It has literally been 7 months since I posted anything...slacker much? Things were just really busy and crazy with school, and I needed to prioritize my time. Unfortunately, that meant blogging took a backseat. When I logged on today, it felt good to find out my followers have almost doubled during my absence! Wow-Thanks to all of you for your support!
Part of the reason that I have been absent is that I have been in the process of making some life changes-one being that I am leaving the classroom. I decided to pursue a degree in administration, and I will be going back to school for the next 2 years with the North Carolina Principal Fellows Program. This has been a REALLY exciting change for me, but I also find myself sad at the thought that I won't have "my kids" anymore. It's kind of like that bittersweet feeling that you get on the last day of school, but a lot worse! I LOVE teaching, and I will miss it TERRIBLY. But, I think that a degree in school administration is the best decision for my family in the long run, so that is the path I will take. Hopefully, I can work in an elementary school, so that I won't be too far removed from sweet kiddos. I also get time with little ones at church on Sundays, and that helps!
There have been a few other changes and events in my life too-Here are the last 7 months in a flash!
|My litte bro graduated from college! Arrgh! So proud of him!|
|One of my besties and I ran the Flying Pirate Half Marathon in Kitty Hawk, NC. I beat my PR by 30 minutes, and lost 15 pounds while training!|
|My husband and I revisited our honeymoon destination in Gatlinburg TN, and did some hiking-Both of these are photos from one of the hikes that we did.|
|I am actually standing at the edge of a cliff in this photo, but it is so hard to tell because of the giant CLOUD that blew in when we reached the jump off!|
