Where to begin? These photos were taken today, and my emotions have gone up and down today. You see this alley holds some memories for me. As a girl my cousin Kathleen, her mom (my aunt Sharon, who passed away),my mom, my granddaddy (who passed away) and my siblings and I used to walk this alley to get to the start of the town I now reside in. I had the privilege of telling about and showing Nevaeh this alley as well. It is behind some local shops before walking towards downtown in our area. When I was a girl I remember getting milkshakes at McDonalds after our alley walk, or ice cream at the local ice cream parlor (I guess as a way of rewarding our walk, to aid in more time spent together with a treat). I hope to do this with my kids as they get alittle older and tolerable of longer walks.
My emotions and busyness have also gone towards my renewal of teaching licensure. I am almost done except turning in documents and getting transcripts sent, plus fees but I am nervous and unsure. I haven’t taught in two years. I know that I may not teach again full time for several more years but is it what I truly want? I am scared of the past mistakes in teaching catching back up to me? Has parenting full time helped in my areas of weakness in the classroom? These are constant questions. I finally had to go to God tonight and relinquish these fears and thoughts and trust that He knows best.
On to life other than teaching licensure renewal. The babes have been dealing with allergies, runny noses, ear aches and bleh! This coming Saturday is also Xander’s birthday celebration party as he will turn 2 on the 30th. Then the hubby wants a cookout with his friends from work, so this coming weekend will be busy, memorable but fun.
Below is how I have styled this dress in a past post:
