Can you believe that 2012 is almost finished and a new year is about to begin?
My Sweet Mom was right!! Time does fly as you get older.
As I watch my own children grow up so quickly, I'll be the first to admit that I wish it would slow down... just a bit.
I'm linking up with Jen from Teacher's Cauldron for :
If you are like me, I always have several New Year's resolutions.
Unfortunately, I'm lucky if I can stick to 1 of them.
So I thought I'd come up with 1 resolution for personal and 1 for blogging that I plan to
hope to stick with.
Personal: Take more family photos. My kids are growing up so fast. I'm always enjoying those precious moments, but never seem to capture those memories as they happen to save for later. Here's a couple aside from birthdays and Christmas that I managed to take this year.
This was taken during our family fishing trip to ReelFoot Lake in TN. My husband loves to fish. He caught nothing.. nada.. zilch... the whole weekend we were there. We still had fun... there was a huge craft fair in the area which I enjoyed checking out. So while the boys were fishing, I was able to spend some quality time with my daughter.
This picture was taken on a Saturday morning during deer hunting season in our neck of the woods. My littlest one happened to look into our back yard and noticed 3 deer taking refuge from the hunters. So like any little 3 year old boy will do, he had to go get his toy gun
please don't judge.
AND for my blogging resolution:
To post more comments both for those who make comments to me and to the other wonderful bloggers that I follow. I get so many fabulous ideas and inspiration from all of you. Life gets busy, and I need to take a few minutes of each day to leave comments. I know I love to receive them myself and everyone puts so much effort, time, and bits of love into their posts.
As we close out 2012, I just want to say "THANK YOU". This has been such a remarkable year of change for me. I began this blog last February and soon began creating units for TPT. You have inspired me, made my day over and over again, and made me a better teacher. I have met so many amazing teachers that I call friends even though I have never met them face to face. I am so excited to walk into my classroom each day and begin those daily adventures with my 3rd graders. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of this!!!
Enjoy these last few days of 2012.
