Wow, again. I still cannot believe it's August!
I have had a busy, craft-filled, book-reading, poster-making, product-making, blogging summer.
I had my blog redesigned, met a whole kaboodle of new bloggers that I adore, helped my daughter set up her first grade classroom, adopted a new kitten, and almost went zip-lining.
None of that would fit the Currently topics, so I thought I'd just add it all at the top.....
Oh, Farley, Farley, Farley......thank you so much!
We love our Currently!
Here's My August!
I am LISTENING to my two younger cats have a complete overly-loud and extremely long cat-fight. They are not really fighting, just playing. Isn't it cool the way the older cat will "fight" with the kitten, but not hurt her.
Baby cat snoozin'
I am LOVING the weather in Alabama right now. We have had about a week of lower than normal temps. In fact, one morning it was in the mid-fifties. Unheard of! You can almost feel Fall in the air.....don't be fooled- it will back to 105 degrees next week with 8 million % humidity....
I am THINKING about how to get the attention of a large group of noisy kids in the lab! How do you get your students attention? In my old third grade class I flipped a light switch, clapped, or sang, "Oh Classy Class" to which the kids responded, "Yessy, Yes". None of these work in the lab. Flipping the switch makes no visible difference to the amount of light in the room. They don't hear the clap or singing. I really think I need a bull horn.....
I am WANTING next week to be over. We have two days of inservice and meetings, Parent Night, and the first day. I dislike all of those things..... I just want normal days to be happening!
I am not NEEDING anything. Really, incredibly blessed and comfortable with everything right now. TJ Maxx just down the road, Wal-Mart around the corner, hubs is happy, daughter has a teaching job, son helps me whenever I screw up my computer, 3 sweet cats....what else do I need?
SCHOOL begins next week! Oh my!
Shall I leave you with a funny- a blast from the past- a Funny of the Week- once said in my old classroom.....
After lunch one day I was helping clear tables and noticed that most of the boys had not eaten one specific veggie.
I said, “You guys did not eat your sweet potatoes!?”
A couple of boys replied. “Those are yams!”
If you are beginning school next week, I wish you the best year ever!
If you are still on summer break, enjoy it friends.
