the verdict

I don't have the emotional energy to re-hash all that has gone through my heart in the last 3 days. But i will say this-Ben has been great. He has prayed for me, encouraged me, and ultimaltely asked for God's guidance. As we read together last night he reminded me of the verse in 1 Thes 

4:3 "For this is the will of God-your sanctification"

When asking what God desires it is that simple and that complex...so i will no doubt be tried through and through with this and most likely so will he. We concluded that this will be a good time of bonding and time for him to invest in our boys. Time they need in their lives. He will be working the same hours just at different times. From 7-10am and 1-5 or 6pm. Still 7-8 hours. Plus many times after the boys are in bed at night while i am doing dishes he will piddle a little til i am done, so he is okay with work stuff.
I went today and met all the teachers. I knew all but 2 of them from different stuff like curriculum adoption teams etc.. They all (but 1) seemed thrilled that i would be working with their students. It took me 1 minute driving...ha! I will most likely be walking from now on..I start on Wednesday and will be there 10am til 1pm. I will be home to put both boys down for naps (if Brennan can hang on that long). I have set up a scheldule of activities for Ben to do with the boys if needed (like library, art, park,  etc..)
And THANK YOU dear friends for all your advice and prayers!
