October Currrently

It's time for Farley's Currently! I'm linkin up with Farley (from Oh Boy Fourth Grade) to share what's happening currently.

I love fall!  I'm so excited to make pumpkin bread and apple crisp with my kids (at home).  All year, I look forward to having at least one  Saturday afternoon full of baking, football and crisp fall air. 

On Monday, my husband (dad, chef, teacher, coach and dancer extraordinaire) will celebrate 13 years of marriage.  I'm a lucky girl (not just because he is our chef).  He puts up with me...which might not be easy.  We are total opposites in some ways.  He is spontaneous (me, not so much).  He is easy going (me, not so much).  He gets bored easily and prefers to be on the go all the time (I would love to have 5 minutes to sit in total silence all by myself).  Together we are two parents (both teachers) who have the same values, respect for each other, love for our kids and an appreciation for the little things in life...a strong team.  

My favorite fall/Halloween book is Where's My Mummy?  I like to use this book to kick off a writing activity about the things your mom does to help you feel comfortable when you are scared.  

Head on over to link up with Farley and/or read what is happening currently with everyone.  Don't forget the rule of 3.

  2. It's always a good time to bake pumpkin bread! But I think it tastes especially good in the fall.
    I concur - I don't really need anything other than more sleep. So, I am going to go and work on that now.
