exciting news....

hi friends!!!
WOW, it has been a really long time since i have been on my little blog... so sorry!
we have been busy at our house - and are entering a very exciting - NEW- season!
for the past 2 years i have been lucky, blessed and fortunate to be home with josie, and have had an awesome in home daycare: 
"Country Chick's Childcare!"
yeeee haaaawwww!!!
it has been such a fabulous way for me to be home with josie, 
meet new-incredible families, 
care for precious kiddies 
and basically work from home....
i have loved it!
now that josie is getting older (turning 3 in October - AH!) and i am feeling the itch to get out and work outside of the home (i have a teaching license - emphasis in pre-primary ages), i decided to apply for a job i saw posted in our local paper!!!
i got it!!!!!!
i will be a home visitor for Headstart, and am BEYOND excited to begin!!!
i literally found out, 
had to tell all of my families the next day 
(gave a 2 week notice - one of the most difficult things I have ever done!!!!)
and then wrap my head around the fact that my daughter would be going to daycare!
Lord help me!
Where do I start?
Being on this end of the daycare process is overwhelming!
we spent last weekend camping, and it was a great way for me to step back from it all...
embrace the NEW CHANGE 
and come back refreshed and ready to start visiting places for her to go each day...
(my hours are 8-4:30)
(my hours are rocking my world)
(i will never wear yoga pants more than 6 days in a row again)
wednesday night, we went and visited a daycare down the road about 30 seconds from our home and fell in love with it!!!! josie was completely relaxed, played, made herself at home and woke up the next morning asking to go back!!!!
she starts a week from today!
i will have to have myself ready, josie ready and be out the door by 7 AM every morning!!!
peter pan
a day at a time.
that's how i am looking at it!
i know she is going to SOAR with her wings wide open, ready for some independence from her mama...
but i know i will miss her!
i am so excited for this new journey!!!!
and can't wait for all of YOU to come along with us!
lots of love,
p.s. here's one of my fave pix  from the girls weekend i was on a couple weeks ago:
oooohhhhh how i love the north shore!
and this little girl melts my heart!

  10. Congrats mama!!! I am so happy for you :) I have been itching to get out of the house and back into the work place myself. I've been a SAHM for 8 years now. It's been amazing, but I feel like leaving the nest may be around the corner for me too. I'm just not sure if it's God's plan for me, or my plan for me. Until then I will take it to Him in prayer. As for you my dear......enjoy this season!!!!! I can't wait for updates :)
