3 Things Thursday


3 Things that make me smile:


  1. My students! I work primarily with 5th graders this year and am getting sad thinking about sending them over to the middle school. I have worked with most of them for 2 years (some 3) and am pleased to have such a great group of kiddos. This morning they had dress rehearsal for their music program and it was awesome! It was very patriotic and a tear jerker for me!
  2. Successful training! I am feeling stronger and needing less recover time between workouts. I have been going to BodyPump class once a week, usually Mondays, and have been able to recover faster from that as well. Actually, I have been able to incorporate the "daddy" weight into my lunges and squats! Sometimes pushing myself through "heavy legs" has helped with recovery as well. I am finding that my rest days are probably my best or easiest days to fit in at least a half hour of yoga, considering I have been getting in a couple two-a-days per week.
  3. Nice weather! Yesterday temps reached 74 degrees here in Fargo, ND! The sun was shining, I had my windows down while driving, and was tempted to turn the air on on the house. It reached almost 80 degrees upstairs. I slept with my bedroom window open! It's great!

Yay! Spring has come to the Arctic tundra!! You know what that means? The mosquitoes are coming!! Prepare for battle! :-)

I LOVE sleeping with my window open! It's still really cold (near freezing) overnight, so I have to resist the temptation most nights.

Glad to hear the training is going so well! Keep it up.

nice weather is the best. I swear I have Seasonal Affective Disorder or soemthing b/c I just gotta have sun;-)
and i hear ya w/your students. I felt the same when I taught 5th grade;-)

We never sleep with our windows open because Jerry is paranoid; however, if we did, the time for that here in FL has already passed.

Melissa said...

I love sleeping with the window open. My hubby? not so much. So when he's not here, up they go.

J said...

I try to do yoga on my rest days or XT days! I think it just makes for a good day and I feel like I did a lot to help my body heal! The nice weather definitely is awesome! I cant wait to get out of work!

I can imagine how attached you must get to those kids, especially being with them for so long. You sound like a great teacher.

Holly said...

It's hard saying good-bye to students! I still think of my NSHS kids almost every day - I miss them so much!

I wish today was as nice as yesterday - we're back to cloudy, super windy, and cool! :P

MCM Mama said...

Great job on the training! The weather sounds fabulous.

Julie said...

Love the list:) I think that it is fantastic that you can tell that you are getting sronger and faster:) Go you! I am hoping to feel the same improvements sometime soon!

Hey you! Here's one thing that makes ME smile: that YOU still read my blog! Thanks for your comment :)

And wow, nice weather you're having - better than Cali :D

Kelly said...

Yay for all good things! I know what you mean about the kids performances being tearjerkers-they are just so cute.

My first class is going to be 4th graders next year and thats the last year at my school- it's going to be weird to see my first class "graduate"... prob will be weirder when they are really graduating high school though haha

Aimee (I Tri To Be Me) said...

Yay for spring! Aww..I taught 5th grade before too and I remember tearing up at their "graduation."

Carly said...

Yay for warm weather! We had a nice stretch around here, but now it's cooler, although sunny. I want it to be in the 70s!

I hate when my students leave too! It is hard because there are some students that I take from K%-5th grade. The weather out here has been gorgeous too :) Have a wonderful weekend!
