Happy New Year and Currently Jan.

I'd like to begin this post by wishing you and yours a very happy new year! 

While 2012 brought some really great things, like our new house, blogging and TpT, it also brought some pretty big lows for my family...so we are welcoming 2013 with open arms at our house! 

This year, I'm hoping to be a bit more focused in my blog posts.  For example, sharing recaps of units or focused practice of skills.  So posts might be more scattered here in there but I hope they will provide you with lots of ideas to implement in your own classroom. My posts might be scattered here and there, which is why I would LOVE to have you follow me on Facebook too.  You can check out Fourth and Ten's page {here}.   I plan on posting more day to day things on Fourth and Ten's Facebook page

My precious friend Farley also has January's Currently up! So excited to join in the party since my NYE's celebration includes vegging on the couch with my hubs, pups, and old school SNL (think early 2000s I LOVE Cheri Oteri and Will Ferrell) on Netflix Streaming.  

My OLW for this year is BALANCE.  I have a horrible habit of spreading myself so thin, causing myself to feel stressed and overwhelmed.  I hope to juggle the joys of teaching, blogging, product creating and coaching with the blessings of being a wife, daughter, granddaughter, friend and dog mom a little better this year. :)  Wish me luck!

  1. Lisa, I'm seeing that there are sooo many people staying in - this is new to me, as I thought I was always the only one who stayed in :) I hope that your 2013 is as great as can be and that the lows are limited (if not there at all!).

    Happy New Year!

  5. Baha! Happy New Year, sweet lady!! I wrote about iPads also. And eating sweets!! What a great word you chose. That is something I always struggle with but so important to stay sane! I am looking forward to 2013 too. It's going to be a great year!

  6. Lisa! I'm enjoying my night in as well!! Wishing we had some cookies too though! Your word is such a great reminder for me as well... definitely not easy to balance everything we do, but it must be done!

  7. Your blog is truly adorable! I am glad to have become one of your newest followers. I can completely relate with you that 2012 was great in many ways, but we had some tough lows as a family as well. Here's to 2013 being a much better year!
