Spring Break

I have been seriously neglecting my blog and haven’t been creating many resources lately. It’s been a busy school year – professionally and personally!

I started a long-term substitute teaching position right after winter break and I have a couple weeks left before I return to day-to-day subbing. I’ve really enjoyed my time being a K-2 reading teacher. It’s a lot of work, but it feels good to be going to the same classroom and working with the same students and teachers each day. I will definitely miss it!

On a personal level, Cameron is 19 months old now and keeping Nick and me very busy (and tired)! It’s hard to believe he’s going to be a big brother in six months! We are expecting another baby in early October. We’re super excited and this pregnancy is already going very quickly!

My energy level has been so low lately, but now that I’m in the second trimester, the morning sickness is dwindling and I’m hoping some of my motivation will be returning soon. There are just about ten weeks left of school once spring break is over and then I’ll be off for summer vacation! I’m hoping to return for September before the baby comes, but as per my doctor’s advice, we’ll be taking it day by day and seeing what I can handle once we get closer.

I have been intending on getting some writing done and posting some new resources for a while now, so when I realized I had a few spare moments to myself before I start dinner, I figured I would update my blog. Hopefully this is just the first of many new entries!
