Currently in July

Farley, over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade is hosting her monthly "currently" and I can't believe it's already July! Time is flying by.

Listening: I'm a huge fan of country music, and I always think country music is the perfect addition to summer time. Sun, surf, an ice cold beer, and a little country music.

Loving: My family just returned from a little trip to the mountains. I absolutely love Lake Tahoe, it's so gorgeous and there are a ton of things to do: biking, swimming, boating, shops... and casinos. Sadly I did not walk away a winner... but a friend who was there at the same time, she won $1100 on a Wheel of Fortune slot. I was not as fortunate.

Thinking: I'm heading down to Disneyland on Wednesday, and I'll be spending three days at both Disneyland and California Adventure. I absolutely love all things Disney, so obviously I'm excited!

Wanting: It's been ridiculously hot here in northern California. Multiple 100+ days. It's 9:45pm and it's still 87 degrees outside. On Tuesday it's supposed to be 113. That's just too much.

 Needing: My car just returned from Lake Tahoe, and man does it show! It's covered in dirt, dead bugs... all those lovely mountain things. I need to wash it. Desperately.

Tips, Tricks, or Hints: I always try to do something over the summer that I enjoy... this summer I'm going to 2 different country concerts with friends. I'll be seeing Luke Bryan and Brad Paisley in August. I love seeing live music. There's nothing like it.


  1. Luke and Brad and Mickey; what an awesome summer you have ahead of you! Our school started completely following common core for math and ELA this past school year and boy was it exhausting and super stressful! Everyday was about inventing new material or sourcing it. You are lucky you are being given transition time. Good Luck!

    1. Thankfully my district is giving us transition time... but a lot of us are ripping the band-aid off in terms of our ELA work. Math will be harder, until we get the new texbooks.

  2. I'm going to Tahoe next week. It's one of my favorite places to go! I'm with you on this heat! I'm in Oakley and this 105+ heat is killing me! Ugh! I'm a new follower. :)
