How sad that my followers have been deprived of my whitney goodness as Prest would put it. Well I have been busy and trying to survive so blogging hasnt been in the picture i guess.

I got over it the first of Jan and now I have a new cold and its the 3rd week of Jan...pretty pathetic eh? .... that reminds me Jennifer and I spend the whole night the other day quoting the movie The Emperor's New Groove while we watched it....beware of the groooovvvveee! haha I love it! I have been hanging out with my co-worker Jennifer Green, she is fab!

I gave a talk in sacrament today and I have to admit it was the haha I owe it all to the Lord for his guidance in what to say but I definatly felt like i did well! LOVE IT!

Temple Lights!

This last weekend our family went to the SLC temple square, to the temple lights. It was breath taking, not just because it was cold outside haha but because it was so beautiful. It was good weather too it wasnt too cold. We bundled up and walked around then we listened to some carolers and sat in the tabernacle. It was a fun night. It was my first time ever going to the lights.
So this week I have been so sick. Its kinda nasty, I have lost my voice for the whole week and I have a cough like no other ha its been a fabulous experience...NOT haha! I have had a great last few months being a teacher's assistant. My teachers that I work with told me that because of me everything works out okay and I make them look good as teachers because of all the behind the scenes work that I do for them. They were begging me not to get married and they want to convince the principal to rehire me. Ha! What a great compliment but im getting married to the man I love and they can try to convince me all they want hahahah! I am excited though they want me to bring Preston to the school to volunteer in the spanish classes with me for the first few days he is home, so that will be fun! 55 days!

The swift winds of change.

I have realized that as time has gone on that I have had more responsibilities placed on my shoulders. More decisions as an adult. Ever since I was 18 I was forced to be my one adult and adjust to how life changes even though we may not want it to. I know that a lot of times I don't feel quite yet ready for the changes that I am placed into or the extra responsibilities and choices that adults make. I have learned to be completely in dependant in making my life's choices, but now I get the extra help and thoughts of the man I love to help me make the choices that I have in life. I am ready to embrace the next chapter in my life whether others are willing to accept it or not, I want to make the best of it and embrace it with open arms. The Lord doesn't give us challenges we cant handle and I have learned that myself through my life's challenges and also by watching others go through trials.

I am so ready for the holidays. The joyful and cheerful feelings that come with the Christmas spirit make me so happy, I just want it to come and fill me with some good cheer. I love working with the children in my classes. they make things so funny and simple. For just a few hours each day I can appreciate the simple fun things in life that children bring. I got to read a cute Thanksgiving book to my 1st graders it was so fun to hear the fun remarks from them. I even get those cute little kids that come up to me and want to give me a hug or tell me something cool that happened to them at recess. Children are so great, I have learned that I defiantly want to teach as a profession. Preston's flight itinerary came this week. Time is flying and its become more real now that we have his flight info and it kinda gives me hope that "yes" he will come home.

He never said it would be easy, but it will be worth it!

Tengo un nuevo trabajo, enseñando español

I got a job as an Assistant Spanish teacher in the Spanish Imersion program at Sand Springs Elementary.The objective of the Spanish Immersion Program is to provide a quality second language learning experience for students during their key language acquisition years at no expense to their primary language development. The program is research based and provides a culturally diverse experience for the entire school community. The district along with the faculty and staff at Sand Springs Elementary are united in their support of this school choice opportunity for students.

The Spanish Immersion Program at Sand Springs Elementary is designed for students whose primary language is the dominant language of society (English) upon entry to school. In the Immersion Program, a second language (Spanish), along with the students’ home language, is used to teach regular school subjects. A major objective of the immersion program is oral fluency and literacy in both English and Spanish.

For the Spanish portion of class, students will be immersed in the second language. The teacher will only speak Spanish and instructional materials will be in Spanish. The teacher, using multi modalities will communicate through visuals, songs, body language, expression and drama to achieve understanding. Beginning in first grade, there will be a clear and sustained separation of languages during instructional time. Students will have two teachers and two classrooms. (If enrollment numbers remain consistent.) Fifty percent of a student’s instructional time will be spent in the “Spanish” classroom with the “Spanish” teacher and 50 percent of their instructional time will be spent in the “English” classroom with the “English” teacher. It is amazing how quickly a young child is able to understand the new language and speak in words, phrases, and sentences.
I will primarily be working with the 1st and 2nd grade. I will be assisting the teacher in teaching, grading papers, and helping with all activities in the classroom, all in spanish!

True Love

Preston-"A Scripture that I wanted to share with you before I go is Alma 32:28, but everytime it says the word ¨seed¨, I want you to put ¨love¨. That´s how I feel about our love. It´s a wonderful feeling. I love you Whitney Dawn Robbins, I truely and deeply do. =)"

28 Now, we will compare the word unto LOVE. Now, if ye give place, that LOVE may be planted in your heart, behold, if it be true LOVE, or good LOVE, if ye do not cast it out by your unbelief, that ye will resist the Spirit of the Lord, behold, it will begin to swell within your breasts; and when you feel these swelling motions, ye will begin to say within yourselves—It must needs be that this is good LOVE, or that the word is good, for it beginneth to enlarge my soul; yea, it beginneth to enlighten my understanding, yea, it beginneth to be delicious to me.

I love him!

I know that my redeemer lives.

I love all the feelings of my heart, and the strong assurance of the testimony of the everlasting gospel. I know that Jesus Christ died for me and I thank him daily, I am so grateful to know that I can return to the Savior's presence again. I know that the atonement is real. I know that without it I couldn't be anything. I know that one day Ill have the opportunity to feel the prints in the Savior's hands and feet and I will be able to know not any more than I know already that he is the Christ. I am so grateful for the Temple of the Lord. I got the opportunity to take my sister back to do temple work and I had such a comfort of the spirit. I know that I will be able to be sealed to my one true love for time and all eternity. I can and will have an eternal family. I love to see the miracles in my life, even though when bad things happen I know that the Lord is still blessing me with things that I need in my life. I am truly grateful. I love my family and my friends for the constant love they give me! I am grateful for the amazing man I have in my life. For the settle comfort he gives me even from thousand miles away I can still feel his love and comforting arms around me telling me everything will be OK even though I don't think they will. I am truly blessed with my our perfect man. He may not be perfect but he is my kind of perfect. I love Preston with all that I have to give. Sometimes I don't really understand all the feelings that come from my heart and how I can have the most firm love for another person like I do for the Savior but I know that he is the one for me.

... Then sings my soul my Savior God to thee, How great thou art, How great thou art!!
