I'm Going

I'm excited,
and can't wait to begin.

I'll be a long-term sub for our school's reading teacher.
Tomorrow through the start of Christmas break.
She's having her first baby...very soon.

A two and a half block commute with Sofi & Izzy.
An amazing staff.
Awesome support.
Doing what I love.
Helping kids read.

Sometimes things happen when one least expects it.
I learned about it at the end of July.
I had goosebumps.
It felt right.
I completed a mountain of paperwork....
as fast as I could.

Today I had goosebumps again.
I received my badge, email address, and passwords.
Many things have changed since I left teaching to be a mom...
14 years ago.

It's been a wild and crazy ride.
With my babies all in school,
I'm ready to spread my wings again a bit.
This will be a good first step.

I think I'm ready for the morning.
Bag packed.
Clothes ready.
Lunch made.
New school supplies.
I feel like I'm six again,
and it feels really really good.
