August *Currently*

I'm linking up with Farley for her August Currently.  Stop by Oh Boy, 4th Grade to link up! :)

Listening: After a long day at the zoo visiting the animals and running for shelter from the rain, it's wonderful to hear the sound of precious silence while I sit on my comfy couch. :)

Loving: After trying to grow my hair out for the past two and a half years, I finally asked myself, "Why?"  I have curly hair, so short is simple.  I'm loving my new haircut and a few highlights to brighten my look. 

Thinking: I have so much to do before school starts, like organize the playroom, donate toys that are no longer touched by the kids and squeeze in one last camping trip! 

Wanting: We have some new teachers starting at school this year because of additional sections of various grade levels being added.  I'm fortunate enough to mentor 2 of the new teachers and 1 of the second-year teachers in our building.  Looking forward to meeting the newbies on Monday, July 11th at the Mentor-Mentee Luncheon!

Needing: My previous Reading Room I shared with another Reading Specialist is now becoming a 2nd grade classroom.  I'll be in a new, much smaller room this year.  I need to get in there and organize ASAP!

1st Day You & Kids: I can't believe I go back to work two weeks from today for a Teacher's Institute.  The kids will be returning close behind us. 

Summer, please slow down!


  1. Wow! You go back on a Friday and the kids come the following Monday??? I've never heard of anything like that! This is my 12th year, and every single year, I must be back at work for an entire week of prefessional development and meetings prior to the kids coming.

    1. Ha, it's sickening, right?! We keep going back earlier and earlier. ;)

    2. Don't forget to check out our "Blog with Us" tab to link up with us. :)

  2. I love your blog. I am like you that summer is going fast, but at the same time, I love Fall.

    1. Thanks, Jasmine! ;) Yes, summer is flying but Fall is a favorite, too. :) Check out our "Blog with Us" tab if you want to link up with us. Happy Friday!

  3. It sounds like you're going to have a busy year! Good luck getting your new room all prepped and ready for the school year!

    1. Thanks, Kristin! I'm ready to get started on my room and begin the school year. :)

  4. My first inservice is THIS Friday, the 8th. With students on the 14th. Today I will go and work some more on my room. I couldn't sleep last night because I just wanted it to still be summer, but it really isn't. So much to do today!


I would love to hear from you, so please leave a comment. Come back for a visit sometime soon, too! :)
