Well I don't know about ya'll, but I've had a LOT of help in my life! In addition to all of the emotional support I've always been able to rely on from my good friends and family, I've had people go above and beyond to help me with all of the crazy projects I take on. I could go on and on. However, I've been most recently blessed by a group of ladies at my school.
Ya'll all know that I was already spoiled from being on a truly awesome team at PSE for so many years. In fact, my awesome team at PSE was the Number 1 reason why leaving PSE was difficult. Needless to say, they were a VERY hard act to follow.
When I arrived at SSE the first thing that I noticed was that my new team mostly consisted of newbies like me (Sam & Wendy) or ladies who all reminded me of my mother (Karen, Jane, Carol) . Seeing as my mother is always a great help to me and I to her, I saw this as a great thing. These ladies are full of wisdom, elbow grease, creativity and a positive attitude! Sure enough, I wasn't on this team for 5 minutes before we all jumped in and they helped me sell school supplies (which by the way was the yuckiest thing I've ever done and hope never to do it again).
This year we worked together on the 5th grade show. They helped me out by painting the backdrop for the 5th grade show and by teaching the choreography and sewing a few costumes. Here are some pictures of us working on the backdrop together.... the funny thing is that all we really did was paint the middle and bottom and then we assisted Karen as she was the primary executor of all things involving a ladder. It's such a blessing to feel a part of a great team again! I was literally broken hearted when I left my old school and these ladies made it possible for me to find a soft place to land at my new favorite school SSE. SSE is blessed to have such fine dedicated teachers as you.

Jane was the great organizer of children backstage which is a thankless job
And Carol taught all of the dances - what an Awesome team!
