I am one tired chick on this particular Wednesday. I didn't sleep too well last night, even though I was tired which makes for a draining day at school. Ugh! So here's how my Wednesday went:
*Began to rain on my way to work and then came down heavily until school started. Because of this, when school started at 8:10 a.m. I had only 12 students in my class! Over the next 30 minutes 15 trickled in 1 or 2 at a time...frustrating to say the least.
*The kids have been very excited about the science we've started. We're learning about weather; we talked about wind and made a wind vane; temperature and what a thermometer is used for (They love that I put a thermometer inside on our calendar wall and one outside our door. Someone is always letting me know the temp!) and we've talked about rain and put a rain guage outside to try and catch some of the rain we've had this week.
*Two of my struggling readers are starting to realize that they're reading! Yay! I love when things finally start to "click" for these guys. One of my boys asks me every chance he gets if he can read a book to me or practice words with him. I LOVE it! (I gave him a note written on the cute star notepad I bought last night and he was BEAMING!! See it WAS money well spent. haha!)
*Wednesdays are early dismissal for the kids, which means meeting days for us teachers. After meeting with my grade level I got to cleaning up my room and prepping a few things for my LONG Thursday and kept noticing that the parking lot was getting emptier and emptier as time went on. I only stayed til 4:30 but I was the absolute last person at work...bizarre since that's pretty early! Oh, well. I'm ready for tomorrow. :)
*Since my husband picked up our kids from school, I stopped off at Barnes and Noble and got these cute books. I know I'm a few days away from Pay Day but I had to get them. (Click on the books for a description.)
*I'm a sucker for infomercials! (Apparently, so is my husband...I'm just realizing this) This is our most recent purchase--for me, of course!! The Brazilian Butt Lift! Yep, I own it...the DVD, not the butt...YET!! ;) I did one of the workouts when I got home. This was my 3rd workout and I'm telling you it is a killer! Did you know in Brazil boom boom means butt? Well it does. And Leandro wants me to squeeze my boom boom!
*After my booty workout, I decided to walk on my treadmill for 30 min. (Guess I wasn't tired anymore.)
*The kids just went to bed, I have the living room to myself. :) As I type I'm listening to music, working on my computer, and icing my shins (bad case of shin splints from running).
After hearing about others who've had or are having their Spring Breaks, I'm looking forward to mine which begins next Thursday!! I can't wait!! Enjoy your Spring Breaks and just think, the end of the school year will be here before you know it. Happy Thursday everyone!!
