CuRreNtlY - JuNe

As of 3 o'clock today, I am officially on summer vacation!
What! What! Woo-Hoo!

Summer (for teachers) really began today, however, I went to work.
Thanks to teaching at a Title 1 school, we got $paid$ to work on our grade level syllabi for next year. I am so relieved to have this document in the can. My team rocks. We knocked it out in 4 hours. Now, we don't have to worry about it in August when we are are too busy to work on it! Yippers :)

And you know the crazy thing? Only two grade levels showed up today to work on this: the Kindergarten team and the first grade team. We rarely ever get opportunities where we are paid to work (not during school time.) I can't believe none of the other grade levels showed up. Their loss, I guess. Did I mention we got paid?? BANANAS!

Farley's got her Currently up for June. I am SO angry with myself that I spent yesterday cleaning. I could have been in the top 25!

Anyway, here's my currently:

I would love, love, LOVE to go to London for the Olympics this summer.
Watching the games live is so awesome!
I went to the Atlanta Games in '96 and had such an amazing time.
I'd love to go to another games again in my lifetime!

My man and I went to Miami for our anniversary in April. 
We had such a lovely time. We stayed at an unbelievable hotel in the heart of Miami, walked along South Beach, ate some fabulous food, and visited the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. Fun, fun, fun!
It was a much needed getaway.

I would love to spend a week in my favorite place, the Keys.
Relaxing, swimming, kayaking, snorkeling, and feeding the tarpon.
Leaving all my cares behind.

However, I'd be totally happy anywhere as long as I am with my family and friends.
Even, if it is in little Vero Beach.


  1. I need to organize my Pinterest boards too - I didn't realize how important Pinterest would be or how big it would grow, so I started with just a few boards, now I want to divide up my Language Arts, Math etc. I can't believe you're thinking lesson plans on your first day of summer vacation - that's a little too much dedication :)

  3. Congrats on being on summer vacation!! I have been on for a couple of weeks but all I do is homework for my masters classes!! Zero fun!

  4. Yay for summer vacation. Hope you feel better soon. Love the KEYS

  5. I just found your break through Farley's linky and I'm your newest follower :) I'm jealous you're done... I still have 2 more student days and a teacher day. We had the "option" of coming in one day early (before pre-planning started) last year to work on our pacing guides (which I assume is similar to what you were doing.) I think every team came in though. How could you say no to extra money!?! Enjoy your summer!!

  6. I'm going to the keys for my honeymoon in a little over a week. I can't wait!

  7. I am SO jealous that you're already on summer vacation. You lucky girl, you :)) I have 3 more weeks!
    You're probably a lot smarter than me :) but I found out last weekend that taking 3 Reactines over a day and drinking several glasses of wine at dinner is a very very bad idea :) Just saying ... ha ha.
    Take care.
