I didn’t write much in the first half of 2012 as I only picked up blogging again shortly after I moved in June. It has been an exciting blogging year for me, with some of my posts featured by Daily Candy and early childhood education blogs!

HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone and I hope to blog about more kids activities this year! 🙂
