Ok so I didn’t die. I wasn’t kidnapped or held hostage or living in a third world country without access to the Internet. I was just buried under a giant heap of schoolwork and this is the first time I’ve had a chance to write something that is not a) a lesson plan or b) a reflection about student teaching.
My first student teaching experience has come to a close, which means I only have one left (ONE!) before graduation. As reluctant as I was to work with kindergarten, I found myself not wanting to leave! Those little people are so awesome. Having a bad day? Hang out with a five-year-old for a few minutes and you’ll feel better, guaranteed. Their excitement for learning is absolutely contagious! I wish I could bottle it up and keep it forever. I’m super-psyched to hang out with my second-graders this spring, but it’s nice to know that my kindergarten people will be right down the hall =]
It’s been kind of a tough month for our family in a lot of ways, so I’m extra glad that the holidays are in full swing! I love this time of year. Our tree is up and stockings are hung. It’s so exciting to make Landon part of our holiday traditions!
Speaking of that little booger, he’s been doing some serious growing. He’s weighing in at 16 pounds these days, and is plowing through baby food and cereal like a tank. Santa Clause is definitely going to be bringing him some nine-month clothes!
Hoping to be a little more diligent in keeping up with this blog now that I have about five minutes of my life back. But enough about me– how are you?
