So much to say. . .so little time!

I am sorry for my long absence from blogging. . .even though Jaxon was due to arrive in June, he arrived last week (Saturday, May 26th at 3:01 p.m.)!  My original due date was June 12th.  He was 7.3 pounds, 19 inches. . .if he had stayed in the womb for two and a half more weeks. . .OH BOY-don't know if I could have made it. . .he would have been nearly 10 pounds!

I was out of school for the last few weeks of school so I was able to rest and hang out with my boys for about a week before his arrival.  During the first few weeks of May I had so much to share, but I was in the process of packing up my entire classroom because for the next few years [at least] I'll be staying home with my little guys!  I am SO excited to take this opportunity to focus on helping them learn and grow.  You'll notice that I'll still post resources, articles, and tips for children-just with a different focus.  I've renamed the blog "Perspectives."  I am so thrilled to share my point of view on parenting, pre-school learners, and primary education.  I have a few teacher friends who have agreed to let me come into their classrooms every now and then to shadow, teach mini-lessons, or work with small groups.  If you're in the DFW area and you're willing to share your kiddos with me, just send me an e-mail.

I know I'm going to miss teaching tremendously, but I have already started working on lesson plans and activities for Christian and Solomon.   I promise to update the blog with more pictures soon. . .right now I'm just trying to get adjusted to a new sleep schedule!  I hope you had a fabulous end of your school year, and if you're still going-just hang in there!  Thank you for your patience with me during this school year.  It was one of my most busy, challenging years yet. . .I couldn't have done it without my amazing husband and the best teammates in the world-Jasmine, Colleen, Genese, and Brandy!

I love this guy SO much. . .just when I thought all the pieces of my heart were taken, God allowed me to see that I have so much more love to give!  I feel so blessed!
