OCTOBER Already!!!

Hello Hello! I feel like I have not blogged in forever! The first month of school has been CRAZY! I have 24 1st graders...I am grade level chair in charge of 3 brand new teachers and 2 vets. We have a new computer program for grading and attendance that is still a mess! And Monday we get a new 1st grade teacher...each of us are loosing 2-4 students and having a new prep schedule. Just when I thought we were set in our routines....they go and change it all up again!! AHHHHH

Any is my October Currently!


Listening...catch up on college football news! Sports Center! I LOVE Saturdays in the fall! College football is my fav!!

LOVING...that we are not having highs in the 80s here! Yep 80s. Still a bit warm during the day but the mornings and nights are in the 60s. It smells and feels like fall. 

Thinking...That I am going to be so sad when they pick the 2-3 students in my class that are going to move to a new class. I literally love all my students. I have no behavior problems or trouble makers...they are all so smart and so hard working. I literally may cry! :( catch up! This new computer program for attendance and grading is a PAIN! We finally got it almost working and now they are going to mess with it again. Plus add a new teacher to our mix that I will have to help mentor. How do you all do it? How do you have time to blog, create things, teach, eat, sleep, workout and have a life. Not mention those of you who have children too!! Yeeesh! I get caught up on something or try to balance things out and then I loose something else. 

Needing...some down time. I just want to be able to lay on the couch and snuggle with my sweetie. We are both so busy right now that I feel like we never have a chance. My DVR is starting to get a lot of stuff on it. It is waiting for us to have some free time. Between school...kickball...people visiting....working ....drums...we have NO time to just hang out. 

TREAT! I want to make some brownies!
