Well, friends, we’re back. Goober is a year older (so am I, but that’s irrelevant) and he’s even more on the move than he’s ever been. Last year, I had the opportunity to take a job as a teacher in a local daycare center. I seized that opportunity and hit the ground running so fast, I kind of forgot to look back at this blog. Now, with the dreaded Covid-19 quarantine looming over us, I feel a lot more prepared than I would had I not started teaching. (I primarily teach in the 4-5 age group, but I frequently visit the younger age groups as well).

2018 is a monumental year for Guppy! This past June she finished 3rd grade at her elementary school, and will be starting 4th at the middle school in september. When we were doing our summer “purge” of clothing, to get ready for school shopping, we came across her old elementary school t-shirt, and she was torn on what to do with it. She knew she wasn’t going to wear it anymore, but was still pretty hesitant to give it away, so we came up with making this bag as a compromise! It was an easy project for her to do, and now she has a bag to carry her books to and from the library (and, let’s face it, a bunch of other junk is going to go in it, too!)
