Do I smell???

This question has been plaguing me since about 7:45 this morning... 

Today was my last half day of school with the kiddos.  It was VERY bittersweet to say the least.  These little boogers have been with me through some fairly huge events.  Throughout this school year I was a nomad (before we got married I lived in several different places), I got married, and I graduated.  The kids have been so sweet and understanding--a truly unforgettable group of children.  They say there is always that "one class"--a special one you won't forget.  I truly believe this might have been mine.  I wish I could take the time to share all of the special moments from the school year--there are so many!  I wish God's richest blessings on all 22 little ones--may God continue to give them successes in life.  I will miss them!

On to the title of my post...I have a very sweet little girl in my class that brought me a gift today on our last day of school.  She had written me a really sweet letter about her school year and drawn me a picture of the two of us--I looked great!  However, buried in the tissue paper I found the real gift.  A 4-pack of Dove deodorant.  All I could say was, "Oh...Wow."  I finally just had to ask, "Should this be telling me something? Do I smell?"  The child emphatically replied, "No!"  However, she never really explained either.  Therefore, I spent the rest of the day hounding my teaching buddies about whether or not they thought that I smelled.  Self-conscious much???  Get a multi-pack of deodorant as a gift and you sure will be!

***If you know me and at any point have felt that I do in fact smell, please feel free to let me know.  It's already out in the open anyway. :)

  1. Love your bathroom progress - Your Mom said if it worked on yours, they would try mine next - can't wait. It's amazing what all you have done to that house in such a short time.

    By the way, when I closed my "Facebook" account (and I found out you can truly delete it, not just deactivate it so it should be permanently closed in ten days) anyway, to finish my sentence, I put your blog page on my desktop, so it would be easy to get to. I enjoy it so much.

    One day soon, I need to come over during the week days while you have some free time and work on your stove top. Just make us some plans for a time and date.....

    Love my girl so much,
