August Currently

Oh my! It's August! This is so scary! I always look forward to this fun linky party every month with Farley at Oh Boy Fourth Grade. Click here to link up!

I am LOVING that we have just about finalized our honeymoon plans! We are going to Antigua! This wedding thing has been so stressful, it feels really good to start checking things off of the list! I can't wait a vacation!

I can't believe I haven't blogged since the beginning of July. Ah : ( This month was so busy with CASA training, weekend trips, wedding planning, bunko, working at school and I even had a garage sale! I'm ready to get back in the swing of things!

I am WANTING to feel better! Back in May I had mono and was so miserable. And, I am feeling the same way again. It's terrible. I'm going next week to have blood work done and hopefully see what is going on. I'm having anxiety about starting off this school year sick. 

I am really NEEDING to work up at school. We have no air at school for the summer and with temperatures over 100, it is miserable. And, since I haven't felt good it has been hard for me to go up there. In the mean time I have been preparing everything on my computer and working on planning.

Back to School Must Haves
1. A First Day of School Outfit: Growing up I always got a new outfit for the first day of school. New shoes, new hairbow, the whole shabang! Even now, I still like having a new and cute outfit for the first day. I am still on the hunt for this years new outfit!
2. Snacks: I get so use to eating whenever during the summer that I feel like I'm starving when I start school back! So, I must have yummy snacks in my classroom for me to munch on. Some of my favorites are: Cheez Its, candy, and cereal. Healthy right?
3. Smelly Markers: I love smelly markers! I use them all the time for interactive writing. The kids who volunteer to come and write get a smelly smile on their hand. So, everyone wants to write! : )

Happy August everyone! 


  1. I always buy a new box of Mr. Sketch Smelly Markers each year! The kids love to use them for interactive writing, but I LOVE your idea of a smelly smile on their hand for participating! Yes, every teacher needs a new Back to School outfit and haircut! It's the little things that make our year start right!

  2. I still need to go buy some smelly markers for this year- they do make anchor charts so much more fun to create! :)

  3. I love your blog with the red boots, so cute! Bless you that you teach kindergarten with those precious babies! I taught it for many years until I broke my leg and couldn't get in the floor with them any longer and it broke my heart! Glad I got to visit your adorable blog!

  4. It is unusual for schools to not have air conditioners? How yuck for you. Hope you are feeling better soon. I must get some smelly markers soon

  5. Take care of yourself and be kind about not blogging if you are not 100%. I am your newest follower and love your blog design.

  6. Ooooohhhh, Antigua sounds awesome! We went to Cabo and loved it.
    I still go back to school shopping every August, just like when I was a kid :-)

  7. Your blog design is so cute!! I found your blog through the link. We are kinda like neighbors. I live in Louisiana and Texas is just a hop, skip, jump away. I am also your newest follower. I can't wait to read more post. If you get a chance I would love for you to come on over and check out my blog. Us southerns need to stick together {ha!}.


  8. So I did this currently, and while following the rule of 3, I found a blog that took me to this: a link-up list of teacher blogs BY STATE! She even made cute buttons for each teacher to put on their blog. I just had to share it with all the fellow TX Teachers I follow =)
