Currently December

I cannot believe it's December 1st.  To say this school year is flying by is the understatement of the year.  I am linking up with Farley for her December Currently.  I cannot believe my last blog post was Currently October.  Where did the rest of October and November go, you may ask.  I have absolutely no idea I tell you, but I sure was busy, both at school and home.

October was filled with the last few fall baseball games, celebrating my middle son's 12th birthday, many, many, manyfootball games, Trick-or-Treat, and for the first time EVER since I started teaching no days off in October.  Boo!  My boys had 1.5 days off and I had professional development.  Our October trip to Door County was pushed off a week into November.

November was filled with hunting (my oldest son got a 7 point buck and my middle got a doe so exciting for both of them!), a quick two night getaway to Door County, a very exciting run leading up to a state championship game for our local football team (unfortunately we lost, but what an exciting season it was),  a delicious and relaxing Thanksgiving celebration, NO black Friday shopping for this lady.  I FINALLY had a couple days off.  I tell you we should NEVER start school in August and then not have a day off until Thanksgiving.  It's way too long of a haul for those of us who work with actual children every day.

My cute turkey border for November. It's hard to see, but my classroom has the most amazing view.

Thanksgiving is still my favorite holiday.

This school year is going so fast and I am absolutely loving my kids this year.  They are so much fun and overall have a great work ethic and are wonderful collaborators. I honestly love my job so much this year, despite how unbelievably stressful teaching has become.  I'm sure you fellow teachers know what I mean!

I absolutely cannot believe that it is December 1st.  We have three full weeks of school off and then TWO WEEKS off for Christmas break.  It has been many years since we had a break this long and I am really looking forward to it.  I am having a wonderful school year and have so many things to blog about, but my free time lately has been spent on so many things, but obviously not blogging. I still can be found of twitter  @luvbcd fairly regularly so if you have a question about anything you read on the blog, the best way to get a response is through twitter.  I have not given up this blog, I just took an unplanned break to focus on school and my busy life with three active boys.  I hope you all are well and enjoying the holiday season.  Hopefully 2014 will be the year of the blog for me.
