I wasn't planning to write a word of the year post. But this afternoon, as I was hanging up a sign I made a couple of weeks ago (see post), it occurred to me that "bloom" is really my word at the moment. I have always loved to watch my young students "bloom." Lately, I have decided to put as much effort into my home as I do in my classroom. I have enjoyed seeing things bloom around my house, as I have made it a priority.

Even the rug I chose for my entry way has "blooms."
When a flower blooms, it shows everyone the best it has to offer. That's what I want to do this year.
