I'm still here!

Well hello there blog world! It's been almost... 4 months?! Weren't any of you wondering if I'd just decided to stay in Mexico post BFF's wedding??? Good news - I didn't! I did however return after my 5 day trip to a crazy busy final month of first grade with my kiddos - honestly, who doesn't have a crazy busy last month of school? And then... once summer hit, I needed a brain break from work. Instead, I've read about 2-3 books a week, worked out, enjoyed time with my friends... and have done absolutely nothing school related whatsoever. Oh yeah... and THIS happened:

 (No idea why this keeps rotating!)

 Yep! On June 21, I got engaged to my sweet boyfriend whom I've been dating for about 3 and 1/2 years. So the rest of the summer just seems like a blur or happiness and sparkle :). Actually, this summer was a blur of weddings, wedding showers, bachelorette parties, with a graduation and moving thrown in. The moving was me, but the rest of that was in honor of wonderful friends and family. It was an amazing summer. Then last week hit and it was time to start setting up my classroom. I'm not gonna lie, moving all of my furniture back and hanging things on the wall got me more than a little excited about beginning a new school year. I hit the ground running yesterday presenting a new teacher training and am preparing for another one on Monday, so now I definitely feel like school is back in session. Wow - was that really 11 weeks off???

So in case I'm not back during the hectic week and a half that I have left before the first day of school, GOOD LUCK to all of you heading back for your first day soon and keep up the good work to those of you already back! I know we're all going to have a fantastic 2012-2013!!!
