Thank you, friends, for your sound advice and encouragement. I have made a decision and one that I am at complete peace about (thanks Kim for the great comment...I got it ;)
I am going to finish out my school year and do sessions only on the weekends. I am going to take this year and learn all that I can learn, save LOTS and LOTS of money and take a leave of absense next year.
In my school district, you can take a leave for a year and will be guaranteed a position at your school. If you take more time than that, you lose that option. I feel really good about this decision! Sooo, that's that :)
On to bigger and better things: we have been very busy and are thoroughly enjoying the beauty that Fall is bringing with her ! I love the crisp, cool weather, changing leaves, fall decor, Halloween and all that it brings.
It looks like Miss Paige might have to get her tonsils out in the next month. She continues to get recurring strep throat and her tonsils are swollen to the point that they are "kissing" each other. She has been a trooper, but is running temps often :(
On the cat front...we have six, beautiful baby kittens. They were born on my brother's wedding night. How's that for an eventful evening. Mama cat is just a kitten herself, but is loving and caring for them just like she should. Paige and I play with them a little too much and mama cat is moving them all over the house to keep us away from them. We got the message and now only pet them when the mom is away :) I have found homes for 3 of the 6, so I still have some work to go!
I'll post some new pics soon! Have a great week :)
