So I’ve been absent…. a lot! Life has gotten crazy!

First, we found out at the end of last school year that we are expecting our third child! I have two boys (now 5 and 8) and now we are expecting a little girl in February. As a result I spent the entire summer sick in bed.

I also found out just a couple of weeks before the school year began that I Was going to be transferred to a new school (still first grade). I am really enjoying all of the new learning opportunities that come with being a part of a new team, and they are beyond supportive. I also miss my old team, classroom, and routines. It’s been very busy just trying to keep up with the school stuff, especially with my lower energy level.

My youngest son also has terrible asthma, which has been exacerbated by the shared germs of a 22 new kindergarten friends in his class.

So … it’s been a wild start!

I’ve also been pouting a bit since the TPT algorithm change, which totally cut my sales about in 1/3 of what they had been previously, so instead of creating new things to post, I’ve been trying to research and figure out how to make my products more searchable to the right audience!

I am ready now to begin sharing about some of the fun that comes with the first months of school, so stay tuned for more to come!
