CURRENTLY in June.....

CAN you BELIEVE it!!! 3 more days with the kids...then 2 days of post-planning!
Where did the time go?
I am hooking up with FARLEY over at "Oh' Boy 4th Grade" for the end of the year CURRENTLY!
It's the last "lesson plan" Sunday, you know what I mean...checking your weekly plans to make sure you include ALL the standards and ALL the ELL strategies, and such! But if you are like me, you are already trolling Teachers Pay Teachers for cute stuff for next year! Do you know what grade level you are in yet? Our current Principal is retiring and our Assistant Principal is taking over in July, needless to say I was a little worried if I would stay in the wonderful grade of 2nd...which I am!! (Thanks Sherry!)
As I am sitting here, trolling, blogging and checking I am also listening to "Say Yes to the Dress" hopes that "Long Island Medium" will come on me some Theresa!

I can't wait for SUMMER! I N E E D a L O N G break! I need to get out to the desert and check on my Daddy, he's been very ill this past month, I almost flew out there the first week of May, but God took care of him for me, while I sweated it out in the tropics. I can't wait to see how he's doing in person!
So,  If you have been following my posts, then you know I want out of the renting is so expensive!! I'm seriously trying to find affordable SAFE housing for me and the boy. I am looking here, in the tropics and in the desert! The boy does NOT want to move, but at this point it's up to the money and job powers that be...truthfully moving will suck! But we have to really get out of this apartment!

I am hoping this SUMMER won't turn me into a slug and  stop working out! I am doing 3-4 miles a day in the morning, and need to keep that up, if not extend it to 5-6 miles a morning! I just don't want to get up early anymore...but living in the tropics, beating the heat is half the game! OH I hope my will power succeeds!
Starting tomorrow at school, I will have a parent in everyday to help me clean and pack...well that is the plan...I want to have her help put things in their summer home and label the boxes. That way when Wednesday rolls around the kids will have a cleaned-out classroom to say good bye to! This week they are doing a lot of "Scoot" games, "Quiz, Quiz, Trade" and "Task Cards" to keep them focused as we clean and pack through out the day! I hope my planning actually works!

Happy Vacation to all my Blogging Buddies, don't forget the sunscreen!
