Three Things I've Learned This Summer

It's officially a month until "back to school" time. Wow - this summer flew by! I hope you had a relaxing time and made some awesome memories.
I'm linking up with Mrs. Miracle's Music Room to share three things I've learned this summer.

  1. Cherish Your Family
     My husband and I having been trying to start a family since we were married two years ago. This summer was especially difficult for personal reasons. However, it made me see who is there in my life. I am so blessed to have my mom. I couldn't have made it through the month of June without her. It should be common sense to me, but I learned to cherish my family and those around me. Someday, I hope my husband and I's dream of starting our own family can come true. When it does, I want our child to see the amazing love and support system around us.

  2. Naps Rule!
    I love sleep. I am not kidding. If I don't get 7-8 hours during the school year, I'm a mess. I also sleep until noon on the weekends. This summer, my cat and I were best friends. We had our napping schedule down so well that if my piano lessons went long, she started to droop. I'm really going to miss our kitty snuggles when school starts up again.

  3. Never Stop Learning
    In between napping, I did attend a great professional development workshop. It was all about singing games! Not only did I learn some new games, but I also reviewed some favorites with new twists. The networking and sharing is always great, too. Stay tuned for a blog post later this week on a great "Back-to-School" singing game that will appeal to your older elementary students!

What did you learn this summer?


  1. It is wonderful that you have a great support system to help you through trying times. Sending virtual hugs. Naps are also wonderful! We are definitely on a summer sleep schedule. We need to adjust soon. School starts in two weeks! EEK!

  2. Great lessons, Christine! Thanks for linking up. :)
