Goodbye Google Reader, Hello Bloglovin...

Thanks to the wonderful A Turn to Learn, I am finally getting around to claiming my blog on Bloglovin...better late than never, right???  Google Reader is going away, tomorrow, July 1st, so if you haven't already, be sure to join and follow all of your favorite blogs on Bloglovin, and be sure to click the link above to continue following my blog as well.  I promise my vacation from blogging is coming to an end now that school is finally over for the summer and I have a bit more time on my hands.  Who knows, I may even break the bloggy rules and post twice in one day with my Currently later today... ;)  Happy Sunday! =)

I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking that time is passing by way too quickly!  Here we are again starting out another month,  I'm linking up again with the fabulous Farley for her monthly CURRENTLY.
Listening: As I'm posting I'm listening to the show Renovation Realities.  My husband thinks he's being a funny man as he laughs and says "Maybe I should be on this show..."  I am not chuckling, at all...especially since he recently took on a home improvement project that didn't go as smoothly as planned, and has totally stressed me out!

Loving:  I am also loving that as I am sitting here I am being cooled down by crisp air blowing out of the air conditioner.  I was determined to hold out, but today the humidity got the better of me.  I enjoy the warmth of summer, I definitely do not enjoy the sticky humidity!  I will sleep well tonight for sure!

Thinking:  That I really do need to get motivated to go through my classroom, reorganize certain areas, and PURGE.  I have inherited many different teaching resources in the seven years that I have taught, and I have always suffered guilt over getting rid of things.  This year my goal is to really go through what has accumulated, and get rid of what I don't use or need.  I know that many of the things that I am getting rid of many of my students will want, and they will think that it's fantastic lol.

Wanting:  A quiet day at home with family to just relax.  With the different sports schedules and projects going on around here there hasn't been much quality time spent relaxing.  I'm hoping things will slow down a bit very soon so we can get this quality time in!

Needing:  A pedicure, badly!  Seriously, I can't believe that I have been leaving the house with sandals on at all....I hope to be able to fit this in asap as well!

3 vacay essentials:  1.  Relaxation, I know I keep saying that, but it's a must...this year has been very stressful, for many different's time to get back to time with the family, and chill!
2. Family time-with all of the hustle and bustle of different schedules, and to-dos, I feel like time spent together gets pushed off too much.  Summer is a great time for us to recharge our batteries together.  We'll do this camping together, visiting with relatives, and I am very much looking forward to spending time with my best friend and her new born baby boy! <3  3. Outdoor adventures with my boys-I can't wait to go camping, it's a family favorite!  We also are looking forward to exploring trails while hiking, swimming at a local lake, taking walks, play ground trips, etc.  I am also really hoping that this year we will be able to go white water rafting as a family!  I went once as a child and loved it.  I've been wanting to go as a family, and we were just waiting for our youngest to be old enough and comfortable with the idea.  Now that he's ten, I think it's the time! =)

To all of the teachers who are already enjoying their summer vacations, I am jealous!  I will be in school until June 24th!  But, if things continue the way they have been, it's going to fly by, and I will be joining you very soon!  Happy June! =)
