I just wanted to stop by for a moment to say hello. I have missed spending regular time on my blog and on yours. Please pardon my absence and know that I miss all my lovely blogging friends. I thought that I would leave a little eye candy for you and offer an update in case you are wondering where I've been. First, the eye candy.
Today was our fourth day of school, and I feel still woefully behind. My to do list is as long as my leg. (I'm 5'10", so that's a long leg.) I've taught fourth grade for the past seven years. Believe me, second grade is an entirely different world. My second graders resemble eager puppies more than they resemble the fourth graders I'm used to.
I really am enjoying the children and the challenges though. We've been having a lot of fun getting to know each other. I love their eagerness and the happy little faces that continually smile up at me. I love the exuberance with which they approach any task. It's been good. Very good.
Thank you for your kind thoughts and cheering emails and comments. I'm hoping to be back to normal by this weekend. Know that I miss you. Blessings to you and yours.
The first picture is from an old issue of Martha Stewart Living. The second picture comes from an internet shopping site. Toast, I think. The third photograph was featured on my friend, Studio Wellspring's blog.
In case you want more...
