Spring Break, Vents & Food

Yea!!!!  It is April and the weather is at last changing after a cold and snowy winter. I have been seeing peeks of spring everywhere.  My willow tree bloomed, the daffodils are popping out of the ground and crocuses are blooming.  How beautiful....

 Also it is Farley's awesome linky party!!!! Click HERE to check out her hoppin' party!!   This I my favorite linky especially since I am on spring break so I can link up kind of early. Also check out those cute chick graphics what is not to love.

Listening- Okay that is obvious to any parent with kids home on spring break too. 

Loving - I think every teacher at this point in the school year needs a break.  I know some teachers do not get a spring break.  How do they do this home stretch????

Thinking - I always need to clean and every Currently I want a cleaning fairy but she never comes!  LOL So it is up to me....and boy do I need to. I am taking a break now after taking all my heater vents off and vacuuming and wiping them down.  Talk about gross with 2 dogs, 1 cat and 3 kids (not counting the hubby) the vents become hair and dust collectors!  Now I hope to vacuum and wash the carpeting next but I am still hoping for the fairy to come save the day! 

Wanting - We all wanted to go somewhere fun over break but with a family of 5 it can get expensive.  We did do a lot of fun things so far over break;  Skyzone, formal dress shopping with my middle (Nope, we did not find anything.  Is there such a things as a formal soccer jersey??), ear piecing for my youngest, poker party for my oldest and we have a few more days to have some fun especially since hubby will be home through Monday.  Yahooo!! he is always up for an adventure.

Needing - Ok one word....teenagers!  They eat me out of everything within a few days.

EGGS-plain your name - Well I think this is obvious with the blog name of 4th & 5th grade Happiness.  I have been a teacher for 19 years and have pretty much taught 4th & 5th grade the entire time.  The intermediate grade kids are AWESOME.  They are old enough they do not need to be babied (NO hanging on me, blowing noses or tying shoes...I taught preschool for one year.)  but they are not too cool to still like / love their teacher. Most of the kids love to come to school and their curiosity is contagious.  I also love the curriculum at this age and I am usually smarter then a 5th grader!  LOL  What is not to LOVE about 4th & 5th grade, it makes me happy to see their smiling faces everyday!  One strange thing is I never completed 4th grade due to kidney disease.  Hmmmm what would a psych say about that? 

Happy Thursday & Happy Easter,



  1. Well we have a lot in common. I too have 3 teenagers, all boys, so I can totally relate to the noise, the food problems and the mess! I am always looking for that cleaning fairy and have yet to find her too! I have yet to begin my cleaning list so you are ahead of me. Enjoy the rest of your spring break. Hopefully you'll get to go somewhere fun!

    Luv My Kinders

  2. Cleaning was on my list too! I have been home all week with my daughter. She had her tonsils out. You would think I would have gotten some things done. But no can do!!! I didn't do it and now break is almost over. My office/craft room is really messy right now!!!
