After School

Well I have finally graduated! Actually this event took place a few months ago, but I am so excited that I finally have completed my degree. It just goes to say that you are never too old to go to school. I am still teaching preschoolers, and I have to say this year has been a challenging year. I have students who just turned three before school started and students who are five going into kindergarten next year. They are all very active. This class really has to be kept busy with no down time. I am constantly on the internet looking for new ideas.
So now that I have graduated, I am enjoying getting back into crafting and spending lots of time with family. I also have a house that I feel never got cleaned during the time I was in school. So lots of catching up with house work (or not). I am also going to work on this blog. I really want to create a blog that I am proud of. I am definitely going to try to post at least once a week.
I still have two children at home. My daughter graduates high school this year and is frantically in the process of deciding what is next in her life. My son is enjoying his high school years. We had a great time getting together with family during the Christmas season. It was great seeing family that we haven't seen in few years at a wedding and visiting my husband's family over Thanksgiving. Now that we are into our second month of 2012, we are really deciding on our goals for the year. I saw on a friend's blog that she went to a couples event at her church and learned about setting goals with your spouse and doing things together. This could be planning a garden togethe, a vacation, or maybe just planning meals together. I really believe this is great even for those of us that are not young couples. I find now that our children are older, we really need to work on just being a couple again. So I believe this will be a big goal for me during 2012. Just learning to enjoy being half of a couple and finding common ground again.
Well I hope everybody has a great weekend and hopefully many of you have long weekend. Get out there and have fun!
This is a picture of an ornament that my class gave me that I student taught in. I will treasure this through the coming years.
This is a picture of our family at a family wedding over the holidays. It was great seeing family members that we haven't seen in a few years. We really shouldn't wait for major life events to get together.
