Well, here it is, my first try at blogging! I started reading my cousin Cheryl's blog, Chery's Apple Basket, last year & since that first inspiration & reading many other wonderful blogs I decided to give it a try.
I retired from teaching in June after 30 years of many rewarding experiences. Actually, this is my 2nd time to retire. After my son was born in 1981 I was a stay at home mom until he started 1st grade. I have taught elementary music, 3rd, 4th, 5th, & 6th grade. I loved teaching & the challenges it brought my way. For me teaching was my calling. However, it was time for me to say goodbye to that stage of my life and walk through the next door to discover what the next stage would be. My DH & I found out in June that we were going to be grandparents in March. Exciting news! Everyone says this is why you retired so you could enjoy being a grandma. I have to agree, God knew the plan & helped me take a leap of faith. I am having the time of my life doing all the things I love to do.
