To say that this has been a whirlwind summer would be an understatement.
In between family vacations, road trips, settling into a new routine, preparing a new classroom, and starting to actually teach a new grade in a new school….well, one could say that I’ve had little time or energy for cooking, much less blogging!
However, things have begun to settle into somewhat of a routine. Life in 2nd grade is worlds away from life as a 3rd grade teacher, but I’m finding that some aspects are quite wonderful (like the fact that we’ve spent three weeks exploring butterflies!). I’ve started a part time job at my family’s wild game processing plant and connected with a wonderful family to occasionally babysit for. I also got a new (to me) car!!! The best thing though, is that I’ve found a church and a few wonderful people that have welcomed me wholeheartedly into their lives!
I love having a plan, a routine. It gives me time for the things I love to do without making me stressed out. That’s the main reason I’m excited for fall, because I’ll once again have the opportunity to work in the kitchen (with a purpose!) and blog about what I’m doing in there! I’m back in the game folks, and I’m excited to share this beautiful season with all of you. 🙂
