It's August Already?

Gee Whiz! For a girl who wanted to get SO many blog posts done over the summer, I've once again been slacking majorly! In my own defense, I have been pret-ty busy trying to squeeze in every last bit of fun to be had before I head back to school. In the last three weekends I've attended a music festival, helped to organize my class reunion (success!), and just came home from a weekend on the river kayaking with 14 of my best friends. If you know me at all, you know I had my camera available to capture some funny moments:

My hubby (right) and his best friend, the Strizzle Dizzle. Partners in crime for life!

Squirrel stole some peanut butter crackers out of our grocery bag! Sneaky!

These girls make my face hurt from laughing!

Riverside campsite I feel as though I'm in full-on back to school mode. The kayaking trip was the last "fun" adventure I had planned for the summer and I told myself that after it was over, I was going to dedicate myself to my here I go...sniff, sniff, tiny tear... :)

In preparation for back to school, I've been snatching up all kinds of great goodies on Teachers Pay Teachers for the beginning of the year. Yesterday I picked up a character education packet, a narrative writing unit and a free back to school getting to know you activity! I don't know where these people find the time and energy to put such great stuff out there! I only have 2 items in my TPT store so far! (BTW, head on over and pick up my back to school "I have, who has" game!)

Yesterday, via Pinterest, I came upon a "currently" page and I fell in I made my own to link up with all of theirs! (If you haven't visited Farley's Site yet, do yourself a favor and get over there!)

Here is my August Currently...

So fun, right? I'm hoping to make this a monthly occurrence...let's see if I can stick with it!

Ooooh, I also signed up to become a Pen Pal! 

The Teacher Idea Factory is organizing a HUGE pen-pal list! I'm so excited to get my kiddos in on the fun! If you're a teacher and are interested in this program, stop on by and check it out!

 I also purchased This awesome pack to go with my unit!

Okay! I think I'm done for now! I have some DIY projects in the works as well as 6 blog posts I'm currently working on. But first...I have to unpack from this camping trip! 

Have a super day!
