Slice of Life hosted at the
During the summer months, it would seem life would slow down and I would be tapping the keyboard for some inspiration.
Life in the summer with active three year olds, and as a teacher that never wants to stop learning and reading, is FULL of stories.
So, for this slice, I could write . . .
*about the frustrating "nap time" that ended in no nap (and a bit of destruction in the bedroom when I left them for quiet time) yesterday with my three year old daughters.
*a letter to my girls about how much I love and adore them even when I'm angry or frustrated. (And then I read THIS and I am enough.)
*about learning how to balance being a mom and trying to still take care of ME
*about how I spend my time throughout the day and wonder how I can re-prioritize time first for God and myself. (Thanks Pastor Tyler for the suggestion to just break the snooze button and just get up!)
*about learning from my three year olds on how to pick books at the library (perhaps a #NerdyBookClub post?!?)
*about not feeling ready to return to school yet, but I'll be ready when I need to be.
*about how I'm so far behind on my summer to-do list: still need to organize my school bins, photographs, delete emails. Oh, and start that diet and exercising.
*about how I still need to finish reading the final #cyberPD reflections about the book Who Owns the Learning: Preparing Students for Success in the Digital Age by Alan November, write a post about the #TeachersConnect idea, and carefully select picture books for the annual #pb10for10.
*about my new room set up. (Oh, this reminds me I need to print the Staples rewards and shop!)
*about how much easier it is now that the girls are potty trained! (#celebrate!)
*about looking forward to serving as a school staff at Feed My Starving Children next week
So much to think about -- so much to write.
My life is full of SToRY . . . Just too little time.
Today I've sliced and captured some moments.
For right now, it's time to be a mom.
