Tomorrow is the start of a new school year. Having taught for three years, I know the excitement that all teachers are feeling right now. I always had so much fun decorating my room and meeting my new students. However, I haven't been getting my room ready, making copies, or even shopping for back to school clothes (not that I don't have plans to shop). Oh, how life has changed. I have a better job now! I am staying home with our son. I will certainly miss everything that a new school year brings, but I am so thankful that I get to stay home with Graham. I know it's not for everyone, but it's definitely that right thing for us. The Lord has blessed us so much and I thank Him everyday for allowing me to be at home. I am already making some big plans for us. I signed Graham up for a fall class. He will be participating in a music and play class at Munchkins' Melodies. The class is for babies and their mothers. So fun!!! I am so excited. Even though I feel a bit of sadness about not teaching 1st grade this year. I am already thinking of all the things I want to teach Graham. So I guess I'll never stop being a teacher. Most of all, I can't wait to teach my son about Jesus! I just want to be the kind of mother, wife, and teacher that the Lord wants me to be. I know that children learn so much from the examples they have around them. I pray I can always be a godly example for my son.

So Graham is sitting in his highchair now. When I put him in it he squeals with delight because he knows that he's about to get food!
Trying to sit up........

He holds his hands while taking a bottle! LOVE IT!!


  1. There is no job more important than being a mother and the fact that you get to have this very special time with our precious little boy is a tremendous blessing. Enjoy every second of it as it will fly by faster than you want it to. Your father-in-law and I marvel all the time at what a sweet little momma you are. Nothing like it in the world is there. When you get lonely for students come visit me at school and you will feel better! That boy is loving his food, he is all Cheney!
