Where I've been....

Hello my wonderful friends!
I know some of you may be wondering where I disappeared to :) Okay let's be real: most of you probably haven't noticed that I haven't blogged since AUGUST! But I'm back now, with a little explanation as to where I have been...I won't go into too much detail, because I know this is a teaching blog, but I did want to explain.

On August 1, my husband and I found out that we were expecting our first baby. We were elated, excited, soooo happy, and over the moon! <3
Everything was going great for the first several weeks - I was sick as a dog haha :) But happy to be sick, because I've always heard that's a good sign!
On September 3, we went in for an ultrasound, and got to hear our precious baby's heartbeat. What an amazing sound that was! It's definitely something I'll never forget! Our little bean had a strong heartbeat of 170 bpm and was growing like a little weed.
My next doctor's appointment was on October 1. I knew that it wouldn't be an exciting appointment, because we weren't having another ultrasound until we did our gender scan on October 25. So, I told my husband not to take off work - that I was fine to go by myself. BIG mistake.
Without going into too much detail, I found out when I was exactly 12 weeks along that our precious little miracle that we had prayed so hard for was in heaven with Jesus. I have been nothing short of devastated since that day, but I have the MOST wonderful husband, family, & friends in the world. I am so truly blessed.
I know that God has a reason for everything, and His plans are ALWAYS greater than my own. I know that my sweet angel is waiting for me in heaven, and we will be reunited one day.

I know that miscarriage is very common - so much more common than I realized. God has sent so many people in my path in the past 6 weeks, and I just look up at Him and smile. I know that He will use this terrible situation for his glory. I also know - because He tells me so - that my husband and I will get our baby one day - in His time.

Like I said - I just wanted to give you a little update as far as where I'm at right now :) I'm still teaching my heart out in 3rd grade, and my babies keep me smiling everyday!

I promise to be back in the blogging world very soon!
