June Currently

I am linking up to Farley today for the June Currently!  I love all of the monthly linky parties, I just hope I find motivation to participate in more :)  Here it is!
Listening: I have been trying to get up a bit earlier each day as my time to blog before I head to school.  It is nice having about an hour of quiet before getting the day actually started.  We have some birds who have decided to use our balcony as their home so its nice listening to them chirp every morning.  They are very loud this morning... must be as excited as me that it is the last week of school!

Loving: Today is the last Monday of the school year!  I will miss my kiddos, but man am I ready for a break.  We have an awards ceremony this morning and a kickball game this afternoon... so pretty easy day.

 Thinking: I have GOT to finish report cards today if I want to be packed up and done with my classroom this week... I mean I REALLY don't want to go back in on Monday!  So hopefully next time I blog, I will be able to say my report cards are complete!

Wanting: We had a beautiful Saturday, but it was gross and rainy all day yesterday and it looks the same out there today :(  Come on!  I want the sun!

Needing: I think I will need about 5 cups of coffee today.  I am EXHAUSTED!  I participated in our county's Relay for Life on Saturday/Sunday.  I joined my old co-workers on our Teachers Making Tracks team.  Our team raised about 14,000 dollars and the even raised of 220,000 dollars for cancer research.  We had the honor of hearing a ten year old girl speak who has a walnut sized tumor in her brain... she crushed a walnut in front of us as a sign of beating cancer.  I walked from about 2:00 Saturday (hottest day yet!) until 6am on Sunday.  I came home and slept until 1:00 yesterday so needless to say didn't fall asleep too easily last night.  Now I am TIRED!  Hopefully this first cup of coffee will kick in soon :)  I walked 23 miles!

Vacay Essentials: Beach (its not a summer without one or two trips to the beach), Sleep (based on my previous post that is a big topic on my mind right now!), and Friends/Family (I NEED to be better at seeing my friends and family, I will start this summer!)

I hope you all have a wonderful June!


  1. I love getting up early and having that time to myself. :)

  5. So so so jealous that you have had your last Monday of the school year. We have 6 more months of our school year left. The 5am alarm always seems especially cruel on a Monday! :)
