Happy Vacation and New Year’s Resolutions!
30 Dec, 2012. 12 Comments. A Day In First Grade, December, First Grade, First Grade Holidays, Holidays, Kindergarten Holidays, Preschool Holidays, Uncategorized. Posted By: Kristen Smith

Hello everyone,

I hope that you are having a RELAXING and wonderful winter break! I also hope that you had a very Merry Christmas. I have been super busy as I just got a PUPPY!! His name is Koda and he is the newest love of my life. He is an 11 week old yorkie and I have fallen head over heels in love with this little guy.
He normally is going at about a million miles a minute and LOVES bebopping from one toy to another.
Occasionally he falls asleep so I can get some work done!
It sure is tricky to watch a puppy and work at the same time. However, for the sake of my carpets, I have been paying MUCH more attention to Koda than I have to my work!! 
I am linking up with Jen over at The Teachers’ Cauldron for a fun NewYear’s Resolution linky party. 
Okay so my New Year’s Resolutions are:
(personal goal)
I would like to do two things a month to bless someone else. I love the “random acts of kindness” that people do during the month of December but I want this to overflow into every month in my life. Whether it be a card, a home cooked goodie, or watching a friend’s children for free, I would like to make sure I do this at least twice a month.
and my blogging goal
 is to blog twice a week. I also want to get better at commenting on the blogs that I read and encouraging my blogging friends.
Hopefully I will be able to accomplish these goals!
I hope you are all having a great day and I hope to hear from some of you! What are your resolutions? If you don’t have a blog, comment here! If you do have a blog, link up!! 
Kristen :)

  1. I’m here!!!! You had to have known I’d be right over to look at that sweet baby! He is going to make your life so exciting. Your resolutions are very selfless, and I have no doubt that you will keep them! I’m so glad that you and I have connected and I wish you nothing but good health and happiness in 2013! Please keep Koda a smooch from Aunt Lori! Thanks!

  8. I love your random act of kindness goal! I want to go back to my blog and change one of mine to that too! I also noticed your comment to another blogger about the resolution of running again so I have to go back and add that one as well! I follow you on tpt but now I am following your blog also! I’m the one that you added the numbers to 120 for in your Get Your Students Moving pack! Thanks again for doing that!! I recently started my own blog and would love for you to stop by and check it out and follow me if it interests you!
