Currently: July

I cannot believe today is July 1st!!!!
In a little over a month - August 3rd, to be exact - my new set of
babies arrive in my room.
I can't believe it is almost here!
My goal is to enjoy July to the fullest potential - even the 5 days of inservice I have
coming during this month!

I am linking up with Farley again this month. 
That means I have been doing this blogging thing on a somewhat routine basis
for a month now!  YEA, me!!!!
More on that coming....

So currently, I am......


Listening - to Sports Center.  It's a staple at our house.  Usually at this point in the year we are focused on baseball - Atlanta Braves and Texas Rangers (the hubs is from Texas).  However, this year, we are also focused on World Cup soccer.  My girl plays and loves soccer.  I know NOTHING, but have learned SOME over the last 9 years she has played.  We are enjoying the highlights from last night's game!

Loving - that we are headed to Nashville in a few days.  My BIL and SIL live in Nashville and we always head there for a great fireworks show and fantastic shopping.  The cousins love being together and it is a great way to get away!  A big bonus is I get to go to McKay's Book Store and LOAD up!!! I have $100+ in store credit that is burning a hole in my pocket! I am going to print off my Amazon wish lists and see what I can get!

Thinking - I am very overwhelmed with this new world of blogging, twittering, Instagramming and the like that I have become a part of this last month.  It is wonderful and I realize even more of things I need to be doing in order to be the teacher my kiddos deserve.  I also realize I can't compare myself to others.  I need to realize what I can do and what is the most important thing for me to do NOW - like writing those common assessments!

Wanting/Needing - a few extra weeks to my summer.  I sat down the other night and realized I really have only a few weeks left completely to myself.  I have a week coming up of inservice with my fantastic team.  I have a week I have set aside to work in my room while the kiddos are at camp.  It is slowly slipping away....

All Star - I have LOVED being a mom this summer.  My kids may not agree that I am an all-star mom at this moment, but I have really made an effort this summer to be present for them.  When they want to do something - we do it.  We have taken day trips. We have been to Sonic almost EVERY day this summer.  We have been swimming with friends.  We have had movie nights and sleepovers.  It has been a fantastic summer just being with them. I know I don't have many more summers with them, so I am enjoying this one to the fullest!

Be sure to check out what others are CURRENTLY doing and 
meet some great new friends!

  3. It sounds like you have had an amazing summer. Kids come back on August 3rd for me too and I also have in-service days at the end of July. Here's to a good rest of the summer. :-)

  4. Hehe, my boyfriend LOVES SportsCenter too! It is always on the TV, so I feel like I have become much more knowledgeable on sports (which I'm usually pretty uninterested in) due to it. TV osmosis!
