I’ve taken at least 3 naps this week. I swear they were not during school hours…wink wink
No, seriously. I was in bed til 10 today and took a nap. I’m exhausted! Maybe it’s the fact that as I mentioned earlier some crazy teacher thought she could do bats, Halloween-free Halloween, and Day of the Dead this past week, plus on Friday make pretzel skeletons and bake skull cookies! {pictures coming because it was fun}
You see, I don’t like to hang on to something after the fact. Once the week is up, I don’t want to do anything else related to it. I cannot explain it. We didn’t finish If I were a bat writing Friday. But I don’t want to know…I want to do election stuff…whine
But on to something I look forward to about as much as Thanksgiving break…Currently!
cutie font is Hello Birdie!
Minecraft-it has taken over our lives. The boys fight about it. They wake up early to get to play before each other. We have to assign times for playing. Now you may ask yourself why Mr Lamb and I don’t just NOT let them play. Well, you see, we just moved out of a 3 story house {that we just got an offer one woot woot} into my grandparents 1 story house. It’s all I can do not to strangle the men I live with each day. That game saves their lives in my opinion.
loving-like most others, fall is my fav clothing season. I love the colors, boots, jeans, cardis, and jackets! I would wear brown each day! But for some reason all my pants are getting a little tight in the waist…I cannot figure it out either. I mean, I left my wallet and a Krispy Kreme doughnut at school Friday and I’m not sure which one I miss more…the building is locked too.
sad face-it’s something a kid in my class says if something disappoints him. Usually that something is me telling him no to something. I like it. It really says it all. But so I want to use his language or him use mine?? And speaking of my kiddos, they were surprisingly great this week. Not sure if they actually were great or just themselves and everybody else was crazy so we fit in!? I have a roamer issue in my class. I have about 3 girls who are constantly roaming around. My principal commented on my observation how nice it was to see they were comfortable in my class and it was refreshing. I was secretly having a panic attack. I do not like it. What do you do? I used to give popsicle sticks and they had to give them to me if they got up. But them what. Give them a negative in class dojo? I need more! Help!!
wanting and needing are in the eyes of the beholder. Just like your weight. I get eye rolls if I say I feel fat one day at work. But everyone has those days! sad face! I want a new laptop. Nothing really wrong with mine, just would like an updated one. I also have been eyeing the new Crocs my hair dresser just bought. I shuttered a little when she said she ordered Crocs {think big fat foam shoes for the garden} but they have some awesome shoes! Check out the flats and boots!

and yes, I just had a Skinny Cow truffle bar for dinner. They are divine, but not exactly what I want you know.

I'm also kinda needing and wanting to win Amanda's Grateful Bags Giveaway! Have you seen these bags!! Go and enter-or don't. It'll make my chances better! =0

music-last year we listed to Adele in class. They begged for it. This year I don’t’ have as much music going. Not sure, but when I do we listen to the Lumineers. I like having music I actually like that doesn’t have inappropriate language. However, they beg to watch I’m Elmo and I know it on YouTube!

I am feverishly kinda working on my upcoming Christmas unit!  I pretty pumped! Fingers crossed I get it finished before Christmas!


  1. Cute post. My son loves Minecraft too though he hasn't been playing lately. The obsessions change often...happy face! Fall is my fave though in South Florida the trees don't change...sad face! (I like that 2nd grade language!) I love the Currently activities. So fun in the classroom too...makes the kids think and reflect!

  2. Currently tired? I know the feeling! I love the cooler temps and fall boots too. I was just reminded about another reason to currently love- another hour of sleep for tomorrow!

    Those crocs are super cute -- I said I wanted new flats, too! I will have to go check these out.
    Thanks for sharing the Elmo video. I can't wait to show my kids. :)

  4. I have to show my daughter Elmo!

  5. I love me a good nap! I especially love it now that the weather is cooler and I can snuggle under an afghan and snooze away! Enjoy that extra hour of sleep tonight.

  6. Agh!! So, I'm not the only one that needs to go shopping for new jeans since it's boot season! :( Maybe if we stopped taking so many naps?!?

  7. Yum! Skinny Cow truffle bars! I refuse to shop for new jeans. I'm determined to take control back (right after I eat an outrageous number of Christmas cookies in December). :)
