Here's what went through my head in the span of like THIRTY SECONDS.
First thought : "YAAAAAAY!!! NOW I CAN GO VISIT JARED AND HIS FAMILY!!!!"
Second thought: "Oh crap, I'm gonna have to change all my lesson plans!!!"
Third thought: "WAIT A MINUTE, WE ARE REALLY OUT OF SCHOOL FOR A WEEK!?!?"
Then, my principal explained that we WOULDN'T have to change our lesson plans, because we would be sending all their work home to complete with their parents.
I couldn't have asked for a better situation!!! I thank God everyday for His wonderful blessings, but this was an EXTRA BONUS!!!
So, I immediately called Jared and told him the good news. He was excited. Then, I get a phone call from his mom saying that she was so excited that I was coming, but just had to ask, "why did we get out of school?" I explained that there were SO MANY kids out because of the flu, stomach virus, and strep throat, that they decided to just cancel school for a week so everyone could get better.
Now, I felt bad that so many kids were sick, but I prayed that they got better quickly, and I high tailed it outta town to visit my boyfriend and his family!!! :)
Jared and I were SO THANKFUL for this special extra time to spend together since we went THREE AND A HALF WEEKS without seeing each other!!!
