July Currently

When and how did this happen?
I always feel the the 4th of July is the middle point of summer, and that it is scary! 

I am linking up with Farley at Oh Boy Fourth Grade for her monthly linky party. Click the link below to visit her blog or here to link up! 

The Rangers lost, ugh.

I love summer because I have a chance to become involved in things besides school. I am training right now to be a Court Appointed Special Advocate for a child in need. I am absolutely in love with this organization and I can't wait to get started. Click HERE to learn about National CASA.

I was just able to go back into my classroom a few weeks ago. OH MY! I had to pack up most of my stuff so everything could be cleaned and then all of my furniture was moved around. I barely recognized my room.  I need to get busy! Which makes me want to go to Lakeshore Learning and buy new things for my classroom! Also, did you know that some teachers have never heard of Lakeshore Learning? I know, right?  If this is you please click this link NOW.

My save the dates are printed and ready to go! I just need to get everything stamped and addressed. Easier said than done.

My tip is to order yourself an Erin Condren Lesson Planner. I love mine! It really helps me to have everything in one place. Find something that helps keep you organized and stay on top of it. 

Have a Happy 4th of July! Thank you to all of those who fight to protect our freedom each day. God Bless America! 


  1. I love how you ended your post. I come from a family of military people and am so grateful to all who fight to protect our country. They deserve so much recognition.
    I get the mid summer blues right around the 4th of July. It's such a great time of year, but unfortunately it is the same time when Back to School adds come out. :'(
    I want summer to go more slowly. I am enjoying it way too much!

  2. I love finding other Texas bloggers! I'm showing you some bloglovin love and would love for you to head over to my second grade journal to check it out.

  3. Love your little blog, so glad to have discovered it! I am totally in the same boat as you, feeling stressed out about all the things I need to get done, but still trying to enjoy summer while I can!
