for those of you who thought i was just a stay at home mom who sits around watching soaps and eating bon-bons. ha.
you may not know, but…
i am a TEACHER. yep. full-time. it’s what i do. crazy, i know. since i went to college with the intent of being a piano teacher and youth leader. i guess my job title is a little bit different than i once thought it would be.
of course, i am a home-school teacher. BUT before you dismiss this entire post as if that doesn’t count, let me tell you that not only do i teach one grade, but i teach two!
now i know that is NOTHING compared to my sister who teaches 5 grades, or my bloggy friend who teaches at least a million grades, but none the less. i am a teacher.
i do real live teacher things.
we do science experiments
we have a schedule.
that must start with this for mommy…
after my Bible reading of course.
one of many perks is that i get to be with the little loves of my life all day long.
and i love everything about them.
i mean can you imagine a job where you get to look at these eyelashes every morning??
i have to make schedules, write assignments, plan projects, field trips and book reports.
i have to pretty much be right with them during every subject to explain and teach.
then i have to correct everything.
oh ya, and i have to plan snacks
can you guess whose snacks are whose?
then i have to make meals and keep the house clean and the laundry washed (my husband has been doing a lot of laundry for me lately!)
and that is just my day job! ha!
here is my book shelf (have i mentioned how much i love my curriculum?? it takes up waaay less space compared to the bazillion books i had last year)
THEN…i have to set aside an hour to do this elaborate blog complete with pictures and explanations!
ok. seriously. i am tired. i have to go to bed. gotta start another school day tomorrow.
i am so thankful.
so grateful that i live in a country where i have the privilege of training my kids to grow into the men of God that i pray they become.
i can teach them about creation, and the fallacy of evolution
i can teach them how to have a Biblical world view.
i will never take that for granted.
