Holy Moly, Is It June Already!?

I can't believe it is already June! Where did this year go!? I only have 9 more days with my kiddos. This year is going to be more bitter sweet than past years because I am changing schools. I'm very sad to leave my kids and my team, but also excited for the change!

How many days do you have left? Or are you already on break!?

Well, as the year comes to an end and I have serious writer's block due to the million things running through my head, I thought it would be fun to link up with Oh' Boy Fourth Grade for Currently June. Since I am new to the blogging world, this is my first time joining the currently link up. But it looked like fun! So here we go!

Listening: My husband and I just recently started Game of Thrones. And by recently, I mean binge watched 2 seasons in a week. Oops. I don't know what took us so long. We've had the first 1 (maybe 2?) seasons on DVD for a couple years now but never got around to watching them. 

Loving: I live in Oregon so sunshine is kind of a big deal. We rarely get it, especially this early in the year! We're lucky if we get it in July. I am soaking up every bit of this that I can! 

Thinking: The last few weeks of school are always such a whirlwind, not that I have to tell you that. Every time I check 1 thing off my to-do list, I add 5 more. I can't seem to shut my brain off these days!

Wanting: As I mentioned above, I am switching schools next year, but haven't been told my exact placement yet. I am hoping to find out this week *fingers crossed*. 

Needing: See above. 

Summer Bucket List: This part is pretty self explanatory!
1. I want to spend as much time out in the sun as possible. Soak up every bit I can. 
2. I want to re-structure my writing program over the summer. I would love to hear how some of you teach writing! 
3. My husband and I are hoping to visit NYC this year. One of our best friends recently moved there and we want to go visit him and check NY off of our travel list. I would also love to see a broadway show while there. :)
4. I didn't have space for this one on the image, but I also want to fill out my TPT store. I have so many items from before that I never posted and several others in progress. It's going to be a busy summer!

Well, back to Game of Thrones. Have a wonderful week! We start our end of school countdown! Tomorrow is Marker Day where we get to do all of our work in markers. So simple, but they love it! 


  1. My hubby is hooked on Game of Thrones! Once you find your placement ( fingers & toes crossed) SOON...everything will settle down. Enjoy the great weather! We in CA are enjoying it too! Wendy 1stgradefireworks 1stgradefireworks

    1. Have you not watched it with your husband!? You totally should. I didn't think I would like it (I'm not a violence kind of person) but I love it!

      I hope things settle down soon! Enjoy your summer break! I'm so jealous you get sunshine! I was born and raised in CA, I miss the weather :)

  2. We have been out for a full week already..sorry! But I bet we go back way before you have to! You can make it 9 more days :) I hope you get your placement before summer so you have the summer to think and gather ideas! Good luck!

    1. Thank you! I should hear something this week hopefully! It would be great to know before summer so I can relax!

      Enjoy your break!

  3. I love your blog. I love your summer vacation and also patience because I needed it to. Hope you have a happy day!

  4. ohh have you ever been to NYC? I used to live there and miss it terribly. I am so jealous you are going.
    Hope you find out your placement soon!

    Lessons Learned

    1. I have not been! But I am a huge broadway nut and have the travel bug so bad lately! I look for any excuse to travel and our best friend moving there seems as good a reason as any! ;)

      Thank you!
