October Currently '15

Time for the amazing Farley's Currently for October.  Click the pic above to join in.

Listening- I told the kids if they got their rooms in order they would be able to have a Halloween party.  The rooms are bad...people, I mean bad.  So, it will take them awhile.  I've been warning my youngest that if it didn't get cleaned up soon, I was going to take several bags and make a mega trip to Goodwill with all her stuff.  When you can't walk in a pretty large bedroom because the floor has so many toys on the floor- there is a problem!

Wanting- Ok, so I have read everything Ron Clark has written, watched a million videos on him and the Ron Clark Academy, and have just began Kim Bearden's book now too.  I have wanted to go to RCA to observe during one of their trainings.  I am slightly obsessed with all things RCA.  I even sent Ron Clark a package/present because I just love his work so much.  I think I will be able to go to RCA this year!  I will talk more about that later.

Needing- When my house is clean, we can get started on decorating with our 8 giant bins of Halloween decorations.  Yup, about 8 big Sterilite orange and black bins!  Sooooo, we kinda like Halloween. 

Let's have a great October!


  1. I can't wait to start decorating for Halloween as well. I am hoping to do that tomorrow. I would love to go to RCA as well. My new principal is all about Ron Clark too so I am hoping we can talk our district office into letting some of us go!

    1. Awesome! I hope it works out for you.

  2. Nothing better than listening to your children playing. Cherish these days! I put out my two Halloween decorations today!! October is the best month of the year!! Have a good one!

  3. Oh, I feel your pain about keeping bedrooms clean. I have 2 girls and it's a never ending battle with them! I threaten each night to throw anything away they leave out. It's ridiculous how much stuff they have! Have fun decorating for Halloween. That will take your mind off of all the other cleaning!
