Well, I'm at it again...

I started blogging about 2 years ago and absolutely fell in love! I had a little teaching blog, Burst of First, which I really kept up with. I joined the ranks of all the other first grade teachers with blogs and really enjoyed everything. Then, I was moved to teach second grade, and Burst of First, sadly, had to go.

The new school year started and I have to admit, I was super overwhelmed! Starting the year in a new grade level, with new teammates, a pilot program and the new common core curriculum was way too crazy for me. I tried my best to continue blogging and balance my personal life, but with a new blog. Here was my attempt to blog as a second grade teacher. Again, epic failure!!

With a new year starting in a day and a few hours (can you believe it?!?!?), I've decided to start a new blog, again! I've really missed blogging over the past few months and cannot wait to get back in! Although I still feel a little overwhelmed (and who doesn't?), I'm pretty sure I can do this again! It really turned in to a hobby for me, and with the NBA season finally starting up again, I'll have more time to do this since Mr. Husband will be glued to the TV!

So, here is my new year's resolution.....enjoy!


  1. Yay! You're back! I felt like it was only fitting for me to be your first comment! I changed my blog list to your new location (again). I've resolved to get back into blogging as well and posted for the 2nd time in 2012 tonight so for now I'm keeping it up.

  2. And I forgot to mention that I love the name. It's PERFECT for you and your sweet tea addiction!

  3. I am a new follower and a Texas teacher too! I would love for you to come visit me and grab LOTS of *freebies*! We are getting a visit on Monday from our Penguin on the Shelf! Come read about it!

    Sending prayers and blessings to you and the rest of your school year. I think I would freak if I was moved to a different grade level!

  4. So glad that you are blogging again!!! I cannot wait to hear more about 2nd grade! Miss you!
