From 2 to 16

My class size has just increased. Instead of using my Early Childhood Certification to "teach" my own two everyday, I will now be teaching 16 or so five and six year olds as the new kindergarten teacher at the same school where I used to work (also where I did my student teaching and where I attended 2nd through 5th grade). I was just hired today and school starts next Wednesday! Yikes!! I'll meet the kids and parents Monday night when they come for Orientation and I'll be in meetings on Monday and Tuesday morning so it'll be interesting to see how fast I can move to get everything in place by Wednesday morning when the kids arrive at 7:45.

Connie's doing well. His back up glasses arrived and they need to be made smaller. Not sure what we'll do. I think I'll just get some crazy glue for his first set to get that pesky earpiece to stay on.

Mookie starts preschool two mornings a week beginning on Aug. 19th so our little family is about to go through some pretty big changes. Please pray that we are more tender and patient with one another during this time of transition and that we will feel the Lord giving us strength and easing our anxieties.

p.s. If you are free Mon or Tues early afternoon, I'd love the help in my classroom. Call me!

Erin: I have not commented in a long time, but keep up with how your little one is doing. He is certainly one amazing little guy! Cute too! :) I have been reading about another little girl named Madalynn who has the same defect that Conway has. I thought maybe you would like to read about her and communicate with her mom. Their carepage is www.caringbridge.org/visit/madalynngarcia. Have a good week!

Blessings to you and your family as you make these new changes in your daily routine.

We are making many changes this year, also, and it just isn't easy!

Take care,
