Currently!

It's October!  Finally.  I think  my class is settling in and we are starting to groove. Thank goodness.  Although most days I think I'm the one doing more grooving than the kiddos.  First grade is tough ya'll!  And throw in LOTS of rainy days, the blood moon, minor/major daily disruptions, and Hurricane Joaquin and you've get yourself a BIG ole' headache.  That hurricane may have never graced our presence officially here in SC, but we sure did get record breaking rain and floods.  In fact, we were out of school yesterday due to the potential of heavy rain and deadly flash flooding.  Thanks Joaquin!  Now head on out of here so we can get back to business!
 
Here's what I'm doing currently on this rained out, washed out, flooded out Saturday.
 
 
As I mentioned above, it has done nothing but rain the past few days.  The cooler weather that this storm brought in has been nice.  But the rain, I'm ready for it to go away!
 
Report cards go home in just a few short weeks.  That means I need to start scheduling parent conferences.  I'm planning only meeting with those that I NEED to meet with first.  Time is precious and I need to use what little time I have of it to set up plans of action for those who are not making progress.  Do you have that kind of flexibility?  Or, are you required to meet with every parent?
 
The only thing I want or need right is some sunny weather.  That's all.
 
I think my girls are boo-tiful!  I love them to pieces.  My oldest is a sophomore in high school.  She's smart, caring, loves the lord, and loves to play soccer.  She works hard and is taking a course load that I would have balked out when I was her age.  I'm so proud of her and grateful that she lets me participate in her life.  My youngest is a piece of work.  She's smart as well and has a vocabulary that rivals that of someone that is 20 years older than she is.  Thanks common core!  She is also kind, caring, and full of herself.  She comes up with things that makes us laugh and wonder where she came from!  I'm so blessed.
 
What are you up to currently?  How's the weather where you are?  Are you enjoying this beautiful Autumn season?
 
Head on over to Farley's and link up to share!

  2. For our fall conferences, we meet with all of our parents. Ours are in a couple weeks so I am starting to prep for them this weekend. In the spring, we only have to meet with parents of students who are receiving interventions or any other students we have concerns about. Parents can request a conference in the spring though if they have concerns. I really like it this way because it gives us more time with parents we really need to chat with.

  3. We meet with all our parents. We had our conferences last week, so I'm done until spring with conferences!! Having children who love the Lord are a blessing! I feel so blessed knowing that my children still go to church even now that they have flown the nest. I hope you are safe from flooding where you are. We've had clouds and strong wind, but no rain in Michigan!
