Another Year Gone

*Ahem* Yup, I'm still here. A little battered and bruised around the edges, it's been a rough fall, but I'M STILL STANDING Y'ALL! I made it through my first quarter of full-time student teaching, as did my family, and am looking forward to the rest of the year. Let me tell you, teaching is AWESOME! I knew I would enjoy it but I wasn't prepared for how much I would love it. I can't wait to get there in the morning, I'm loathe to leave in the afternoon - or evening, you teachers know how that is - and even the bad days are still pretty awesome.

Things at home have been let go quite a bit and I'm paying for it with some, er, interesting behaviors from my kids, but I think the adjustment period is finally past us and we are all settling in to our new normal.

Happy New Year from all of us and I promise to post more often, I've got some really funny teaching stories!!!

When did my kids get so damn tall?

Holy crap, when DID they get so damn tall!? Beautiful photo, nonetheless. :)

I'm thrilled that you are so enjoying teaching. Maybe you will help me find my joy again. Right now, I'm just not feeling it. :(

PLEASE start sharing your teaching stories!

Happy New Year, my friend!

It's good to *hear* from you. What a beautiful family photo - I know all about having too tall kids. I guess it's just an occupational hazzard!
