Starting a new adventure


Starting a new adventure.  Life is always changing for all of us..but this year I have made a big change, at least big for me.  It was scary and exciting all at the same time!

About 8 years ago I was put on bed rest when I was pregnant with my now 7 year old.  I wasn’t able to do my job so I stayed home and after my son was born I became a full time stay at home mom.  15 months after he was born we welcomed my second son to our family.  I have been home taking care of them since!  Last year my youngest started kindergarten and my older son was in 1st grade.  I loved being able to spend the first year of their school life with each of them.  Being a part of things like class parties, field trips and special days like that was such a huge blessing for me.  Now my life has changed.

Starting August 29th I became a mom that works outside of the home.  I am so blessed with the opportunity to start a job teaching 4 year old preschool kids.  My hours couldn’t be better.  I will still be able to take my kids to school and pick them up each day.  I will miss the birthday lunches and some of the class parties but the opportunity to help my family financially and to take some even if its just a small amount of the burden off my husband is awesome.

I have been working for 3 months now and I still feel like I’m trying to figure it all out.  I’m so in awe of all you mom’s that work 40 + hours outside of the house and still go home to take care of your family.  I work 25 to 30 hours a week and definitely struggle.

I am truly blessed and thankful for the job and for my family.
