It's October!!! My absolute FAVORITE time of the year. Well... I mean, Texas doesn't know what Fall is so I can't be TOO excited. I can drive to see the Fall weather that I miss. Changing trees, cooler weather, typical white girl style (hoodies, shorts, uggs, and PSL) #judgeme 

I linked up with Farley a day late for Currently! It's been A BUSY life around here. You'll find out! :) 

So, here we go! 

Listening: I am an all things obsessive Nicholas Sparks LOVER. I see a movie on TV, we are watching it. New book, preordered and read ASAP! Plus, Zac Efron isn't too bad to look at ;) 

Loving: October is my favorite favorite favorite time of year. I just wish it was like Oklahoma falls down here in Texas. BUT amazing things happen this month. Our FIRST year wedding anniversary is on the 19th, my husbands birthday is Friday, Halloween with my nephew is going to be SO MUCH FUN. Ah. Just love it! Plus all the Halloween crafts to do with the kiddos. I am TOO excited. 

Thinking: I've had a really rough time this year. I'm not going to sugar coat it. Moving from kindergarten to third grade has been really rough on me. It's a totally different ball game and with all the other changes at my district, well it's education right, what can I do but change my mindset. In my masters program we are really digging into Fountas and Pinnell and I have to find something that works for me before I lose my mind. Any ideas on ELAR schedules, shoot my way! 

Wanting: I need to get myself organized, so who do I call?! Mom. She's on her way here next week. Praise the LORD! 

Needing: My husband. He works so much, and I'm so thankful. But boy do I miss him during the week. Hurry up Friday!
We have a birthday boy to celebrate :)

Hi there! I'm Cassie and I am so excited to be a part of this collaboration! I currently live in Texas and teach 3rd grade ELA! It has been such a crazy moving from kindergarten to third, but it WILL get better! :) I am crazy about books so my biggest goal is to instill a love for reading into these kiddos similar to the love I have! Most of the products you will see from me are comprehension skill related! So happy to have you following along!!

I am married to my best friend, we are coming up on our one year anniversary on October 19 of marriage/8 years together! He is my biggest supporter and I am so thankful for that. We all know teaching is NOT easy!
I don't have a whole lot of pictures of my new adventure in 3rd grade right now! It's been such a busy year already and I have been out for a funeral, out for a conference, out for surgery, it's been an adventure. I am exhausted already. BUT -- these are a few images that get me through my day!
