Vanessa goes to work
I decided to teach math for a program called Quest on Saturdays this fall. I teach about 20 gifted students to whom I taught science over the summer. I figured it wouldn't be too hard to teach once a week, and it would help keep me in the teaching circuit. Vanessa came with me to the staff development on Friday. I put her in my baby wrap (see Sept. 10 post for picture), and she didn't make a peep all day! I plan on pumping milk for her on Saturdays, but I wasn't ready to do that for my first day of teaching today. So James brought Vanessa by during my 20 minute break between classes for feeding. It worked out pretty well, all in all, and some of my students got to meet her. They were really excited about her! James has a bad cold at the moment, and he did a fantastic job of keeping Vanessa content while avoiding coughing on her! I hope he feels better soon.
