This morning my son asked, "Mama, what day is it?".
I, of course, replied, "Thursday, August 1st".
He shouted "WHAT? YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! It's August already!"
I kind of felt the same when I realized what day it was too.
One wonderful thing about it being August 1st though is that I get to link up with Farley for her August Currently.
Listening - My daughter is watching Pirates of the Caribbean as I type this. I love these movies!
Loving - Summer isn't over yet and I plan on enjoying the last few days I have with my kiddos. We are going to do some fun things like mini-golf, play at parks, make homemade big pretzels, etc.
Thinking - I can't believe school starts in 12 days. That is CRAZY!!
Wanting - It is so hard to go in and finish my room. I have been very distracted lately with other things and I wish my room fairy would come and finish my room for me. When I was little sometimes the room fairy would come to room at night and clean it for me. :) Where is that darn room fairy when I need her? She could also come clean some rooms in my house too.....I'm not picky!
Needing - One of the things that has been distracting me is my darn printer. I don't actually think it is my printer, but something is happening with the printer and computer and I am not able to print. In fact, today I went and bought a new printer because after two days I couldn't figure out what else it could be but the printer. Except I set up the new printer and the same thing is happening. Grrrrrrr.........hard to finish my room when I still need to print and laminate things from my computer. My hubby has promised to call Apple tomorrow and hopefully they will have some answers for us.
Back 2 School Must Haves -
1. A good bag - Just like Farley, I love me a good bag. My favorite school bag is the organizing utility tote from Thirty-One. Here is my new one that I bought for school:
It is hard to see it in the picture, but it says Mrs. Pauley on the front.
2. Sharpie Pens - My FAVORITE writing utensil. Can't write in my calendar or make many, many lists without them!
I LOVE this activity. Kids always love the David books and this is a great way to introduce peacemakers and peacebreakers. We make her anchor charts and hang them by our rules and then we also make the adorable craft in the pack. Click on the image to grab it for yourself.
And now, I think I shall go to bed. I will be reading everyone's currently tomorrow. Can't wait to see your back to school must haves!
