I haven't posted in um...four years? Where has the time gone? There have been some huge changes in my life, the biggest being that I am now a working mom.
Two years ago, I returned to teaching - sixth grade one year, and last year second. This year, I'm moving back up to sixth. I feel like a yo-yo bouncing around grade levels like that.
As August rapidly approaches, I'm getting more and more excited about the upcoming school year. I can't stop surfing the internet looking for teaching ideas, one of those centering on student blogging. As I read an article about how to introduce students to blogging, it dawns on me that I use to blog. And voila, here I am. I feel I should practice what I'm about to teach, perhaps try to post more often than once every four years.
Other changes, well the kids have grown. Ian is a Star Wars loving, Lego building fifth grader. Laurel is a Greek myth loving, party planning third grader. My husband, Paul, and I try to keep up with them, feeling always behind but extremely happy. Being summer time, I'm thoroughly enjoying my time with the kids. We're playing lots of board games and enjoying the pool. Life is definitely good!
