Currently August!

Can you believe your eyes?! IT. IS. AUGUST. Where in the world did the summer go? I am excited, nervous, happy, it is bittersweet. I am excited to see some of my last year's kiddos as well as meet the new kids I will have this year. Holy COW! I am linking up with Farley from Oh' Boy 4th Grade for Currently August.

Currently listening to John Mayer's cover of XO. This was originally Beyonce's song but he does a great rendition. I love me some Beyonce, she can really relate to a girl's heart! I also love me some soft John Mayer! This was the perfect mix to clean house to! :)

I am LOVING my last few days of summer. I have been teacher shopping, relaxing, treating myself, spending time with my wonderful husband, watching reality TV, making TpT products, working out, and pretty much doing whatever I feel like doing. It is WONDERFUL!

I am constantly thinking about how I want to set my classroom up. I am wanting change and keep replaying them in my head. I guess I won't stop thinking about it until I go in on Monday huh?

I WANT a regular sleeping schedule. I have been quite the night owl lately. Usually I am out by 10pm at the latest during the school year because I am WIPED. I have been staying up until sometimes 2am! Whew! I also need to be consistent with the gym. I need to form a habit before I go back to school. Not to mention, my jeans are just a wee bit tighter than when I was teaching each day!

I NEED to start drinking more water. I make it my personal goal to drink 64 oz of water a day. I am terrified to get a UTI and I know that a lot of teachers do. I never crave water during a meal and always want sweet tea. I looooove sweet tea, probably because we didn't have it in South Dakota as a Northern State when I was growing up. Now I am in sweet tea country here in Texas! Anyway, I have to add lemon or lime or it is not appealing to me!

My first day back for work days start on August 18th. I will be in my room before then, slowly doing a little bit each day so I don't overwhelm myself. Then, I get to meet my littles on the 25th. I am very excited. Until then, I am just praying for the impact I can make on their life.

Thanks for reading, happy teaching!



  1. I had my first BTS dream/nightmare. I was rearranging the room only to wake up and rearrange the room. Yikes! I hope it isn't an indication of what is coming! I didn't realize how much I wanted a sweet tea until I started reading your post. I am going to have to get me some! I love it, but usually do half cut. Hope your year is great.

  2. I always stay up too late over the summer and then it makes it even harder to get used to waking up early in the mornings! Jealous that you don't start till late August!

  3. I definitely need to get back onto a regular workout schedule! I work year around so my sleep schedule stays the same but I get a little lazy with working out occasionally.

    Good Luck!
