Currently... April Edition

I have just recently started blogging and I am really enjoying Farley's Currently link-ups! Be sure to check out her blog Oh' Boy Fourth Grade. What a fun way to share! 

I think I am going to purchase her Currently product in her TpT store and dedicate a bulletin board to it next year. What a great way for my students to share about themselves!

Well... here is my Currently, April Edition!, we have four dogs. They are all my babies, but I have a huge soft spot for our little beagle, Cupcake. When we rescued her she had all sorts of problems- heartworms, a urinary tract infection, she had just lost a litter of puppies, and was scared to death of everything. Bless her heart, she cowered if you looked at her. We got all of her health problems healed up, and then with the help of our other dogs and a lot of patience we got her spirit healed up, too. She is now the life of the party! She sleeps with us, and boy, can she snore!!! Listening to her right now as she is in a deep sleep curled up right beside me. What a sweet sound!

Loving... reading fairy tales to my class right now. We are in the middle of a unit on Fairy Tale, Fables, and Myths. I have been reading both traditional and fractured versions. Yesterday I read a cajun version of Little Red Riding Hood... HILARIOUS! We had to stop a few times just to laugh! 

Thinking... I need to go to the store. UGH! The grocery store is calling my name. Maybe I won't answer?

Wanting... spring weather and flip flops! Especially for tomorrow morning. My daughter has a softball tournament and it is supposed to be 27 degrees when we arrive at the ballpark. Thanks goodness I have a warm sleeping bag to burrow down in.

Needing... grass in my backyard. With four dogs, that is 16 paws to clean every time they go out into the mud pit!

Our last day of school is May 23rd- the kids are there from 8:55 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. I usually go in about 7:15 a.m. and am contracted until 4:00 p.m. 

Have a great weekend! 


  1. I am loving your colorful blog! How cheery it looks and it has made me smile! I am your newest follower thanks to Farley's rule of 3. Cupcake is just precious. We rescued our Shelby 5 years ago as a puppy and she use to hide in the corner. She was so tiny, but we loved her to bits and now she is the love of our lives. We all treat her like she was human!
    May 23rd! That is just perfect, I would love to be counting down to that day. Ours is June 6th, not much more, but still May 23rd would be heaven.

    Stop by my little blog and follow along with my antics, lol!

  2. We have a beagle, too, that we rescued! :) We had two, but one just recently passed was sad since the two were so close (we rescued them at the same time)....but our Molly has really come around and started bonding with the family (before, the two had bonded together instead of us - I had no idea that could happen until someone told me. I just thought, hey, small dogs - let's rescue two!).

    Love your blog. Found you thru Farley (she is fun, isn't she?). Come check out my lil' spot in the world!

  3. Schools out May 23rd, wow! We get back from spring break on May 5th and don't get out of school till July 25th. I am at a year round school so that would be why it is so late in the summer.

  4. Wow - 1:45? That's amazing. What a short school day - you must be superwoman to get it all done in that time! So happy to have found your sweet blog :)

    1. Only 1:45 on the last day of school! I think I misunderstood the question. Our regular school day ends at 3:45!

  5. I just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for the Liebster award. You can read the directions for the award on my blog. Congrats!
