At the moment time seems to be something I am always searching for. As expected, my moments are taken up with planning and organising my new class. As I have not taught grade 2s before, I need to familiarise myself with the curriculum and plan activities for the children. In addition, I am learning how to run two curriculums concurrently. Time is also spent making up parent contact lists and setting assessment folders for the children.
At the moment my life is taken up with the class I am teaching this year and the result is that I have no time to blog (and to be honest, my fatigue has also wiped away my inspiration for ideas). For the next little while – until I get on my feet – my blog posts and visits to blogs will be sporadic at best. Soon I will see you more frequently but until then, thank you for your patience.

Good day to everyone,
My assignment submitted and my course completed, my mind needed a rest – and I took it for a couple of weeks. I read a few books, crocheted a little and began watching Grey’s Anatomy on Netflix (no, I had not watched it before). The rest has done me good and I am now mentally ready to write again. I think the climbing temperatures also have contributed to my well-being – I love standing outside with the sun warming my face sans the winter gear that we have been wearing for the past months.
I will slowly get back into my daily blogging and will begin with a few catch-up posts that I had planned before my break. It will be good to communicate with you all again and I look forward to catching up.
Enjoy the rest of your day and keep smiling
As you know, I am currently following a course to improve my teaching of French as a Second Language. I have enjoyed the sessions so far and have managed thus far to keep up with blogging. Deadlines are now looming, however, and I find myself switching on my computer to work on my assignment and presentation. In order to create more time to work on the deadlines, I have decided to take a blogging break until my course is done at the end of March, or until I have completed the work I need to do.
I shall miss the writing and the communication I have with you. Unfortunately, there are only so many hours in the day.
Your fellow blogger,
The journey has been completed and I am now home sleeping in my own bed and eating food that my husband and I have prepared. We saw family members that we had not seen in years. We laughed, we cried, we visited sights with our children. Now we are back home and getting over jet lag (the 23 hour journey home was tiring and did not allow for much sleep!) and adjusting to the time difference. We are recharging our energy levels before school begins and we slip into our everyday routine. I will return to one of the things I missed most while I was away: blogging and everything that comes with this activity. Writing, sharing, reading, and communicating. I have many photos and experiences to share with you – and my fingers are itching to type the words.
Until later, Colline.
