Currently February


Hope you are staying warm! Well we had an ice day Tuesday and today it is 75 degrees outside. We will see what next week brings. February is here and it is time to link up with Farley at Oh’ Boy 4th Grade.

Listening: Imagine Dragons is one of my name favorite bands.

Loving: My 3-year-old daughter loves Wizard of Oz. We have watched it too many times to count. Today we got to see it in 4D. She was so excited. She sang along and couldn’t take her eyes of the screen. It helped that is was only 20 minutes long. She really liked it when water sprayed on her as the witch was melting. Awesome day!

Thinking: We are staying home tomorrow for the Super Bowl and I have no idea what to cook. We are trying to eat healthy and my favorite Super Bowl snacks are so bad!

Wanting: When is it going to be Spring? This weather has been crazy this year. I live in South Texas and we have never had 2 ice days off. We have had some hurricane days but never 2 ice days. Now just waiting to hear when we will have to make up these 2 days.

Needing: I need to stop stressing over the STAAR test (Texas standardized test). This is my first year in 3rd grade and my first year for the state assessment. I have a very needy class this year and am really worried about them passing. These kids have so many educational needs, I just don’t know what else I can do. We will be taking a practice text at the end of the month so I guess I will just wait and see what happens.

1. I have run 3 marathons. – truth. My last one was in January of 2012.

2. I always wanted to be a teacher. – fib. I said I would never be a teacher. My Bachelor degree is in Psychology. I went back to school in 2000 and got my Masters in Early Childhood and love it! I guess never say never.

3. I have traveled 46 states. – truth. My husband used to own a moving truck and we would move people across the country. It was amazing to get to see all the states and people who make this country wonderful!

I hope you have a great weekend and my the best team win on Sunday!

    Where are you?? We must be somewhere near each other. I am in the Cypress/Tomball area and we had 2 “Ice Days” as well. I teach 2nd grade so I can’t imagine the stress you have as a 3rd grade teacher right now. & my 2nd question is where is this 4D experience? It sounds like such a neat experience.

      I am on the south side of Houston. I taught 2nd grade for 8 years and loved it. The verdict is still out about 3rd grade. The 4D experience is at Moody Gardens in Galveston. Saturday was Educator’s Open House and teachers were free. You will have to look into it for next year. Great to meet another Texas teacher!

    Wow! Another Texan! It must be a sign that I need to return to Texas! I just came from Farley’s Currently February and it brought me here! What’s this 4D experience? Would love to hear more about it! I just clicked to follow you!

      Oh yes, you must return to Texas. The 4D experience is at Moody Gardens in Galveston. It’s great because you wear 3D glasses and the chair shakes and there’s a wind machine in there when Dorthy is in the tornado. There is mist that gets on your face. It’s just a lot of fun! You definitely have to try it out some time.
