I'm linking up with Jennifer at Rowdy in First Grade!  What a great idea for a linky party, tell one good thing that is happening at school and one good thing that is happening at home.
At school...
This is my first year (after 18 years of teaching) to teach 3rd grade.  I love it!!!  I loved teaching my little first graders but was ready for a change.  Third grade is wonderful!  My students are so independent and eager to learn.  We have great conversations about learning.  They are a very curious group, want to read all the time and had no problem learning classroom procedures.  Yay!
At home...
It has been a busy back to school with my marathon training in full force!  Today was my last looonnnggg run (22 miles) and now the tapering begins!  I love running but I'm also looking forward to  having more time on my hands.

Have a wonderful Saturday!


  1. I linked up as well. I love reading all the different wonderful things happening at school and home! Thanks for sharing! I am starting to train for a 1/2 marathon. Any advice for me would be great! :) Thanks!!

    Btw - you might already have one, but I am hosting a giveaway on my blog. You could win a free, personal laminator! Come check it out if you get the chance! :)
