Happy New Year!

It's the end of 2012, and what a year it has been.  So many things took place this year, good and bad.  I struggled last school year with not really teaching much.  The first half of the year was especially tough, but then I was so blessed to find teacher blogs (it will be my one year blogoversary in 3 days).  The teacher blogging world is such an amazing place, all of you helped me get back into a good place as I finished the year.  I also saw my mom struggle with and lose the battle to Alzheimer's.  That was a tough thing, but I'm just so thankful that she is no longer suffering.  I experienced being back full time in my classroom this year, and am loving that so much!  I felt so much sadness from the tragedy at Sandy Hook.  I also had the sad experience of seeing another friend who was only 29 pass away, leaving her parents and husband.  I was privileged to meet some amazing new friends from the blogging world, and from church and school.  So as a new year starts I hope to have more times to learn and make friends and keep old ones.  May all of you have a wonderful new year as well!  Happy New Year!
