Hoppy Easter!

Since tomorrow is Easter, I thought I would share with you some of my sweet M's spring/Easter pictures. She wasn't too sure about this live bunny but she sure loved having her pictures taken.

As of yesterday, I am officially on Spring Break!! I hope you all have a "hoppy" Easter tomorrow!

Career Week & a Field Trip

This is Career Week at our school so we have been talking about jobs and careers all week. Today was dress-up day. I had 12 of my 21 participate which was a pretty good percentage since I don't have a lot of parent participation in this group of kinders. I had everything from ball players to teachers to doctors to a tattoo artist. He was probably the funniest since his dad is a deacon in the church and his mom is a Sunday school teacher. He was so sincere in what he wanted to be and showed up with washable tattoos all over his arms and face. He even brought tattoos to share with his classmates so they thought his career choice was great. We didn't share how real tattoos are created using a real needle!

Well tomorrow we are off to the zoo for a field trip. This will be my first time going to the zoo in probably 8 years so I am looking forward to it. The weather is supposed to be great (75 degrees and sunny) and most of the zoo is shaded so I think we will have a good time. Now hopefully the kinders behavior will be great as well!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

April Currently

I am once again linking up with Farley for her April Currently. This seems to be the only time I have to spend on other blogs anymore. Being a mommy keeps me busy! Well here it goes:

Listening: It is the end of the day and I have the backdoor of my classroom open so I can hear the sounds of spring outside. I love listening to the birds chirp!
Loving: The weather here in SC this week has been GORGEOUS with highs between the upper 70s to mid 80s and no humidity. It has been perfect weather and makes it very difficult to come in from recess every day.
Thinking: My report cards go home tomorrow and I still have quite a few to finish. We have to manually input our students' mastery, attendance and comments so it takes quite a while to do 21.
Wanting: I would love to have more time with my sweet baby girl. I was able to spend the first 3 months home with her between my maternity leave and summer break. Now I am missing all that time with her. It seems my afternoons and weekends go by so quickly!
Needing: I am definitely in need of spring break. It seems like it is so far away. We still have 2 more full weeks. Our spring break is always the week after Easter and with Easter being late this year so is our break. I am looking forward to spending quality time with my sweet Macy.
Hours & Last Day: Our hours are officially from 7:30 am to 3:00 pm, but on duty weeks I have to be at school by 7:15 am and on Tuesday we have to stay until 4:00 pm for meetings and such. Our last day is June 7th this year.
Now hop on over to Farley's blog and link up with your own Currently!

Happy Spring!

Well today is April 1st and here in SC it sure feels FABULOUS! We have had a high today of 83 degrees and my kinders were loving recess jackets or coats! It was so nice to be in the sunshine. Now I am just looking forward to going home to my little sweetie and enjoying soaking up some more sun outside with her this afternoon. She loves being outside when I get home.
