Currently… loving summer!

I just have to thank you for the love on my last couple of posts. I’m going to step off the soapbox for now and share a little more lighthearted look at the last few days!

I spent a lot of hours (over 25 for sure) from Monday- Thursday working on my classroom. I worked on organizing my classroom library (again)… and spent a lot of time going through the supplies left in my closets when I moved in last year. Sooo good to do a little purging and get it all packed up!


A lot of hours at work for the first week of my “summer off,” though!

Definitely shared a lot with #teachersummerwork  : ) Thanks to those of you who have joined me! (Not sure what I’m talking about? Read more here!)

Now that I’m done in my classroom for a bit, I’m linking up with Farley to share…

currently june

{listening} – Yep, I love Netflix. Suggestions for my next show are very welcome : )

{loving} – My husband works 2nd shift, so we don’t usually get a lot of time together during the week. My dog is also loving a little extra time with her people!

{thinking} – I need to set some goals or I won’t get everything done! The To Do list is so, so long… including lots for my class, even more for home, and some TpT projects, like a few updates to Text Detectives, finishing Text Detectives Jr., and creating a new product series!

Hint, hint…


{wanting} – There’s a teeny chance we could be moving and I hate not knowing for sure! Fingers crossed that I know soon!

{needing} – To get healthier again! I’m back to tracking what I eat- just makes me more aware- by using MyFitnessPal, and I use my FitBit to track my daily steps.

In full honesty, I should mention that today I ate Graeter’s ice cream… and the kids’ families gave me about $30 more in gift cards there.  So… ice cream is gonna happen. But I’m going to try for balance!


I’m so excited to blog more this summer! I’ve missed writing about teaching and connecting with other teachers. Thanks for reading along and commenting!


  1. I feel you pain on keep a balance on my eating. I need to make healthier choices. I am trying to lose weight before my son gets married this fall. Good luck and enjoy the ice cream. It is my weakness also.

  2. I'm not going to lie that ice cream looks AMAZING! I just started weight watchers to try to keep myself in check since I have to have something that forces me to eat well and in the right proportions.

    Also, I can't wait to see your creations!

  3. Your organization looks great and you will be so thankful when it's time to set-up again!
    Happy Summer!

  4. I'm in the process of figuring out if I have a job for the rest of the Australian school year (ends in December), and I found out my boyfriend's job may relocate him again. I'm with you, I hate not knowing!

  5. Graeters is hands-down the BEST ice cream ever!! Maybe not the best for staying healthy, but everyone needs a little ice cream in their summer!
