Life Lately...

You'll have to excuse the dust around here, it has totally been way too long. 

I am excited to say that I am happy and back for good with some very exciting news! 

First things first, the original reason for my absence was that I got promoted at work! I started off at my company as a two year old teacher which I adored but like most people, I wanted more. So I worked for it. I went back to school to get my pre-kindergarten certifications and then back again to get my directors certifications. I was first promoted to a lead VPK teacher and then shortly after to the Co-Director of our whole center which holds 191 children. With both of these changes, came a bit of a bigger work load with lesson plans and such so that took the highest priority. 

Secondly and the more exciting announcement is that...

Baby Ricker is on the way! 
Due June 2017

On top of the work shennanys, I was dead freaking tired and would literally come home at 530 and crash until my alarm went off the next morning-if you know me at all, you will know that that is totally not me. If you follow me of any form of social media, you have probably already heard this but, if not, this little bundle of joy growing in my tummy is the main cause of the radio silence. 

Now that I am a little less tired and have a handle on the work side of things, I am ready to bring my little piece of the internet back to life and I do hope you will enjoy this new journey I will be sharing!
