Day 10 of “Thirty posts in thirty days”...

Day 10 - a photo taken over 10 years ago of you and how it makes you feel seeing it now.

This photo was taken in August of 2000. It is my (former) classroom. I had just graduated, I was 24 years old. I was ecstatic to have landed my dream job. I was young, enthusiastic and full of energy! I could not wait to get started! I loved seeing my name on the door knowing that soon enough a bunch of little ones would come filing through and that I would be responsible for their learning and appreciation of another language. I was proud.

I love kids. I knew that I wanted to be a teacher from a young age. I also knew that I wanted more than anything to be a mommy and knew that once my time came I would quit whatever I was doing to stay home with them, if at all possible.

I taught for 5 years. I worked really hard. I had many ups. I had many downs. Teaching is SO rewarding yet so draining.. oh, but I got off work at 3:30 and I had Christmas, Spring Break and summers off so it wasn’t too bad, right! (Insert sarcasm!!)

Then I had my baby and quit. Sadly I have not really missed it. It was once my passion and now it is gone? Hmm... I love being fortunate enough to stay at home and raise my children I just worry about what I will do next? Once my kiddos are all gone to school, then what for me?

Any suggestions?! Haha!
