There once was a blogger...

Who blogged all the time. Every hour of every day she would blog,blog,blog. She was usually very dedicated. Only on occasion would she disappoint her fellow bloggers. When once in a blue moon her fingers stopped typing and she had a cold!!!

Now every post I write is a treasure because it's not very often I press "Publish" anymore.

I have thought about taking a bloggy break and just let everyone know that I would be away from the blogasphere until I find some time to sit down and really "blog" again. But I am afraid that inside of me, deeeeeeeeeeep inside, I just can't do it!!! Because when bloggers take a break (and I am not talking about a week or two that I can totally understand) but months and months. It drives me nuts!

So I just can't do it to my dedicated readers. I am so sorry though at how sporadic I have been. I am bordering on ridiculousness!!! I always tried to be as frequent as I possibly could but, I know you all understand that right now I am so occupied with other things.

Again I am so enjoying teaching. When a little girl recites the Bible verse we are working on without missing a beat, I am so PROUD!!! I am so honored and humbled that I am in these little people's lives, making a difference, teaching them things that they will need all of their lives.

When a students says "I am so glad you are my teacher." and "This class is so much fun!" I just want to scream with glee!!

I will leave this apology post with this small story....

The other day I told my students to stand up and push in their chairs. It was almost time for lunch and they were getting restless and not paying attention to what I was teaching. I said "Okay class we need to stretch, we need to get these jitter bugs out of our system." I said "touch your head." They touched their heads. "Touch your feet," they bent over and touched their feet. "Touch your nose." Every student of mine put their finger IN their nose. I just about melted!!!LOL

I hope you're writing all of these precious moments down in a journal of some sort. Your mom told me years ago to do this and I never did. Boy, do I regret it now. Moral of the story: Always listen to your Mom.

We would miss you too much if you took one of those bloggy breaks. Just check in and let us know how you are doing, post a pic or two... or ten. Or, why don't you let your sis take your place for a while? Kind of like a substitute teacher!

Just a thought.

Oops. No, I am not Susie Homemaker. Mackenzie was doing a layout for someone and was still signed in. Sorry.

Cute story!

I would be sad if you took a break. I was once grounded (I grounded myself) for a week from the internet.... I thought I would DIE!

You have no reason to apologize. of course we love to hear from you, but you always have to put your realy life first - before blogging =)

I'm so glad to hear things are going well for you and the class. This is such an exciting time for you!!
