To Be Announced

yesterday we found out who our new teachers would be
we have been waiting for this day

we went into the gym to find our names and Janey's teacher said
to be announced
apparently there was a  change in staff...the night before
the teacher Janey was going to have decided to take a part time position to stay home with her  baby

i totally get wanting to stay home with your children
i have been that teacher

i am a bit of a control freak
not always proud of it and trying to change
but i can admit it
this is driving me crazy

the not knowing
the waiting

i worry about who will take the new position
i have been that teacher too

school is so important to me

i love being involved
i love every detail of it
i have been "living school" for my whole life now it seems

i am trying to stay positive
i am so proud of Janey for her attitude and her smiles
i love that she is focused on the friend that she really wanted being in her class
i need to take a lesson from my own daughter...again

i am hiding my fears and worry
i know the opposite of worry is faith
i am trying to have faith that it will all work out
for the best
and in a month this will seem small

i know in the scheme of things
real things
this is small

i am praying


  1. Oh Cindy...that really stinks! Sorry you guys have to wait to find out. Good for Janey for having a great attitude. At Brady's school, he got to go meet his new teacher on the last day of school and see his new classroom and who his classmates will be. That sure cuts down on our anxiety level of having to wait and find out over the summer.
    Thanks for the font advice! I have tried the different ones before...but I will try again and make sure I'm using a 12. Crazy that mine is different!
    Have a great day!

  2. just think of how exciting it will be to have a mystery teacher. at least she seems like she is in the go with the flow attitude. that should help

  3. I hope you find out soon! I know how hard that can be. We have to wait quite a while to find out also and I always wonder who they will get. I'm sure she will get a wonderful teacher that she will love and you both will be happy. :) Good luck and let us know when you find out who the teacher is and what you think of her/him. ((HUGS))

  4. I'm sure everythink will work out for the best, but I do understand your anxiety. Good for Janey being so positive and going with the flow. She'll be fine and I'm sure she'll have a GREAT teacher.

  5. Hi Cindy,
    We don't know my daughter's teacher yet at all and it has been driving me crazy! I like to know and plan too. I am very type A. LOL I hope it all works out for the best!
    Want to thank you also for the lovely comments you have left on my blog. They really mean a lot to me! So glad I found your blog and getting the chance to know you. Have a great weekend.


  6. Oh I know the excitement that comes with finding out who the teacher for the year will be. And to have to wait even longer...ugh. It would make me a little crazy. I'm having faith for you that this will be a wonderful school year for everyone.

  7. That's frustrating. But the excitement of having "the new teacher" is always fun. Hope it worked out. How does she like her so far?
