Mastering a Mountain

I hiked up a mountain on Tuesday with a couple of girls. It was one of the hardest hikes I have ever done in my life! I wasn't so sure I was going to make it to the top a couple of times. When you have blisters the size of quarters on your heels and you have to sing "Put your shoulder to the wheel" over and over to yourself to keep going, I think it might be a hike that shouldn't have been started. Well, the good thing for me was I had really nice friends to wait for me and I am extreemly greatful that at least on the way back everything was down hill (imagin what it was like on the way up!) Let's just say that I won't be doing any major hiking again anytime soon. Well, at least not until I can get into better shape.

I am so proud of myself! I have survived my first year of teaching and I only have a few emotional scars. I am just so happy to have made it to this point in my life where I can say that I have accomplished some of my goals and that I am on track to make a difference in the world. I was a little sad to have to say goodbye to my kids, for they were my life for the past eight months. I will miss them, but I am also excited for the oppertunity to plan for next year and to have at least a little bit of fun this summer. I will have to report more about that at a later time.
