A blog dedicated to pursue my passion for writing. Stories of teaching and anything else that fills my head.

It's October!! My favourite month of the year and my favourite season, Fall.
I can't believe how the first month of school just flew by. I meant to blog before school started and then once again in September.

Currently, I am listening to my husband making dinner. It's always nice to have dinner made. 

I love Fall! I love watching the leaves turn colours and the cooler temperatures. Today in central Ontario, it felt like 6 degrees Celsius. I love layering up and going for walks. I also celebrate a birthday and anniversary in October.

I am thinking about how lucky I am to have wonderful girlfriends. I just got back from a night away at the cottage with an extraordinary group of ladies.We spent the night drinking wine, talking and laughing.

I am wanting a long weekend only because since school started in September, I feel like I haven't stopped. This past week, I was overhearing a group of teachers saying how they're feeling overwhelmed and finding it hard to keep up. I feel the same way. September is busy and it's not going to slow down for a while. As teachers, we know what's coming. I'm trying to not complain because I really do have a great class of 24 grade 4 students that mostly like coming to school. They make me laugh and I have a great time with them, but it's all the responsibilities beyond the classroom that makes it tough. I think a long weekend would be good for all. Luckily in Canada, Thanksgiving happens in October.

I need to clean my house, enough said.

And finally, the treat. I don't have much to offer other than I hope everyone can enjoy some yummy treats on Halloween. I look forward to trick-or-treating with my 2 year old son.

  1. I teach 4th grade too :)

    Oh I wish we had a long weekend coming up!! Although right after Halloween we have no students on Monday and then a day off on Tuesday for election day. I can't wait for that! Although the Monday will be full of meetings and grades, knowing I have the next day off will be a big treat :)

  2. Hi! I found you through Currently. I am a 2nd grade teacher from Ohio. I hear you about the long weekend! We actually got spoiled two weeks ago and had a surprise Friday off due to severe fog. I actually went to school and worked-- it was great to get caught up on some things. Three day weekends are amazing. We won't get one again until Thanksgiving... unless we get more fog!! :)

  3. I love fall too! Unfortunately we don't get much of it in South Florida. I completely understand about the long weekend....I think we could all use one of them right now!

  4. I am looking forward to Canadian Thanksgiving, too. I'm in BC and we only just started back to school because of our strike. It is October 5 and I have only had one full week with my class! It feels crazy overwhelming!!! Enjoy Fall in Ontario.
