Listening: Right now.. Dave Mathews Band.. as usual.. DMB has been on my brain all month long! Hubs and I went to see him last weekend. We stood in the rain for 2 1/2 hours and listened to him play. Awesome!! I am such a big fan! Sorry this isn't the best picture. I had to settle for lawn seats this year. I miss being in the pavilion!
Loving: Summer is finally here! We have three weeks of school left, but the summer here! The last few days it has been in the upper 80s with a great breeze. Perfect weather for travel softball.
We have spent most of the weekend at the fields. My 24, who catches, won an MVP medal in her tournament. Fabulous throw down to second for an out, and a great at bat! Woot!
Thinking: Only 3 weeks left of school! I hope I can make it! I have a tough class. A few boys feel that they need to make comments after EVERYTHING we say. UGGGGG I'd love to end the year with a positive vibe in our classroom. It will be a tough 3 weeks!
Wanting: To get back into my running program. I am hoping that with the school year ending I can get back into some sort of running routine in the morning. I have started to keep track of calories again.. which is at least a step in the right direction!
Needing: To prepare for my Little Man's Fifth grade graduation! Not a super big deal, but it is a milestone of leaving behind elementary school. Last week they had an assembly and he was presented with a Presidential Award for Academics. He is very nervous about going to middle school, but I know he will do a great job!
Are you already out of school? I am so jealous! Do you have any summer goals?
I know most of my weekends will be spent at the ball field, but I am hoping to spend a little but of time working on some new TpT products. I also have a social studies curriculum to learn. Next year I'm on a two man team. I'll be teaching ELA, Math and SS. I'll be looking for a few pointers!
Vacation Essentials: My camera is the first thing that comes to mind. I usually try to take my SLR with me, but my iphone does in a pinch. A good book... need I say more? I'm reading The Paris Wife right now. It is about Ernest Hemingway. Have you read anything good lately? I usually read a few professional books as well as fun books. Let me know about anything that you think was a good read!
Last, friends are always fun on vacation... or at least family that can relax and enjoy the time spend together.
Enjoy the summertime my friends!
