OH BOY! I cannot believe it is the night before the first day of school! I feel like one of my students, all giddy, nervous, and excited!!! I cannot wait for the kiddos who didn't see my classroom and that I didn't get to meet at Open House to come in tomorrow. I just know it's going to be a great year! I actually had FUN at meetings today with my co-workers.. and we got stuff done! (Lots of fun common core analyzing/aligning with standards.)

Anywho.... I'm linking up with Oh' Boy 4th Grade for this September currently linky party!

I have to say.. this Fantasy Football thing might be kind of addicting (but shhh..:x don't tell my husband that!) I'm always getting on him for spending so much time with it.. but he's in 3 leagues, you can't blame a girl, can ya?!

Did I mention that I have AHHH-MAAAAZING friends?!?! Sarah and Emily have been two of my closest friends from high school, were in our wedding, and we still are all so close! (Sarah is actually my assistant volleyball coach too!) So I got a text from them about a half hour ago, telling me to go look on my porch.. and this is what I find!
Naturally, I was screaming with excitement and hubby had to come out to see what was the matter! I was so excited for this neat-o gift! They are SO thoughtful and certainly made my day! :)

This is the card that was in it explaining the kit! I may have shed a tear after reading this, thankful for all of their support and love. What an amazing idea. It is so nice to have people support you and reaffirm why you do what you do :)

Here's a picture of my favorite new running shoes.. motivating me to get those runs in even when I'm on a tiring teacher schedule!
It won't let me rotate it the right way.. but you can get a good idea of them here. I just think they are too cute:)

I will upload pictures of my last fav, my classroom, hopefully tomorrow or Friday when I do a classroom tour!

Now I'm off to pack my lunch, put on some pjs, and cuddle with hubby until bed time on a SCHOOL night! :)

See ya'll on the flipside tomorrow!


  1. Love your shoes... wish I could get into running or any exercising for that matter... I am here from Farley's blog!!

  2. omg! soo funny. I started reading your "currently" and the first thing I see is that you are listening to: football talk. That is exactly what I put as my "listening" on my "currently" list. It made me laugh so loud because my husband is in three fantasy football leagues too. Luckily, they aren't all for money. Anyway, I'm your newest follower. If you have a chance check out my blog!

  3. Thanks, Heather! I never used to be a runner, but I've picked it up in the last 2 years or so. I always just tell myself no matter what pace I go, as long as I keep moving I'm doing good! :)

    Kelly- Love your blog! I'm excited to follow you :) Love that I'm not the only one with the fantasy football dilemma! Haha, his aren't all for money either, so that's good! Definitely takes up a lot of fall though!

  4. So you are a runner, too! I just started running back in January! :)

    Hope you have a great 1st day at school tomorrow!


  5. I am ready for boots and cooler weather too! This 100+ temperature is not for me unless I am at the beach! =)

    I love your basket and card from your sweet friends. I need to remember to do that to others more often. Just the smallest note and treat can really brighten someone's day.

    I am happy to be your newest follower. If you get the chance, I would love for you to hop over and visit me.
