Today was the last day of school for me.
A parent (one who is generally rude and has raised an incredibly rude child): “So, this is your last day before maternity leave?”
Parent: “Well you look great! You’re hardly showing!”
Me: “We’re adopting….remember?”
Anyway…I cannot accurately describe the overwhelming joy felt in my soul when I walked into the kitchen when I got home. I am home. Hopefully for good!
It’s official, though…I’m a housewife 🙂
I wish I could say I’m a stay at home mom – but I’m not.
My students yesterday prayed for me. They encircled me and laid hands on my and prayed for me…and our birth mother…and our baby. By the time they were finished I looked like I had a waterfall pouring out of my eyes. They are amazing kids.
I love teaching. Well, I love the kids. I love MY kids. I hate a lot of what goes hand-in-hand with teaching (that only fellow teachers could ever understand) but I love teaching. And I’m good at it.
I will miss my kiddos.
But for now…I’m home.
Big sigh 🙂

What a jerk!
Yeah, you are on maternity leave…how exciting!
Yayy for being home. My last day at work before I go on 'tentative' FMLA will be Dec 31st. I think that will be a good way to ring New Year's in!
Your love for the kids and teaching comes through. 🙂
how beautiful, them praying for you!
without looking back at your posts, maybe you'll answering these q~
do you teach at a christian school?

happy housewife and SAHM-to-be day!!!
Welcome home! I know it's good to be home and to not have anything else on your plate other than the adoption. 🙂 Now, you can just take a nice, deep breath and get on with fluffing your nest.
Feels pretty awesome doesn't it! 😀
How wonderful that your kids prayed for you. Glad you're home. Hope that baby gets here soon.
Wow! That's an awesome feeling to be done isn't it! Enjoy!
