October Currently and Sisterly Love

I decided to link up for the first time with Farley over at Oh' Boy, 4th Grade! for her October Currently.. So here goes! :)

Make sure you go check our Farley's page and link up on all the fun!

I had an unexpected visit from my little sister this weekend!  She moved down to Charlotte to attend Johnson and Wales College for event management.  [Really, she just chose it to follow her big sis, cause I'm so cool ;) ]   When she got here, this is how she was greeted...

Ah yes, that's my Kole- Lover extraordinaire.  He wants to make sure everyone gets love, but of course, he better get it in return, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  And if he doesn't, he'll be sure to let you know by stealing that towel you left on the counter, or chewing up your shoes.  Silly puppy.

Right now, I should probably be making sure I have everything ready for tomorrow.  I've had the past 3 weeks off for intersession, the perks of working at a year round school.. but have been slacking quite a bit.. In fact, I'm not exactly sure what we're going to do tomorrow, so I'm off plan while watching the end of the giants game.. Let's hope they don't slack off and lose their lead.  Hope everyone who has Columbus Day off has a restful Monday!  As for me, I'll be back to my second grade lovelies..


  1. What a treat. I would love an unexpected visit from a family member. They are all so far away it has to be planned out.

    How do you like having the year round schools schedule? I've thought that I would really like it.

    1. I was lucky.. my whole family leaves either in Upstate NY or Iceland, but my sister moved to NC for school, so she's the only one I have close :)

      I LOVE LOVE LOVE the year round schedule. I don't think I could ever go back to traditional without being miserable. The quarters are split up so wonderfully with 3 week breaks in between and they come right when you need them!! :)

  2. Hi Ashley!

    I'm new to the blogging world/Currently Linky parties too! Welcome :)

    I'm a second-year teacher (I teach 5th) so I know all about the chaos and excitement of the first year. But, take a deep breath (or several!) and trust will survive! The first year is wonderful, filled with lots of rewards and challenges. And you'll never quite have a year like it again, so cherish the memories :)

    Let me know if you ever need anything!

  3. I love Fall, too! I just started back to running in June. It is hard at first but feels great once you get back into the rhythm!

    1. Yea, it's the getting back into the rhythm that's beating me :)
