Things I Love Thursday

Have you heard of Maria Dismondy? She is the children's author of Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun and The Juice Box Bully; great character education books.  Today, she is hosting a linky party of Things I Love.

I have had such a great last week of spring break that I feel like I have a lot that I love.

Things I Love (in no particular order)
I love that my husband is home after a week away.

I love watching my son dance to HeidiSongs Singable Songs.  My favorite is the letter J.

I love Pioneer Woman! This is my go to pasta recipe and this is what we are having tonight for dinner.  YUM!

I am enjoying the extra time to read.  I am currently reading this.  We are restructuring our intervention program and this book leads itself to self reflection and best practices.  I hope to dedicate a post to this soon.   Have you read it? If so, what are your thoughts?

Lastly, my son and I have enjoyed watching a pair of birds build the perfect nest on our patio cover.  Science in our own backyard.  :)

What do you love?  Anything in particular?



  1. My mouth is WATERING after reading through the recipes you linked up to. I must make those ribs! Thanks again for linking up! :) Maria

  2. I just absolutely love your comments you leave me. You are so sweet and encouraging. It has long been a dream of mine to become a published writer. I am just not sure yet how to go about (in what form or fashion and how it would be perceived), but one day...I hope.

    I'm going to have to read the book you've pictured in your post. Can't wait to hear more about it.

  3. I love phone calls from my grandsons! I'll have to let them know about HeidiSongs! Have a great weekend, Renee

  4. Thanks for the shout out, Mrs. Parker!!!! I love it!

  5. That is a fantastic book! We did a book study with it a few years ago at my school and we were even lucky enough to see Allington speak when he was in town. One of the biggest things I took from the book was that kids need to spend a LOT of time reading-so I have tried to add as much independent reading time to my day as I can. The book also got me thinking about how to get my kids reading more at home and over the summer.
