Feeling Blessed!

There have been many changes for us this year and we have been quite busy, but I am finally at a point where I can sit down each week and blog.  As I am sitting here I am overwhelmed by how many ways I am thankful.

The first is that I am composing this post on our fabulous new blog design!  Yay!  Tenille at Designs by Tenille was terrific to work with and we are so happy with our final results!

The second, I have moved to kindergarten this year and although I miss working next to Erin and being with my first grade team, I am so happy with my move.  Kindergarten is truly a reminder of why I became a teacher.  My kiddos come in every morning with a smile on their face and a story to tell.  They are so excited to learn EVERYTHING and SO PROUD when they are able to share what they know with the class or do a project that looks kinda sorta like it is supposed to!  It just makes me smile sitting here.  I love that they feel so good about themselves and are so kind to each other.  It warms my heart.

I am also very blessed to have wonderful teachers working with my own children.  I just finished their parent teacher conferences and am so excited for them.  I know looking at their work that they are learning and growing academically, but after meeting their teachers, I know they are growing as little people too.  They know them.  They know what makes them happy.  They know their strengths and they are willing to take the time to help them where they need a little more help.   They are helping them be part of a learning community and teaching them that they are valued!  SO blessed!

AND finally... we have 560 followers to our TPT store!  We are so excited and want to share a special writing freebie with you! Just click the pick!
