Update on life

Jared came home on the 5th of March (Tuesday). I was really hoping for a euphoric period where he was so happy to be home that he would be really good. No such luck. By Thursday he was back to being mean to the other kids. The only change I've noticed in him is that his outbursts are more manageable and not as destructive. He still wants thing his way all of the time and if that doesn't happen he get's upset. All the kids do is fight. Kaleigh and Anthony think that the louder they scream, the more Jared will get in trouble. Those of you who know Kaleigh, what she lacks in size, she has made up in sound. She has a scream that is ear piercing and she is stubborn and doesn't give up. I know this sounds like all I'm doing is complaining. I guess I am.

On a better note, I'm most likely going to be quitting my job at the end of the school year. My boss doesn't want Jared at the daycare and I don't know if I'll be able to get him into a summer program again this summer. I've already been to the school district and have started the process to work in the lunch program. I've filled out all the paper work and have done my back ground check. Now I have to take a physical abilities test and do some stuff on line and I will be put on the sub list. Once I'm on that list, I can start applying for jobs in the school. I'm hoping to be able to get on at a school around here for next year. Kaleigh will be in first grade and going all day. That way I'll be on the same schedule as my kids plus it would pay much better. I hope it all works out.

I hope it all works out. I know how discouraging it can be to deal with issues day in and day out. You're in my prayers.

I think of you all often and pray things will even out. A job at the school sounds like a good change.
