October is here but the cool weather has not made it here yet! I’m still waiting. I have put up my Halloween decorations and waiting, waiting, waiting for the fall to arrive!

While I wait I have linked up with Farley at Oh’ Boy 4th Grade with the Currently October.

I am watching House Hunters. I am so ready to start looking for a new house. We have definitely outgrown the one we have now!

I am loving that my toddler went to bed without a fight tonight. Every night she does something to try to get out of going to sleep. Tonight she went into her bed and played with her dolls for a while and then fell asleep. Ahh, so nice!

I am thinking that maybe 40 isn’t so bad. Today is my birthday and I was really dreading it. I don’t feel like I’m 40, so I guess it’s hard to admit that I’m now a member of the 40’s  club. It has been a wonderful day and I am so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends!

I am wanting to feel less overwhelmed at school. I switched to 3rd grade this year and I feel like a brand new teacher. I didn’t expect everything to be so different and I am feeling very inadequate now. I am hoping that I get my confidence back very soon!

I am desperately needing to clean my house! I just can’t seem to find the time to really clean! My weekends are just as busy as the weekdays. My husband says he doesn’t think it looks dirty so, I guess I shouldn’t complain too much.

Treat… I have a Halloween story mobile that I am giving away. It is a fun way to discuss character, setting, problem, and solution with one of your favorite Halloween stories.

    Hi! Happy, Happy Birthday! I found your blog from Farley’s Currently. I hope you had a great birthday…40 isn’t so bad. 🙂 I turn 42 in December and I definitely do not feel 42!!! I completely understand feeling overwhelmed in a new grade level. I moved to 1st this year and there are days that I feel like it’s my first year! Hopefully, that changes soon!

    Love your comment set up! Very cool! 🙂

      Thanks so much! Good luck this year in 1st grade this year. I used to teach 1st grade and is was by far the most rewarding grade! Very tough but awesome to see all the growth.

    I can relate on cleaning the house… every pair of shoes I have worn this week is laying by the front door where I kick them off after I get home from school! Haha! It’s hard to keep up sometimes! Good luck with 3rd grade, I’m sure you’ll get into the swing of things soon!
