We're back baby!

Friday was my last day of teaching.  It was bittersweet, but mostly sweet.  It's amazing the stress I now feel lifted off my shoulders.  I will miss the kiddos and they were so sad to see me leave, but I know I am making the right decision.

We started Mrs. Mommy school yesterday.  Kyla seriously ate it up.  All day she kept saying "Mama, I wanna do school!"  I will post more about what we're up to later, but here are a few things she did today.

Counting practice (she loves the velcro)

Lots of Letter A activities (these magnets seriously kept her busy for an hour).
Kase wasn't as excited.  I really just tried to sit down with him and work on new words.  He'd rather climb on the table, shoot baskets, and try to grab whatever Kyla is working on.  But we've had two awesome days at home.

I went out and got a new laptop tonight so I will be back to regular blog posts finally.  I can't wait to get back at it and back to reading my favorite blogs.  I've missed you all!

I saw this quote this morning.  It is perfect and a great reminder of why I've made this decision.


  1. Welcome back! I ordered those magnets :-) We must plan a play date in Dubuque again some time!
