Goodbye Summer and HELLO Fall!
I am now beginning my third full week of school and things are busier than ever! Thank heavens for Labor Day. We've already had walk-throughs and major meetings, so it doesn't feel like an easy transition into the new school year, it feels like I'm already really behind!
Other than that, I'm totally exhausted from my Kinders. If only to bottle all of that energy... Slowly but surely, they're getting the hang of this school thing - except for lunch. They stink at EVERYTHING to do with lunch time.
On to something way more exciting, Currently! I'm linking up with the fabulous Farley Here's my addition to the Currently family.
Listening: The quiet noises of a sleeping house. Love :)
Loving: This one is kind of stupid, but I've recently discovered the joy of my huge IKEA bag. I don't know why I haven't thought to use it before! This thing is huge and I can shove my teacher bag, my breast pump bag, my lunch box, my beverages, and Max's diaper bag all inside of it. One trip from the car. Score!
Thinking: My thoughts are with Yolanda's family. I am so sad to hear about her passing. Her blog, Oceans of First Grade Fun, was one of the first blogs I followed and loved. I loved her spirit, and she always had me chuckling while reading her posts. She was an amazing teacher and person. She will be missed.
Wanting: Max's molar to come in already! He goes from being a happy camper to a weepy mess in a hot minute. Poor guy :(
Needing: I have so much to print, laminate, and cut. I need another week of preplanning to get it all done!
1. I can't wait to see the Grand Canyon. An American wonder that I want to visit and marvel at with my family.
2. Way before The Lord of the Rings movies came out, I've wanted to visit New Zealand. It's so beautiful. Something about New Zealand just speaks to me, and I've always wanted to visit or maybe live there one day.
3. I need to visit Japan one day. The culture, the architecture, the FOOD! Love it! (I wish I spoke Japenese, though. It makes me nervous to travel anywhere where I don't speak the language!)
That's all folks!
Go off and have a relaxing Labor Day!
