Monthly Wrap-Up – April 2018

monthlywrapup

I’m so sorry that this post is late! I just finished up my second semester of college and wow! I’ve never been so busy and stressed out in my entire life. I’m so glad to be finished for now. I’ll be taking a couple of classes this summer but it will be a much lighter course load than I have been taking. Then I’m back full steam in the fall.

April was just insane. I didn’t feel like I had time to do anything but school work. I had my last major English paper due and several big projects and assignments for my Early Childhood classes. April was also the end of my Practicum. I was so sad to leave the children. I wish I could have stayed with them longer. I’m really grateful for this experience though – being in an actual classroom and working with teachers and the children was amazing. I’ll get to do it again (for way more hours) next spring when I take my Capstone class. I’ve been thinking about what age group I want to work with next time. I worked with the 3 year olds this time, so I’m hoping to get into an infant or older one-year-olds classroom for Capstone.

I’ve been struggling with Chris and Logan lately. I don’t know where they have picked up this awful attitude, but I’m about done with it. They aren’t even teenagers yet. I don’t know how I’m going to handle it when they reach that teenager stage. It seems like they’re going through it now! Sheesh! lol

I didn’t read very much in April. I’m hoping to get some major reading done during my 3 week break before summer classes begin. I just need to get my reading mojo back! 🙂

      1. I would, you get a bit of background information there. I think you could easily read the second without. But a lot does happen in the first.

  1. It’s hard to juggle being a mom and going to school. At some point you will look back and wonder how you did it. I got my master’s while I was teaching and my children were Early Childhood ages. It was hard, but I am thankful for all of those experiences. You can do it! BTW, my personal reading life suffered. Not enough time and too much professional reading. I am retired now and making up for lost time!
