Well it's April which is suppose to be filled with warmer weather and melting snow here since it's technically spring but there are chances of snow again near the end of the week :( Tear.
It's time for Farley's Currently so head over to Oh Boy, 4th Grade and link up!
Listening... Well it's spring break this week for us and there isn't too much to watch on T.V. during the day so it's turned off which means all I hear is my pup chowing down her food.
Loving... Ultra sounds have seriously become my favourite!!! I wish I could sit and watch our little babe in my belly all day. (sigh)
Thinking... I have been enjoying this time off for spring break. It's giving me time to update my end of the year awards. It's also made me realize how much I need to try and add products to TPT that I make for class. My hands go down to you lovely ladies & gents that add products through out the school year. I am just better at uploading them all in the summer time.
Wanting... to find out our little chub's gender which we will on Sunday!!! I am so impatient and this is just KILLING ME but I really want our families to find out all at the same time. I did have my kiddos in class predict the baby's gender.
Needing... With this baby coming in September I really need my contract renewed for next year. Either way I obviously would like to teach but even more so with a bun in the oven. For the first 2 years of teaching here you have to get offered a contract each year. It's a little nerve racking but I have a fabulous principal that I really trust so my fingers are crossed and prayers are said.
Speaking of contract & baby coming... How long do y'all usually get off for maternity leave?
We get a year here so that'd be Sept. to Sept. for me but I am planning on coming back in January after Christmas break which if I want a full time teaching job next year this would better secure that position.
I think I remember maternity leave in the States being 6 weeks? Is that correct?
Hours and Last Day... Since we don't start until Sept. 6th our last day in June 28th with the kids.
Happy April!!!


  1. Yay! This is so exciting! Before I found out my son's gender, I made sure to drink spicy V8 (and have a full bladder- gross. sorry). I swear it helped- he was dancing around and it was so obvious what I was having! :) So happy for you!

    1. That's funny! Luckily a root beer and snickers bar did the trick but the ultra sound tech said I should've drank more water too... oops! LOL

  2. Ultrasounds became my BFF, too! I loved being able to see what only I could feel! So exciting! I'll keep my fingers crossed that you get that contract!

    1. It is so exciting, isn't it!!! Thanks Andrea! I'll keep y'all posted if I do :)

  3. So excited for you! Finding out the gender will be so much fun! Keeping my fingers crossed that your contract gets renewed!

  5. Wow! A year for maternity leave? That is awesome! I definitely understand wanting to come back in January to secure your spot. I'll be thinking about you and hoping that your contract is renewed!

  6. Hi! I am visiting from Farley's blog. So nice to meet you! (My sister's name is Brittany!) How exciting it is to have your first baby on the way! I loved being pregnant and miss it sometimes especially since you get to have such a special relationship with that babe before anyone else.
    Good luck with your contract! I will be sending positive vibes your way!

  7. Congrats on your little one!! That is so exciting! And a year maternity leave?! Wow, it should be that way everywhere. I will keep my fingers crossed for your contract to be renewed. =)
