I'm a working mom!

I just started a new job today and Jadeyn also started her new school! I'm so glad our church has a school/mothers day out program! I'll be a teacher for a 2 year olds class and Jadeyn gets to be in the infants class. School really doesn't start until September but this week, we have teacher work days, so today and Thursday, I'll be learning the ropes. I think it's going to be a great schedule. It's just like Edmond schools so we'll still be off for all the breaks and summer. I'll work about 12-15 hours a week. Tuesdays and Thursdays from about 9-3 and on Wednesdays from 9-12 during women's bible studies. Jadeyn will get a break from being around me all day, make some new friends and gain a little independence, while I also get a break, learn what to expect in a couple years, and also try to make some new mommy friends. I'm excited for this semester!!

bike riding adventures

Jadeyn's a pro at riding a bike now. We ventured out the other day with our baby b'journ and baby girl strapped to Jimmy's chest. We were a little scared and decided to just stay in the neighborhood the first time. But...after just a couple minutes, Jimmy led us across boulevard to the gas station to air up our bikes. As nervous as we both may have been, Jadeyn really seemed to love it. But soon got sleepy as you can see from the pics below. And no, her neck did not stay crooked on the ride. Jimmy was just taking the picture, and without his arm support, her head fell over since she was exhausted.

And then again tonight after church, we went for another 20 or so minute ride before bed. This time we crossed broadway and went to academy to look for a bike car seat. Some of those things are expensive. So for now, we'll stick with the b'journ.
