We started off our family day of fun with breakfast at Flying Biscuit. what, did you expect someplace else? :) We then headed to the Kinsey Family Farm in Gainesville to take Teagan to her first pumpkin patch, followed by a trip to the outlets, and finished it up with a trip to Pinkberry for some fro-yo.

first day back to work
The morning of my first day back I'd say was as I expected...lots of tears. I started crying the second the alarm clock went off that morning. for real. I seriously do love my job and my tears weren't because I had to work but because I had to leave Teagan and hated the thought of missing any sweet moment with her. The rest of the day ended up being a little better than I expected. I am fortunate to work with so many wonderful people who were very thoughtful and caring when I got there. I was greeted with sweet goodies, tight hugs, and excited smiles from my students...and even a sweet friend who shared some tears. We're also fortunate to have found someone who is super excited about being able to take care of Teagan. She is the mom of one of my students from last year and lives only 3 minutes from the school. Her excitement about Teagan makes leaving her a little easier (still not easy...just easier), knowing that she will still be loved and spoiled. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have ever made it to work that day if I would have had to drop her off at a daycare. I even got a little visitor on Thursday. :)
Hoping I'll be able to make it through the 5 day workweek coming up.
