MIA and Overwhelmed

It has been almost 2 months since I've blogged.  My question to all you (if I have any followers left) is - how do you all find the time to do school stuff, be a mom, and a blogger?  I stay at school until 5ish, come home to cook dinner and help my youngest with homework, then I sit down to grade papers and do other things to get ready for the next day.  It seems that I am never going to get ahead...ugh!

This week is a three day week for me!  FALL BREAK is only 2 days, but it is better than none.  I really need a few days off!  Since it a short week, we are not doing our normal weekly reading story and activities.  I am really excited because I have several fun things planned to do this week on bats.  This includes reading Stellaluna and Bats by Gail Gibbons.  I will try to remember to take pictures this week and post them on here. 

This past week at school, a local farm came to school and put on a short program about the making of their ice cream and what it was like to work on the farm.  They even brought a calf.  The kids adored it.  The best part at the end of the program, they gave each student a mini ice cream cone and a glass of the best chocolate milk ever!  I was one happy teacher because they gave me a half-gallon.  If you are ever in Knoxville, TN in October, you must check out Cruze Farms!  Here are some pictures from the program.

Have a great week!

New follower here! I definitely feel you on the challenge in finding balance between work, home, and blogging. For me, it helps to try to plan out my posts over the weekend so I have an idea of what I want to post during the week. If I can I also try to schedule my weekday posts since I know how hard it is to actually write them during the week.
