Back To School

Wednesday was Ethan's first day of preschool and Mommy's first day at her new school and position. We survived the first week! YAHOOO! Ethan did great and enjoys playing with his new friends. It has been really neat to see him during the day. I try not to spy too much on him because he is learning how to see me in the hallway and just say Hi instead of running to me! We are not there totally, but we'll get there eventually. I love going by his room and looking in on him at circle time, lunch time, and nap time! I LOVE watching him in chapel when he is singing or when he is bothering the little girl sitting next to him! I get to see it all!!!! I think he is going to have a great year and doesn't he look so CUTE in his uniform!

As for first week as the Preschool Director went well! I am enjoying me new position and the staff! I am so blessed to work with such wonderful people that love the Lord and His children! On Friday, I had to go into the classroom for a few hours and teach while the teacher had to leave (it happened to be Ethan's that was interesting). While I enjoyed being with the children and teaching them at circle time, I also enjoyed the fact that I LEFT when the teacher returned! I never thought I would say that! Maybe God does have a GRAND plan, and I am meant to lead in this new position! It is totally different, and I have had to adjust to a different pace and responsibilities. I really feel that I am going to love my new position ...just as long as I get to have some interaction with the children!

For those of you who do not know..I am the new Preschool Director at Sugar Grove Christian School and Ethan is attending the preschool there with me! (Which is at our church..Sugar Grove Church of Christ)

Hope everyone has a great school year! Please keep both Ethan and I in your prayers. Pray that God will continue to give us strength during this transition in our lives. Pray that He will continue to guide me in my new position and in the decisions that I make. Thank you!
