Oh, May! How I love you!

Yippee!  It's May!  It has been a wonderful school year but all good things must come to an end.  My end is almost near!  Only 14 more school days left before summer vacation.  I've been looking forward to this Currently for nine months!!

Listening...  Our sweet puppy is spoiled!  He loves to bark to get your attention, when he doesn't get what he wants or any time he wants to exercise his vocal cords!  It can be very aggravating, but how can you get annoyed with this sweet thing??

Loving... We are on the countdown!  Only 14 school days left!  Our school gets out before Memorial Day this year.  That never happens!  However, if the next 14 days are anything like Friday, it will be the longest 14 school days of my life.  I think they finally came to the realization that the school year is almost over.

Thinking... All I can think about lately is  my new position for next school year.  I will be in a new school, teaching a new grade level (it's a 3rd/4th split).  Of course this means packing my classroom, moving my things and learning a new curriculum.  Yikes!  I need to stop thinking about it!

Wanting... New patio furniture.... need I say more??
I have neglected this area of our yard since we moved in five years ago.  We are always working on a project somewhere inside or outside our house.  It's finally time to make this patio a welcoming place to be.  I think it has potential.  Any ideas?!

Needing... I need to get organized!  This time of year seems to get so busy that I lose all control.  My goal tomorrow is to make lists.  For some reason if I write it down things become more manageable.

Summer bucket list...  See needing.  It all goes hand it hand.  I think I could be more organized if I simplified.  I have way too much junk!!

That's it for May.  Head over to visit Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade to link up to this month's Currently.

  2. I totally feel you on the need to organize! I have so many school supplies I've accumulated from my job and gifts from student teaching. It's all overflowing now and I need to get it under control!

  3. 14 days left! That's amazing! As a military wife, I've moved classrooms far too many times so I know the work involved, but I always look at it as a fresh start and a chance to gain new knowledge. Hope that you love the change!

  4. I am so sorry you have to move, but what exciting new adventures you'll have! And selfishly, I'm excited for more of your products since I'm 4th grade. ;-)

  6. Your puppy is so adorable! I just love dogs!

    The time you spend sprucing up your patio will be well worth it and a great place to relax. Sounds like you have a busy summer planned with moving schools. I live by the motto "When in doubt, throw it out." Would that help??? :)

    I'm also a 4th grade teacher and your newest follower. Please stop by when you get a chance.
