returning to work

After four years of being a stay at home mom, I will be returning to work part time as a special education teacher.  I will be working with challenging teenagers that have had trouble in the regular school system.  I am up for the challenge.

We will be rearranging our home life to accommodate this change.  Our twins will be starting kindergarten, our second oldest will be in second grade and our eldest will more than likely stay nearby and complete one more year at the junior college where she was on the dean's list this past year.  She was accepted into an honors institute for this coming year but I think again, we are deciding that she can do one more year here and stay on the positive side financially.

My brother has had some health issues that stemmed from a freak work accident almost eight years ago, now!  He was working when a swarm of bees attacked him.  He ran to his truck to take cover, but when he thought the coast was clear and emerged again, the swarm came back and attacked him again!  Since then,  he has been treated in so many different ways for debilitating headaches and now many other health issues that have followed since then.  Recently, he was able to adopt a rescued pit bull and in a way to make Cesar Milan proud, he has been able to have her classified as his therapy dog now!  She is amazing!

I am thinking it would be great to have a therapy dog for our sweetie too.  I am beginning to look into some options.  Our sweetie is still emerging with her speech as she has been delayed and slow to communicate with us her physical needs.  She also has some tactile issues and I am thinking that over all she would benefit from a therapy dog.  Especially as I return to work. 

so as one chapter closes, another begins.
