Its official

Its official...I will be a stay at home Mom! I told my principal Friday that I would not be coming back after the Christmas holidays. I will really miss the faculty and my sweet little class this year but I know when February gets here I will be happy to be at home with my baby! This was kind of a big decision (more for me than Riley) because I am not tenured in Tusc. Co. so therefore I am having to resign rather than take a leave. I know without a doubt that I want to be at home but it was the fact of letting go of something I was so close to and would have if I had not transferred systems (my tenure). If the pregnancy would have been planned (which really how many times are they perfectly planned, anyways?!) I would have loved to finish out the year and get my tenure. But, after talking with my principal, she made me feel much better about it and come to find out she did the exact same thing.

Aw, that's wonderful news. I'm sure still a little scary and anxious at times, but well worth it when you're holding that babe!! :)

I'm so jealous! I hope you get your gender confirmation next week - I know it can drive you crazy if there's even a little doubt.

Hate we missed you tailgating, but ROLL TIDE!
