Muhja's New Adventure

This pretty little house is the Cabot Montessori School.  This week I began a new adventure with the nine three year olds that call this school their home for 6 hours a day.
I will be their teacher.  The Montessori Method, if you are not familiar, can be summarized briefly as: freedom within limits.  For more, read here.  The kids are two or three years old and amaze me with their independence and confidence.  We have lessons, we play, we sing and we dance.  Then, they eat and they nap.  After nap we do it all again.  I'm so excited to be a part of this little school and help them grow their program.  The other class is comprised of twelve 4/5 year olds.  This position will be much less stress after four years in a family law practice.  My family needs me at home and I need to be able to breathe more easily and enjoy their childhoods and teenagerhoods.  I'm sure this is a good move for us.  I'm excited to move on and out!
As a side note, my kids call me Muhja.  (pronounced muh-zha).  They call James Fahja.  I don't know why they do this - just being silly.  I kinda like it...
