Wrapping up the School Year

As the end of one school year is coming to an end, I can't help but be extremely relieved. What a year! Oh my, this year has been awesome and awful all rolled into one. Miss Squeakers had the most amazing teacher we have ever to experience, while The Aggravator had one of the worst we have ever experienced. I have a firm belief that with teaching, you can not do it for a paycheck, it has to be for the love. This lady? I am not sure why she is there other then to show daily disdain for children. Not just mine, nearly every single one of them. Long year. On flip side, I am extremely sad to see Miss Squeakers lose her teacher, that man is amazing. Madame Emotions had a great year, making mostly all A's this year and is off to 7th grade next year! 7th grade??? That sentence takes my breathe away. She's taking all AP classes next year, I am very nervous and excited for her. The child who is dyslexic has risen above her challenges and is doing amazing!

My own schooling is done and what a semester it was, tough and long. Bleh. I made my first C this semester and wanted to cry when I saw it. Yet, I need to be happy I passed at all, that class kicked my butt. Many a days of studying for hours, praying I would just pass the test.

I have not had the time to post or the desire to lately and I was trying to figure out why. I think I have discovered that while I was short on time I wanted to spend every minute I could with my family. Also, my life has changed so dramatically in this past year that I am a different person, my feel for my blog will be different if I do post. I have been hesitant to come back, I forgot that I started this blog for myself. I didn't start it for the followers, while I absolutely love getting that ding of the email, saying I have a message, I also forgot to write what I wanted and not what I thought would be funny or bring followers. I believe that I have to write what I feel and love, if I get the followers from that, then I am super excited! I love the communication in the blog world.

As I will always post on my children, I also plan on posting about myself, my changes, and the continue effort to keep changing into the person that I know God wants me to be. Life has turned into a different one for us and I love the changes. I love that God has changed our family as a whole, I have been incredibly blessed. Saying all that to also say that it's been hard, life has still had it's suck moments where your head is spinning with the why. The ups and downs, the mostly downs, but dealing with those with God in our life. It's been an interesting to say the least!

I hope you join me on our adventure.

Great post! It's so true that you have to write for yourself, not others. Write with passion and the followers will love it!

I think this is the best philosophy to have when blog writing!
