I know I've been a bit of a blog slacker lately. I've been caught up in living life - the day to day stuff. I've written many posts - in my head in the car or in bed or the shower. But they never seem to make it to the actual computer.
There's not really anything new going on in my life, just the same day to day and that's okay. I'm reading "Mended" by Angie Smith right now and it's a thought changer. I'll have to post more about it later, but it certainly has made me step back at times and examine my life.
We seem to be settled in at our new church. We're finding our place. Most Sunday's there's still a bit of argument from WeeMan. He misses his old church and the toys. But once he's in class he settles down and has fun. I like that he is having class and not just playing at the new church.
I've been staying busy at work. I'm settled into second grade. At first I missed fourth grade and my big kids, but I think I've found my place. Our grade level team works well together and we fit. My kiddos are a mixed bag. Some of them are so needy it breaks my heart daily, but even on the worst day - I enjoy them. In fact my class this year has helped to change some of my perspective on WeeMan's future. I've often looked at him and looked at my class and thought I wanted to home school or send him to a Christian school, but I've come to realize this year - that the kids at my school need him and other kids like him to be examples and most importantly he needs them. He needs to see them and love them and understand that he can be a light. That's what I want for him - not to be raised in a sheltered place where he never has to see the darkness - I want him to see the darkness and to shine in it. (Does that sound weird? I'm not sure how to say what I mean, so I hope I am getting it across)
So that's what's going on here. Life as normal such as it is.
