My first smiling thought is I am trying to figure out what the heck I am going to be for Halloween, I want something funny, I thought of just wearing an abstinence advocate t-shirt but that's more just funny than Halloweenish. Chad is going to be Mr. Clean...perfect I know. But my smiling thought was that he should be Brittany Spears (shaved head) and have a little skirt on and boobies! Ha, I crack my self up some times...if you have any costume ideas please share!
SO I currently am teaching fall prevention classes for seniors in the Rexburg area, I teach at two different sites, one site all the students are WAY active, like some could go jogging but come for more of a social outlet than to prevent them from falling. But my other site, most can't even stand and are kinda a little out of it. I LOVE it, I seriously have SO much fun and am making some really neat friends! But my smiling story is yesterday in my 'not-so-active' group we had a big ball that we would pass to me and our neighbors and first I had them say their favorite holiday when they got the ball...after yelling at Myrtle for about 5 minutes she finally heard and said "Christmas is the best!" with a smile and shaking hands. Next time around I asked what their favorite animal was and Myrtle yells "Christmas!" Christmas also happened to be her favorite color as well as season and friend. Just completely made my day. I finish teaching these classes when I graduate and am already sad cause I love it and my students.
