April Currently

With the flip of a calendar page, it's already April! It's just past midnight on April 2, and I'm already well past the 300th person to join in on this month's currently linky. Wow! I'm going to follow the rule of 3 and check out at least 3 other folks' posts - but I'd love to read them all!

Here is mine. Be sure to go link up if you haven't yet.

Listening: These days I'm loving JT's new album. It's great music to keep me moving.

Loving: The school year is winding down! This year's group has been especially challenging, so I'm looking forward to some down time to recharge. We have some fun things planned for the last 6 weeks, so it will fly past!

Thinking: I should be sleeping! I got my second wind, and need to just put things away and go to sleep. The dangers of being home alone while the dear boyfriend is out of town...

Wanting: I love springtime. I don't love that springtime in Phoenix often means 90 degree temperatures. I want my 80s - at least for a few weeks. It's too soon for SPF and sweaty after-school duties!

Needing: I need some motivation to stay after school once or twice a week and start purging/organizing. I've somehow accumulated a lot of STUFF this year, and it needs to find a home. Preferably not all in my classroom...

Advice: Since I'm pretty new to selling/blogging/etc., I don't really have any advice. Instead, my advice is personal in nature. I think it speaks for itself.

I hope everyone has a great April! I know for many, April means testing season, and that is always stressful. May you find peace through this time of year. :)


  1. I feel you on the 90 degree temps, but I am needing some of your heat down here in Georgia! It's been ridiculously cold!!! I can't believe there are only 35ish days left! Aaaaahhh! Found you over at Farley's!

    1. Let's split the temp difference. Ha! ;)

      Thanks for stopping by!!

  2. Autumn here in Australia and perfect temperatures for the beach! We're averaging mid to high 20's (celsius) which is is amazing after the -20's I had in Canada not so long ago. :)

    Found you through the linky. :)


    Love, Laughter and Learning in Prep

    1. Thanks for stopping by! The beach sure sounds delightful right about now.

      I hope you enjoy your time with your boyfriend in town! :)

  3. Thanks for sharing! I found you on the April Currently! I am a 4th grade teacher too.

    1. I love linking up with other 4th grade teachers! Thanks for stopping by!


  4. Hi there, I found your blog from the currently link. I can't believe there are so few days left in the school year! I will have to count up my days and see how many we have. Last year we moved classrooms because of construction and I believe this year we have to move back, so I need to start thinking about packing too.

    1. We're down to 33 days! (not that I'm counting ;) ...) Moving classrooms stresses me, but really helps me to purge unnecessary things. Good luck!

      Thanks for hopping over!
