Currently ~ July!

It's the beginning of the month so it's time for 'Currently' offered by Oh' Boy 4th Grade.

LISTENING: I just discovered A Fine Frenzy recently.  I am in love with them.  They have the kind of music where you want to listen to their songs over and over.
LOVING:  My daughter is coming home for two weeks to visit from Phoenix.  I am so excited!  We don't have a whole lot specific planned, but we have the kind of relationship where we can just cuddle and talk for hours about everything.  I have been missing her tremendously.  Her visit couldn't come at a better time.
THINKING:  We just got a Lakeshore store in our area recently and I have yet to go.  I am planning a trek over to the store today with a good friend.  I already have so many things in my head I want.  It could be a dangerous trip. :)
WANTING:  Every year it seems that once the fourth of July hits the summer is almost over.  It won't be long before I will be setting up my classroom and attending meetings.  I want to savor my summer an enjoy each day as it comes and goes.
NEEDING:  Going to the grocery store is my least favorite thing to do.  I always put it off tip the last minute.  It's time to make that dreaded trek again.
4TH PLANS:  I don't like fighting crowds to watch fireworks displays.  My ideal 4th is spending it with great friends and family, eating good food, possibly mixing in a little water to cool down, and watching fireworks from afar, so that's my plan.  :)
Head over to Oh' Boy 4th Grade! and link up your 'Currently' list.  Don't forget to read her post.  Sounds like she has had one heck of a summer.  I love her attitude…………..
"yep you have to look at the good...
because you are the only one in charge of your JOY... 
so instead of sinking into a deep darkness of WTH ....
I am choosing to focus on the good...
I am choosing JOY".

Thanks for reading!  Have a great day.  :)


  1. Hey,
    So I just stumbled through your blog and love your Currently. I love that any visit whether it is between parents and their kids or aunts with their nieces are considered a good thing and very wonderful. I am like you that Summer is ending and that school will begin soon.

    Have a Happy Fourth of July.

  2. I could buy so much from Lakeshore as well. I'm switching grades this year so it is even worse than normal! I wish the summer would slow down since I feel like it is starting the slide back into school once July hits :( ....how did it come up so quick!


  3. Summer definitely needs to slow down! :) Lakeshore is seriously dangerous, especially with all the coupons they've been sending me this summer. They know my will is weak! :) Have a happy 4th!

    Fun in PreK-1 & Kinder

  4. Have fun with your daughter! Have fun at Lakeshore. There is one only 5 minutes from my house and every time I go there I spend way too much money!
    Fun in ECSE

  5. I see you are a Missouri blogger, I live in MO, where is the Lakeshore store.... I would plan a trip in a heartbeat!!!

    1. The store is just past the MO state line in Merriam, Kansas. I just got back…..it was AMAZING! I wanted so much stuff. Mentally I spent hundreds of dollars. :)

  6. Do you have any idea about Phoenix pre-k? Actually i am enrolling my son there and very confused if they will provide the best education and environment to my child.
