Catching Up

I love my job. I really do. While I am at school, I know I am making a difference in many children's lives. The children I work with need an extra push to become more confident readers and writers. I have known since I was six years old, assigning my three year-old sister worksheets and grading her work--strictly I am sure--that I would teach. But I miss my old life.

The one where I dropped Carson off and did my grocery shopping so I did not have to drag him to the store at 1:00 after preschool. The life where I could meet a friend at Panera and catch up over coffee. The life where I could hop on the treadmill and listen to worship music while I drowned out the rest of the world. The life where I could meet one of my best friends (and personal shrink--not officially) for a run/walk while our kids were at preschool. I miss the life where I found time to blog.

So, I am going to make more of an effort to do those things I miss. Yes, it will be a challenge. But those things are a part of me. They are what make me me. Maybe I will have to start getting up at 5 am and going to bed with my kids. Maybe I will have to make those things I miss happen on the weekends when my husband is at home. Right now, I am sneaking time to blog while my sweet husband (who recognized after a particularly stressful day yesterday) that I needed a break, took Carson to school for me. I'll probably finish this and have 10 minutes to get ready for school, but who cares. I will have taken a few minutes for me.

(Just need to make a side note here that my iphone just reminded me to "smile," something that happens at 9 am every morning. Another gesture made by my very sweet and thoughtful husband.)

So, I am on to Instagram now. I LOVE instagram because it allows me to view our week in pictures and has introduced me to some new blogs. Check it out.

The boys had fun picking out Justin's cast color. Blue was the final decision, after Justin talked me out of orange and blue stripes.
My Jonah. Can you see his tongue just barely sticking out? He is reading the final pages of Harry Potter: The Goblet of Fire. We told him he can read just one more, and then we will take a break until he is a little older. This child loves to read. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree...
