  1. I had looked at the Reading Bingo challenge for a while and finally decided to sign up. I never would have found the Story Sprites challenge without you posting it and it looks like so much fun. So, of course, I had to sign up for it too. Hope you are having a good time back at college!

  2. Wow, you do have a busy semester! Make sure to get some sleep in there somewhere and remember to breathe. I had 21 hours one of my semesters senior year and had work study and it was really stressful. My boss gave me the best advice, to take 15 minutes at the end of each day to focus on something other than work and school. It helped me to calm down and feel a little less stressed. You will make it through this and be an awesome teacher!
