You're Foolin...... It's July ALREADY!?!?!?

Where o Where has June gone?  That was the fastest month! Maybe because I was busy most of it but come on, let summer linger on! :)

I took a little super long hiatus from blogging. Not on purpose. Just life gets in the way. However, I may be blogging a lot in the next few months. School is no longer "routine" for me anymore. I will be teaching 6th and 7th grade!!!!!! I'm super excited about this change but may need some help from blogger friends :)  I guess I'll eventually need to change my blog name.

Before I get to any of that, I must do the fun currently from Farley's Page. Go give her some love :)

Listening: It isn't summer until Big Brother begins. However I will say I do not get into it like I used to. So I may still attend a premiere party but don't go all crazy over it like I used to.

Loving: I have already read a ton of books this summer. Since I will have my sixth graders for the third year in a row, I know them well. I also know the majority of them need to read more. On the last day of school, I challenged them to read 800 pages over the summer. I thought it would be fun to track my pages read too. I've more than doubled that so far. I just love to read!!!

Thinking: UGH LAUNDRY!!!! I absolutely hate doing my laundry. I don't have to do it often since it is just me but bleck!!!!

Wanting: This is where you all come in! What kind of teacher bag do you use? I've had just a black adidas backpack for the last 5 or so years. I like it because it frees up my hands to carry things and it is large. But I'm ready for something else. So tell me what you have and why I should buy it!

Needing: I LOVE WILD CHERRY PEPSI! I could totally go for one right now. I've tried to cut down on pop but I'm craving it today!!!

4th Plans: So my flight leaves at 8am on Saturday and the airport is 2 hours away. Therefore, I am staying at a hotel close to the airport on Friday night so I don't have to wake up as early. My 4th plans will consist of driving, shopping, and sleeping in a hotel. Fun Fun---but the beach awaits! :)

I guess I should go put that laundry in the wash......

Halfway through the School year...almost

Seriously?! I really wanted to keep up with this blog. Obviously that has not happened. But of course, I love me some Currently from Farley and since it is break and I have some time, of course I had to get some blog action in :)

I am absolutely loving being on break. It's amazing how much more relaxed I feel. I have my lesson plans completed through January 24 and I feel good about it!!!! Of course I would LOVE for the break to last longer but this part of the year always seems to fly by. It's the downhill end of the school year.

I've been feeling a bit blah for a couple of days. My mom had the flu on Christmas Eve so I keep hoping I don't get it. I've slept a lot and haven't done too much. I would love to wake up and feel good tomorrow so I can go to the gym and then clean my house. The gym may not happen though as a snow storm is coming and I do no drive in the snow. I"ll take an indoor, at home workout though!

If anyone teaches fourth or fifth grade has a good unit on Penguins or Polar Bears, would you mind sharing? I'm looking for something for fourth grade. Thanks in advance :)
