Where Have I Been?

Blogging friends I am sorry for my absence in the blogging world. I am missing blogging and checking out all of your posts. In the last 6 months I have gone through a lot of personal changes in my life and the class I have this year has been extremely challenging. I have had to modify a lot of the lessons I teach. I am also trying to focus on my dissertation so that I can finish school. With all of these things going on I have had to let a few things go. I hope to find some balance at some point in the near future so that I can join you all again soon.

I completely understand where you are coming from. I changed grades this year and that has been a quite a challenge.
I hope things settle down for you!

April,
I do miss your posts, but there is NO way you can do it all. Focus on your family, your class and your coursework. Then when you have time, come and visit us.

Have missed your posts April. I had a very difficult class a few years ago and I know how draining it can be and then on top of everything else, it just wears you out.

In life it is so important to always be kind to yourself. Remember to take time out for YOU!

We are often very good at giving this advice to others but forget to do it for ourselves.

Your blog is one of the first I ever found and it lit up my kindergarten world! You are incredible and full of so many fantastic ideas. Take as much time as you need because we will all be here waiting for you when you are able to come back :)
