I am so excited for me to get to know so new bloggers and for followers to get to know me. Here goes:

I teach Kindergarten on an Army post at Fort Campbell, KY. I have taught here for the past 5 years. I taught Kindergarten for the past 2 years and Pre-K before that. Before I began teaching on post, I taught Pre-K in the county for 3 years. I loved teaching Pre-K and actually cried when I found out I was being moved to Kindergarten. Now I think Kindergarten is my favorite grade. I love those little ones :)

I have a 6th grader!!!!!! My daughter graduated 5th grade on Friday so I know officially have a middle schooler. I'm not ready to admit it because she is growing up so fast but I know she will do amazing things in middle school next year. I am also married to an amazing man that just became an officer in the Army. He was currently enlisted for the past 10 years and graduated college last month and is now an Army officer. I am so proud of all of his hard work and what he has accomplished!

I watch anything on my DVR. I never have time to watch shows when they actually come on and I hate sitting and waiting on commercials so we just DVR everything. Me and my daughter are currently addicted to a lot of reality shows like American Idol, America's Got Talent, Dancing with the Stars, So You Think You Can Dance, and Celebrity Wife Swap. We also love watching Devious Maids together but shhhh don't tell anyone since it's not really "kid appropriate" but we love it and it's our bonding time :)

I listen to mostly top 40 and my daughter can sing along to almost every song. My absolutely favorite music is 90s though. Who can't resist a little Backstreet or Christina :) 

I read mostly magazines during my short 15 minutes of peace I have to myself. But I am diving into some Daily 5 reading this summer. We started Daily 5 in my classroom last Spring and my kids loved it and grew so much and I can't wait to start it with my new Kinders in August.

I do everything! My husband is currently in flight school for the next year so it is just me and my daughter at our house holding down the fort so that leaves me with doing everything, lol. I cook, clean, work, take my daughter to cheer and dance, and everything else that needs to be done. It gets very busy but I wouldn't change it for the world.

Thanks for stopping by to get to know me a little better. I can't wait to "meet" some new friends!
