Settling In

 
This is the year to "put down roots." I didn't set a bunch of small intentions because I was so focused on three huge ones:
  1. Welcome a healthy, happy baby into our lives
  2. Finish building our house
  3. Receive approval from the state to open Austin's first public Montessori school
I had to take a break from this space last week because I was getting sucked into the vortex of these intentions. All at once!
 
We officially moved into our house and also received notification that the charter application has made it to the final round (we interview with the state this Thursday). So we had the stress of moving on top of the stress of wrangling a toddler on top of the stress of meeting an infant's needs on top of many professional obligations (and I needed to buy a new suit, which is frankly one of the last things I want to be doing at two months post-partum).
 
The good news is that I can clearly see the other side. Of course the "other side" looks like working my butt off to make sure everything is in place to open the school in August 2014, but at least if the charter goes through I'll be doing it from the comfort of our calming new home (well, once we get everything unpacked) with frequent fun breaks courtesy of my two sweet boys.
 
I have one post scheduled for tomorrow, and I'll aim to be up and running around here by next week!
 
I hope all is well with you...

Goodluck with everything! I hope you guys get approved. It would be really lovely to have a public Montessori in Austin :)

If you ever have time for it, I'd love to hear your thoughts on packing for a move! We'll be moving in the near future with our 7 month old son...we moved two years ago and it was so hard, boxes everywhere for weeks. I can't imagine doing it now with a baby. There must be a systematic way to pack quickly and somewhat painlessly!
