How can it possibly be November already?!?
So, I'm linking up with Farley at Oh Boy Fourth Grade for the November Currently...
Listening...everyone else in my house is still asleep, and I'm trying to catch up on Bloglovin' when I should be doing other things.
Loving...that parent/teacher conferences are done! Yesterday my teaching partner and I cranked out all of our conferences together (except for two who didn't show up, and one who had to leave because we were running behind and she had to be somewhere for an appointment...I felt SO bad!). We started at 7:45am and finished at 7:30pm. It was a LOOONNGG day, but it was worth it! All of our conferences went GREAT...even the ones I was a little worried about. And the best part is, after getting to know my students' parents a little better, I love my kiddos even more! It was so amazing to sit across from parent after parent and hear from them:
1. How much they love their children
2. How much they want to support their children and their childrens' teachers
3. How they know their kids aren't perfect, and they want to be told about any problems...academic or behavior...so they can be part of the solution
4. How much they love our school
5. That they think we're doing a great job teaching their children
I KNOW that conferences are not always like this, and I feel SO blessed to be teaching in a school with so much parent support!!!
Thinking...our refrigerator is dangerously close to EMPTY and I really need to take a shower and go grocery shopping (I will in just 5 more minutes!!!). I love that my daughter has been planning our dinner menu and writing a grocery list for the past few weeks...it's a little thing, but it makes a BIG difference to me.
Needing...my husband wants to go hiking at Linville Gorge today, and we'll go, but I hate that in the back of my mind I'll be thinking about all of the things that I need to get done around here...laundry, lesson planning, etc...you know how it goes.
A yummy pin...Frozen Chocolate Chip Cookie Balls. I'm SO making these as one of my Christmas cookies. I know the link to the pin is hard to read, so just click on the pic below to access it.
I hope you're having a wonderful and relaxing weekend! Go and link up with Farley to share your November Currently!
