For This Child I Have Prayed.....1 Samuel 1:27

Awww.........last day of Mommy and Lanie time, back to work on Monday.  So bittersweet!  I have to leave one child, but get to go with another....not sure what to think about that.  Grateful and sad all rolled up into one.  It has been wonderful being at home with her, but I know life must move forward and part of that is work.  I'm feeling very thankful today though to have a job that I love and I'm very passionate about.  Also, Braxton is so excited for me to be coming to school with him that it almost makes me excited too.  So....to my students - I'm coming back!  Get ready, there is so much to learn!......to Braxton - Mama can't wait to see you in the hallways and steal a quick hug to help get me through the day.....and to Lanie - I will soooooo miss our naps and snuggles and may you always know that the best part of my school day is coming home to you.
