It's beginning to feel a lot like . . . FALL!!! Yay :)
And, it's that time again to link up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade.
Listening . . .
It's election time, so I'm listening to the debates. I think it's so important for all of us to get and stay informed about what is going on. My school is doing a mock election this year with the whole school & I always love this! When I did my student teaching in 2000, my portfolio unit was on the election & it got me so interested in the views of children when it came to voting & the presidency. That was in 5th grade (can you believe I student taught in 5th? YIKES!) & now that I'm in first, it's always so funny to hear what the kids have to say. If only their parents knew all the things that come out of their little mouths . ..
Loving . . .
That I only have 2 days . . . that's 16 hours (not that I am counting or anything) until our FALL BREAK!! I just L.O.V.E our calendar this year.
We have a whole week off next week . . . then 6 weeks in school . . .
then a whole week off for Thanksgiving . . . then 4 weeks of school . . .
then two weeks off for Christmas . . . then 6 weeks of school . . .
then a whole week off for Winter Break . . . then 6 weeks of school. . .
then a whole week off for Spring Break . . . then 7 weeks of school . . .
Isn't that awesome???
Thinking . . .
I am loving this weather. Here in GA, we don't get a lot of fall, to be honest. We got A LOT of summer, and a little bit of winter. I am just loving going to recess without sweating a bucket before I have to teach the rest of the day & sitting outside and actually enjoying being out there. And I can't wait for cute sweaters, scarves, boots, and such. And the colors of fall?? Gorgeous!
Wanting . . .
Leopard print running shoes. Look at these things!!!
I should point out I don't run. I SHOULD run. I NEED to run. But I don't run. You know those stickers you see on runners cars with the marathon time numbers on them? I'm jealous of their tenacity, determination and dedication to it. But, I'm a chubber, and this is my sticker . . .
More hours in the day. Maybe an assistant??? 'Nuff said.
Book . . .
Head on over to Farley's blog & link up. I just love reading these every month!!
Happy Wednesday :)
