Currently for June...

I don't know how I missed this last month, but here we are in June and it's time for my CURRENTLY post!  I'm linking up with Farley's "Oh Boy 4th Grade" blog for this Linky Party.  If you haven't checked out her blog, you absolutely must!  It's so much fun!

And now... for my June currently...

1.  So... I'm currently listening to the hum of the computer.  It's been one of those days!  I finally had some time to upload a few new products onto TpT, so I thought I'd get on my blog and do some updating over here as well.  Here I am... many, many hours later... listening to this hummmmmmmmm of the computer.  It's actually quite annoying.  I need some music.

2.  I'm currently LOVING my class this year!  I am in denial that I'm going to have to say goodbye to those 32 adorable little faces on Thursday.  They have worked so hard and come so far this year, it's amazing!  We also put on a little play last week for parents and students, and I couldn't have been more proud of them.  There's nothing like that feeling of pride you feel when your students rise to the occasion and SHINE!  They were absolutely amazing!  

3.  I'm currently THINKING about all of the things I need to do this week before I lock up my classroom for the summer.  I'm sure you're all familiar with the endless amount of paperwork that the end of the year brings... well, I've been so busy with other things these past few weeks, I have barely started any of it.  I'm not looking forward to it, but I'm anxious to get it all done and check it off my "to do" list! 

4.  I'm currently WANTING to be done with this week so I can get a head start on my vacation!  This will be the first summer that I won't be working summer school in probably three or four years!  I'm so happy to be able to stay home and spend the summer lovin' on my family!  Woo-hoo!  xoxo
Here's my family!  Me, my awesome stepson Nicholas (who just graduated from high school on Friday!), my amazing husband, Matt, and our three littlest ones - Blake (8), Olivia (2), and Madeleine (4).  

5.  I'm currently NEEDING a break!  It's been a long haul these past few months, and after the craziness of school, kids, baseballs season, and end-of-year parties, graduations, and performances... this mama of four needs a little R&R!  Bring on the beach vacation!

6.  My 3 Vacay Esssentials:  For the first time in a few years, we are actually taking a real family vacation this year!  We've rented a cute little beach cottage in Santa Cruz and will be spending our days playing at the beach and Boardwalk, and relaxing and barbequing at the beach house at night!  So... for this little family vacay, my top 3 essential items are: 

1) Cute and comfy flip-flops 

2) A NEW pair of sunglasses (I'm totally going to treat myself to a new pair!) ;)

3) Lots of sunblock for the whole family.  I'm always lathering everyone up... so I'll be bringing a boat load of that, too. 

And... that about wraps it up!  Happy summer, everyone!  We're almost there!


  1. I hope you have a great time with your family this summer! Enjoy your beach cottage. What a fun way to spend the summer!

  4. Your family is adorable! Your vacation for the summer sounds AMAZING- Hope you enjoy your last day and enjoy the summer :)


  5. Girl, I just wanted to end my school year! This was a very challenging class but on that last day of school I teared up a little because even though they were the most difficult in terms of behavior, they were the hardest working group I have ever seen!!!
