September 1st? But it was just May!
It's September 1st.
To be completely honest I haven't missed blogging that much. I've kind of enjoyed living life without thinking I should be taking pictures of this to share or how something the kids said would make a great post.
But, on the flip side, I've often enjoyed reading my blog going back in time to encounter the memories I shared here. I regret that the last couple of years I didn't record some of our special adventures. I always said that my blog was my digital scrapbook and I love looking at all the pictures, reading the stories, and remembering the past.
This year I'm having my third graders blog to practice their writing skills. I thought the blog would give them an authentic reason to write. Since I was encouraging them to write, I thought it was time I got back to writing myself. I'm not promising daily updates and will not be creating a blogging calendar or going blog wild as in the olden days, but I will pop in now and again. I'm one of those teachers who truly believe that leading by example is the way to gain my student's respect and ultimately get the results that are desired.
So here we go...again.
What have I missed???
Does anybody even visit me anymore?
