Our summer is coming to an end this Thursday. I officially head back to school and Ocoee will be at her new daycare, Tundra Tykes. I feel very lucky for several reasons...first I have had all summer to be with Ocoee. We have had so many fun adventures and activities. She has grown and changed and I have been in the front row watching it all. I have also been fortunate enough to have daycare over the summer. Yea the pricetag is no fun but there have been several pros: Ocoee has had time to adjust to her new care providers and environment in a laid back manner before schools starts and I have been able to enjoy mommy time for myself.
Also for the first time in awhile I am truly excited to begin the school year. Taking last year to work a admin job outside the classroom was great because it made me realize how much I miss the classroom! This year I will be teaching part time Social Studies at a great school. This will allow me to do what I love and balance being home with Ocoee better. That is my mantra for the year....Balance.
Here is an adorable photo shoot with Ocoee using our kitchen table chairs that are so fabulous.
