Happy Father's Day Dads!

What a beautiful weekend...the weather has been gorgeous!  This is my first official weekend of summer vacation, and I am loving every minute of it!  We went yesterday evening to visit my father and have a little cookout for Father's Day.  This was the start of my clumsy weekend.  First my husband tripped and fell in a divot in the grass.  Later when we were leaving I completely missed a stair on the steps going down to my father's driveway.  Talk about landing palms and face first on the pavement.  A twisted ankle, smacked knees, and a sore wrist later it was definitely time to head home!  Then this afternoon while making soup for lunch for my youngest, I completely tipped the bowl the wrong way.  Boiling hot soup broth poured all over both of my hands...ouch!  So, I don't know what's going on with the clumsy stuff, but I'm hoping there's no more of it this weekend!  Fortunately for me, the books that I have ordered for my summer reading have mostly arrived, and you can't get too injured when you are camped out on the couch with good books right?  Right?!?! ;)  On my list for this summer for professional books are: 

So far the only one that hasn't arrived yet is the Guided Math book, but I've got more than enough to get me started! =)  For enjoyment reading this summer I think I'm going to see what everyone's been talking about with:

 I hope that all of the fabulous dads out there have an amazing day! <3


  1. Hi!! I am now your newest follower too. :-) Thanks for stopping by my blog today.


  2. Comprehension Connections is such a great book! I use a lot of the ideas from it. I started reading the Notebook Connections book but I didn't get too far. Please post a review if you do read it! You have an ambitious reading list and a great blog!

  3. Thanks Jennifer! I'm actually almost through with Notebook Connections, so I will definitely post a review when I'm done. I've found lots of good ideas in there so far! =) It definitely is proving to be an ambitious reading this point if I get through half of them I'll be doing well! =) Thanks for stopping by!


I'd love to hear from you! =)
