Crazy Butt Week

Okay, sorry long time no blog. I started back to work two weeks ago and life has been crazy. Getting my classroom ready, finding all of my old supplies, trying not kill new students, and so on. JR has been great, very supportive. Moving me and taking care of the small and big stuff.

Two girls and two different soccer schedule, working a forty hour a week job plus teaching three college classes (dual, online, and at the Vernon campus), trying to move, and oh yeah trying to be a mother and soon to be wife. If you can't tell, I am a little bit tired.

On a different note, it looks like I might get a care in the next few days. It is a four door, Chevy Malibu 2001. I really hope that this deal goes through because I could use something better and more reliable. Please pray or send out good thoughts.

JR and I will get married on September 5th by the JP, but we will have a ceremony celebrating our love with family and friends in March. It just feels right to get married on this day but I don't want to take away the magic of a wedding from JR. He says he does not care, but I know that is a lie. I am nervous and scared but I know this is were I am suppose to be. I love him so much and he is the sweetest man I know. He loves me and takes care of me and Zoe so well. I could not ask for more.

Well, I am off to spend some time with Zoe. She wants me to watch a movie with her and be with her. She has told me quite often this week she does not like me working again. She never ever gets to see me. So I am off to be a Mommy.

I love you all and I wish you a great weekend.

I'm Engaged

So here is how it happened. JR and I went to Abilene to pick up Zoe and to also have a short five day vacation with family. Things went crazy that weekend, that is for another blog, but overall it was a great vacation.

On August 4th, we went to the Abilene Zoo. It was a cool 100 degrees and the kids were in a great mood. (I'm hot, I'm thirsty, I'm tired) But we ventured on, because after all who doesn't like the Zoo. :-)

Well, we got in front of the Black Rhino area and JR stopped me, the kids and Nicole went on, in fact I think I heard my sister yell at Jack to come when he called me. JR grabbed my hand and looked into my eyes.

He said: Sarah, in front of the same place that where your Dad asked your Mom I want you to be my everything. (Getting down on one knee and tears welling in my eyes) Sarah will you marry me?

And of course I said YES!!!! And we kissed and he picked me up in a big hug. It was awesome and it made me so happy. At that point, Nicole and all the kids started cheering because they of course knew. Everyone knew but me. He did a good job and I could not of asked for a better way for him to ask.

The back story to him asking me in front of the Rhinos, is that that used to be the Elephant Area. My father, almost forty years ago, asked my Mother to marry him in front of the Elephants and JR knew that. Isn't that perfect!

We don't have a date yet but I will let you know as soon as we have decided something. I really am happy and very much in love. JR is a blessing to my life.
