It’s been quite a long time since I’ve blogged here. I wanted to blog regularly about different books that I’ve read. My goal for this blog was to share my personal opinions about books that I’ve read so others can decide if they would like to read some of those same books. My other goal was to help parents find books that might be good to share with their families. As a teacher and a new mother, that is my goal for this blog more than ever.
I want to share books that are fun, encouraging, uplifting, and helpful. Reading has been a passion of mine before I even started going to school. I have always loved books and reading. I hope I can pass that on to my daughter. I’m already starting her own little collection of books, and I enjoy reading to her even at eight weeks old!
Since it has been about a year since I last wrote anything here, many things have happened. I began my second year of teaching, and it was a wonderful year. I learned so much right along with my students. I also got pregnant with our first child, and she was born (three weeks early) on July 6. She brings so much joy to our lives, and we couldn’t be happier. While I absolutely love teaching and watching my students learn and grow, we made the decision that I would stay home with our sweet baby this year. It was a decision that we thought about for quite a while, but I know it was the right thing for us. Now that I am home full-time, I am caring for my little one, and I would like to start blogging again. Although I have not been writing, I have not stopped reading. I am looking forward to sharing some of the great stories that I have read over the last year as well as some cool resources for finding new things to read. I’m thankful for the journey and the opportunity to share the things I love. I invite you to join me on this reading adventure!
