I was hired this week to be a preschool teacher for our church's school. I will work from 5 days a week from 8-12. The BEST part about the job is that both of my girls will be with me at all times. I mean, who could ask for anything better? Erik and I had already decided to enroll Lucy in the 5 day a week program and Ella will be starting Kindergarten there as well. So we will ride in together each morning and they can hang out in my "classroom" (he he! It feels funny saying that) until school starts and then most days Lucy will leave with me when school is out. We can go home, nap, or run errands and then pick up big sister. Its a perfect scenario--one fully orchestrated by God.
This decision has been bathed in prayer by not only me and Erik, but also by my parents and close friends. I appreciate everyone's support through this whole event. I would be lying if I said I was not apprehensive. I mean, i've never had to get myself and 2 girls completely ready to walk out of the door by 7:20ish every day--on a consistent basis. Most days last year, I did not even wake Ella up until 7! Then I usually took her to school while still in my pajamas. It's going to be a rude awakening to this momma. But Erik will be great to help out and Ella is fairly self-sufficient at this point. The list of apprehension could go on and on, but I am going to focus on the positive. God is in control and I will fully rely on Him to get me through!
So, here's to the future..here's to now!
