Listening…speaks for itself
I have a slight addiction to fruit and maple oatmeal right now, like I go every.single.morning.
I am one of those people who has trouble relaxing. I get it from my daddy. He worked til he was 71 because he needs that schedule. I am the same way! I get real moody in the summer!
Again, wanting speaks for itself. My principal thinks the tile will be down by Friday, which means me and the little Lamb can move furniture back in while the big boys are at basketball camp next week! yay!
really needing to stick my toes in the sand. I guess the lake is as good as it gets.
I always “taught” Love That Dog in 4th grade. Now I read it aloud. I still cry every time. The kids cannot believe it because my kiddos do not yet see the connection with the poems about Sky and the poems about the Blue Car. Love That Book!
And I still refer and reread a Comprehension Connections chapter each month to refresh myself on our school’s monthly strategy instruction. Love it, Changed how I teach and really learned to teach much more explicitly.

Here’s a few pictures from the 4th. This was the first year we all saw fireworks since Drew was born. I am not sure it was worth the hour to get out of the parking lot, but they were nothing less than spectacular! Great job Hickory Crawdads! They won and had great fireworks!








and speaking of Drew…great picture! Don’t worry-that’s my Diet Sundrop he stole!


  1. I love the name of your blog!! I also love Comprehension Connections-great book. We just started our summer holidays and I am still on think-think-think mode. {sigh} I hope it goes away soon...


  2. I have been wanting to try the McDonald's Oatmeal for some time now... Your post just validated all of the great things that I have heard about it. Tomorrow morning... Im going!! Looks like you and your family had a great 4th!!

    From Blood to Books!

  3. Love the story, Love that Dog! I'm new to the whole Currently thing and excited to connect with new bloggers. Loved her idea of visiting 3 blogs and commenting.

  4. I love McDonald's oatmeal. It is so good. Have you tried the blueberry kind? I haven't yet.


  5. My teammate eats the blueberry one. I had to wait to try it so I'd have a backup just in case! I do not like blueberries, but it honestly tasted like bananas! It's a go!
