Getting Started

Well here I am getting started again in the world of blogging. I am a 48 year old wife, mother, college student, and preschool teacher. I have tried blogging before but have not succeeded because I just haven't kept up with it. Blogging is something I would really love to get into. I have so many interests and feel that blogging would introduce me to a whole new world to learn and share. My trouble has been time management. Hopefully I will get better at this.

I love getting and sharing ideas for teaching preschoolers. I also love making things, especially crafts that I can turn into gifts. My daughter and I have gotten into decorating picture frames and knitting with the knifty knitter. I really do not have a lot of spare time, but I graduate with my bachelors degree in December, so hopefully then I will have more time to dedicate to crafts.

I am so excited about getting my college degree! This is a major life goal, and I am finally achieving it at the age of 48. It just goes to prove that you are never too old to accomplish your goals. I would love to hear from others who have done this. I am going to look into getting my masters degree but will take a few months off after graduation to just enjoy being.

My daughter graduates from high school just a few months after I graduate form college. We are planning on taking a family cruise together to celebrate. This will also be another first for me. So excited about this experience. We have been having fun looking up cruises on the internet. I think we are going to go to the Bahamas!

Well this is all for me today. I am going to spend a little bit of time in researching about blogging. I would like to know if you can add other pages with tabs, or does it all have to be the same page? So much to learn, but I am going to have fun learning.

I am including a picture of my family with this post. They are the loves of my life. My oldest son will not be in the picture, because he is a US Marine, and was not able to be home on Mother's Day when the picture was taken. Hopefully more pictures will follow. The picture does have three of my four children, my husband, mother, plus a few more extended family.

Well I hope everybody has a great weekend. It is hot here in the south, so we are going to try to stay cool!
