It has been a little stressful around the house for this mommy but I am starting to feel a little better about life. Stella has been really struggling at school and to be honest I have been struggling with taking her to school. I just feel like she never has a "good" day. When I pick her up each day it is just the same thing over and over that she has a lot of attitude and is in time out a lot. I get attitude from her but it is mostly when she is having to do something that she does not want to do, we talk through it and work it out.

On Monday I had a meeting with her teachers but it just was not very informative and did not make me leave feeling like we had any better of a plan in place. After a lot of thought and prayer and talking with Jason we decided that it was time to make some changes. We have loved the program that Stella and Rhett have been in over the past three year and it was really hard for us but we decided that at this time things were just not working for us and that it was time for us to take the kids out and find a new location that might be able to better handle Stella and her attitude.
It makes me sad that we will not be going there anymore, I think of all the wonderful teachers that she has had and that Rhett will miss out on but I have to say once we made the decision it was like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. I knew that in my heart that we had made the right decision for us and our family. Stella is a very bright, happy and loving child, yes, she has a very strong will but it just needs to be guided in the correct direction with love and kindness.
We are looking for a new program for the kids. I am not stressed about the kids being home with me all the time and not getting a break, them going to school is more for them than for me. Yes, I love the break and to be able to get some things done with out them under foot but I love how much they learn from others and how they learn to act with other children.

These photos are from this morning, about a 30 second span of time, you can see all the different thoughts going on with Stella. Her face is a book that I love to ready.
