Currently April

It is time to link up with Farley for her monthly Currently!



I can't believe the Baylor women's team lost! Hating on some refs, right now, I must say. But my Tennessee Lady Vols made it through to the next round!

I just love me a three day weekend. Are you sure we can't have one every week?

We are planning 2 Saturday half-day camps for a last minute push before the STAAR reading and math tests. Anybody got some great games for fourth grade reading?

We take the writing test this week. I am skeeered. Nuff said.

I have not been motivated to finish grading. Tomorrow will be a mini-marathon before grades are due. Sigh.

When I read a blog, I don't want to just see an ad for your products. Show me pictures of it in use and tell me how you implemented it. I am much more likely to buy!

Tomorrow is April Fool's Day. I will play my standard trick on the kids by putting a giant green mark on my cheek with a marker. Then, when the kids tell me I have a mark on my face, I can just say, "Sure. April Fool's. You want me to look in a mirror. I get it." They hate it!

Get on over to Farley's and link up! Don't forget her Rule of Three!

Bobby Hill

Have any of you ever watched the show "King of the Hill?" I have the funniest boy who looks exactly like Bobby on that show. He is the sweetest kid and does the oddest things, making me laugh on a regular basis.

The other day, he got mad at another kid and came up to me and said, " ---- needs to get out of my f'ing face!" Only he didn't abbreviate it. I asked him to go get his planner, and before I wrote in it, I asked him if he knew what that word meant. He told me he heard it all the time in his games. I told him it was a curse word. He morphed into the face from the Edward Munsch painting, The Scream. Then I told him it was one of the worst curse words to use. He immediately said that he didn't mean to do that. I told him I knew it, but I had to write in his planner. I wrote that he had used an inappropriate word and that he should tell his parents exactly what he said and discuss it with them.

The next morning, he came in and oh, so earnestly told me that his father said he should apologize again for using the word. The look of disgust on his face when he told me that Dad had explained exactly what it meant was priceless. It was all I could do not to laugh out loud.

I think he won't curse in class again any time soon.

Proud to be a Texas Blogger . . . and more!

Lucky me! Spring Break is here!

We spent 4 days doing district testing. I am so proud of my kids. Their scores in reading were fantabulous. We also posted gains in writing, but not enough for my comfort. And we only have 2 weeks of instruction before the test. Yikes!

I spent last night at a game night and slumber party. My real life friends know that I am a women's basketball fan. I have had season tickets to the WNBA Silver Stars for 10 years, but they only play in the summer. So to feed my addiction, I've been attending one of our local university's women's games in the winter/spring. Two of us in my group of friends who attend have won a one night stay at a local hotel, so we've used those vouchers to have a group party.

Last night, 9 of us got together in a mini-suite and played Taboo. It was so much fun! We brought adult beverages and snacks and just had a great old time. The room sleeps 6, but only 2 of us stayed all night. Then we capped the fun off by meeting up for breakfast the next morning. I had chilaquiles - eggs cooked with hot sauce and broken tortilla chips, with refried beans and Mexican style fried potatoes. Boy, was it good!

Monday we leave for the team's conference tournament in Las Vegas! I am traveling with Farley's momma and daddy and we will meet up with some of our other friends there.

Posting will be light until I return. However, you can locate some great blogs to check out here!

March Currently

It's time for Farley's latest Currently linky party!


The tv is always on here at Casa Krazy. Currently, it's tuned to House Hunters International. Anyone else wonder how those folks can afford the homes on these shows?

I bought myself a new iPad mini. It is so cute! 

Spring Break cannot get here soon enough. We have an early dismissal on Friday, and I am hoping I (and the students!) make it unscathed.

The reason I am wanting Spring Break? Those sassy kids!

I am going to Vegas during Spring Break to cheer on my UTSA Lady Roadrunners basketball team in their conference tournament. And to sightsee. And gamble a little. And shop. And see a show or two.
Edited to add that I am going to Vegas with Farley's mama and daddy! Her whole family is fab! 

I like sleeping in on Saturdays, I love sarcasm, and I hate stupidity. Use some common sense, people!

Now go check out everyone else who linked up here!
