27 weeks
Pictures don't always turn out quite right when a certain 7 year old takes them for you. :)  I wanted a picture of my 27 week belly, and he wanted to include the pink tulips in the garden.  So the lighting is a bit off, but you get the idea!

This was my semi-professional "look" that I wore to a meeting with the principal at our neighborhood public school.  I wanted something more put together than yoga pants and a t-shirt!  The pants are a lovely dove-grey pinstripe that I found for $6 at Savers (you can't really see them in the photo - sorry).  The shirt is borrowed from a friend, and the pearls are a legacy from my grandmother.  It was nice to feel pretty!

Oh, and the school meeting went really, really well!  I met a lot of teachers, observed about six different classes, and was very impressed with the passion and pride that is clearly evident in the teachers and administrative leadership.  It looks like a good place for our kids next year.

Good luck with the transition! It takes time to mentally adjust (at least for me, it did). However, I am SO glad we made the switch as a family. Not that public school is frustation free, but now I have the emotional and physical energy to deal with those frustrations without an anxiety attack or an emotional meltdown (vs. when I homeschooled..because that isn't frustration free either!). Anyhow, I hope your kids transition well too.

About Emily
I'm a wife, a mother, a teacher of four growing, every-changing little boys. I'm a follower of Christ in the Anglican tradition. I love to read, sew, garden, and read some more. I'm a doula, a choral director, and a composer. I'm an introvert, I miss silence, and I sometimes dream of running off to a convent. My husband understands this better than most - he dreams of running off to a monastery. Introverted solitaries raising four rambunctious little boys - it's a wonderful life!
