I have a confession to make....since I've had children I have always envied stay at home moms. I did stay at home with both of mine until they were 8 months old(both had December birthdays and I took the spring semester off from teaching each time)....but I HATED going back to work. With both babies so close together I just needed to work.
Yet this year has been SO different. God has provided me with such a GREAT group of God-fearing women to work with. And I am so blessed. He knew my needs this year would be great. It has been an emotional roller coaster this year with many ups and many downs. Yet God knew that...and he provided. This year has truly been one of the greatest years of my 9 years of teaching. Thank you Lord for giving me friends to lean on. I really could go on and on about these great people. And for the most part my wanting to be at home is gone. And sure there are days when I would like to be with my babies, but God gives me peace in knowing they are in good hands and I am close by if needed.
We gathered at Sharon's home(in the white collared shirt) on Friday for food, fun, and karaoke. It was a blast!
Landry with Sharon's niece Camille Smith. They are the same age and I L-O-V-E this picture!
Later that day we went with Daddy to the farm production sale at Tech to buy a pig. Sorry, not for keeps....
