August Currently

Am I the only one wondering where the summer has gone?!?!? Holy moly!
It's AUGUST!!!
I only have a few more weeks until I will back in the swing of things. Does anyone else have that feeling that they forget how to teach over the summer?
I told my hubby last night that I love/hate his birthday. Love it because it is a day to celebrate the amazing man that has been brought into my life. Hate it because it reminds me that summer is almost over. :'-(
Today, I am linking up with Farley over at Oh Boy 4th Grade to show you what is currently going on in my little life.
Listening: There is nothing going on around me right now. It's kind of relaxing. Except for the buzzing of the air conditioners, that's really all I hear.
Loving: Everywhere you look there are back to school ads, sales, and displays. I love it!!! :-) I too am in the back to school mode.
Thinking: My closet has been driving me crazy this summer. I have too many clothes.....(I know I shouldn't complain) However, it is like an avalanche every time I go to open it. 
Wait! Don't go in there! Oh no!
Wanting: We (my fellow teachers and I) have not been able to get into our classroom because we are building a new school and it isn't ready yet. So, I have been anxiously awaiting an email to say that we are finally allowed in. I may check my email 5 billion trillion times a day.
Needing: The big Back to School sale is happening tomorrow and Tuesday (Aug. 3rd and 4th) over at Teachers Pay Teachers. I have a few items that I would like to get done before the sale. However, I don't know if this will happen or not.
Back to School RAK: I love this idea! I always give my teacher friends goodies around the holidays. I have never thought about giving gifts at the beginning of the year. I will most likely put together a small bag of goodies (either candy or cookies) with something else. I also plan on helping out some teachers at my school get their rooms ready.
This is what I am up to currently for the month of August. Can't wait to read what every one else is up to!



  1. I'm all about stocking up in the TPT sale! I should get a new product or two done for the sale, too! Best wishes for a great school year!

  2. When is your hubby's b-day? My hubby's birthday is August 4th and then I go back to school on the 10th. Not sure if I am ready. Summer goes way too fast!!! Good luck with your new school. I experienced the same issue several years ago. We were moving to a new school and it wasn't done so we had to start at another school for 6 weeks. Our district at the time was half year round schools and half traditional. It was crazy, but it all turned out ok!


    1. His birthday is August 9th. Oh my you go back early. I don't go back until August 31st. Summer does go by too fast. I also get out of school and start planning his birthday because I know in a blink of an eye it will be here. It's crazy. That would be crazy for the teachers and the kids. So far they think that it will be on schedule so I just hope that it is. :-) Thanks for commenting!

  3. I hear ya about loving back to school time! At least I know I'm not the only one! I have been stalking the dollar spot and back to school section at Target..I get a little giddy just thinking about it! :) This if my first visit to your blog and I love your design! I hope you can get into your classroom soon, we were in the same boat last year so I know exactly how you feel!

    1. Thanks for visiting! You are like me, I LOVE the dollar spot. So addicting.... I hope so too! :-) Thanks for commenting.

  4. Hey!! Your blog is adorable too! And I'm right there with you! I totally need to create more resources for my class!
