Happy New Year! How many of you stayed up (or maybe even went out) to ring in the new year? We were old and went to bed early. Actually, I made it to 10 before heading to bed, but travelling with a toddler will wear you out quickly! I'm going to keep it pretty short, but I want to post my currently!
Most of these are pretty straight-forward. We flew to visit my family in Mississippi and just got back yesterday afternoon. Keagan LOVED flying! I think he's more interested in planes right now than trains. He was a very good boy, but he wouldn't leave mommy's side. This meant I carried all 32 pounds of him through three airports, and I ended up eating with him in my lap multiple times. Steven and others tried to help, but he mainly just wanted me. It's been nice today letting him enjoy all of his toys and not needing to be in my lap all the time. Of course, our living room is covered in every toy that he got for his birthday/Christmas. Oh well!
In other news (more teacher-related), there is a new blog in town! A group of 20 wonderful reading specialists/coaches are starting a collaborative blog that will be full of great ideas for literature instruction. I'm so excited to be working with this group of talented women, and I can't wait for our big launch next week! Make sure you're following us on Bloglovin so you can collect a bunch of great freebies and learn all about the participants. Everything is all set up and ready to go!
