May Currently and What I have been up to

Hey friends!

Remember me?

It has been way too long since I posted anything and I have missed it. Last time I posted I was just getting into the National Board process. Well 5 months later and I have 2 weeks until I have to submit all of my evidence and papers. (Ekkkk!) Everyone I talked to before starting this process said that it was crazy and rewarding. I just was not prepared for how much it has taken over my life. Well thankfully I am close to completing all of my requirements.

On to my May Currently!

Farley from Oh' Boy 4th Grade!

Listening: My family is a soccer family all the way. Saturday and Sunday mornings we watch English Premiere soccer. It is almost the League Championship so the games have been full of upsets and really good.

Loving: This last week I have been waking up 1-2 hours before my alarm and have not been able to fall back asleep. :( One of my co-workers reminded me that the end of the year is very similar to the beginning of the year. For me this means that I have a hard time shutting off my brain because I am thinking of all the things I need to remember to do.

Thinking: All of my papers for my National Boards are due May 16th. I should be finalizing all of the corrections I need to make on it instead of getting wrapped up wasting time online with Pinterest and Facebook.

Wanting: I desperately need new shoes for school. My old flats have holes in both heels and they have started to get me blisters. It has been so hot here lately that I am really limited on which shoes I can wear to school that won't kill my feet and are still practical for school. We are not supposed to wear open-toed shoes to school however I don't have any other schools that are appropriate for school. Any suggestions? Any brand of shoes that you can't live without that are fabulous?

Needing: One of the last things I need to do is to scan all of my evidence for my Boards, proving all of the things I talked about in my paper. I just got a new printer a couple of months ago and I haven't figured out how to use the scanner feature yet. Hopefully it is as easy as it looks.

Surprise: Have you checked out Nicole Swisher's blog All Things Apple in 2nd Grade? She's fabulous! She has some great ideas and her Reading Skills Posters are wonderful.

I am looking forward to getting back to blogging and creating more units.

Happy weekend!
