Currently July!!

Has another month seriously come and gone?!?!
I'll be honest I'm not quite sure what day it is. I tend to lose track during this part of the year lol! I do know what time it is though... time to link up with Farley from Oh Boy 4th Grade! for her Currently July!
Whew! I am ENJOYING the heck out of this morning! My daughter is with my mother in law going to Disney World today, so I actually got to sleep in until 9:00 this morning. Folks, I cannot tell you the last time that I was able to do that! It was awesome! Now I'm enjoying a cup of coffee, banana pancake, and blogging in peace. I'm savoring every minute!
Can I tell you how much I'm loving summer vacation?!?! No stress, no worries, need I say more?!?!
I'm thinking about my friend's baby shower today that I helped plan for her. I'm so excited to help her celebrate her first child and I saw the cutest 3D/4D ultrasound pictures of her little boy yesterday. I can't wait to meet him!
I am desperately wanting my housework to be done. I just got done last week scrubbing my house from top to bottom and is it ever done?!? once again I have a heap of laundry to fold. Maybe I can convince the hubs to do it...hmmm...
I am desperately needing a mini-vacay away from home. I'm thinking maybe a weekend getaway for my hubs's birthday coming up here in a few weeks. There's something about getting away to rejuvenate for a few days that makes all of the difference in the world!
Tips for blogging-- Show a lot of pictures!! Make us feel a part of your classroom and daily life. I get so inspired by each and every one of you (I think I follow about 1200 blogs that I saw on bloglovin!! cray cray, I know...). I may not get to every single one of you every day, but when I do, I love visually seeing your ideas! Keep up the great work bloggers! I can't tell you how much you all have inspired me to be a better teacher since I discovered teacher blogs a couple of summers ago.
Have a great Saturday!!


  1. Those 3d ultrasounds are crazy!

    Good tip with the real life pictures, so much better than stock photos or no photos.

  2. I agree on pictures- I feel bad posting about things in the summer because I really don't have pictures!! :(

  3. Hi Lisa,
    It sounds like you've got plenty to keep you busy this summer! I have an unmentionable-sized pile of laundry to work on. Too bad I don't have kids or they'd be working on it full time! Haha! :o)
    Have a great summer!

  4. Love your tip. It goes great with my Saturday Snapshots Linky. Come link up if you get a chance

  5. Definitely understand about the housework! We have 4 kids and my niece is visiting for the summer! Enough said! The house is never clean for more than 15 minutes!

  6. I hear you on savoring the complete silence! I woke up before 6 today just so I could have a cup of coffee and blog in peace:) Great advice on pictures!

  7. Wowee... that's a lot of blogs to be following!! I think taking pics is a great idea, as I love looking at them. I just need to work on my camera skills. Have fun with your friend's baby shower!

  8. Hi! Loving your skulls on your blog! SO cute!
    You are right about pics. I get ideas just from looking at a picture.
    I hear you on laundry and housework. We just had a party yesterday so I was forced into cleaning...we haven't had any time lately.
    Enjoy vacay!
