I love Megan Jones.

I am sorry I deleted my facebook without asking you first. I love you and know our friendship will be maintained.

Zeph 3:17

The LORD your God is with you,
He is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with his love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.
Zephaniah 3:17

She said... He says sometimes :]

As you might've noticed, we've got about a 1-5+ posting ratio on Isaac-BonnieJean posts and my posts are "girly" and sometimes {or often} are very random... so this is going to be more of an She said.... He says sometimes. Haha. We want a blog to keep everyone {i.e. family and friends} up to date on our life happenings... we want to stay connected to everyone we love as we are all spread all over the place.

You might have also noticed that we re-decorated this space :] I am very much loving the new layout and design! Really fits our new She said... He says sometimes :]

BIG news!! WE FOUND THE CAMERA CORD!! Yay! So here is a picture of us from the first day of school (over a month ago, 9/2/10) :] Isaac even got up early and was such a trooper! Of course he went right back to bed immediately afterwards, but hey, what guy wants to get up to take an outfit picture at 6:45 AM? Doesn't he look great though?? :] I'm one lucky lady!

So we've been student teaching for almost 2 months now, and we're really loving it! Isaac is in a 1st grade classroom at Browns Point Elementary School (4 blocks from our home) and I am a less than 5 minute drive up the hill teaching 6th grade (math, language arts, social studies) at Meeker Middle School. Ironically, we have very similar stories to share each night (who knew there were so many similarities between 1st and 6th grade??) More updates on this in the near future!

You may have noticed the board in the lower left hand corner of the above picture. It was a gift from our wonderful wedding planner (Kerra Breum). She put it together and it has a bunch of special items/moments from our wedding and we cant wait to get it hung up. She is so sweet and thoughtful and we are loving seeing the beautiful reminders of our wedding that she created for us :]

Well, it's officially 10:12 PM {aka waaaay past my bed time} so I must get to bed! One last thing before I go.... guess what you will never believe that I did today.... I, BonnieJean Thomas, deleted my FACEBOOK. Yes, it is true. And it was EASY. I was just done. I couldn't think of any valid reasons to keep it, and tons and tons of reasons to abandon ship, so I just had to. I will {obviously} still have the blog to connect with people through, but no more Facebook. I am not saying I'll never go back, but with the hiring process around the corner, and not having enough time to get swept up in yet another time sucking activity, it seemed like the right decision for me at this time. Haha, I should not have this much to say about this topic, so I will now stop.

Hope your lives are filled with smiles, contagious laughter, and inspiring people, just like ours have been working with these kids everyday.
