I am linking up with Farley from Oh Boy, Fourth Grade for July’s Currently.
Listening: I definitely have a case of World Cup fever this summer, and I really hope USA can pull out a win today. My husband would love to make a trip to the World Cup one day, and now I may be interested in going too.
Loving: The beginning of the summer was a whirlwind of traveling, but this past week I have finally had time to relax and I am loving it. It gives me time to reflect on all aspects of my life. It also gives me time to focus on me and recharge for the coming school year.
Thinking: With all of the reflecting I have been doing, I have been thinking a lot about the things I want to alter slightly or change drastically in my classroom in the new school year.
Wanting: I have seen many bloggers post pictures of great book boxes that they have found, and I want to find some too. For the past 4 years, I have just used the cardboard ones from IKEA because they are cheap, but I definitely get what I paid for….they start looking trashy halfway through the year and start falling apart by the end.
Needing: I haven’t been able to get caught up on our laundry this summer. It seems like there is always another pile of dirty clothes somewhere. We are headed out of town again next week for one of my best friend’s wedding, so I need all our clothes clean before then.
4th Plans: Since we’ve been out of town a lot this summer, my husband and I decided to just stay home for the Fourth of July this year. We are just going to barbeque with some friends and then head out to our front stoop to watch the local fireworks. We are lucky to live on the top of a hill and are able to see many fireworks displays in different directions.
