Five Posts you may have missed

 School has started, things are hectic, and I've not been posting.  But you can still hang out here at my blog.  Here are five posts that are relevant to my life this week. 

I posted about my daughter moving to a toddler bed.  I was so excited by how well the transition was going.  I made the routine charts (see above) and she was following them so well-- especially the Night Night!

Well, then school started and she started going to daycare 5 days a week.  You would think she would be tired and sleep better but she just gets loopy and refuses to go to sleep-- we do the night chart and then she stays up for an hour or two MORE!  This makes the morning really difficult.  Any negativity in this post is probably a result of lack of sleep.  Any ideas to help? 

I posted Monday about some gifts that I have given lately.  I mentioned that I share an office with a ridiculous number of people.  Wow!  That's changed my work life.  I'm sure it will get better once we have a routine but I feel like I have no space to just be. 

I have 5 goals that I'm working on this month.  I have FOUR days until September.  I hope I make at least one goal!  

I have been busy getting to know the students in 4th grade.  I think I was more than optimistic when I wrote this post this summer.  It's been a lot of testing and very little getting to know the kids.  I do know the names of all the 4th grade students.

Although this post was about other issues, I think I need to constantly remind myself of the above verse.  I may feel like I can't carry on but I can.  I will forge on, looking forward to our city in heaven, which is yet to come. 

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday


  1. Good luck with the nighttime routine. Hope it gets better!
    I love that verse! Thanks for sharing,
    Sarah :)

  2. Hi there. I have a friend who is an ELL teacher and she feels the same. The testing is just insane. She wants her own classroom SUPER bad- like she may leave the district- just so she has a group of kids to call her own. I will pass on that post. Kathleen Kidpeople Classroom
