Part time - best of both worlds

Our family

I have been really enjoying being part time this year. I was afraid I would feel like I was missing out on things at work - but I actually am glad I am missing all the meetings :) It has been so nice to get to spend more time at home in the mornings, instead of rushing them off somewhere.

There are so many things that I love about this set-up.
1. I get to sleep in if I want to :)
2. Less meetings at work!
3. I can actually go to the store in the morning.
4. Sometimes I clean in the morning.
5. Less stress in my teaching position
6. Less stress in my life
7. Keep my teaching license current
8. Pay down my school loans
9. Keep my job (in the just- in case I need to go back to work fulltime)

Thinking about my girls, here are some recent pictures that my friend Shawna took about a week ago:
