You’ve noticed the lack of posts recently.
There’s been good reason for the silence. I’ve been a little overwhelmed in the past few months preparing to move back to California. The family I have been working with for the past two years left this morning to finalize the purchase of their new home in Santa Cruz, and I will be joining them in a few weeks time, after presenting a workshop for childcare providers in Rhode Island.
A lot of change is afoot for all of us. S.’s Mom and Dad will be starting new jobs at the University Of Santa Cruz, we will be welcoming a new baby to the family in January, as well as trying to settle into a new home. S. is excited about starting pre-school part time, and being a big sister.
As for me, I’m sad to be leaving home AGAIN , but not sad about missing winter ! I am committed to supporting this family through the challenges and joys the upcoming changes will bring, and grateful that my chosen work allows me such wonderful opportunities.
I plan to continue developing this web site and possibly do some consulting and start a parent/infant class in Santa Cruz. Time will tell how things progress. If I’ve learned anything about life, it’s that I can’t predict the twists and turns it will take ! This move is not what I planned on, or expected, but what a wonderful adventure I imagine it will be !
