What’s Next?

It’s been awhile since I have updated on here.  Apparently I am a busy girl!  I am trying to figure out the direction of this blog.  Now that I am working and both kids are in school, the fun activities are not getting done. I still keep my eye out on fun activities, but haven’t been any for awhile.  I love crafting and doing things with my kids so I hope an can still continue some fun ones every now and then.

So, I have been at my job for a month now.  The first day was absolutely nerve racking!  But now, it’s like old news!  I love my job.  I love the staff and I love the kids.  Everyday seems to be different.  I start my day with the kindergartners.  They are funny little human beings!  I also work with second graders and 4th graders.  It’s really interesting to start my day with kindergartners and end the day with 4th graders. 

I am only working 4 hours a day.  Right now, that is a super perfect schedule for me.  I still have a couple hours to myself during the day.  Get stuff done, run errands! It’s perfect!  And the extra cash is pretty nice to have!

Jayden is loving 1st grade.  It’s going a million times better than last year.  His teacher is amazing.  It is such a relief!  Not one day last year did he come home and say he had an awesome day.  He has said that almost everyday this year!  He has had to adjust to a new classroom, but he’s doing GREAT!   I’m a happy mom!

Josie is doing great in kindergarten.  She’s having a hard time in the mornings when we go to school.  I am still having to walk her all the way in.  I stop at her room door though.  I am slowly working on making her more independent.  She just loves her mom too much I guess!  She has a GREAT teacher too. I can’t ask for a better start for Josie!  She cracks me up with the stories she comes home with.  I should be writing them down, but I don’t.  I may regret this someday.

I have learned a few things over the last four weeks:

1.  It’s GREAT to be back in the workforce again.  Even though it’s only for a short time each day.  It makes me feel important again!  It’s a rewarding job and I am glad it fell in to my hands. ( And I have got to buy a whole new closet full of clothes!)

2.  My kids are awesome kids.  They do their best.  They treat others with respect.  I hope I have done something right and they keep being the kids they are. 

3.  After being in the schools and having an inside look at what goes on, I have to hand it to the teachers.  This school system expects A LOT out of the teachers.  They don’t always get the credit they deserve.  I have worked on a few things for some teachers and have thought how tedious it is and how much work they have to do, it’s just crazy.  They don’t get thanked or appreciated enough!  So, I want to say thank you to all the teachers out there. 

I’m not sure where this blog is going to go from here, but I am sure I will come up with something.  Happy Fall and I hope everyone’s school year is off to a good start like ours!  Anything is better than last year!
