How to find it, is the question I've been thinking about lately. The past year has brought a lot of changes in my life, from starting this blog to going back to work after being a full-time stay-at-home mom for seven years. I'm so grateful that I have been able to be home with my kids, but I'm also thankful that I've been able to start working more and to contribute financially to my family. I can do 90% of my job from home, which is a blessing. Now that summer is here and the kids are home, though, I'm trying to figure out how to work from home and be a mom too. I know that many of you are work-at-home moms too. If you have any tips, on making this situation work, I'm all ears.
The coming year is going to bring more change as all three of my girls will be switching from our neighborhood public school to a private school across town in the fall. While we have loved the public school, our school district is in a severe budget crisis. This means large class sizes with no aides and things keep getting cut.
I think the new school will be great for them, but change can be tough (especially for one of my children). I'm hoping the transition isn't too difficult for us. With the added tuition expense, I think I might try to pick up some more work.
Please excuse my popping in and out of the blog world this summer as I try to figure this all out. When I have something to share, I'll be here and I hope to continue to visit your blogs to see what you've been up to. I have so much admiration for you moms out there who can do it all and you make it look effortless!
In other news, we had a great weekend in Aspen. Here are a couple of my favorite pictures.
