Where the heck....? I am a bad teacher-blogger turned mom-blogger turned teacher-mom-blogger. It's been almost a month since my last post - eek! Here is a quick update (with many more frequent posts to follow - I promise!).
I've had a huge influx of Etsy orders (maps, seating charts AND paperdolls). I've drawn 6 maps, 2 sets of paperdolls and 3 seating charts - and it is only April. Do you want to add to my madness? http://funkylindsay.etsy.com (or maybe wait a few weeks)
We have a walker! It started with just a few steps and in a matter of days Eli is doing laps around the living room, carrying objects, picking things up and pulling himself up without any help. He is so sturdy and so excited. Sometimes he gets a little too excited and tries to run. This has resulted in two fat lips, a bloody nose, a black eye and an assortment of other bumps and bruises. He barely crawls anymore.
I'm still loving being back teaching and I am working smarter than ever too. I carpool with a girl who doesn't like to get to school too early, I don't linger after school in the staff room after school to chat, I use very good use of my prep period, lunch and recesses that I don't have duty, and it is my 7th year in this grade. I am only doing school planning once Eli has gone to bed or Sunday nights when my parents arrive for their weekly reunion. The last two months are my favourite time of the school year because so much is crammed in such a short period of time. It is nuts, but I love it. (Medieval Times trip, Track & Field, EQAO, performances and assemblies, rumours about the next school year, and gym outside!) This year I decided to take a break from producing/directing an epic school musical - but I can't wait until next years!
I have 1000+ unread blog posts in my google reader, 15 unwatched tivo'd things, 6 games of words with friends awaiting my turn and personal blog posts swirling in my head. I have a slew of marvellous things I want to make and do. And emails to reply to and letters to write before June.
xoxo. Stay Tuned.
