As soon as my feet hit the floor in the morning, my Summer break will officially be over. What's crazy is that it feels like it's taking me by surprise. I don't know how it slipped my mind that I have a training class at 8:30 in the morning for the new Kids Day Out program I'll be working for. Tuesday I'll be getting my classroom ready at the OTHER Mom's Day Out program I teach at. Wednesday I'll be getting my KDO classroom ready. Thursday is Open House at MDO. Friday I'll take a breath. Saturday I'll be taking A LOT of breaths in a CPR certification class. Saturday night we have a friend's bbq to attend. Then the following week will be back to teaching!
Let me tell you, after a couple of months of only being busy when I chose to be, the events coming up feel a tad overwhelming! It will be good to get back to teaching. If there's one thing I love about being a teacher, it's that right when you feel like you need a break to rejuvenate with fresh ideas and a larger dose of patience, you get it in the form of Summer break. Then just when you get bored and restless, it's time to go back. I couldn't ask for better jobs than the ones God blessed me with. I also still serve as assistant editor to the local family magazine called Peekaboo! I like to joke that I have three jobs, yet I'm home more than a person with one job! That's the beauty of them all being part-time! Oh, and did I mention that I'm still sewing and selling at True Treasures? So I guess I kinda have four jobs... Sweet!
Thank you, Lord, for all your blessings. I pray to be a positive example in my students' lives this year and to show them abundant, unconditional love and patience. And to teach them the things that they need to learn!
