I Survived!

This week has been exhausting, exciting, exhausting, rewarding, exhausting, sad, exhausting, happy, exhausting! I have NEVER used as much energy in one week as I did this past week with 20 4 year olds. Yes! I said 20. I know that is absurd to have 20 4 year olds in a class, but since it is state funded we must do as the state tells us.

I only cried one morning (Wed.) when I dropped Braden off and of course he has done really well all week with Grandmother & Palpaw though I am sure that they are exhausted!

I only freaked out on Thursday when halfway through typing my lesson plans they got deleted. I know that I should save them more often, but I wasn't thinking about it.

My goal for this next week is to leave school earlier. I hope it happens!

Thanks for all of your prayers. Trust me, I have needed them. Also, I apologize to everyone who I have not been able to talk to this week. The small amount of energy that I have left over has been going straight to Braden and Brad. But I promise to be a better friend in the coming weeks!

Oh yeah! I am taking a break from Grad school for the semester. Next semester my class will be online. I just couldn't imaging working all day, leaving my house at 6:10 and not getting home until after 9 at night. But the worse was not seeing my boy all day! No way can I do that!
Love you guys!

I was wondering when you'd find the energy to post again! I'm glad your week went well and even more glad that you had energy left to give to Brad and Braden...very impressive (I don't know if I could have handled that!)

Talk to you soon hopefully when things have calmed down.

love ya!

I've thought about you often, every time I check your blog, I've wondered if you were surviving.

I'm sorry I didn't ask you about your week this morning. I though about this afternoon. Know that I'm thinking about you! You'll do great!
