Resolutions & a little of this & that...

After a super busy and fun three days I am just savoring the quiet before Ethan gets up. Today is going to be a chill day for us at home as we have been on the go since Monday.

First, I want to share my resolutions for 2014. I am linking up with A Peach for the Teach. I just discovered this blog and cannot wait to explore it some more!

Personal: I think I may have said this one last year...relax. I am a high energy person and quite impulsive and I need to relax. Especially with a second little one on the way I need to chill out and realize not everything can get done.

Professional and Classroom: With a lot more students with autism coming into the ECSE classroom I need to learn to use the many visuals I have more effectively. One of the biggest problems I have faced with this is organizing the visuals and making sure they are readily accessible at all times.  

Blog/TPT: I must admit there is nothing specific with this other than to link more with people. I have loved being able to link up with teacher in similar positions as sometimes in my building I can feel pretty isolated just beacause of who and what I teach.

Just for Fun: I am hoping to really create more ME time and Hubby and Me time. This was a resolution of mine last year and honestly, I didn't do a good job of it. I feel like I am teacher and come home and am in Mom mode until I go to bed. I need to create a little more balance in my life.

Now for some random...we made these cut stocking with the kiddos at the end of the week. Lacing the stocking and pulling cotton are great fine motor skills, which is something my kiddos can always use extra practice with.

On Monday, we found out...

Also, stay tuned...I am hoping to share a new font or more if I have time and have a new winter freebie I am posting tomorrow.
