New Fun Stuff!!!

Well, I have some news to share for those of you that don't already know. I got a teaching job! So, I will be out of the childcare world and into the public school teaching world once again. I start tomorrow!!!! That is why there have not been any posts here for a few weeks....just busy, busy, busy shutting down the daycare and getting ready for my classroom. I'll be teaching Kindergarteners 1/2 day and Early Childhood Special Ed Pre-kers the other 1/2 of the day. It's been bittersweet....I will miss my daycare kids. Some have been in my care (they themselves or their older siblings) for 5 1/2 years. I will miss them all. But, I'm soooo excited for this new adventure and am thrilled to be on the same schedule now with our boys.

We had a family reunion this weekend at my Aunt's. All of my brothers and their families were there...minus my sweet niece who was on a mission trip. And, my sis and family and parents and cousins and kids and more kids and more kids! It was a total blast.

My bro and sis-in-law are expecting their first baby and we had a little family shower for them at the reunion. I made 20 of these Thank You cards as part of their gift. I know they will get lots and lots of baby gifts so will need some Thank You cards. They are from Texas so the cowboy was just right for their little Buckaroo!!!

Hey Beth!!
I miss you, but can see that you are in the right place...I didn't realize that you start your job tomorrow!!
Will be praying it is a smooth transition for you and your family. I do admire your attitude, your energy, and your enthusiasm!
I think it is all a very good thing.
And your card is a cutie, just like you!
Hugs, Traci
