New Dream: Toyota Sienna Minivan:
As much as I wanted to get away from the minivan, when John and I looked again at the Buick
Enclave--it was just too small for storing suitcases for 6. So, we are looking now at a Toyota Sienna minivan...so much space and it makes me smile. It's looking like we will need til November to save up for this purchase, but that's ok. As I type, I think of lots of others that I am surrounded by with heartache, needed miracles, and a minivan dream seems quite silly. We have had a whirlwind of a week at work. We are waiting for a very dull and boring Friday. We were hoping for that today, but alas--it was not to happen.
I have learned this week to---pray for miracles, be calm and respond to student emergencies, walk through a fire-alarm that wasn't real--but not a drill...and be thankful for all of these because I have learned so much about being prepared as a teacher and just simply to pray.
I am thinking I will take a CPR course this summer to even be more prepared. Teaching is not for the faint of heart--hmmm....never thought of it that way until the last two years and lots of state-side emergencies at schools not just my own.
