Tic-Tac-Toe and Breaking the 1 blog a day rule

OK so I saw this linky before I saw the currently today. And I just decided that I needed to do both of them. So here it goes.


So it is a tic tac toe linky. I have chosen the left vertical column. 
So here goes...

I went to College at Washington State University's Vancouver campus. GREAT teaching program! I think my favorite memory was probably the day that we made puppets in art class. Everyone's puppets were so different. Here are a few pictures.

My first year teaching:
Hmmm where to start. So I Applied for the job as sort of a joke. I knew where I wanted to live(and wasn't going to budge on that) and this job was 55 miles away. I NEVER thought that I would get an interview let alone a job. So I applied. Interviewed. Had lunch with my dad after the interview (the job was literally 1/2 way between where he lives and where I live) then drove home. Pulled up in front of my house and my phone rang it was the principal offering me a job teaching Kindergarten. I went into the interview with NO idea what grade it was for and left the interview with the same question-they were actually hiring 3 of us K, 1st and 2nd. 
I of course said YES. Even though I knew that it was going to mean some difficult decisions. In the end I decided I really was NOT going to move. So I commuted 1 hour each way to work. I had THE class, you know that one that NOBODY wants... yeah. But in the end I would have traded any of those kids for anything. I loved that quirky bunch! 

My favorite grade to teach: This is a tricky question. Since the first day of 1st grade I have wanted to teach 1st grade.  I student taught 1st grade and loved it. Then I taught a year of kinder. Then last year I was back in 1st and I missed kinder! This year I am headed back to Kinder and I absolutely can't wait! I LOVE KINDERGARTEN! Never thought I would say that growing up. I have been assured by my principal that I can stay there a while :) 

There you have it. Enjoy the sunshine!

July Currently.. On the first!

I have decided to blog again. I severely neglected my blog this year and I have come to the conclusion that I need to write to keep myself sane. So I have decided to write at least 1 time per week this summer. That is my goal.

Here is the promised currently.

Listening: Yes I am 24 and yes I watch General Hospital EVERY day. What can I say I am addicted. It started in college and has continued. Sometimes I get a few days behind then have to have a DVR GH marathon, today for example. Anyone else out in teacher blog land that watches?

Loving: I went to the middle of nowhere Eastern WA this weekend to meet my new nephew. He is ADORABLE. I love him and his sweet baby smell and snuggles. I did not however love the H-O-T weather and 8 hour drive each way. They live on a farm... A big farm.  Pictures later. 

Thinking: Laundry. I hate doing laundry. Actually no I don't hate doing the laundry I hate putting the laundry away. I have far too many clothes and every time I do laundry I remember that when they won't all fit in the drawers and closet... It's a problem I tell you. Maybe that is what I will complete this week-clothes purging. I also have a baby swaddler to make for a friend who is due to have a sweet baby girl any day. So excited to know someone having a GIRL! I have also been working on knitting a blanket for her. So that is something else to finish.

Wanting: Like I said I don't like laundry. Anyone love laundry who wants to come and do mine? J/k... sort of. 

Needing: yeah it's 8:00 and I have yet to eat dinner. I just got out of the car... don't know what to eat, mostly because I also need to go grocery shopping...

Tips, Tricks or hints: Don't neglect. This year I not only didn't write but I have also been neglecting my blog stalking this school year. I have missed you all! 

Head on over and link up with Farley!

I promise I will post soon. BlogLovin

I made the switch to Bloglovin. And I am loving it! Im going to admit I don't think that I ever really used google reader like you all did... There was just a feed that showed up under where I go to post.
Anyway I will o my best to post on Monday. Tomorrow I am headed to the middle of nowhere WA to meet my new nephew. He is ADORABLE. I can't wait to get baby snuggles. Coming home Sunday evening so depending on how tired I am I will post.
I have been reading a LOT of blogs and you all have inspired me to get off the couch and get something done. Well I might stay on the couch with my computer. But at least I will be doing something.

Please follow me on Bloglovin! I haven't figured out the whole button thing yet. Hopefully in Monday/Sunday's post.
