Today was my first day back after 2 glorious weeks off, and I’m exhausted! It was great to be back, see the kids, and set all my plans in motion for the 2nd half of the year. But I fell asleep on the couch for almost 3 hours when I got home, I was so tired. So there went all my productive plans for the rest of the day.

But it is a great new year, and I have lots of great lesson plans, books to review, crafts to make, things to cook, and things to sell in the upcoming months. I’m working on some winter-themed lessons with pre-k, and this month I’m doing a Laura Numeroff author study with kindergarten. And I have to track down my big book order for the year. It was placed in November and still hasn’t come, and I would love to get my hands on those books for displays, book talks, and lessons. So many things are happening around here these days, but for now I’ve just got to get some sleep!
