I am linking up with Farley again for the April edition of Currently. I love this linky party! I have found so many new blogs to follow through it! Check Farley out here:
Listening: My hubby loves watching the first part of The Voice. He enjoys the fact that the judges can't see the contestants. I don't really like the show very much. I prefer Idol, but I must confess that Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey have almost ruined it for me. They offer little substance or entertainment. (My opinion)
Loving: I am SOOOOO ready for spring break. I need a break. My Littles need a break. I couldn't not mention the sweet sunshine that WA is currently experiencing. WOWZERS! This past weekend was stellar. It couldn't have been nicer. Temps hovered at 70 degrees and not a cloud in the sky! This transplanted southern girl was super happy about it!
Thinking: My hubby and I have not been on a "real" vacation in several years. I teach and he is a church planter...funds are always limited. We always go south and see our families, but we are in need of selfish fun and relaxation. I'm thinking CA or AZ.
Wanting: a doughnut....I love carbs. Carbs don't love me. I am trying really hard to eliminate unnecessary carbs from my diet. But, doughnuts are sooooo stinking yummy!
Needing: I need to organize my house. I literally feel better about life when my home and classroom are in order. It's a disease :)
Advice: Provers 3 5-6! Its says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight." I need to remember this advice daily...even hourly sometimes!
In honor of April Fool's Day, I pranked my Littles. I have been planning it ever since I saw an idea on pinterest. Did you guys see this prank?
Brownies---Brown "E's" It was so funny watching the Littles try to figure out what was happening. One even put the paper up to his lips. Bless HIS heart! Then one Little remembered that it was "March April Fool's Day" and that you play jokes on people. Bless HIS heart too! I did bring in real brownies...I'm not that cruel! Once the Littles understood that it was a joke, they thought it was hilarious. They wanted to offer brown "E's" to all who entered our classroom after that. I even had some that drew brown "E's" on paper to prank their families tonight! After the excitement, I had them glue their brown "E" on paper and turn it into something else and write about it. I wish I would have gotten some pictures of their work, but I didn't. Some Littles turned theirs into crowns, cityscapes, houses and robots. It was interesting to see how creative they could be...or not be. 2 of my Littles just made them into letter "m's." Oh well...
