It's been WAAAY too long!

        Hello again :)  I know it has been way too long.  Things have been so crazy busy.  I have been able to keep up with my blog stalking but not the blog writing.
        Today I have lots a news!
        First, I teach in Florida and we got our FCAT (our state test) scores yesterday and I am happy.  This has been a long challenging year but my kids have worked really hard!  I just hope they know how very proud of them I am!!!
        Next, we got our assignments for next year and I am looping to fourth grade with my class.  This is sure to be fun, exciting, and probably a little scary.  At least I am going with my kiddos from this year.  I love writing, it's my FAVORITE of all the subjects and we get to take a state writing test in fourth grade (like my phrasing-it's all about the positive spin).  This means that I will be on the look out for great 4th grade blogs, websites, resources, etc... so if you have any ideas PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE send them my way!  I'll be your best friend :)
        Last but most certainly NOT LEAST!  Bill and I got some very exciting family building news yesterday.  We will be celebrating our ninth wedding anniversary in a couple of weeks and have not yet been blessed with kids.  This has been a personal struggle for me off and on over the years.  I don't know about your school but mine is practically a baby factory.  I have been to 31 baby showers in the past six years alone.  Sorry, I digress . . . anyway we have been exploring some options that we are prayerfully hopeful will be God's plan for our lives.  I will be sure to keep you posted.
        Thanks so much for letting me share all of my news.  I hope that everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!!! 


  1. I am SOOOOOOO excited that you are looping up to fourth grade. I think you are a wonderful teacher and Kasey ADORES you! Maybe we'll be neighbors! :-)

  2. Thank you so much for your kind words! My sincerest apologies for taking so long to see and respond to your sweet comment. I am very excited about spending another year with Kasey and her classmates-after a relaxing summer that is :)

  3. Wow Nicole! There is so much going on. First, I'm so excited that you are going to 4th. You will LOVE it. It is such a fun age. We can swap ideas all summer. Sounds like your scores came back positively! Way to go. Keep us posted on the baby news. I completely understand the multitude of baby showers. You should see my facebook feed...all baby. My thoughts are with you and your husband. Hoping for good news!! -Amanda
