hiiii, second day of school!

it is necessary that I start this post with this picture...because GOSH, I love him!

second day in to school, and life is GRAND.
Sometimes during summer, I forget for a minute how much I genuinely love my job.
And I just hope everyone can fill as fulfilled at their jobs as I do!

^oh, and the above picture is meant to illustrate the polo I was supposed to wear the other day (story mentioned in last post)^
and also...classroom selfies are back in session.
please notice the door behind me.
my TA last year (and this year) has an "ode" to herself door. and she writes me notes every single day.
it is the funniest thing ever.

So life is sooo hectic.
I am scrambling to prepare sub plans for all of next week...because...HAWAII!
we are sooo excited!!
EXCEPT the weather forecast says it's supposed to rain ALL NINE DAYS!
but we are really praying that is NOT the case!

so yesterday, taylor and I were out to dinner and I spotted two of my new sophomore students.
two identical twin boys who are just adorable!
their mom came up to me and told me that they were really excited for my class.
and then she says (with them standing right there), "and they both think you're really pretty!"
they went BRIGHT PINK and just started sending death stares at their mom.
it was soooo funny.
then they bee-lined it out of the restaurant, and their mom said, "I think I might be in trouble..."
taylor and I were laughing so hard!

okkkk and can we talk about how DARLING my sister is!?
she is serving a mission, and I haven't seen her in 9.5 months!
but I am so excited that I have one school year to make it through and then I can give that little sister of mine one GIANT HUG!!

the eve of the first day of school, taylor and I headed to the temple.
and it was honestly one of the best temple trips we've had together.
we shared some really special moments and had some really special experiences...and just WOW. the temple is such a cool place!

^okay, and THIS picture. you guys, taylor is getting GRAY hair! like soooo much! hahah and I AM DYING. it is the hottest thing ever. my little salt-and-pepper haired boy. can you see it there on the side? I am PRAYING I get a 50-year-old silver-haired FOX! SO HOT SO HOT HA
