Ok, I admit it. Until I logged into Bloglovin' this afternoon, I had no idea it was Friday. I guess that's what happens during the lazy, hazy days of summer? I felt like The Dowager Countess of Grantham from Downton Abbey.
Every day is a weekend until September, and I love it! :)
I'm seriously excited today because I bought a new laptop.
I've always had PCs, but strangely also had iPhones/iPads since they were released. When my current computer was on the way out, I finally decided to make the leap to mac. I am loving my new Macbook Air! I haven't moved my files over yet, so fingers crossed that goes smoothly.
PSA- Right now, Apple is giving a $100 gift card with the purchase of a Macbook in addition to it's educator pricing! Sweet deal, probably the best one you will see for a while. If you are debating buying a computer, now is the time!
So, fellow Mac users- what are the MUST HAVE apps and programs???
I am loving the all the time I get to spend with my little dude.
I know everyone says that you fall in love as soon as you have a baby, but I never really understood what that meant until my little guy came into the world. Seriously, I would move mountains for him. <3 nbsp="" p="">
One of the reasons I love summer so much is that it gives me a chance to reflect on my teaching. I can read books, think about lessons, and create new materials. I'm kicking off my school prep by re-reading Teach Like A Pirate by Dave Burgess.
If you haven't read this book, I highly recommend it! It's seriously good. After I read it, I always feel so energized and revitalized. I think the major message in this book is that it is okay to have fun. In fact, it's preferable! Kids that have fun while learning are more likely to remember what they learn. I really recommend this book to all teachers, especially after you have had time to rest and recharge.
Hubby, baby, and I are headed out on vacation next week! This'll be our view for the week...

Can't wait to relax and enjoy family time! :)
Happy Friday, friends!
