... treating my Stars to fun and fresh holiday pencils each month (oh Target Spot, how I love you):
... and enjoying early childhood teacher fashion, like these glasses that show just how much I love teaching and learning:
When I get home, there's lots of snuggling and cuddling and taking pictures of Tish-Tish:
(Here she is with yet another book for grad school)
... and oodles and oodles of crochet going on, which *might* have something to do with my one and only new year's resolution: to crochet one afghan per month.
Though this year has flown by in many ways, there's still so much left to do. I have a yearbook deadline around the corner, after reaching the one-hundredth day of school, my Stars are excited to be counting down to summer vacation, and graduate school assignments and professional development meetings are in multiplication mode.
But I'll be back to blogging, I promise. Kindergarten is too great an adventure to go it alone, you know? Until then, remember that you can find me on Instagram @msommerville (seriously, go check out the latest portrait that a Star drew of me; I'm thinking I need to purchase some monster hair bows now) and occasionally on Twitter @msommerville where my absence from Twitter chats is also evident but I still find some great stuff to retweet and share.
How is YOUR year going? Have any book recommendations for me? What's your non-school-related hobby?
