I have been in school for two weeks now and so far I am doing okay. I worry about it getting harder and me getting to the point where I can’t pass the tests anymore. I am especially worried about the math I’m going to have to take because I am pretty lousy at math, even basic stuff.
Yesterday I taught primary. Or rather, I sat in the class while my team teacher taught. I was a little disappointed in how impatient she was with the children in the class but I chalked it up to her having a hard week. It’s a big class with several age groups in it so it isn’t going to be the easiest assignment in the world but I think it will be okay.
There are things I have to do for work, now that I am assistant manager, that take a lot of my time and concentration too. One of the things that is difficult for me to do for work is to put together the activity calendar. I worked on it last night but still didn’t get it done. I have to come up with outings we can do with the clients at work. December is a difficult month because special needs Institute stops on the 10th and doesn’t start back up until January so I have to come up with even more activities to fill the Institute slots with.
I am grateful for good friends, that give me support during the hard time, especially my best friend, Kim who has been very supportive of me going back to school. I think he believes in me even when I don’t believe in myself.
I feel like life is one big balancing act right now and that I need to get really good at juggling my time. But I know I can do it, if I include the Lord in my endeavors.
