Currently - October!

Can you believe it is already October?! This school year is already well on its way! I love October, mostly because I love fall. I love all things pumpkin. I have already made about half a dozen different pumpkin baked goods and have pinned way more! I also really like Halloween, especially all the great movie classics, not to mention the candy! Now on the Currently for this month, hosted by the lovely Farley!

I love the old show Ghost Whisperer. It is not on TV regularly anymore, so I watch it on Netflix. I think Jennifer Love Hewitt is the most beautiful woman in the world. I also thought it was very fitting for October, seeing as she talks to ghosts and all. It really isn't that scary though. You should give it a try!

I am finally done giving the DRA! After DRA'ing 60 first graders, my brain is fried. I could not even stand to look at another DRA! 

Tonight I am going to a seminar about healthy eating. The woman speaking is phenomenal. She brings free samples and shares recipes with healthy substitutions. The seminar is organized by my running club. I am really excited to learn some new tips!

Since we finally finished all this testing, I am ready to start running my intervention reading groups! I still have to wait for grade level meetings to go over the results, but the end is near! Soon I will be teaching! I am beyond excited. Once I am teaching more, I promise my blog will be more exciting!

I love fall weather. This week it is going to be in the 80s! That is not fall weather! I am ready to switch permanently to sweaters and boots. My school does not have air conditioning, so I am definitely over this hot weather.

Trick or Treat
I take most of my photos for my blog on my phone. Before, I was spending time editing each picture with Photoshop, but that takes awhile! Now, I use Instragram to edit my photos quickly on my phone and then transfer them to my computer using Google Drive! Much quicker, and I think they look better!

I cannot wait to see what everyone else is up to! What is happening in your life this month?


  1. How was your healthy eating class? Any tips? So glad you've done with the DRA. yay!


  2. You're finished with your DRAs already!?!? Oh my goodness I am jealous! Have fun enjoying your kids and your yummy treats! :)

  3. I am over the hot weather too. Right now I am thankful we kept the air conditioner in our bedroom window. How was your healthy eating class?

  4. I have never heard of Ghost Whisperer - but I will definitely have to check it out :)
    I love fall too - we're getting plenty of tried-and-true fall weather in Seattle, so come on by :)

    Thanks for the tip about editing in Instragram - that's going to save me lots of time!

  5. Hi Amy,
    Your healthy eating seminar sounds wonderful. I agree with Jessica. The Seattle area has true fall weather happening.

    Take care,

  6. Air high-five coming your way from Kentucky, Amy! I DRA-ed my 90 5th graders for 2 full weeks (I did nothing but DRA), and felt like I deserved a metal when I do you! :) Not to do them again in December and May....ahahahahaaa!
