New Tricks

My new students

Bedtime stories. Right now we are working our way through a dinosaur fact book

Brighton finally found his toes, and loves them!

I went back to teaching last week. I have just an adorable class this year, they all love learning and are so smart! I am lucky for this because there are 32 of them, but are easy to manage. It is so hard leaving my little one every morning, I feel like I am missing out on so much. Luckily in four weeks I will be able to teach part time for the rest of the year. My partner that I am teaching with is on maternity leave at the moment but I eagerly wait for her to join me in the classroom. How blessed I am to have a principal that allows this. I will then be at school only in the afternoons and get to have so much more time with Brighton. I am also extremely lucky to have a husband that takes care of baby all day. They just play and play! Brighton is learning so many new things. His latest is playing with his toes, he just loves it. He has gotten so good and rolling in all directions and ways. He is doing very well with sitting up and can do it for many seconds. He is starting to try and crawl, already!! He can lift his whole body up and get his knees underneath him, and finally he is eating so much better and sleeping so much better!!!!! He still has constant smiles, laughs and conversations. I just love this kid more and more each day!
