August Currently

Where did June and July go??? Summer was so short!!! While I do miss being in the classroom and I love back to school time (new crayons and school supplies are so exciting to everyone, right?), I sure do miss my babies when I can gone. 

Today I am linking up with Oh Boy Fourth Grade for the August Currently.

Listening:  I have always loved reading and one of my favorite series are the When Calls the Heart Series by Janette Oke. The books are historical Christian books. Last year, the books were turned into a mini series. I LOVE them!!! While I am working  on school work, I am watching the series. 

Loving:  My adorable classroom. It just makes me happy every time I walk into work on it. Our first day of post planning was today. 

Thinking:  I need so many extra hours in my day to get everything done. I have huge plans, I just need more hours (and maybe a personal assistant).

Wanting:  While I am so excited about the school year, I am so sad to lose my morning snuggle time. When I woke up to get ready for work this morning, my Eric (who is coming to kindergarten- so sad…) said, "Mommy, hurry get in my bed and snuggle me".  So going to miss my babies.

Needing:  My two year old will not sleep through the night in her own bed. NIGHTMARE!!! She is not a kid who will cry it out. She will cry for hours, throw things out of her bed, throw herself down on the crib mattress, and will make herself physically sick. Last night, she was up until 1 a.m. 

1st day of School:  Our first day of school will be Wednesday August 6th. I can't wait for a new school year but I am also so sad that my baby boy is heading to kindergarten. Didn't I just have him??? 

I hope you all have a great school year too!!!


  1. My son was the same way. We got him a bed tent and hung up some Christmas lights and that helped immensely! You could give that a try. I am not looking forward to losing my morning snuggle time too. I hope you have a great school year!

  2. And I can't wait to see your classroom! i love visiting blogs this time of year and seeing how creative other teachers are!

  3. Yes, snuggle time is always missed! My niece, who is 3 years old, is like my own child (I've helped raise her since she was 3 months old), so I am not looking forward to being away from her either. However, she always runs to the door when I get home (from anywhere) and yells "Jenny" and has her arms out ready for a great big hug. So, while I will miss her during the day, I do look forward to her hugs when I get home. :)

    I can't wait to see pictures of your classroom! Good luck to you on your first day/week of school! :)
