First Day of School

Today was my first day of school! It is really hard to believe that it has already been 5 years since I left the classroom to have our twins. I have loved each and every moment of being home with the twins and then Jackson. I know that this time will be a time of transition for our family, but it is a decision that we have been praying about for months now.

I will be teaching 1st grade and I have a class with 12 students! Joshua and Abby Kate are excited about going back to school this year and were really happy to see some of their classmates from last year at orientation today. Fridays are going to be "Daddy Days". Since Jason is off on Fridays, he will be keeping all 3 kids home with him. I know that they are all very excited about their daddy time!

Congratulations on your new job (one of many)!!! I know you will do great. I too have decided to join the working force this year. One thing I have learned is that your children need quality time not just quantity.....keep us updated.

Oh, Drew goes for his Endo follow up appointment on Wednesday. I will let you know how it goes!!!!
