Let Me {Re} Introduce Myself

Happy Thursday! Hope your January is off to a great start!

Yesterday was the girls first day back to school. Honestly, I was a hot mess dropping Elizabeth off at school. I felt like I was dropping a kindergartner off for the first time! I wasn’t worried about the people not taking good care of her, I just hate the fact that this is Elizabeth’s life now and she has to deal with this disease.

Her teachers, the school nurse, and the principals were wonderful with her and she had a great day! I know it will get easier to leave her, but it’s just hard!

Anyways, today I wanted to take the time to reintroduce myself to everyone! If you are new here, you’ll learn a little more about me.

I’m Jen and a fanatic about capturing my family’s memories and writing them down on my blog for my girls <and me> to look back on one day.

I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Christopher, for 13 years. <Will be 14 years in June.> We started dating when I was 15 years old, but I will never tell my girls that!

We have two beautiful girls, Elizabeth and Emily.

Elizabeth just turned 11 and in the 5th grade. She is a T1D warrior and such a strong girl! She loves to cheer and play volleyball and is a great friend.

Emily is almost 10 and in 4th grade. She is our feisty girl that goes non-stop. She loves to watch YouTube videos and plays outside every chance she gets.

I am an 8th grade math teacher and assistant volleyball coach. I LOVE my job and working with students every day. There is never a day that’s the same and that’s what makes it so interesting!

I have a very close immediate family and love every chance I get to spend with them! Chris is an only child, but I have one sister and we are really close with her and her family. I’m thankful for a loving family!

Some other fun facts about me:

  • I stay up late almost every night just to have time to myself. I am learning to run on only 6 hours of sleep.
  • I am 6′ tall and sometimes feel like a giant compared to my friends.
  • I hate wearing socks in the house or to bed and don’t understand how people do that!
  • I hate the cold weather and am always freezing.
  • I am crazy obsessed with keeping a clean house, but don’t you dare look in my closets or drawers~ they are so messy!
  • I used to drink 5 Dr. Peppers a day but haven’t had a soda yet this year! {This is a big deal}
  • I can say all the books of the Bible from memory.

2017 was a rough year for my family and I was so thankful to have my blog to share my feelings with others. I’m the type of person that needs to talk <type> it all out to help me feel better!

The support from my blog has been amazing! I can’t thank you enough for following along with my crazy Bolin Bunch. I look forward to a great 2018 together.

I’ll see you tomorrow for Friday Favorites! Have a great day.
