This new school year has brought a huge change for me. After 11 years in a classroom, I have moved into administration. I am now the Dean of Intervention at Quest Charter Academy. National Heritage Academies (the company I work for) uses a Dean model instead of Principal/Assistant Principal. A dean is in essence an assistant principal.
I am loving my new job and am learning so many new things each day. I am blessed that I have an amazingly supportive group of  people at work and at home. I have come to realize that eventhough I want to be perfect in everything I do, I won't be. This is a bit of a learning year for me, and boy am I learning things!

John and Megan are doing well!
A few months ago we had their 4 year check-up.
Megan weighs in at 28 lbs and John is 34 lbs.
They are busy little people as well. John is playing soccer, hockey, and doing gymnastics. Megan is dancing and doing gymnastics. Both kids are loving their activities and sleep pretty good on the nights that they have class.

Dance Class!

The kids are in the pre-kindergarten class at Real Life Nursery School where they have been attending school since they were 2 1/2. They are working on math and reading skills to prepare them for kindergarten. Tim and I are talking about where we want to enroll them in the fall. I can't believe that we are already talking about kindergarten. Weren't they just born?

For the first time in a while, I can say that I am happy in my work life as well as my personal life. Things seem to be falling into place. I have worked hard to build a life for John, Megan, and myself  that is filled with happiness, love, a commitment to each other, and an ability to live comfortably. Some days are better than others (4 year olds sure do whine a lot), but I wouldn't change one minute with them.
