Love My Students

Two amazing, blog worthy things were said this morning when I was teaching my high school students. I love them!

Randomly, one of the girls said, "Can I go to your wedding if you ever get married?" Ouch. IF??? Ok, I know it's a longshot if I stick around Utah, but come on! Have a little faith....I'm awesome, someday somebody's going to want me!


One of my other students likened boys to penguins. I mentioned that boys are funny, they normally don't want to be the first from their group of friends to get married. He said that they are like penguins, they will all crowd at the ledge and get close but won't take the leap until another one has either fallen in, jumped or been pushed. I think it's the perfect analogy.

Hi Rachel! I just love your blogs. They make me happy when I read them. P.S. Your photo on the previous blog was so pretty of you! If I was a guy, I would totally marry you.

Don't worry, I have noticed a lot more "ifs" mentioned in the same sentence as me and marriage recently too... wait maybe it was from me since I turned 26 and moved to Utah amongst 19 year old college students....

Would you jump into freezing cold shark infested waters? If you ask me, the penguins are pretty smart. :)
