I have quite a bit to catch up on since this year has brought me so many new experiences, some of which have caught me off guard!
+ First and foremost I wanted to share with everyone that I will be moving up from the preschool back into the elementary school to assist in...drumroll...first grade! I work at a private Christian school, which is made up of a preschool, elementary, and middle school. I have loved my time in preschool and I look forward to beginning this next chapter in first grade.
+ I will begin online classes in the summer to earn my early education credits so that one day I could have my very own preschool classroom! Surprisingly I loved this school year and have learned so much through working with three-year-olds. It was a bit of a shock to go from second grade to working with preschoolers, but I’ve been humbled in this experience and am excited to add to my expertise.
+ I’ve begun Weight Watchers yet again and I’m already in week two and have lost more than 4 lbs! I loved linking up last year with other teacher bloggers and you can find those posts here. However, I haven’t been able to find this linkup now that I’ve started again, so on my lifestyle blog, Primarily Inspired, I’ve started my very own linkup to share in my weight loss journey in hopes that it supports and builds up women who want to join. Feel free to check it out and join me every Saturday for Slim Down Saturday!
+ We’ve bought a new car in preparation for a growing family! No, we’re not pregnant...yet. But, we are planning ahead and it was the right choice for us to begin thinking of the ways that we could benefit from having a new car. So, we traded in my little Mini Coupe for a Lexus Hybrid! Read about my journey with my little Mini and the not-so-difficult decision to trade it in here.
Phew! I know that was a lot but I tried to hit all the major things that have been going on in these last few months! Especially those things that have been keeping me away from the blog for so long!
I am excited for my future in first grade and sharing those experiences here. I’ve missed blogging so much! I am also tinkering with the idea to give my blog a little facelift so be on the lookout for that!
Thank you SO much to everyone who has followed Sliding Into Second Grade over the years and through this transition from second grade, to preschool and the blog being a little scarce, and now back to first grade. Without you this blog wouldn’t be what it is so I thank each one of you!
