September Currently

I'm linking up with Farley, over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for the September Currently!
Listening to 27 Dresses.  My teenagers are watching some sort of Katherine Heigl marathon. 
I'm totally ok with it.  We are a house of chicks!
Loving a four day week.  Even though they some how seem to be L-O-N-G-E-R than any other week.
Thinking about training the firsties on all the math games.  We are still not really good at staying on task, minding our own business, and working quietly.  (shocker!)  Any way I need to teach them the math games....  a little unsure... I guess I can just take the plunge!
Wanting another awesome year!  I had an amazing year last year, and I'd just like a repeat!  I LOVE my job, so I think this will be fairly easy!
Needing nothing, I am so lucky already, I have an awesome family, great co-workers and kiddos, and wonderful first graders!  What more could a person need?!
 Three Trips  1. Hawaii - I wanted to go when my daughter was there (navy girl) but now she's in San Diego.
2.  Key West - I've been to Florida dozens of times, but I've never made it all the way to the tip!
3. Bora Bora - I see the celebrity pics at all those resorts, but I have massive motion sickness, so it's a no!  Especially on a single mom teacher salary!
What are you up to?


  1. Hey! I love the movie 27 dresses and that we have a 4 day work week! I am also thinking about school but remember to take things slow in the beginning. You have all year to work on math games but they do need to focus first. I teach first grade and I know it can be super tough at the beginning of the year. We also have more things in common. My brother is in the Navy and is stationed in Hawaii so I picked that as one of my trips. We are saving up big time to go next summer! Glad I found your blog!

    1. Thanks! I hope you have a great start to your school year!

  2. Love me some Katherine Heigl movies! Sounds like a great end to a long weekend.
    Oh boy - teaching routines. That all starts for me on Wednesday...

    Fun and Fearless in First

    1. Wednesday!!! I wish!! We are on day 13! The little people and I nearly roasted last week when it was 100+ degrees. I wish we waited until after Labor Day! Have a great year!

  3. I love your blog! Super cute and my girls and I are water babies so this is right up our alley! I hope you have another amazing year, as well!

    1. Glad you found me! I love the water, too bad I'm land locked!! UGHHH!!! Kansas!!!

  4. Hey I spent a summer backpacking through the south pacific when I was a young teacher. If you can manage the airfare, it's not that expensive to stay in hostels, and it's totally beautiful. I rode to Bora Bora on a cargo ship.
    I just found your blog through Farley's linkup. Your blog looks great BTW.

  5. I love the idea of hosteling around the south Pacific! I am practically an empty nester, so who knows what the summer will bring!
