August Currently!

Who said August could arrive so quickly??? Here is my plea...
Summer please stay F-O-R-E-V-E-R! 
I really like Back To School time, BUT.... I L-O-V-E summer!!!! Please don't go! 

Wishful thinking... Anywho....It's Currently time, August-style!
Here is what is going on in my casa...

If I am not at the baseball field with my boys, we are watching baseball movies or baseball games. A little sick-o, I know, but 'tis my life, right now. So, my little guy is watching the Sandlot. And I get to post my Currently!

My classroom is coming together. I have been going in to set up a couple hours each morning. I like going in early, when no one is around, and getting out by lunch. I feel like I have accomplished something and I still have a lot of hours left in my day. That's a win-win in my book.

Where did the summer go? I can't believe it is Back To School time already! I love it! I hate it! I love it! I could go on and on. You get it!

I want to extend summer (who doesn't). I also cross my fingers, toes, eyes, legs and anything else I can cross and wish for a great group of kiddos this year. And parents too, of course!!

I am SO close to finishing the last few pages of my first grade interactive language notebook. I want it DONE by the end of the weekend! It has to happen! No excuses! No distractions! It's going to happen. Now that I have written it to the world, it will be true!

I "officially" start Aug. 11th! 
Kids first day is Aug. 12th! 
Let's be honest, I have been going in the last two weeks little by little. Anyone that can get their room ready in one day is my hero. I can't do it. I won't do it! I like taking my time. It will be PERFECT on the 12th in the morning! Now the afternoon of the 12th...well, that is a different story!

What does your August Currently look like? Make sure to join in all the fun and link up!


  1. My son loves the movie Sandlot! We watch it often as well. Be sure to post pics of your classroom when it's done. Enjoy your last days of summer.

  2. That is soon. Good luck! Hopefully you get some good mid-year vacation days. Or you must have gotten out in May. The Sandlot is hilarious.

  3. I can't believe you guys go in one day before the kids! We are there in trainings for 2 weeks before they arrive! I can't wait until I can get started on my room-I have the same plan for next week get it done in the mornings. :)

    Not Just Child's Play

  4. Your boys and baseball sounds like my boys and racing. We are either at the track or some kind of racing is on the Life as the mom of boys. I agree I can't even imagine trying to get my room ready in 1 day. I am way to OCD for that to work out. Enjoy your last week of vacation!
