For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotton son, that whosoever shall believeth in him, should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

New Beginnings

I have not blogged in a while.  I have been busy or just wanting to spend some quality time with my kiddos although I don't have them right now.  My sister-in-law came and got them yesterday.  She wanted to spend some time with them before school starts.  My girls absolutely love their aunt Tina.  They would move in with her if I would let them.  She is just as much of a kid as they are.  She gets in the floor and plays barbies with them and just focuses all of her time on them while they are there.  

Tomorrow will be the first day of school and I am full of all different kinds of emotions:  Nervous, excited, sad, etc.!!  Kenleigh will start to preschool.  She is 3 and has never been in a day-care or preschool.  She has always either been with me, my mom or my mother-in-law.  So I am nervous about her starting to school although I know she will do fine.  She is very excited.  She has already been to the preschool and visited for a few hours and absolutely loved it and wanted to go back.  Kaitlyn will be a big 2nd grader.  I cannot believe she is already in the 2nd grade.  It just doesn't seem possible.  I will be starting a new job at the same school where my children will be which is great!!  I am so excited but I am nervous.  I have been praying for this for a long time now.  I worked at a medical center for 7.5 years as a medical transcriptionist and then lost my job there and came home to be a in-home medical transcriptionist, which everyone thinks is great right?  Not exactly.  I lost all my benefits, retirement etc.  So I have been trying to get a job at the school for the last couple of years now.  I even took some courses last semester in order to get my CDA (Child Development Associate) that way I would have a better chance of getting hired in the preschool or in elementary if something became available.  I believe good things come to those who wait.  I have been waiting for a long time, but I am still a little nervous but so looking forward to tomorrow.   I am going to be a teacher's aide in the elementary school.  
I have the girls' backpacks and first day of school clothes laid out as well as mine.  We are going to have a back to school party as we always do but this year will be extra special since Kenleigh and mommy will both be going to school.  I will post pictures from that later.  I hope everyone has a great first day of school and please say a prayer for me and my kiddos.  God is good...................All the time!!

  10. Thanks for the follow. I wonder if your blog is being spammed by the Eastern hyrogliphics. If so, you may want to delete them and start approving comments. Mine was spammed and I had to delete it and start all over.
