Woo Hoo Wednesday!

Hi girls! Today is the very first Woo Hoo Wednesday hosted by Marla at Always Nesting.
I haven't been the best blogger lately. I'm a woman on a mission with a very long to do list. You know, my youngest son graduates from high school in three weeks. So because of the company that will come, I have a list of things to do around my house a mile long. This week I've been planting and painting. My bones hurt from all of the work!!

The other thing I've been very busy with is my career. I'm going back to work in the fall and couldn't be more excited! So can we say Woo Hoo!! I teach students with learning differences. In my new position, my day will be 1/2 time in 4th grade and 1/2 time in 5th grade. The people I'm going to work with seem amazing. I can't wait!!

This Woo Hoo Wednesday isn't about pretty pictures for me.
It's about celebrating the things that are happening in life right now.

Sounds like you are one busy lady! I remember when my son graduated from high school & college how frantic I was to get everything ready to all the company.

I admire you for returning to teaching. Sounds like a great opportunity!

Smiles,

Wow Stacey! I am so excited to hear about all the great things that are going on in your life right now! Wonderful news about your career! I just know you will be a blessing to the kids you will be helping!

Did you get your dining room finished? I hope I didn't miss it while I was on my break. It is always such a mixed bag when planning for house guests...excitement at their arrival and dread about all of the work;)! My older two graduated several years ago and it can be a very hectic time.

Enjoy!

WooHooHoo!!! Sounds exciting Stacey. So happy for you. I have a Fourth Grader in the house and I just love the age. She has ADHD so it's always an adventure with her, but I love her to death! And wow, your kids graduate early over there in OK. We don't get out until the end of June!
Have a great evening!

Congratulations on your son graduating! I know he's letting out some woo hoo's about now. And congrats on your new job. I'm a teacher who is staying home right now and wonder about going back. Seems a lot of teachers I know are without work right now in this time of cutbacks. Glad you were able to find such a great job!

Granny Annie said...

You deserve an extra Woo Hoo for choosing to teach students with learning differences. Not an easy job but definitely rewarding for the right person.

Hi Stacy Kudoo and Woo Hoo to you for taking on teaching. That is such an important job and such wonderful children to spend your day with. I taught some special needs while on missionary to Belize. Blessings

Cynthia @An Accomplished Woman said...

You are such an inspiration. Going back to teaching... WOO HOOO How exciting!!! Great job.

Just a little something from Judy said...

Since I have been reading your blog for quite a long time, I can so easily picture you as a teacher to those with learning differences. I have a very special place in my heart for teachers like you. My youngest daughter's learning style was different than many of her classmates. For a mother that can present many struggles. I thank God for the kind, skilled, and patient teachers that worked with her, and taught her in the way she could learn. You have my greatest respect in accepting that job. I know you will be the perfect candidate for that crucial position .

I also know how it feels to have your youngest child graduate. I will be thinking about you during this huge transistion.

Wowie, Stacey... Although things might seem hectic for you right now- you're on your way to something that will be giving you a lot of pleasure and satisfaction. Congrats on taking on a job that will benefit so many who need special help and care. Enjoy your son's upcoming graduation festivities!
