It seems like only a little while ago that I was worrying I wasn’t going to have enough work. Since then, God has provided abundantly! Starting today, I have a full-time teaching block that goes for six weeks!
It’s all very exciting, and a little scary too. I haven’t worked full-time on a class since 2015, and that was only for four weeks – so, the workload is a just little daunting. I’ll have my own class and my own units of work to plan. The class is made up of fifteen Year 2-Year 5 kids, but it feels more like teaching at a Kindergarten level. But they’re a really lovely group of kids and I think I’ll have a lot of fun.
So…this means I probably won’t won’t have much time at all for my blog. I’d prefer not to drop off from blogging completely, so I’ve got a few post ideas lined up for the coming weeks. But, to be honest, I have no idea how busy I’m going to be and how I’m going to manage the workload. So, I can’t make any promises about regular posting. But I can tell you this, I will definitely be back once my full-time block is over.
In the eight months I’ve been blogging, I’ve liked to keep organised, with a little monthly planner and scheduled posting days. I hate the thought of not having enough time for blogging and letting it go for these next weeks. But, one thing I’ve learned through my months of blogging is that I don’t have to have it all together. My favourite bloggers aren’t the ones that present a perfect life and post like clockwork. My favourites are the ones who are honest about their lives; messy, irregular and imperfect as they may be.
It’s going to be a busy time, possibly stretching me beyond what I’m comfortable with. You might not hear from me for a little while, but I will be back – with a whole lot of stories to tell!
