I Just Feel The Need To Blog/Write Something

I just feel the need to blog today.  I don't have any pictures to put up with it.  Hope that is okay.  If you have one that will work, please send it over.

I have been a bit overwhelmed lately.  I have had a lot to do.  Grading papers, doing report cards etc.  But the reason I have been overwhelmed is due to procrastination.  I have had plenty of time to do these things, but for some reason I had this big mental block to do it.  Do you ever get that way?  What do you do?

The kids at school are doing pretty well and are progressing despite their teacher(me).  But I do love them and for some reason they love me too.  I just can't believe how big they are all getting.

Daniel is doing well and is happy.  He was taken off of my health insurance because of his age.  But he is all okay because he has medical and got assigned to Kaiser so there will be no disruption in his medical care.  That was a great relief to me.

Tom is doing well.  Him and his office partners just changed offices(same complex) and they really like it a lot.  The rent is also cheaper.  Tom works with great people.  Everything related to the move worked out well.  Just all feel into place.

In a couple of weeks our daughter Mary and her 3 kids are coming to visit us.  We are so excited.  I really need to get the house cleaned but of course I have this mental block against that too.  In fact my Christmas decorations are still waiting to be put away.  (don't judge me)  LOL

Well, despite any mental blocks that I have, I can't help but to think how truly blessed I am and how I can see God's hand in all I do.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Totally Made My Day

Everyday I have stations in my classroom. I divide the kids into small groups to work at a certain one each day. I always have a group with me and we write paragraphs. I ask a student to give me one sentence. This is what they wrote today. Just totally made my day.

Spending The Day With Sarah

A few days ago my sweet niece, Ashley, came to visit me. She brought her very sweet baby, Sarah to see me. We had a great visist.
Here she is sitting in the "big girl" chair.
Here she is at a little park that is close to my house.

I Am Taking The Challenge

I just signed up to take the challenge.  I did this a few years ago and have decided to do it again this year.  I already have a theme worked out and words to use.  I am going to be doing motivational words.  They are words like accomplish, blessed, and courage to start out.  I just did one for x.  If you are thinking about this you should go for it.  There is lots of participation.  I was number 700.

Good Advice

Amazing words of wisdom.  Often we look around at where we are and we start doubting.  But if we really look at where we came from, we see amazing progress and growth.
