Monday back to work? Not me

  On this day all of my friends who are teachers are headed back to school.  They are setting up their classrooms and meeting about the year ahead of them.  But not me, I am lucky enough to be able to stay home with my boys!  Today it is setting in that I am staying home with my children and in my  mind today starts my first day of being a stay at home mom.  Up till this point I just on summer vacation like I should have been.  As I drove past a school today I had to thank God that I am given the chance to stay home with my boys and this is what is best for my family.  I will have to say that I find it a little scary, I think I am so custom to providing for my family buy working outside the home that providing for my family within the home is kind of scary, or just new.  I know this is what is best for our family and it is not what is best for all families. I can't wait to see how our family grows throughout this year.  I am excited about watching my boys grow and being a very large part of it.  I have already started planning the different things we are going to do and how I am going to pay for them. 
   So today on my first day as a stay at home mom I took O to school, went to stroller strides, had lunch with my mom, picked O up and went to the rental property to get the carpets cleaned.  My day has been filled and I have hardly been about to stop and think. 

I am so glad to be a stay at home mom!
