Listening: This month I will be sending A LOT of time at the ball park. My daughter plays softball for her school and on a travel team, and my son plays Little League. I never mind soaking up a little sunshine in my chair... key word being SUNSHINE.. when we are at the field and it's 40.. that is NOT fun. May has started off in the 70s which is perfect weather.
My "24" is a catcher, so it is always fun to watch a little action from her behind the plate. My son "little Man" is a pitcher. He managed to strike out 3 batters in 2 innings this week.. of course he walked 5 kids and hit one.. being 10 is tough!
Loving: SUNSHINE... SUNSHINE.... SUNSHINE... 'nough said!
Thinking: I'm going to see Dave Matthews at the end of the month! I am sooooo excited for this concert. DMB is my all time favorite group. I have been watching their set lists and creating playlists on my ipod with their sets so I will be all ready. Last year when I saw him I had FABULOUS seats.. like 8 rows from the stage. THis year, not so much. But I'm not going to let that stop me from having a great time! WOOT!
Wanting: I want to be done grading our ELA and Math assessments! I have been out of school all week grading. I left an awesome lab that I created for Surface Area for my sub, and I really wish I was there to do it with my smarties.
Needing: Our last unit of the year is on Data and Statistics. I have a ton of time to cover a few benchmarks, so I want this unit to be hands on with lots of sample collection, application and analysis. I just can't wrap my head around it yet.. too much grading this week. And.. oh yeah.. who wouldn't love a relaxing pedicure! My "dogs" are tired!!!
Summer Bucket List: Gator Nation: Can't wait to get back to a little Gator Sunshine! We love spending time in Gainesville.
I'm also looking for a little PD this summer.. so if anyone knows about a discussion group with Lucy Calkings new book about the Common Core, send me an email or leave a comment. I'd love to join in.
Lastly, I need to get back into my running routine. I have been such a slacker, and I need to feel healthy again.. both brain and body (thus the RUN and READ)
