Today, I had my second baby shower with my closest friends from high school and after. I couldn't have asked for a better group of girls to support me through this entire pregnancy. I have remained friends with 6 girls from high school which just warms my heart. We have been out of high school for 8 years this year and we all still manage to keep in touch. I love these girls so much and rely on them for a lot. It also helps that 4 of them are also mommies and these 4 girls also adding to their families this year with me so they always have lots of advice for me!:)
This was taken in early April of the 5 of us that are adding/added babies this year to our families. Baby Eli was born Jan. 27 and Baby Xander came early on April 17. Three more of us to go!
In college, I added this lovely lady to my circle of friends. She is honest, loyal, and so much fun!
And I have added a handful of amazing girlfriends through Ryan. When I began dating Ryan, I met so many of his friends girlfriends/fiances/wives and I so fortunately clicked with all of them! It makes it so nice when the boys want to get together because we ladies want to get together, too! I am so lucky:) Unfortunately, I do not have pictures with a lot of them:(
This week also begins the last week of work for me at the Math Assistance Center (MAC) at IUPUI. When I began my journey back to school in May of 2009, I started by taking 2 classes and if I loved them I would continue to become a Math teacher; if not, I would have to figure out what I would do with my life then somehow. Obviously, I *LOVED* my classes and began tutoring at the MAC in August of 2009. It pretty much solidified my love for teaching. I can't believe 2 years has already gone by and I will no longer be working there. Although there have been some ups and downs at the MAC, I have never stopped loving tutoring students, especially in Algebra and Trigonometry! I'll miss working there, some co-workers, and interacting with the students. I'm excited to see what the future holds for me after Baby E arrives. I will be beginning my journey of the last few semesters of my degree with my education blocks in January and I couldn't be more excited!
Hope you all have a great week! Keep praying for Baby E and these last 7 weeks ((hopefully:))) of pregnancy for me! Pray for a safe and healthy delivery, and a healthy little boy or girl! And also say a prayer for all other expecting moms and babies. I have so many people I know who are expecting, due anywhere between August and December! So crazy!
