LISTENING: Like I said, I’m listening. But I’m wishing it was Grey’s Anatomy, because the opener last week was someone’s idea of a bad joke! I am counting on tomorrow night’s episode to make up for it.
LOVING: October means Halloween is right around the corner and I LOVE HALLOWEEN!! It’s my favorite Holiday to celebrate in school too! (followed closely by St. Patrick’s Day) But this week I was finally able to take my boot off my broken foot- after being a slave to it for the past 2 1/2 months. You should have heard my kids screaming and cheering for me when I greeted them at the door boot free. Another teacher perk- I’ve always got my own personal fan club!
THINKING: Oh. My. Word. Switches schools, teaching a combo class, and all new curriculum has been kicking my butt!! It’s like a constant state of treading water. The last time I felt like this was my first year teaching. Whew!
WANTING: The more bloggers I see sharing all the cool ways they are using iPads in their class the more I wish someone might just kindly drop a few on my stoop. Not holding my breath on it though…
NEEDING: Does anyone else have flat feet frustrations!? I have orthodic insoles but they don’t fit in cute little flats. The only fit into sneakers. So finding shoes that are flat & comfortable is HARD. Throw cute in the mix, and it’s dang near impossible!!
BOOK: I read alot this summer. Right about now the only reading I do is too my kids or curriculum and Common Core Standards. It’s not exactly leisurely reading. I miss summer days by the pool! However I am excited to check out The Spookely Square Pumpkin which is a newbie to my October read aloud list this year.
Finding shoes. Yep. As I went flying after tripping over a student sitting on the carpet waiting for daycare to pick her up I thought to myself… "I need new shoes." Good luck! And I bet it does feel good to get the boot off!
Do you know, I've heard of it but never read The Square Pumpkin. Totally also check out Creepy Carrots. HILARIOUS. A hit today.
I am right there with you wanting some Ipads for my classroom! Oh the possibilities! 🙂
Love your adorable blog!

I just switched, too and I've worked almost twice as hard getting situated in 2nd now!! You're not alone!!
And that's awesome about that I-pads in the classroom. I'm sure your kids LOVE it!

Found you on Farley's Currently. I've been hearing all Spookley but I can't find it (unless I want to pay through the nose on Amazon) 🙁 Congrats on getting rid of your boot! Teaching with broken bones is not easy!
I'm your newest follower! Stop over anytime!
Hippo Hooray for Second Grade!
Yay, you are at 500 now!
Oh my goodness I feel your pain – I HATE the boot. I had one 2 years ago and my leg still isnt' quite the same for running…although I still go out there. :O)
Happy for you to get that things off…I had a cast for 5 weeks and a boot for 3.
