Late...Wednesday WOW!...oops!

Happy Halloween!
Did you go out tonight?  I walked around with a mermaid and a Spider-Girl.

Did I mention that it was pouring...wait...POURING!  We got a little soaked.  But that just makes for a very memorable night.

So, moving on...I completely forgot my own linky party!  Oh my!  It is late, but I'm rollin' with it. :)

I have two small WOWs this week.  First one-Aimsweb.  We just adopted Aims as our progress monitor for math and reading this year.  We did math last year but not the reading component.  I have been working hard to understand the "rate of improvements," growth lines, trend lines, etc (should I keep listing?)  I did figure out many things but then we had some training yesterday....and...AHA! I finally get it.  I finally get it.

Second up...home.  I have been feeling a little overwhelmed lately (anyone else?)  It is my fault.  I look around my house, or think about school, or think about blog-land and just start to feel overwhelmed with all the things that need or want to do.  So much cleaning, so many toys, so many student needs, ( I shouldn't go on.)
That leads me to home.  We went to my parent's house for dinner this week (they just live next door).  And I realized (well, forgot) how nice it can be to just be at home.  To just relax.  To not need to clean.  No laundry for a little while.  It was needed.  It was nice.  We probably all have a place that is calming to us.  But I seem to forget that my place is just next door.

Hope you can link up to share something WOW about your week.



  1. Oh my!!!! I totally hear yah! I feel extremely overwhelmed, too! I'm juggling between report cards, our school newspaper, a school function, planning, report cards, reading blogs, and my 3 sons' hockey schedules. Phew! My poor little 'ol blog has also been neglected. :-(
    We were out in the rain, too. It was so windy that our umbrella didn't want to cooperate.

  2. I just linked up. Thanks for the linky party!

  3. Thanks for sharing your feelings.....it's nice to know that others feel overwhelmed as well!!
