August Currently Linky Party

Well now that I am back in the Land of the Bloggers, I thought I would join up in this month's Currently Linky Party hosted by none other than the amazing Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade.  Feel free to join in on the fun by clicking on the button below

So on with the show....

So to elaborate on my entries:

  • Listening:  
    • My husband insists on watching NASCAR, thus by default I found myself rooting for Jeff Gordon (#24).  Now I am not a die hard fan, and I would not die if I didn't see the race, but picking my battles I decided to make the best of it and enjoy the show.
  • Loving:
    • I have been working in my classroom since mid July so I am very excited to finally get the school year started.  I moved into a room which was vacant last year & the walls looked yellowish of course I had to paint them, and that was just the tip of the iceberg.  The final product is posted on my blog.
  • Thinking:  
    • I have crafting ADD...I will start a project and not finish it once I realize I can do it, this even goes for posting on my blog..  I don't know what it is, but I can't seem to finish any project (besides painting my room).  This year I am working hard on changing this has been a long journey, and it hasn't really come to fruition, but I am trying at least.
  • Needing:
    • My little brother is finally getting married!!!  She is a great girl & I cannot wait until she is officially family.  Because of this I am hosting with my mom & sister her bridal shower.  Her theme is pink, white, & burlap with Sunflowers - kindof laid back country.  I finally got the venue secured & the date now to use the cute Mason Jar clip art I found to create the invitations for the anticipated event.
  • 1st days:
    • Contractually we were required to report back to campus on July 28th.
    • Meet the Teacher night was on August 1st (see previous blog for specifics)
    • Kiddos back on campus: August 4th.
Well this has helped my "Thinking" section & I hope I can turn a new leaf and continue on this path.  So, now there is only 19 hours and counting before my students hit my classroom door and the fun begins.

Good luck everyone...this will be a great school year...I know it!!!

  2. Good luck on your first day back! We don't start back up until the end of August around here. :)

    1. I don't think I would be able to wait that long. Enjoy your kiddos!!
