Life has taken a quick turn around here.
Although I debated about applying for the 4th grade position which I long-term subbed for last spring, I made the decision to finish up the year and prep for a hybrid-homeschool program for the two older boys this fall. Even though I knew teaching 4th grade was not in the plan for this fall, I still loved the opportunity I had to be back in the classroom.
Deciding not to interview for that 4th grade position was a huge decision for me. In times of big life decisions, I go through a loonnnggg process. It usually goes as follows: stress about every detail, don't sleep, eat a lot of chocolate, make lists, remake lists, and then I finally pray when I wear myself down.
After declining to interview, I asked God to work out two specifics if working this fall, not partially home-schooling our boys, was the next step.
The two requests were so out of reach considering the job market for teachers that I assumed homeschooling was our definite route.
Not too long ago, the principal from the school called me and offered me a 1st grade position.
The two specific things I prayed for were answered in an instant.
Now we are off on another unexpected adventure.
Oh, and may I mention that I have a soon to be 4th grader???
For those of you with littles in the house, freeze them now or it will be too late!
