Engagement Photos!

My "excited" face.

We love our iPhones. Not as much as each other but, we love Apple.

Something tells me our children might have blue eyes, :)

Pinterest inspired

MUWAH!

Save the date!


Bling, bling!

He liked it...so he put a ring on it.

Skipped my introduction..oops :)

      Hello everyone! I just realized that I probably should have introduced myself for those who might actually read this. :)

     My name is Erika Barbee (soon to be Word...I kind of jumped the gun on the name for now..I get married in December..yay!). I have an Associate in Art and I will soon have an Associate in Early Childhood Education. I am in the Early Childhood Education Program at Gainesville State College in Gainesville, Ga. I am working on my Bachelors while working at Hallmark.
 
     As I stated above, I am soon to be wed in December to the greatest man I could ever imagine. I was meant to be a teacher with the (soon to be) last name of WORD. :) We have 3 childr...eh, I mean...dogs; 2 bassets and one German Shepherd/Doberman mix. We love them like they were of the human kind and I am sure you will see them on more than one occasion during my post.

     I enjoy educating the kids who will make this world a better place, volunteering with animal rescues to give animals a second chance at love, photographing inanimate objects**, the history of both this country and others that are far far older and simply learning any and everything I can to help me share it with everyone I meet.

     With this blog, I hope (once I get out there more and more) I can help those "Teacher Candidates" who are nervous/excited/confused/upset/ all of the above sort things out. I would also be honored for veteran teachers to share their knowledge with me to help me help others with any questions.

     I believe this is a good attempt to sum myself and my intentions up in one post. :) Like I stated in my very first post. I am going to try to update once a day if anything exciting/interesting happens.

     If you would like to comment, please feel free. I enjoy any kind of constructive criticism, suggestions and the like. :)

New Year, New Blog

Hello fellow bloggers. I have had a few blogs in my past but have not been able to keep up with them. I do not know what is possessing me to start another with school, work and planning a wedding but...why not? I enjoy reading all of the amazing teaching blogs and thought I might as well have one myself to both blog and save other blogs. I hope that this blog will help others with interesting, teaching information as well as some of my crazy life thrown in. :)
