Things I miss about teaching (in no particular order)

1. Having a reason to get dressed up.
2. Reading interesting historical stories and then telling my students about them.
3. Watching all the teenage drama unfold.
4. The Starbucks gift cards at Christmas.
5. Planning a knock-out observation lesson.
6. My co-workers (well, some of them).
7. When it snowed, I got the day off.

Ellery at 2 months

I really don't want to abandon the blogging world. Having a newborn at Christmastime kept me really busy but I am hoping I'll catch up in the next couple of weeks. Then I can post more often and visit your blogs. I really do miss reading them. I love my baby girl and am so glad to be able to spend so much time watching her develop. But I didn't realilze how isolating it would be. I still haven't found a good rhythm that would allow me to to get out during the day with her much. And of course the Denver weather does not allow going on walks right now.

Anyway, I hope to catch up with everyone soon. Until then, more pictures will have to suffice (sigh).
