For those of you who knew me as a child or a teenager, you'll understand my excitement of this news I'm about to share.Today I got a very special phone call from my dear friend Talia. I'll start by telling you a bit about Talia. We first met during elementary in 1st grade... eventually discovering we lived in the same subdivision just down the street from eachother. She quickly became my best friend. Through out elementary we had several classes together. We spent countless recesses playing together, sleepovers, birthday parties, play dates, etc. The beautiful thing is that our friendship overcame "teenage trials" and continued through out high school. When I ventured off to college in Idaho so far away from home, she was the one friend to buy her own plane ticket and come visit me. In 2002 she stood in my bridal party as one of my bridesmaids and in 2005 I received the honor of standing in her bridal party as a bridesmaid. She was there snuggling Isaac the first week of his life as well as my little Bella. Summing it up, she has been my friend for almost 20 years and we have several amazing and wonderful memories together. Now you may better understand why her phonecall was so cool today.
She just recieved a job teaching at Isaac's future elementary school and will now be Isaac's Early 5's teacher beginning this fall!!! I was totally psyched. When she started college to become a elementary teacher we always joked that maybe one day she'd teach my children... but it was always a joke. I must say that as a first time mom sending a child off to public schools I have been so nervous. And now, knowing that my friend of over 20 years will be with him every day is just so exciting and awesome... I couldn't help but to share such cool news with all of you.
