March 9, 2014.
Do you know what the significance of this date is?
This was the last time I came on here to write. I know....YIKES! =(
I was so proud of my newly designed blog and excited to be a part of the whole blogging community. What happened?!
Life, I guess....and then excuse after excuse after excuse.
The year I started this blog (2013-14 school year), I have to admit....I had a loving, yet VERY challenging class. I found it difficult to commit to blogging, therefore, I simply didn't.
So, why didn't I just start fresh over the summer? Why didn't I take another stab at the whole blogging thing the following school year? The school year of 2014-15, I had the BEST class...what was my excuse? Of course, with the beginning of every school year, things were SUPER hectic. Well, I just kept putting it off and I kept saying that I would start back up, but then I again....didn't.
Then 2015 happened.
In mid-February, my grandpa fell. From February to May, my days consisted of school and my evenings, nights, and weekends were all about my grandpa.
My grandpa passed away May 4th. I was a hot mess...and truth be told.... a year and a half later...there are times that I still am.
Whoever said it will get easier....lied. I love and miss my grandpa; I think about him everyday.

A month later, on June 22, 2015, my grandma underwent surgery for a knee replacement! The surgery went well and she was recovering amazingly. Things were going a little too smoothly, I guess, because 3 weeks after she got her new knee....my grandma fell! She broke her new hardware and fractured her femur.
Well, fast forward through a 3 month stay in rehab, a blood clot, followed by a 2 month stay with my aunt, my grandma finally came home after Thanksgiving. Thankfully my class last school year was AMAZING and very supportive.

So now, here we are....another school year is in the works; 2016-17...this is year number 8 for me!! Again, I find myself saying that school is a bit hectic. Ok, who am I kidding....it is A LOT hectic!! (LoL)
I've come to the realization, however, that there won't be a "perfect" time to come back to my blog. If I keep waiting, it might never happen.
That brings me to this post today.

First Grade has got me like ZzZzZzZ!!
Now, I'm not going to promise that I will be on here every other day or even weekly. But, what I WILL say, is that I am going to try my best to start blogging again.
I know this post wasn't very informative or full of educational resources and ideas...gosh, this is supposed to be a TEACHING blog after all!
....but, hopefully you guys will understand where I'm coming from and you'll want to stay tuned in anyways.
Until next time friends. =)
