journey

Well recently I made the journey across the country once again....but this time it's permanent for a while. I had to leave Greg in Texas because I had to start training for school. It has been really hard being away from him, especially that we wont be back together again for a while. (MISS YOU BABE!!) Yet I have been trying to keep busy, I have training every day. It does get tiring but I am glad its going on, there is so much to learn. For those of you who don't know I am going to be teaching special education and coaching basketball at Spanish Fork High School. I am really excited about it, I will be teaching 11 kids in my class and although it is a new and challenging experience for me I am happy and grateful for the oppourtunity to learn and grow as much as my students. I am really excited for what is to come....I hope all is you all!

Here is a fun tag. Here are the rules:1. Add a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember. 2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. Its actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave on about you.

Greg and I enjoy it so much, especially that we can share a hobby together. Here are a few pictures of us and Brandon and Maryellen golfing today. Hope you all are doing well.
