LPS (the district I taught in last year) started work yesterday.
Wanna know something?
I'm so glad I'm not at work.
It's funny... I thought I'd feel a small amount of regret. That I'd wonder if I was making the right move. That'd I mourn the loss of my 'working mom' status. And I don't. Not even an ounce of wonder.
Don't get me wrong. I liked teaching music. I loved the kids & will definitely miss my work friends. But, as I read all the teacher blogs about people heading back, setting up classrooms, coming up with new ideas, I honestly feel grateful to be where I am.
I am content to be home full-time with Addie. And not just content in the 'i can live with this' sense... excited!
To have more time to energetically pursue other interests - blogging, photography, reading, learning.
To have more time to spend with family - I'm in Florida on vacation right now.
To be moving across the country to Cambridge.
Do I think I'll ever teach public school music again? I don't know.
Do I think I'll ever teach in an informal setting? Daily. (Parent = teacher, for better or worse.)
Do I think I'll ever teach in a formal setting again? I sure hope so!
But for now, I'm content with where God has me.
