✨So you decided you want to get into Special Education, but your wondering where do I start and what CSETs do I need to take? You will always want to confirm with your state guidelines and your counselor through your university but here is how it worked for me in California and through @nationaluniversity
••You can take ANY CSETs to get your special education credential. I chose to take my multiple subject CSETS because I want a dual credential and the multiple subject exams will also let me get my K-6 multiple subject credential. You may be interested in science, math, English etc. Or maybe you want to work with students in a particular subject, so you can take any CSETs that you feel will be the most useful in your teaching career. 📚✏️ In my state of California, regardless of what CSETs you take, your sped credential allows you to teach K-12th 👩🏼🏫. ✨✨stay tuned for my upcoming post, how I prepared and passed my CSETs 🤫😦🤯✨✨

In the craziness of what has also been known as dance show this week, it hit me at school pick up yesterday that my biggest baby has finished year 1 and my next school run will have two of them in uniform 😭 I can’t begin to tell you how mental this week has been... it’s also been one of Barney’s busiest weeks at work so trying to organise three girls in two different year groups, in five different dances with four costume changes, one quick change, praying Connie doesn’t need feeding, sending Nancy home after her dance before she loses it with tiredness and entertaining Betsy whilst she waits for Matilda to finish has been a complete BREEZE 😂😂😂 not to mention all the chaperoning of the other dancers on arrival to the theatre and running round with grips and hairspray 💃 I’ve had to be in three places at once... missed Betsy’s nursery leavers party, forgotten to take her thank you cards in, raced round the house to find my favourite bottle of prosecco to give to Matilda’s teacher because I had NO teacher gifts (the TA’s had to do with a thank you at drop off 🤦♀️, they got nice Christmas gifts though 😂) and then spent an hour last night after the show going to different places to pick the rest of the brood up as Barn’s colleagues picked the BEST time and night for a leaving meal 😖😖 other than a MAJOR tantrum yesterday from the ginge which involved her throwing her flip flops at Auntie Sam and setting in some sort of rigor mortis so that I couldn’t get her in the car seat, this week has run pretty smoothly considering the lack of food, sleep and general downtime for the French girls. In spite of all this craziness it’s one of my favourite times of the year and tonight, after a lot of organisation backstage, I get to watch them, all of them 🙌🙌 Us dance mums really do have each others backs 💪Two more shows to go today then tomorrow you’ll find me sleeping and crying into my rather large glass of anything alcoholic at the realisation that my babies are growing up #wheredoistart #endofyear #endofyearone #danceshow #danceshowweek #dancemum #frenchgirlgang #mumoffour #mumoffourgirls #timeforsleep
What’s with the screen 📺 shot? 👀 .
I took a screenshot of my work out at this moment to show you guys that 32 minutes in I wanted to quit. 🛑 This is the moment when I wanted to put my weights down and stop the work out and just be done.
Eight minutes that was all that was left; 4 more exercises and a cool down. I’m human I don’t want to do it every day. However I know that my goals are worth pushing those extra eight minutes for..
What are you pushing for? What are your goals? Are you ready to start working towards him for days a week with me? Either drop an emoji or send me a DM and we will work on it. .

Looking to simplify our lives and home. Except we are musicians. And I’m crafty. And a seamstress. And we homeschool. And we have a baby. And I like things. Lol.
No but seriously.
Friends, hooooowww do I do this? Where do we start? I don’t want to live in s tiny house or be an extreme minimalist, but I’m tired of stuff. Overtaking my life. Piles of things I kind of need, not sure if I need, know I will regret if I get rid of...
I’ve been slowly trying to get rid of things, every day I make tiny piles. But how can I make life at home simpler?

Try these energy bites on for size.

1 cup oatmeal
1/4 cup raw honey
1 cup natural peanut butter
Add some chocolate chips, mix ingredients together and roll into balls. You can keep them cold in the fridge, but they won't last long! 😍
I’m not sure when it happened, but I fell out of love with photography.
I loved it.... it was a fantastic focus for me to take notice of everything around me and appreciate the everyday things more creatively.
. For a long time now, I only get my camera out for “jobs” and holidays. I’ve downloaded my holiday photos from Bali but I haven’t even looked at them (we’ve been back 2 months).
I used to love a project: thinking of how to interpret a subject or word. I haven’t done that for several years now.
I’ve lost confidence now too..
I need to pick up a camera for fun - the way I used to a few years ago and just go out and enjoy experimenting and having fun during a day out. .
I think the paid work took the fun away - it was often loaded with stress and worry even if meeting and photographing people was fun.
I wonder if I can find that excitement and passion again??
I’m not sure where to begin..,.

This past June I went Indiana and attended my first ever Summit with my company
I got the 4 other coaches to go to the bikini competiton with me and watch as the men and women who worked hard to get there walked across the stage in their bikinis and bathing suits
I decided right the that next year that would be my goal
I came home from that weekend and asked Scott if he would support me in a bikini competition and he said "yes"
We've already bought our tickets for Summit next year and as soon as registration opens up I'll register for the Classics
I have no clue what I'm doing but I'm excited and nervous for this next challenge
Tips, tricks, resources and support are all EXTREMELY welcomed

Amongst all the beauty on these squares, which I absolutely love by the way, I feel the need to add a bit of my own kitchen chaos. This is the tip of the iceberg and it all needs clearing up. Cooking for 10+ friends and organising a train trip up north today. See you on the other side. #wheredoistart #startsomewhere
A realistic shot of what our kitchen island tends to look like, especially on the weekends.🤦🏼♀️ I spent the morning on my laptop for the online Young Living Rally. We left and went swimming for the day and just got home from the grocery store. So basically life happened today and not cleaning or tidying.
I always thought my house would be cleaner on the weekends with my husband home to help, but it tends to be the opposite. I think because he would rather go out and play. 🤷♀️ How does your house survive kids being home for summer and husband's home on the weekends? Obviously I welcome and need any and all suggestions...maybe I should just start throwing stuff away...
