Currently June!

I'm linking up with Farley from Oh Boy 4th Grade again for yet another Currently post! June is always bittersweet because it is so close to summer, yet I'm about to let my most favorite class yet go onto second grade! This year truly has been a blessing and my kids are so sweet.

Listening: To the young living diffuser. Currently diffusing is Thieves from YL. This is one of my most favorite oil because it has so many uses! Mostly, I'm sitting next to it so that I can make sure my immune system is in check for these last few days of school! I feel like everyone and their mother is out of school except me! Anywhoooo...If you don't know much about essential oils. Let me just tell you about Thieves! I LOVE the story behind it and how it got its name. Long ago, when people died from bubonic plague, grave diggers used to place a blend of oil on a cloth and place it over their face while stealing. They never once caught a plague. This is why Thieves is believed to protect against germs and keep your immune system in check. Cool right?! I thought so.

Loving: My end of the year gifts! I put End of the year gifts off until the last minute this year but I decided on beach balls and bubble wands. I am so excited to see the kids' faces:) I plan to write their name on the beach ball with fancy letters and let them pass their balls around to sign as a keepsake. Afterward, we will throw them around the room for a real beach party!

Thinking: About what kind of car my husband and I will purchase in the near future! As you already know, Houston, and surrounding areas were about washed out by massive flood waters this past week! During the storm, our car received tons of water damage. Water up to the steering wheel, you guessed it---car=totaled. SOOOOOO. That means new car time for us. Any suggestions? Speaking of floodwater, Farley has a "donate" button on her Currently post where you can donate to WAG. Tons of pets were washed away from their owners in the midst of the devastation. Feel free to donate if you feel it call to your heart.

Wanting: To start my summer reading list. I don't have a huge list, however, I am excited to have some spare time to read. I'm in the process of reading Paper Towns and Allegiant right now but am open to suggestions!

Needing: to be better at devotions! I am also looking for good devotionals to read. I've been off kilter a tad bit and need to get it back in my routine to spend some quality time with the Lord. It sure is refreshing to be back on the right track!

Summer Lovin' : Summer is right around the corner for me after Friday! I plan to relax by reading, have coffee dates with lots of friends, great conversation, perhaps float the river in New Braunfels, and I suppose hit the gym more regularly!

Next time you hear from me I will be loving the summer agenda and having a blast! Can't wait! For now, check out all of the other bloggers who have already started their summer fun!

  3. Good luck finding a great new car! I am currently car shopping as well...But it's for a mini van this! We need the space for our growing family, but it is definitely less fun than car shopping!
