Lately, things just haven’t been going as planned.
2014 has been a rough year for our family and yet, in a twisted way, it makes 2015 seem so much brighter and hopeful. There have been lots of unexpected, but exciting changes in the Ramos household. Last month, I was asked by the GLAS board to teach part-time in the mornings. After prayer and weighing out the pros and cons, I accepted the position. With that decision, came along another dream come true for Titus. (His first dream come true was when he got to see the dentist a couple years back.) He would finally be able to go to school with his big brothers! We surprised him with the news on his birthday and we bought him a new backpack and school supplies.
Today was Ty’s first day of school. He is in Pre-K and his teacher is Mrs. Robinson. He acts shy, but he loves her and is so proud to be in her class!
In the mornings, I teach Algebra I & II and I help with a few other subjects also. It was a great first day and I’m looking forward to getting to know my students better. They are such great kids! On our way home, Ty was so tuckered out he couldn’t make it more than 10 minutes in the car…
It was a memorable day for both of us! With this part time teaching position and with GYC, I can now say that I am officially working full time, and I’m taking a reading diagnostic course on the side. It’s a busy life! But I cherish the fact that I’m working in the same building as my boys and I still have the joy of being Imanuel’s teacher for a couple subjects too. 🙂
So, even though this post comes several years sooner than expected, we trust it is what we’re supposed to be doing. It is our prayer that God leads us in our every step and I’ve found freedom in trusting Him.
Ty Ty, it gave me such joy and pleasure to watch you walk into school, meet your teacher, put your coat and backpack into your very own little locker, and step into your first classroom. May your journey of learning continue to flourish for Jesus’ sake. You’re growing up too fast! It is our prayer that God molds you into His likeness and that you grow to love and serve Him always. We love you so much more than you know! Happy First Day of School, Baby!
