At last!!

Charles and I are very excited to announce that he has finally secured not only his teaching credential but a job to go with it!  Hooray!!
Sean Cheers

He was specially chosen for this new position by the school staff where he has been intermittently substitute teaching and more recently doing some private tutoring/teaching a student with anxiety issues such that he could not attend school proper. The new job will include teaching one ‘real’ class in the morning (Math) as well as teaching/tutoring 4 periods a day to help remedial students catch up in their studies.  It’s similar to a long term substitute job in terms of work load and pay but hey, it’s guaranteed work 5 days a week!  It all came together super fast- The idea was first mentioned to Charles last Friday and he starts work in two days!  =) 

We’re excited to have a bit more financial stability for this season.  He’s also lined up to teach summer school History again this year.  It’s looking like we’re set until Fall!  Charles has been and will continue looking for a full time teaching position for Fall of this year. He hopes to teach US History or at least something in the social studies arena!  But has his English CSET all ready and is considering working toward meeting the requirements to teach Math as well.

Sean and I will sure miss having Daddy home so much but we know we’ve been really lucky to have so much time with him here.  Sean is really close to Charles and they have such a fun time together.  It’s really cute to watch them play.  I’m lucky to have a super involved hubby who bounced Sean for hours to get him to sleep as a baby, now blinks nary an eyelash at the most potent poops, and who rushed in to save the day that time I got all covered in Seany throw-up.  Blech…  Lately, Charles has been cooking up a storm- serving up three pile meals, with veggies even!  I’m hoping that keeps going after work starts up….   A girl can dream, right?

Our little scholar

I’m very happy to have a kid that enjoys books so much, especially since Charles and I both love reading.  The other day Sean came up to me saying, “Green book! Green book! Read green book?”  I didn’t know what book he was referring to, but that was quickly resolved when he procured the ‘green book’ off of Daddy’s bookshelf.  He occasionally likes to pull down these books just to thumb through the pages and I can see why he was drawn to this one more than the others- at least it had pictures!  So, what book was it?    Continue reading

Water Play

Lately, the weather has been SO HOT.  If I go outside at 7am, I do not expect it to be 84 degrees!!  I want to get back inside ASAP.  Blech.  Sean, however, does not seem to mind the heat and still wants to play outside.  So, outside naked time plus water play is my go-to solution to keep both him and me from totally melting or getting burned to a crisp.
