I have to admit, this time I was a little teary as we drove down the road, away from so many of our nearest and dearest. I'm a person who likes change, so our move to NC was a big adventure for me, and I was really excited about it! At the time, I don't know if I really let myself feel the pain of leaving behind almost everyone that I know.
And we've been loving it in NC...we've met so many awesome people and discovered so many beautiful places!
But this time when we left...I felt the pain. I miss everyone already :(
OK...on to happier things...my August Currently:
We spent 14 1/2 hours in the car yesterday driving back to NC from WI. Why is it so exhausting to SIT AND DO NOTHING for so long??? Besides that, my kids are all teenagers, so they sleep until noon on a normal day.
Don't get me wrong, I love my brother, and the bed at his house is perfectly comfortable, but there's NOTHING like sleeping in your own bed after being away for a couple of weeks. AAHHHH!!!
I'm SO excited to go to the Carolina bloggers meet up later today. I can't wait to meet all of these talented ladies! We're going out to dinner tonight, and then to a dueling piano bar...HOW FUN IS THAT?!?!?! BTW, the new outfit isn't going to happen...no time or $$ for that right now.
I SO want to get into my classroom (my FIRST classroom...yay!!!) and start puttering around. BUT, the school I teach at runs summer camps all summer long, and uses the classrooms, so I can't get in until our first teacher day on the 19th. I guess I'm just going to have to make really good use of my time that first week back :)
B2S Must Haves
1. I LOVE the Papermate Flair felt tip markers in all of the fun colors. I even color code my days so I know which day I wrote whichever note/comment/grade I'm looking at.
2. It's hot in NC until late September-early October, so I'll be wearing sandals as much as possible. I love my b.o.c. by Born because they're SO comfy and cute! And they have a back strap, so I won't walk out of my sandals while I'm teaching. I have two pair...one I found on clearance at Belk's for a really good price, and one I ordered off of the Internet because the first pair was so awesome.
3. I love my Teacher Binder from Little Lovely Leaders!!! I used it last year, and it has all of the dividers and pages that I needed. I love the chevron backgrounds, and the cute fonts and clip-art. I had several teachers ask me about it last year because they thought it was so cute. Bridget has updated the calendars for the 2013-14 school year, so I just need to print those out, and I'll be ready to go again. Go check it out!
Don't forget to go and check out all of the other Currently's at Oh Boy 4th Grade!
OK...I'm off to the grocery store! Have a great day!
