January 20, 2012

under construction.

Wow, it has been a really long time since my last post. The past six months have been pure craziness over here and it has taken me this long to finally catch up! Here is a quick recap for everyone who keeps sending me emails wondering if I have indeed fallen off the face of the earth…(close, but not quite). 

1. I moved…to another state. 

Yep, I’m no longer in Texas. This was probably one of the hardest decisions I had to make in a long, long time. The crazy thing is that my child’s new school has recess. They have three in fact, including a lunch recess. Contrary to popular belief, the students at his school are still smart. They can, indeed, play without a lesson plan.

Now, I realize that folks at the Texas state capitol are probably high-fiving one another right now, but before you get too excited, know that the push for a state wide mandatory recess is still happening. Actually, a push will be taking place everywhere. I get so many emails from parents in different states asking me how they can make things happen in their area. So many in fact, that it can get overwhelming at times. 

Because of that, this site will be getting an all new makeover and a new name. I’m actually pretty excited! I will be able to roll it out hopefully in a couple of weeks. So bear with me! 

Till then!
