Holy Moly! I can't believe how many "Currently" early birds there are out there! It's amazingly awesome how much Farley's currently has grown and how hugely popular it is!  I love it... I look forward to it each month! =) If I was still on Spring Break, I would have jumped on it hours ago. This gal had to go back to the daily classroom grind though, so no early blogging fun for me. =(.  I'm excited to be linking up again with Farley for "Currently" this month. You should link up too... everyone's doing it. Peer pressure... come on! 

Listening:I love Jeopardy. I watch it every night. I really like when the kids are on. I feel really smart then. I don't love when it's tournament of champions. I don't feel as smart. =) **Makenzie just got her first jeopardy question correct! The answer was "What is Peter Pan"... she totally got it, all by herself!!** =)

Loving: Boy, that Easter Bunny really knows which kinds of candies Mommy loves! I LOVE me some chocolate!! =)

Thinking: The countdown to the last day has begun! I feel like there's still SO much to teach! It's crunch time!! Ahhhhh.

Wanting: We just upgraded my Microsoft office, so now I want a new version of an adobe product. I'd LOVE my own version of Photoshop. Probably won't happen though. If you know of any good deals on Adobe, please let me know! =)

Needing: I have to get Makenzie's registration stuff all together for "Kindergarten Round Up" on Wednesday. I still can't believe my baby is going to be a Kindergartner! She's growing up too quickly!

Advice:  Blogging Advice: It's so awesome to make blogging connections and friends in this fabulous blogging community. As you're checking everyone's posts, leave some love, fill some buckets, and let the people you follow know that you like what they have to say. As a blogger, respond back either right under their comment, or in a personal email. Be patient... you're not going to have a ton of followers right away, so make those connections!!!
TPT Advice: We're still pretty new at this, but our philosophy has been to make products that we will use in our classrooms or in our products. We make things that we know our kids will enjoy. Be true to yourself and don't copy other people. Set milestones for yourself and CELEBRATE your success! We just accomplished two milestones in this past week and we are PUMPED!! Be patient...  you're not going to make a million over night, so celebrate what you do accomplish!
HAVE FUN and do it because you enjoy it!! If this becomes a chore and a burden, is it really worth it?

Make sure you link up with Farley!! Click below to link up!! =)


  1. Fill lots of buckets- that is sooo true!! You two are good bucket fillers too. :) <3

  2. I feel the same way! We have 47 days of school left and I don't know how I am going to get it all done. Somehow I always manage to do it though! Have a great April!

  3. Love your blog! We just began our Spring Break and I hope to get a little rest! Having a kindergartner will keep you hopping! My little one will be a firstie soon (she keeps reminding me)! They are so funny at this age!

  4. I LOVE Jeopardy too - what a great show! My hubby and I sing the theme song constantly - and make light-saber noise when the Daily Double comes on :)

    I definitely agree with your advice - thanks for sharing from your heart. It is encouraging and challenging!

    Although, I will admit - One of my milestones is to hit a million :)

  5. I am so glad you left a comment on my blog so I can follow you two! I'm going to add you to my blog roll! I am a true believer in bucket filling! I hope you have a wonderful, fabulous, peaceful and fun week with your kiddos!

  6. Love the advice! I feel that everyone has their niche. You just have to find it.I make what I would use in my classroom and it's my own style. Easter chocolates are yummy! My kids admitted they know I'm the bunny! Sad yet I feel the pressure is off! LOL!

  7. Ahh you teach in Florida and in Central Florida so do I! I teach in Orlando! I think it is so fun to find teachers who teach in your area! I also can't believe there are only 46 days left of school but I'm still counting down the days! Most of my babies (12/19) are ready for 2nd grade! I still got to work on the other 6 with at least one of these: behavior, maturity, social skills, and academics.
