Currently June

First of all, I have to say that I am in <3 with Farley's Currently design this month!  We have quite quickly become a soccer family.  It is all to blame on this guy.....

Once he started playing, I quickly learned how much I enjoyed the sport.  Now, we can't get enough.

Listening:  Everyone is still asleep in my house, which is completely rare.  The only sounds I am hearing are the birds chirping outside.  It is wonderful to just sit and work with that being the only sound.

Loving:  I feel like I have been saying this forever, but Grad School is really almost over.  I should be finished with my classes *hopefully* before the end of the month.  The actual last due date is July 31st, but I am hoping to get my booty in gear and get it all done ahead of time.  (And for those who have asked...yep, I went through the graduation ceremony in May, but had to finish up two summer classes to get my degree)

Thinking:  Next week my hubby and I are surprising our kiddos with a mini-vacation.  I love surprising my kids with a little vacation.  We are just waking them up in the morning, getting in the car and going.  :)

Wanting:  I know, I know, it's summer and I should enjoy my summer.  I definitely am, but I do wish I could get in to work on my classroom.  I have a ton of new ideas that I want to start getting ready for the new school year.

Needing:  We are in the process of giving my daughter's room a makeover.  She just got new furniture and bedding.  Now we just need to get all the decor and accessories so we can make it cozy and fun!

All Star:  I like to make people laugh and I like to diffuse situations with humor.  My hubby is the same way.  I am so glad we are on the same wavelength for that.  ;)

And with that, I will leave you with this funny!

  4. I want to get into my classroom too! I am in a new district, new school, new everything to me this coming year and when I saw my room it was a DISASTER! I am going to meet with my teaching partner tomorrow and I hope to start organizing and filing some as well when I am there. Enjoy the surprise vacay! How fun! Love the bedroom so far, I have so many things that would go with that this summer.
