Currently - For the Last Month of Summer Vacay

It's the first day of August.
Time to savor every last minute of this summer vacation.
And it's also time to join Farley's Currently linky.

 I've had a quiet afternoon.
My new teaching team came over for lunch, and then after they left I spend the afternoon lounging and reading blogs.  Perfect for a rainy summer afternoon.

I have two new team members at my grade level this coming year, and they are both awesome.
They seem really easy to work with, and they have great ideas to share.
I think we will be so productive together!

We are having a small family reunion at my house this weekend.
I looking forward to all the fun, but also thinking about feeding everybody.

I moved in to a new house in April, and had a list of projects to do before school starts.
There are still a few, like painting a bedroom, and cleaning the carpets that have yet to be crossed off the list.

I'm excited to be going to San Diego for a few days next week to see a friend!
I have hardly bought any clothes this summer because most of  my hard-earned cash has gone to things for the new house.
Sounds like a good excuse to hit the mall in San Diego!

We start on the 25th, but have multiple district sponsored workshops before then.  
And now, like Farley, I am going to do a shameless plug.

As you probably know, there is a BIG SALE coming on Monday and Tuesday.

I just completed a product that I think will be very useful in tracking the return of books and homework.
You can check it out here, and hope you add it to your shopping wish list!


  1. I need clothes for a trip too - must get shopping! Glad your new team members seem like they'll be great to work with. I have a whole new team this coming year and am a bit apprehensive! Glad to find you through Currently!
