Currently - June!

03 June 2015
It is finally June!  Our endless winter has ended.  School however does not end until June 26th!   All of the social media posts I see about teachers being done... thanks for rubbing it in!  You all make me jealous.  I do however LOVE my group of first graders.  They are kind, helpful, and appreciative kiddos.  They are what I envisioned teaching to be like, when I decided to be a teacher.   I don't want them to leave me.

On to Farley's Currently Linky for June:

Listening: Now that I am a new homeowner, I am addicted to HGTV.  Also, I have not really figured out Verizon FiOs, so I am sticking to the channel that turns on when I turn on the TV.  I had Optimum at my old house, but FiOs ended up being cheaper and let me pick the channels I wanted.  Hopefully, no one ever comes over who wants to watch sports...they will be out of luck.

Loving:  As I said above, my class is so sweet.  I feel so lucky and love going to work everyday.   I am going to miss these guys.   It might also help that I have a rare, low class size of 18!  This is not the norm for my district.  It just happened to be a small group of first graders and I had three students move.  It is just so wonderful for small group instruction (centers and guided reading).

Thinking:  I am thinking about decorating 24/7!  I should be pinning my products on Pinterest, but instead I am obsessed with decor pins.   You can check out my latest pins by clicking {HERE}.

Wanting:  I just want to do it all!  I am doing Whole30 again, trying to go to the gym, unpack, decorate this house, teach, take care of four pets, and work on TpT.   Guess what, I cannot do it all and still actually sleep.  So for now, I have been focusing on Whole30 and unpacking/decorating.  I get to the gym once a week and of course I still have to teach.  I actually tried leaving my cats at my parents' house while I had a few rooms painted here and my Greta escaped and fell in their canal! Thankfully,  my aunt and uncle saved her (they live next door).   So, now the cats are with me and of course they stepped in paint.

Needing:  I need to get back to work on my TpT products.  I have a few that need updates and a ton of ideas on my "To Do List."   Did you see this article about TpT?

Summer Loving:   I LOVE summer.  I love the sun, I love the warmth, I love no alarm, I love having time to read, I just love it all.   I cannot wait to go back to Vegas this summer and see all my TpT friends and meet new ones. 

Please, check out Farley's post and donate to a cause that of course I support!

Happy June!


  1. My husband and I just bought a house in February and are doing a bunch of renovations and decorating. I LOVE HGTV right now!
    I am not envious of your end date. I have two days left and the kiddos and I are so ready for summer! Hopefully your last few weeks go smoothly and you can enjoy the end of the year with your kids!

  3. A class of 18 would be a dream - I'm so glad you have a sweet group! I'm a whole-30-for-life follower because it just makes me feel good! I've been following your house adventure and trying to get inspired for mine! Enjoy the last few weeks, Jen

  4. So many of my fellow bloggers have bought new homes - it's putting a bug in me to do the same or at least make some upgrades to this 18 year abode! Good luck and have a wonderful summer!

  5. I am sooo looking forward to no alarm! We're down to single digits: 9 more days! See you in Vegas!

  6. I love reading about your classroom and new home renovations. The year for you is almost over - think about us Aussies who are in the winter months and have even longer to go until the end of the year.
