And what is one of the first things I did in preparation for my new job? I went to Petsmart and bought a fish.

“Why would Steph buy a fish?” you ask. Because I’m now teaching preschool. It gets better. I’m teaching right at Ingrid and Ilsa’s school! It’s a half-day position teaching two separate classes: 2-day, and 3-day.

Pinterest,, and Google are now my most-visited websites. I find myself humming Raffi’s The More We Get Together. My family knows to save every single plastic water bottle so I can make sensory bottles. Ilsa has been scouring Pinterest for preschool ideas, and sending pins my way. Chad says I have a spring in my step and a lightness of heart he hasn’t seen in years. Ingrid is thankful that I am on site, so she can talk to me if she needs me.

I’m thrilled to have this opportunity. I get to see my girls off at school, walk down the hallway to my room, sometimes eat lunch with them, and then be there to pick them up. I don’t know that I could have a job that is much better than this!

And oh yeah… it’s good to be blogging again. I’ll update again soon.
