Currently #1 of Sweet '16

Ok so I know I am late to the party again, but I really wanted to participate this month so here it goes!

Listening: Since it is Sunday afternoon, we have already been to church and had a nice lunch. Now I am getting to spend some quality time with my sweet little girl. She LOVES putting together puzzles and they are such a great activity that we do together.

Loving: My Christmas break was absolutely WONDERFUL!! I thoroughly enjoyed every minute at home with my little one. We got to do lots of fun things like going to visit the zoo since we were having 80 degree days here in SC even though it was December!

Thinking: I have so much to do to get prepared for next week. I am just feeling overwhelmed with my new position in 2nd grade because it is such a new experience for me. I have never taught anything higher than 1st grade until this year.

Wanting: I want to feel more prepared as a 2nd grade teacher. I feel like everyday I am trying to "swim upstream" as I am learning along with my students.

Needing: I would love more time at home with my little girl. Macy is just growing up too fast. She is now 2 1/2 and changing everyday. After having 2 weeks off with her, I could definitely see how people love being stay at home mommies!

One Little Word: My One Little Word for 2016 is LOVE! I am definitely in love with my little family. I appreciate all the time we get to spend together. I love my students, but I am definitely working hard this year to begin to love teaching again.

  1. It was pretty warm here over winter break as well. Although now it's way too cold for me to handle!

    1. Yes our weather changed dramatically too! Hopefully this cold weather will help keep our mosquitos down this summer! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I would take some of your weather! We've been having cold weather with negative wind chills. Yuck! Teaching a new grade can be so overwhelming, but I bet you're doing a great job! We teachers are always so hard on ourselves.

    1. I can't imagine having negative wind chills!! Thanks for the positive encouragement. I know I am harder on myself than anyone else is. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I was even later to the party than you this month! It sounds like you had a wonderful break! I am from SC too. I miss it so much. Good luck with the rest of your year.
