Sorry for the lack of updates here. I have been crazy busy with the first week of school. My amazing husband helped me paint my classroom last weekend even though he was sick, so it looks 100% better than it did. I have had 2 IEP meetings so far and have a few more in the coming months, new computer systems to learn, working on schedules to get my CDC students mainstreamed and somehow teach amid the chaos! It has been an interesting week, but a great one too. I am settling in and getting organized. It was funny- the other day one of the assistant principal's came up and asked how I was. I told her fine and she said I have been hearing so many things about you.l Everyone is so impressed. I kind of stared blankly for a min, then smiled and said well I am glad others think I have it together. (Fake it till you make it, baby!!!!)
Ian has been battling a fever virus all week and had to miss pre-school. He was pretty upset, but then happy that he got to spend it with Grandma and Papa Anderson. Matt and I got lucky that Mom had this week off before going back to work so she could help us out. He seems to be doing real well now and will meet us at the house after I get off work tomorrow. I hope it has finally gone. I knew the kids would catch something- it's hard not to in a daycare, but just didn't expect it so soon. The kids really love school. Riley doesn't even cry when I drop her off anymore. She hugs and kisses me and runs off to play. It is too sweet and WAY to much like a big girl. Caleb is now bored at home. He thrives so much at school. He can't wait to get back when the weekend is here.
I have been "stalking" everyone's blogs, but haven't left comments just for times sake, but I hope to get better soon. I still read them everyday. I have the list of pictures from our Fl trip to get uploaded tomorrow. It is 9:30 and I am heading for bed. It's past my bedtime!! :) Hey when you have to get up by 4:30am , 9pm is late!!

I am so glad to heart things are going well!! I'm sorry little man got sick but what blessings Grandma's and Grandpa's are right?? Sounds like you've hit the ground running. I'm so happy for you. Glad to hear the kids are adjusting well to pre-school. I miss seeing you on here though. I just got started! :o) Hugs and Kisses, get a good nights rest. Tomorrow's Friday and it will be a good day. Friday's are always good days!! Love ya girl!

Just thought I would let you know how excited I am that you are teaching again, and doing such an incredible job of balancing everything. I am praying for you (your little ones, and Matt) in the midst of all the craziness and transitions. Molly
