St. John's Day School

Next Tuesday, I will be starting my new teaching job at St. John's Day School.  I have many mixed emotions about this.  On one hand, I am extremely excited.  If I was ever going to teach again, I definitely wanted it to be at St. John's.  This is where we have always hoped that Anne would go to school.  Their emphasis on the arts along with it's historical downtown location make it inviting and enchanting.  It is the school where Cyndi has taught so many years...and through her, I've come to know and love so many people there as well.  When I got a phone call a few weeks ago asking if I would take on Cyndi's first grade class, I didn't know how to respond.  I was honored that they would even think of me, but at the same time the thought of walking into that school every day without her being there seems overwhelming and painful. 
I decided I would take the job though.
I knew that this would be a blessing to our family and those children.  Cyndi loved them so much, and I just hope that I can carry on her legacy of loving God and loving people.
 I know that once I get started the pain will subside and I'll just love it there.  I'm so excited to see what God has in store and how he will continue to use this tragedy for good.
Goodnight sweet readers.
xo, Dawn
