Hello everyone! I know it’s been months since my last blog post, and I apologize but I have a good reason. I’ve been taking care of these two little munchkins.
The newest one is on the right 🙂 As much as I enjoyed being home with them, it’s kind of nice to be back with adults and have conversations that extend past fruit snacks, Curious George, and Barbies. Being my second week back at work I knew I needed to blog about SOMETHING, but I don’t have any program stuff prepared…yet. So this is what you all get, a brief glace into my personal life as a mommy. I also wanted to thank the internet world for still looking at my blog while I was away, you guys are awesome! I’m glad it’s helping so many people out there and that we have such a cool way of sharing information. What the heck did librarians do 30 years ago?!
Ahhh, I just realized that I forgot to do a post last week! Dang, that resolution didn’t last very long. I intended to do it on Saturday but it was absolutely crazy that day! So here I am remembering to do it this week and hopefully I won’t forget anymore 🙂 This week began our new winter session of STs so we talked about the letter “M” this week. Mice, moose, monkeys, Mississippi, and moms. It was of course a wonderful ST with lots of smiling faces and cheerful kids. I won’t go into the details because I feel like I repeat myself so much on here since all my STs are pretty much the same but with different stories and songs. Nothing too exciting.
Seth and I are planning an Elephant & Piggie Valentine’s Day Party and we are very excited for that. We need to practice reading the books together, not sure if Elephant is a boy or girl or Piggie either. I guess they will be who we make them! Not 100% sure what is going to happen at the party but some things on my list are bingo, pop-up cards, dance party, egg toss/relay. So if any of you have some wonderful ideas, throw them my way 🙂
As for other stuff going on in the library right now I am helping with the planning of our 4th Annual Read and Run for your health 5k and 1 mile walk. It basically consists of going out and asking businesses for money, which as you can imagine is not a fun thing to do in this economy. There have been a few good leads, so hopefully they will come through. Starbucks is about the only one so far that for sure is helping us our by donating coffee. Go Starbucks! I guess they are expecting even more participants this year too since our sign ups at this point are DOUBLE what they were at this time last year. Woot! When everything is said and done I will be sure to post pics and let you all know.
I think that’s about it going on in my library world right now. Check back next week and maybe there will be something exciting happening! Oh and I have one more resolution with this blog, NO MORE SMILEY FACES. I use them entirely too much. Smiley face.
