It is also Currently time to LINK UP! Thanks as always to Farley for keeping us blogging- sometimes its the only blog post we make each month, but we still do it!
Listening: I just love Zac Brown Band. Their music represents summer for me. Knee Deep was my favorite song our last summer in Texas. Island Song (another awesome one) was my favorite song the summer we went to the Bahamas. Free... Settle Me Down... so many good ones!
Loving: Spring is finally here in Texas! Jeff made me a new patio to sit on (took out the old deck and put down pavers). It's so pretty and I treated myself to a new patio set. I am pretty sure he will have it all set up for me so I can drink my coffee and do some work (writing Guided Reading lesson plans) on the patio in the morning before our day out on the boat.
Thinking: Usually April/May is NOT a busy time in my line of work (Educational Consulting). However, this year, it is non-stop! I had a couple of weeks off in April, and then the fury started. I keep reminding myself that I only have two more trips and then I can have a two week break.
Wanting: I love teaching Guided Reading- but I don't always enjoy preparing to teach Guided Reading. I have to do it- I know I have to do it. The only way to ensure a good Guided Reading lesson is to preview the text, and make good instructional decisions for each book/text/reader. I am however, dragging my feet getting started. I have a feeling it will be happening on the patio tomorrow morning.
Needing: I am in desperate need of a day on the boat (not so much looking forward to my bathing suit) but I desperately want a day floating on our anchor line at the sandbar! I want to be out there just after lunchtime and make dinner and come back in my the glow of the moon! I need a day/night on the boat.
Surprise: My friend Kathy is part of the Educational Consulting world with me. We don't see each other as often as we should, but we have some of the best conversations via text messages and of course we read each other's blogs. Check out her blog here!
