Changin' Up

I had a little bit of a life change yesterday.

It was a good change, though. :)

Yesterday was my last day (for at least a little while) as a teacher.  I've mentioned it before on here that I'm going to be blessed enough to stay home with Emma Ramey.  It really is my dream job.  I'm so excited that it's finally here!

Yesterday was a little sad, though.  As far as teaching goes, I had the best job on the planet.  I worked with fabulous people that happened to be good friends, my kids were incredible (I worked at a magnet school, so we had kids from all over the city), I am convinced I had the absolute best principal on Earth, and we were able to do some really cool things with this kids.  It really was a fun three years.


My precious co-workers threw me a "boo hoo breakfast"...complete with blue tablecloth because they were "blue" I was leaving. How precious are they? :)

When I wasn't saying my goodbyes, I was cleaning out my room.  Y'all - how ON EARTH do you collect that much stuff in three years?  I threw away so much - it hurt a little - but was very needed.

This is what it looked like after I was done.  A little sad. :(



 

(Here's what it looked like last year, and here's what it looked like the year I started.)

The woman that's moving into my room is using the zebra print, which I'm a little thankful for - that was a tough project!  And I wouldn't want to have to paint over zebra print either...haha!

So I'm resigned from my position as of 3:15 yesterday.  I've always hated the word bittersweet, but it really is.  I'm starting the job I've always wanted, but I just finished the second best job ever...it's a little weird.  There are parts of me that will miss it, but I couldn't be happier about the next chapter of my life!


And I have a pretty cute co-worker with this new job too. :)
