Hooray! Hooray! It's An Exciting Day!

Welcome to Spreading Joy One Giggle At A Time!
I am so glad that you are here!
This is my very first OFFICIAL post....are you ready???
  The picture above is my friend Constance and I taking a trip down the "rolly" slide on our field trip last year. I chose it because our faces represent how I feel about beginning my journey as a blogger...excited, thrilled, invigorated, and TERRIFIED!!!!
  • I am EXCITED because this has been a dream of mine for many years now, and with the guidance and support of some very special friends and colleagues it is finally coming true!
  • I am THRILLED because I can now share all this great "STUFF" that I have been storing in my head for so many years now!!!! Maybe I will actually be able to think clearer once I can get it all out of there, you think?
  • I am INVIGORATED because in my quest to begin this journey I have met so many other educators who also LOVE WHAT THEY DO!!!! It has been such a blessing to be able to share ideas, troubleshoot, and learn from others who are also passionate about the teaching profession.
  • I am TERRIFIED because blogging is the UNKNOWN to me and as with any unknown, fear sneaks up on you...but I also know that my new blogging friends have my back and won't let me drown in the blogging unknown!
     I suppose I should give you some background information about me, so you don't think I just spend my days riding "rolly" slides with Constance.

     My oldest son is a junior in high school, and just went to his first prom. (He would like to know if I am going to ask him EVERY day for the rest of his life if they had a good time....the answer is YES!) My youngest son is in seventh grade and spends his free time playing baseball.

     I have been teaching first grade for over 20 years in the same district, and I absolutely love my firsties!
