It has come to my attention that not everyone knows what is going on with the Fannin family in the near future.

-I have resigned from my job. Towards the beginning of the year, I felt a lot of pressure from the administrator that observes me that I have too much stress in my life and I should maybe make a change. A combination of this and my normal frustration with my students and the overwhelming urge to be with my children before they go off to school led us to think about other options. Going the rate we were going, it was going to be another 3.5 years before Bobby was done with the MDiv. Bobby and I prayed about it and he changed to Masters of Arts in Christian Leadership. After this semester, he will have 4 classes left that he can take all online. I had not planned to resign this early, but the high school choir program on my side of the district was being cut. Now that I have resigned, the HS lady is going to come to the MS in the morning and the high school in the afternoon. (the music theory classes have been cut)

-We are moving in with my parents and I am taking care of my kids and my sister's kids. Bobby is transferring to UPS in Columbus and will be doing an unpaid internship with a church for part of his classes. This is why we are moving in with my parents. :~)

- I am going to take 2 years off, then start my masters in something. I haven't decided what yet. Then, when Sarah's in at least kindergarten, I will go back to work. Either in a school or church music.

We are so excited for the future!!!

(By the way, I know that I am a good teacher. I just need a break from teaching and this setting right now!!)

So are you finishing the year or are you already done? I got confused...
