Happy April! Are you ready for a day of tricks? I have a love/hate relationship with this day. I love playing tricks on people, but don’t like being tricked. And to be honest, some of the first grade “tricks” can be so goofy, that my laugh turns kind of fake by the end of the day. I have seen some fun ideas that I may pull on my kiddoes today! In the meantime, I am linking up with Farley for the monthly currently.
Listening- I just love mornings before anyone else is up. I can watch what I want to watch and drink my coffee peacefully. That is what I am doing at the moment.
Loving- I love the spring decor in the stores and catalogs right now. The colors are so fun and it motivates me to get outside. Now if only our weather would cooperate.
Thinking- Today is April Fool’s Day. I have read about some fun ides, but some of the things I want to do would require me to go to the grocery store before school starts. I’ll let you know if that happens. My favorite idea I have seen is the brownies or brown “e’s” . I want to hand out some brown colored e’s, but then in the end give them each a brownie bite. This is why I need to go to the store this morning. I don’t have brownies handy at the moment.
Wanting- Summer break. This always happens after spring break. I get a taste of what life will be like with no schedule and them BAM! Spring break os over! So at least with summer, I can have a little longer than a week of no schedule.
Needing- I am feeling a little unorganized at the moment and I feel a little spring cleaning/purging may help. Maybe this weekend?
Hours and Last Day- My last day is June 5th (that would be 45 school days left, but who’s counting?).
The kids come to school Monday-Thursday 8:10-2:10 and Fridays 8:10-12:50. The kids leave at those times, but we are contracted to stay until 3:15. We use that time for collaboration/prep/meetings, etc.
Okay, the house is beginning to wake up. Time to motivate, let’s get through this day and drop that number down to 44. Cheers!
