September Currently

I love this time of year! The months of September through December have got to be my favorite. I can't wait for the temperature to drop. It is still over 90 degrees here. I am linking up with Farley for this month's Currently!! 

My hubby is upstairs giving my little one a bath and then nap time for her. My older girls are playing. It is nice when they are all getting along. I am loving that there was no school today. I needed desperately to catch up on my sleep and I did. Well as much as I can for having a
 2 1/2 year old. She decided to sleep all night. Triumph!

Yesterday while my little one was napping I did my lesson plans for the week after this week. Our grade level splits the planning. I am responsible for Word Study and Reading. I also do my reading group plans. For the next few weeks there will be no groups since I am teaching my students how Daily 5 works and I am assessing. I am super excited that I am a week ahead!!!! Hubby suggested always staying a week ahead and that is a super idea. You can see that this was one of my goals.

My sister watches my little one every day while I am at work. She loves my sister but the weirdest thing has been happening. Every morning I bring her she starts crying the minute we turn into the development. She cries "I don't want to go." My sister has to take her from me because she is in tears, just hysterical. She is always fine 5 minutes later and when I pick her up she is all smiles. I am not sure what is going on but it breaks my heart. This is why I am hoping for a peaceful morning tomorrow. Even yesterday she kept saying "we're not turning" and ''we're not going to Heidi's." This might be a long year!

We got DirectTV a month ago and I have learned how to use the DVR. We recorded a bunch of movies that we still need to watch. I am thinking I better get on it.

My first goal is to run 3 miles. I have done it before using Couch To 5K. I even did the Color Run and another run where I ran the whole 3 miles. That was quite awhile ago though. I started Couch To 5K again and am on Week 7. I ran for 20 minutes on my treadmill twice now. It is still too hot for me to run outside. I signed up for the Color Me Rad run in October and I have to be ready for it. My second goal is to stay a week ahead in planning. I covered this already. My third goal is to not go in to school on the weekends.  I am hoping that if I can stick to the second goal, than the third goal should be manageable. We will see what happens.

Have a great rest of the day and week!!

Your post sounds similar to my post. I slept a ton the last few days! Good luck with doing the Couch to 5K :)

I am also looking forward to fall, as it is also going to be 90 for the start of school next week and we don't have air conditioning! I have to look up the couch to 5k - that sounds like something I'd be interested in!

That is really typical behavior for a 2.5 year old. I teach 4 year old preschool. I use to teach the twos. I did that for three years. I use to tell the moms no matter how fun I make it I am not you. She is putting on a show for you especially if she is fine in 5 minutes. This will probably get better fairly quickly. You just need to remain positive and hide the fact from her that it bothers you. Hang in there. I wish you a great morning tomorrow.
