Currently 9.3.14

So the first two days back at school have not gone very smoothly.  From the idea that we are going a bit later than what we did last year, and our bus situation, I am definitely pooped at the end of these days!   The first of the month means it is time to link up with the one and only Currently from Farley!  She did an amazing job with the camping theme - to go hand in hand with Labor Day!  Ok - so here are some before and after pictures of Mr. Mason, beginning of day 1 and end of day 2...LOVE HIM...but he really needs a good night sleep!
 So here is this month's Currently:
Listening: I am listening to Landline, audiobook on my kindle *finished it through this post, so onto another one while I complete lesson plans!*

Loving:  My hubby has been awesome for having dinner for us when we got home from school these past two days.  So amazing!  Yesterday we had to race to soccer since the buses hadn't left at the moment and it was 5:30.  Today, I just had my allergy shots after work, but I had a bad reaction to them, so it was a trying evening.  However it was made better because I did NOT HAVE TO COOK - WOOHOO!

Thinking:  I don't know about anybody else, but if you're in Virginia than you have probably heard of unpacking the standards.  It is definitely a work in progress, but any step towards the end is a step in the right direction!

Wanting:  I feel like there is just not enough time in the day, for activities that I have planned for my kids, or to get all of my son's needs met, I just want to do my own thing, and there isn't any time for that!

Needing:  A desk - mainly because I just got my 25th kid today during one of my lessons.  Seems super nice, but new students never arrive with a place to sit.  I always feel so bad for them, it is always nice to have a home or a spot to place your rump!

Trips:   Ok - so these are the next ones, these are the little bright lights at the end of the tunnel.  Plan on taking Mr. Bedford to Biltmore for his birthday this year in October, Charleston I need just as a pick me up, and I am so blessed because the main reason I go down there is because I have the best friends a girl could ask for, and one just had a baby down there, and I DESPERATELY need to see his cuteness!  Lastly, Turks and Caicos is the place we are trying to get friends and all together for a planned trip for after school gets out!  So much fun traveling with our friends!

Well that's it for this month!  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Oh I know the light at the end of the tunnel feeling with the trips. I always try to have some kind of trip (even a long weekend) planned so I can have something to get me through the last couple months of school. My husband and I are planning on, if nothing else, a 4 day trip each year...even a small one. I hope you have a great year!!

  2. I totally know what you mean about not having enough desks! I was shocked that not all of my students showed up on the first day. I had two come in late on the 2nd day of school and then 2 more on the 3rd. I ended up with 20 desks and 21 kiddos. Arg! I feel terrible sticking them at a table by themselves. Hang in there!
