Today I turned in my intent to return, or I guess my intent "not" to return to school next year. It was really hard! I had been going back and forth, tossing around the idea of maybe putting "yes" just in case something happened with the baby, or in case my mind changed... But, in the end, I was honest and just said "no" to returning next year. I struggled so much because this is a really big deal! Teaching has been my life for the past 5 years... yes, I'm excited to stay home next fall and I'm sure I'll be busy with two, but it is hard to think about not being in the classroom. No, I'm not giving it up for forever. I know I'll teach again down the road, but it will be a big adjustment for me. And today I kinda felt like I was signing my life away, or giving up something I will really miss. I do feel like I'm doing the right thing, though, and I know I won't regret being able to spend every day with my kids.
I had our dance team banquet tonight, so the season is officially over :( Addie had her second babysitter tonight and she did great! It probably had something to do with the amazing babysitter she had though!
Brandt is in Texas again this week, but is coming home Wednesday. Then not much travel in the near future. We've almost made it!!!
