I linked up with Rowdy in First Grade to reflect on the little things we too often take for granted. I love the spirit of this blog and thought I could share many good things going on both at school and at home. Here are just a few:
At SCHOOL: School is in full swing-students are into their routines, we are reading one of my favorite novels, Hunger Games, and we have a number of exciting 6th grade related things to work on over next week. From student-led conference portfolios to our 2nd Annual Pumpkin Day that involves all kinds of math related activities that come with the carving of a pumpkin. I LOVE working with my team and allowing our students to work together. Here are a few pics of last year’s event before, during, and after pumpkins were carved! I am SO excited for Friday to get here!

At HOME: My son was in the hospital a few weeks ago for an infection in his lymph nodes and we had a 4-day stay at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. I am loving that he is back to perfect health and complete normalcy in his crazy 6-year-old boy playfulness. He is tackling friends in the front yard, riding his bike as fast as he possible can, and just sweet as can be. I LOVE that! Here are some pics of my son, daughter, and husband doing fun fall, pumpkin things:

I love having the chance to reflect on the great things happening, so I am always grateful when something stops me in my tracks to do just that! It makes me excited for the days, weeks, and months to come, but also reminds me to take time and just enjoy these great moments as a teacher and a mom. I can’t wait to hear about all of the “Good Things” going on with my blogging friends! Your turn to link up! If you don’t have a blog, feel free to leave a comment about something good happening at school and something good happening at home. I LOVE GOOD THINGS!
