  1. Enjoyed learning some more fun things about you! I hope your new teaching job is going well. It sounds like you are so excited and have such a passion for teaching (and your students). They are so lucky to have you!!! Love & blessings from NC!

  2. Hey Leslie! I just finished a 9 week Beth Moore study on Ruth. It was amazing, to say the least. Enjoy:)

  3. seriously. i could quote your answers to the "addicted to" question as my own answers! glad school is going well!

  4. Ugh. How did I get so far behind on your blog? You'd think I was the one starting back to school! :)


    I also love Will & Grace reruns. I had to stop watching Army Wives, though. It was just too much.

    Did you live in Missouri? Have we already had this conversation? (Am I losing my mind? Wait - don't answer that one.)


Love me some comments! If you don't have a Google/Gmail ID, please make sure you leave your name and/or email. Also, I moderate my comments so don't be alarmed if it doesn't show up right away. Thanks, y'all!
