Happy December to you all! I want to start off by saying that I am ready for the beginning of 2012 to get here! This first part of the school year has been exciting, crazy, busy, exhausting, etc. If you are already a follower then you know that I started fourth grade this year, after teaching four years of second grade. I have learned so much thus far from my students and my coworkers. I have made some amazing new friends, who I am proud to call my fourth grade team. I have so many exciting things to update you all on but I will spread it out over my next couple of posts.
Just last week I was able to spend time with some of my new fabulous friends outside of school. I don't want to say they are "new" friends per say, but now that I spend everyday with them in our school building (upper grades are in a different building), I have gotten to know them a lot better and I have loved every second of it. Not only have I made these amazing friendships but I have learned a lot about myself in the past five months working together.
My co-workers and I went to a Mixed Media Class at the Wine Palette here in N.C. We wanted to stretch ourselves and do something outside of the box. We all claim we are not artistic but, I think secretly we all really wanted to do some amazing art pieces. A parents at our school was hosting the event and we went to support her and of course to have fun!
Here are a couple of photos from the event...

The event was planned from 7-9 and I didn't get home until 10:30ish. We had a blast enjoying wine, snacks, and each others company. I am thrilled beyond belief that I have gotten to know such amazing people in just a couple short months. I am looking forward to many other outings with these ladies and getting to know them even better as the school year rolls on.
