Change Change Change

Ok so once again, I'm not the best blogger, its been how long since my last blog post? I promise to get better, life just gets SO busy with the coolest toddler on earth living under YOUR roof! Where did I get so lucky/blessed! Addisyn is going 90 to nothing, talking in full sentences, learning new things everyday, coming up with her own expressions and responses which keep her daddy and I in awe/giggling more than we know what to do with!
I recently departed my job as Director at Eldorado Montessori. Myself, my assistant and 10 of the teachers have left the owner. enough said. I refuse to dwell anymore of my time/emotion on what happened there. I just miss the children and parents everyday, but I am blessed to have such supportive parents who have kept in touch via email and play dates regularly!
So what am I doing now? Well the Montessori Method is such a wonderful method in teaching children, one in which I give much credit to with Addi's development. So I thought to myself, I know the works, I know the pretense behind teaching.... with a few books, info and tools, I could do this at home with a small amount of children and Addi! Soo, thats what I am doing!! Ballard Home Academy began August 1, 2011 and I couldn't be happier! Its such a great experience and I seem to be learning everyday right along with the children! I am teaching Monday-Wednesday and the best part.. Im home with my favorite girl and then 4 days a week its our time and family time! Phil is enjoying us being home and happy 7 days a week! Please keep my new direction in your prayers!
Now, lets talk about the change change change I WANT... COOOLLER TEMPS! SHEESH! We have been from 98-113 since mid july everyday.. its just killing me. I think Im melting every time i check the mail! As a friend put it.. 'this weather makes me feel like God has a magnifying glass pointed at my forehead'

Happy Blogging!

Hello out there!





Its been way to long since I have come to blog! Funny how time flies as parents and how busy we become! Addi is a growing little girl and I wish I had a pause button. She is a talking storm, potty training and learning so much at her Montessori School. Phil has been relocated to a new Super Target closer to the house, so we are very excited about his promotion! I too have recently been promoted to Director of the Eldorado Montessori School and I am thoroughly enjoying each day with the children and teachers. We have been snowed in for 4 days now and enjoying our pajama days, cooking and keeping the fireplace running! I hope this blog finds everyone doing well and keeping warm in this crazy winter storm!

Addisyn's First Birthday was Sunday, May 16 2010. Uncle Burns, Phil and I celebrated by taking her to lunch at Apetitos (she had some beans/rice but no margarita!) and then we took her to a local spot for her One Year Photos! Burns as usual did the most amazing job. I feel so lucky to have a brother and an uncle to Addi who will capture all her moments throughout life! Thank you Burns!










Long time no blog!

HELLLLLLOOOO!!
I have no excuse other than the last two months have been crazy busy for us! I recently got a new job, I am now the Assistant Director of the Eldorado Montessori School in Frisco, Tx. It is an amazing job and Addisyn will be joining me there in August to attend school! We are truly blessed as I think this will be a great experience for her! Phil was recently promoted within Target and has alot more storewide facility management responsibilities and hopes to move up into the District portion as soon as possible! And last but not least, in fact only the biggest part of this year so far.. Our little beans turned the big '1' ! I cannot believe my baby is not such a baby any more! I hope you enjoy some of the photos from the last two months and I promise to be more of a 'blogger' because I can only imagine all the changes and adventures in store for us in the rest of 2010!
