September Currently

WHAAAT?  It is September already?  I know many of you are looking forward to pumpkin lattes, football and fall clothes.... I just need to get through this week.  We have had a pretty cool summer - but this week it's supposed to be 90 and humid ALL WEEK!  Ugh.... getting my little munchkins to stay focused is hard enough at the beginning of the year, add in heat and humidity and the hottest room in the school and I'm going to have to get really creative this week!

Ok, on to September's Currently.  Would you just look at this design!  Megan from A New Box of Crayons created it and it is aDORable!  On with the fun!

Right now I'm enjoying my last day at the lake house.. (ok, half day - at some point I have to pack everything I've brought here over the past two months and bring it back home!)... the birds are out, kids are playing and the neighbors are working in their yards... sigh... can't i just have a little more summer??

I really can't complain though - we went back 3 days last week, 4 days this week and next week will be out first full week.  Now THAT is the way to start school... ease them (and me!) into it slowly...

Once tomorrow hits though, it won't feel slow!  My niece and nephews each do a fall sport and I put all the game dates in my calendar yesterday... HOLY WOWZA!  Football, field hockey and soccer will be what I do after school most days from now until November.

Ok, I had to put the "wanting" part.  It would be nice to go to bed on Sundays knowing I have another day to plan and organize.

Those things on my "needing" list are usually always there... I have gotten great use out of my new laser printer... and I now have TWO laminators (yes, it really is worth it!) so I can work twice as fast.  I still don't think I'll ever be able to buy enough for everything I want to print out!

And finally, 3 places I've never been that I would like to vacation at.... (now keep in mind I don't fly, I get carsick and have major motion sickness... not really going to any of these places!).  I'm an East Coast girl and I've never seen the desert - I think it would be beautiful to see the landscape.  And a tropical island vacation on a sandy beach with clear blue water would be nice... and just for fun, how about a safari in Africa... that would be amazing!

I'm off now to enjoy some of this beautiful day... don't forget to stop by Farley's Currently and see what everyone else is up to.

  1. What a great way to spend Labor Day weekend! I love staying on the lake. It is always so peaceful. Have a great half day left!

  2. I'm so glad I found a fellow 2nd grade blogger to start following! I know how busy fall sports can be. I have two soccer girls and I will probably spend 3-4 days a week at games! If you ever want to see the desert, come on over here to New Mexico! It is a loooong drive from the East Coast though!

  3. That sounds like the perfect way to ease into the school year! That is the way to do it. I am very jealous! I hope your last moments at the lake are wonderful!
