No Pressure

I'm back.
I'm ready and willing to write again.
Apparently I took an unplanned leave of absence from the blogging world.

I've gotten really into using Facebook, which, as any of you who also use it know, is incredibly addicting. I update there frequently, and get comments on what I write, so I haven't felt the urge to blog like I used to. But I'm coming back to you, my blog.

One of the reasons is the Philly Blogger get-togethers, usually organized by Bossy and attended by lots of other local bloggers. We organizing our next get-together for November and I'm kinda feeling like a fraud if I don't start writing again.

And the other reason is the anonymous comment I just received. Wow.

So let's see, what's going on?

DH is teaching at the Middle School this year instead of the high school and loves it!

I'm teaching Pre-K instead of the two year olds and love it!

J is in Kindergarten in the mornings and loves it! [Wow, we're just such a positive family.] Things were pretty complicated for a while there since her school doesn't start until 9:00 AM and there is no bussing for Kindergarteners and I have to be at school by 8:30. We ultimately ended up paying for before school care at the community center - so frustrating when we only need it for about 45 minutes maximum each day. We had to do piece meal after school care for her since she is finished at 11:45 and I have school until 1, but at this point it's all taken care of.

A and B are both in second grade. A still has a 1:1, but has also been having lot more trouble staying focused in school and has definitely been having lots more tantrums. B was just finally diagnosed with ADD and we are working on creating a school plan for him.

And that's all I have to say for now because I have lots of work to do. It's not much, it's definitely not brilliant or inspiring or incredible writing, but that's just the way it is.

Hi - me again - would love to invite you to be friends on facebook so you can get to know a little about me (just starting it so not too much on there yet but am adding to it). But don't know how to do this as I don't know your name!

so glad the kids are doing well...J is telling me more and more about her day when I pick her up. She's soooo cute. Sorry to hear that B is ADD, but I'm sure you will get a routine down for that. FlyLady has a student control journal available - maybe a revised one would work for both boys.
