Post-a-Day Blog Challenge

         I have been very unmotivated to blog,  I'm really not sure why but I just haven't been able to make myself post (even about ideas that I'd like to share).  I haven't even been very good about following the blogs that I love which has been really frustrating when I do spend some time on the internet and see the thoughtful posts I've missed. Today I did check out a few of my favorite bloggers and saw that Sandi from Rubberboots and Elf Shoes has taken the #kinderchat 2014 January Post-a-Day Blog Challenge.  31 prompts in 31 days. 31 posts seems rather ambitious but I think it might be good for me to give it a try. Being reflective about my teaching and life has to be good for me. Right?

Wordless Wednesday: A photo to represent 2013 

This is a photo that my husband and I took after we dropped our youngest off at college.  In truth I was pretty sad about the end of my role as "live in Mom" for my four kids. However, this photo sort of represents all the transitions that happened in 2013.  It turns out Ed and I really like each other and we are enjoying our empty nest (and LOVING any time at home or on the road that we get to spend with the kids:)

  2. Love that picture of you and your husband. Having an empty nest is a happy/sad transition.
    Happy New Year!
