September Currently

I don't know about you, but the beginning of the year is
e-x-h-a-u-s-t-i-n-g!  The beginning of my year was *just a tad* different than any of my other years!  Early in the morning of the first teacher workday I went to the hospital with severe chest pain.  After thirty, yes thirty, hours, the doctors found that my gall bladder was not functioning ... at all ... so surgery was scheduled for Friday (the second teacher workday).  And while the surgeon was in, he found and repaired a small hernia!  I missed all but one workday and the first two days with my firsties.  I am, thankfully, starting to feel better and even drove myself to school today for the first time (and grocery shopped yesterday by myself, too!).
Anyhoo, here's my Currently.
Thinking - I LOVE "Duck Dynasty" and my children at school do, too!  One day last week we received a package from my in-laws, with Duck Commander cups for us.  I am heading to the bookstore tomorrow afternoon to pick up Uncle Si's new book and can't wait to get started!

Wanting - How is it that we don't remember how much our feet and back hurt at the beginning of the year?  My feet are rough and I could go for a good pedicure now.

My Happy Heart - I love taking pictures, but don't always think about it until the special moment has passed.  I want to be vigilant about that this month, along with spending some quality time with family and away from school things (let's face it - we always get everything finished, right?!) to make memories and do a little fun reading.

In honor of my love for "Duck Dynasty," I have a math freebie for you.  Click here or on the picture below to get your own!  This mini math unit has a number sense activity with task cards and recording page, as well as addition Write the Room, also with a recording page.

Have a great rest of the week!


  1. Oh no! Thank goodness you are feeling better already though. My feet always hurt so bad the first week back, but that's because I wear heels. That and my feet are used to being in sandals and fun summer shoes all summer and they HATE being in closed off shoes that make them hot and stuffy. Blech!

  2. It was so good to see your smiling face today! I could really tell you felt better! Now, go out and treat yourself to that pedicure! You deserve it!!!
