HAPPY BIRTHDAY LORI!
So Monday I start back at school. Not to obtain my teaching license as originally planned, but rather to attend a year long class on becoming a legal secretary. Why the change? In a nutshell, Sethy sort of changed the path I was on... I was clinging to the idea that I would still be a teacher, but then I got pregnant and realized that I would have to wait until September 2007 to even begin the last two years of my schooling... and then I would have to take x amount of schooling thereafter to even KEEP my job. Not to mention the long hours doing group study etc. I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do... I knew I wanted a 9 to 5 job, something that was more business like, more money and something that would be more up to me if I wanted to bring my work home w/ me.
My sister was doing a program at a local school for legal assisting and the more I heard about it, the more I liked the sound of it. As an intern she made more than I would likely make as a teacher. So I decided to go for it. In the past few weeks we've been ironing out the details... I was blessed and a grant is paying for my schooling and nolan's childcare. Seth will be able to go there when he is 1 year old and walking. I will have about a month off this summer as well which I am very happy about.
Aaron is still on nights right now, so the plan is that I will take nolan w/ me to school and drop him off at the daycare around 7am. (school is from 8-2:30), and when Aaron leaves for work around 12:30 he'll take sethy over to my sister's house and I'll pick him up around 3. We were going to have Aaron keep nolan home two days a week so he can see him, but I think we'll wait a week or two on that because I want nolan to get into the rhythm and get used to going to 'school'. Aaron thinks it's a good idea to let him get integrated there first too.
When Aaron goes back on to day shift, I am hoping Lori will be able to take sethy all day, if not I have other options I will explore... it all depends on when that happens. Which does not look to be anytime soon.
So yeah... I'm excited. I'm worried too of course, this is a big change for us... but I am looking forward to it. I am excited for Nolan as well... I think he is getting BORED at home. I hope he likes it... I think he will, and if he doesn't well... he won't be the first kid to not like it.
Anyhoo, so that's what's going on. How about some pics...
