Welcome Home Elder Voorhees!

Chuck's brother Russell came home from his mission today. He served in the Guatemala City Central mission. He is the one brother I have yet to meet or spend time with. It is exciting to have him home!
Here we are at the airport :)

Mother's Day

I forgot I still had these pictures on my computer! For Mother's Day my students made signs for their moms and then I took their pictures and made a DVD to show during our program. Each sign was sooo cute! I put the song "You Are So Beautiful" by Ray Charles on the DVD to play with the pictures. It was a super cute slideshow for the moms to watch. Here are just two pictures out of the whole group. I think they are adorable!

Don't I have the cutest students ever?!


Nothing too exciting is happening in our lives at the moment. We are just busy as usual. I decided to make a little list of the things that are going on in our lives:
  • There is only 10 more days of school left! Yay!! I love teaching, but I am ready for summer break! I'm teaching summer school so there really is no break, but teaching a group of 3 is better than whole class at the moment.
  • My students put on a Mother's Day Program for their moms/grandma's. They were adorable and did a great job!
  • I felt our baby move for the first time on Saturday. I also got the flu on Saturday and was in the bathroom throwing up every five minutes for 6 hours.
  • I keep losing weight. I think I've lost 8-10 lbs. this pregnancy (due to my fight with food). I am starting to get a belly though, so I guess I'm gaining weight with in the losing weight.
  • I got a 3rd church calling. I am now Camp Director and will be going to camp when I'm about 7 months pregnant. I love Girl's Camp! :)
  • My favorite pair of shoes broke.
  • Chuck is playing on a softball team with a bunch of his friends. They have never played softball before, but they are fun to watch.
  • We are looking around at digital cameras and I'm excited to purchase one.
  • I entered my student's class book into a writing contest and we won $50. We are going to have an Author's Party!!!
  • I made Chuck go and see Made with Honor (a movie) with me. I don't recommend it.
  • I like to sleep. I'm always tired. Sleep is good!

That is about it! We love the spring/summer weather that shows up on random days. We would love to have a bbq or go to the park and play if any of you are interested. :)
