Yesterday I took my teacher certification test, the Arizona Educator Proficiency Assessment, and spent about 3 hours for each section. Oh my goodness was it a bit challenging! I felt my whole energy was sucked out of me by the time I was done with it all! I hope that I passes the test and I know I did but I just am still nervous to get my results. I find out on August 11 whether I need to retake any part of the test. I really do not want to repeat any of it but I came out feeling better about the Subject Test than the Professional Knowledge. The hardest part is that you can narrow the answers down from 4 to 2 but the 2 that you are left with sound both correct. You then have to make the decision which one is the better of the two...why do they do such a thing to us?! Is it not enough that they make us take such long tests in the first place? My hand was in pain by the end of the day since I write 3 short responses and 1 essay, well it was more describing a lesson plan but still.
But someone very close to me reminded of God says about being anxious since I kept saying that I am getting nervous about finding my score out on the 11th:
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 4:6-7

So I made it saefly back to Phoenix Sunday night and saw my family right away as we celebrated Ethan's 4th birthday. But it is so hot here!! Todays forecast says it is suppose to be 114 F ...ahhh!!!! It is way too warm for that!!! Summer really has started here!! But that is what we have a pool for. I have gone swimming at least twice every day that I have been back.

I do miss being in Germany though!!!!!
