Currently: June

It's time to link up with Farley for her monthly Currently!
I'm sure many think it's relaxing to sit by the pool, but when my three kids and a few friends join them, add a husband who's leading chicken's a little stressful! :O)

Why does the end of the year get so CRAZY??!! I can't wait til this mayhem is over! Awards, report cards, cum folders, packing up the room, end of soccer season, birthday parties, dance recitals, retirement parties, award ceremonies, performances, teacher gifts, the list goes on and on... It seems like no matter how organized I try to be, there's always something waiting for me to do. Anybody else with me??

I'm so dreading last day with the students. I'm never great about saying goodbye to my class each year, but this year is going to be especially hard. I truly have a class family, they have bonded so closely together and with me. My husband makes fun of me because he says,"You say this every year." You always say, "This class is different." "This class is special." "I love this class." (He makes fun of me every year!)  I guess it's a good thing that I'm sad, right???

Where do those Fairy God Mothers get those wands? How great would it be if EVERYTHING was caught up and complete? I know it's a fantasy, but I can wish!

I want to make sure I find a good balance this summer between entertaining/spending time with my family, house projects, class projects, soccer and gymnastics camps, TPT creations, and blogging. I'm thinking some kind of schedule will help keep me focused so that one thing doesn't outweigh the other and tasks get completed. I'll get my children to help me so we all have ownership.

Living in Florida, flip flops and sunscreen are a MUST for summer! You all know I love heels, but I gotta give these feet a break! :O) We're planning a trip to New York to see one of my dear friends, Melissa, can't wait to spend time with her and her family!

Thanks Farley for hosting!
Oh' boy fourth grade


  1. I love your comments about your wonderful class- I just finished an almost perfect year with a truly amazing class! I would definitely loop up with them, but I have a change in plans for teaching next year! I also agree with you about how crazy the end of the year is- I just take one day at a time! I found your blog thru Farley's June Currently and I'm your newest follower!

    Teachers Are Terrific

  2. Sometimes I wish I could be Mary Poppins and have my classroom cleaned up or better yet my house! I also love that you are coming to New York, where?

    Enjoy your last few days!

  3. This is the part of the year where we all become the little engine that could..."I think I can, I think I can" Good luck with sending your kids off to summer break! :-)

  4. If you find a magic wand, can you pick one up for me too? I would greatly appreciate it. Especially one that works with house cleaning and packing...

  5. Oh how a magic wand would be nice! I had a hard time saying goodbye to my peeps too:( Super sweet group this year:) So, how many days do you have to go back after Tuesday? I'm sick that it's June already because this year we have to go back in July! EEK!

  7. I am ready for the end of year craziness to be over, too! I keep telling myself that it will be done by Friday!! :) Friday is our last day and I plan on coming home and cleaning house so I can start my summer with a clean house!

  8. Your blog is so cute! I just found you through currently! I totally agree with you about having a magic wand! When I was little I was so disappointed that snapping your fingers really didn't make your toys put themselves away!
