Stacey, lately...

Well, we have big news at our house. I, (Stacey) have taken a job. It is full-time at the school by our house, Mann Elementary and I am working as a Paraeducator in the Preschool classroom. Our preschool is very special. You must qualify to attend. Children with developmental delays, multiple handicaps, and foster children are tested and if they qualify for services, they are placed in our classroom. We have an AM and a PM class. My son, Taesun has been in the preschool over at Erpenbeck for 1 1/2 years already and will continue to attend this year. He has wonderful teachers and paraeducators. We are quite pleased with Tae's progress with his speech delay. I am super excited to work with these children. They are truly special and deserve the best quality care. I am so blessed to be able to work with these students. I am learning so much. Above all, I can see the hand of God and His love in all of these children.

My family is adjusting well to this change. Tae is going to another preschool after his time at Erpenbeck and he is loving it!! After only three days at the new school, he learned how to write a lower and uppercase A and B. I was overjoyed!! I know that this is a great opportunity for Tae to play "catch-up" with his delay in speech. Hopefully he will be able to attend Kindergarten without an IEP!!!

Basically, my day consists of this schedule now:

6:45am- wake up/get ready
8:00am- load up car with kids
8:10am- drop off kids at school
8:30am- report to work
3:40pm- leave work
3:50pm- pick up Tae
4:00pm- meet kids at home
4-5pm- make dinner
5:00pm- eat dinner
6:00pm-soccer some nights/church other nights
8:00pm- kids in bed
9:00pm- mom in bed

It sure does make for a crazy day, but I really enjoy being busy! Anyway- that is what is going on in the life of Stacey, lately.
