On the eve of the first day of school, our son finally decided to get excited about starting kindergarten.
Transitions have always been tough for our little man. In the past I struggled to handle it all with grace. But this time around it was different.
Over the summer, we decided that Shayne would not resume his position as the AP Physics Teacher and Head Golf Coach for Red Oak ISD. Instead, I'm taking on the role of full-time-working-mom while Shayne becomes the full-time-stay-at-home-dad.
As a former latch-key child, I know it sucks to not have parents around. On a missional note, we also felt that our culture needs more dads that are engaged in our schools. And so, I'll be pounding away at my keyboard in my home office while Shayne volunteers at the kid's schools.
We are only just beginning this new season but our role reversal has changed everything for the better!
