In all seriousness, it's been nuts around here.
As you know, I started a new job in a new county and school district this year. Still first grade, but everything else changed. So I settled into my routine there and somehow also settled into being a working mom.
Ok... as settled as possible in a month.
Then, Y quit dance because she felt she had no time to do her homework or play. Which was basically true.
Then we got new furniture for the downstairs of our house. It's like a completely new space.
Yay change! Right?
Steve's schedule got changed to 11am-8pm for the month of September. He gets home after bedtime and doesn't wake up until we are out of the house in the mornings. So I'm doing this daily parenting thing almost completely solo.
Then, on friday my principal told me that, due to low enrollment, I'm being moved to a new school with the opposite problem. Not sure where yet, not sure what grade you'll be teaching either. We'll let you know before you report to your new location in a week.
I spent this week gathering my student's work and data to put it in some sort of organized fashion for my students' new teachers. I also started prepping my 16 little 6 year-olds for the huge change or getting a new teacher after a month of school.
All while not knowing anything about my own situation except that I'm leaving. And I have one work day to pack up my room.
Oh yeah... and not sure when I'll be able to register my kids at the new school since they WILL be coming with me. Not sure how I'll juggle things if registration doesn't mesh with my new schedule.
And let's not forget that, to my kids, a new school was always code for "new home". So they have been experiencing one giant emotional trigger for a full week. Lots of defiance and acting out which is not normal for them. Tons of fun for me. Because again, I'm pretty much on my own.
It's been a stressful September to say the least.
Our family could definitely use some prayers to get us through this crazy transition.
