Goals for the Summer!

Well Happy Summer Friends!
I was scrolling through my Bloglovin' feed and found a really fun summer idea!
It's a weekly summer linky featuring different topics.
The first topic is about Summer goals!

So, thank you to I Heart Grade 3 for this fabulous idea!
It made me really think about what I want to accomplish in the next two months!

First off, I will be traveling to the Teachers Pay Teachers conference in July. We are leaving on July 8th and staying a few extra days. So, I need to start planning our itinerary for those extra days! We are definitely going to the Grand Canyon. Everything I have read says to go all the way to the South Rim, but it appears to be a 5 hour drive. I am thinking we may go to a different spot just to avoid spending ten hours in a car!
I'm also looking at Vegas shows. If you have seen any, what do you recommend?

I love my job,
I love creating products for TpT.
But I also love to read. So, I will spend some time just doing what I want. Here's what I am currently reading:
 
It's actually quite good. It's the story of a girl woman named Sophie that makes a regrettable mistake during World War I. The first 100 pages were all about Sophie and her family living in France during the German occupation. The details of all they went through during this time are heartbreaking. Much later, 2006 to be exact, the story picks up with Liv, who now has a painting that was once owned by Sophie! Hmmmm.....where is this story headed?
I don't know, but it is very well written!
I am also going to be spend some time cleaning out things- which is my way of relaxing.
Some people garden to relax.
I put things in order.

I am in the midst of de-cluttering! I hate clutter. I hate things just sitting out that have no purpose.
So, I am doing one room a day- from top to bottom! I am also sprucing up some little decor items!
Photos to come eventually!

Of course, I will use time to work on some things for my TpT adventure.
I have a list of products to update-- including these two:

We tried the Spaghetti challenge  a long time ago and then I repeated it in May. We tried some new things with the challenge, including new lab sheets, so I want to update that package!


We also tried the Bubble Challenge again and I have new photos and new lab sheets. So, that package will also undergo a revamping!
I have two new packages to work on- one about building ramps and one about testing paper airplanes.
I also have a list about ten miles long of new ideas to work on!

So, what does your summer look like?

  1. Hi Carol!

    Thanks for joining up to my linky party!

    Keep your eyes out for me at the TpT Conference! Last year I went with my husband and we stayed a few extra days to do the touristy stuff. This year I will be going alone - quick in and quick out!

    Have a great day!

    1. Thanks for visiting Stacy! We are definitely going to the Grand Canyon, but I am trying to decide if we want to drive or pay for a helicopter ride!

  3. Hi Carol! Sounds like some great goals. Have you ever seen a Cirque du Soleil show? If not, I'd highly recommend their Vegas show. It's so good! I hope you have a lot of fun and enjoy every minute of summer!

    1. Thanks for visiting Kelly! I have not seen a Cirque du Soleil show, but just last night I was reading about the several shows available and it seems the one most recommended is called "O". It is a little pricey, but I think that is the one we will see!
