September Currently

Time to link up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for the September Currently linky.

I don't often have to do the laundry during school, because my husband takes care of it (love), but he has to work today and some sheets just need to be washed. Listening to either son play the piano is a great way to spend time (I wish they'd play longer than the required time).

This day reminds me of summer, before I started working everyday getting my classroom and curriculum ready for the beginning of school. I got up. Watched GMA. Crafted a bit. The boys are also doing what they want. Lovely.

While surfing (blog surfing of course) this morning I found an organizational blog with ideas for freezer breakfasts. Wonder if I can make myself make some today. Find the post here.

I don't like the calendar arrangement in my classroom. I really need to go fix it and take down August and put up September. By Wednesday because tomorrow is an inservice day.

Favorites: I love composition notebooks. I decorated a new one today in preparation for a 2-day seminar that I will attend on Thursday and Friday about MTSS. Perhaps a lovely notebook will help me miss my first graders less. When I went to school on Saturday I rearranged. Pictures soon perhaps? If I remember. Dark chocolate, especially Dove. Certainly a great end to a quick lunch. Need to buy some more this weekend.

Happy Laobr Day everyone!

  1. Dove dark chocolate! Oh, my! Now after reading this, I must have some! I wonder if I can go to the store in my pajamas. ;)

  2. I agree! A day like this every month would be fabulous! =)

  3. I would love to see how your freezer breakfasts turn out. Breakfast is a meal we struggle with, because we are usually rushing.

  4. Dark chocolate has kept me from many poor behaviour choices! I always keep a stash in my desk for "emergencies".

  5. Alyce,
    I'm so glad to meet you through the Currently. Your needing to change the calendar, reminded me that I too need to do mine. I thought about it before leaving on Friday, but had too many other things to do. Top of my to do list when I get back tomorrow. I'm looking to decorate my composition books, as well. I'm thinking about just buying some pattern duck tape and putting it on the spine. I'm also going to hot glue a ribbon to use as a bookmark and put an envelope for storing small items. I just enlisted some volunteer mommies, so this would be a great project for them. :) Chocolate is my favorite and I need to get my stash ready for those pick me ups. Haven't done that yet.

  7. This family fell back into our lazy summer routine quickly! Loving having a day off after the first week of school. Say your about me-I was born in Larned, KS, but I grew up in Louisiana. We went back every summer though to visit my grandparents.

  8. I have never had Dove chocolate. Might need to try some now! Thanks for the Friday Five idea. I think I will start that this week as I start back to school tomorrow!

  9. Love Dove chocolate and composition notebooks! Glad I found your blog, looking forward to reading more!
