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!|
Butttttttttttt....now 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 classroom....so 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 love...so 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!
