Five for Friday**

Hi Friends! It's that time again.., linking up for Five for Friday!**

**- on Saturday. Oops!





I just signed up to participate in a blog swap again this year! I LOVED doing it last year, and can't wait to participate again! This year, it's being hosted by Miss, Hey, Miss. Check it out here.



I'm totally jealous of all the blogger meet-ups I keep seeing online! Is anyone else? We should totally do a Massachusetts teacher blogger meetup! Bloggers in Southern NH, RI, or even CT and ME could join us, too. Love it! Click here to sign up and get more info.


The countdown to back-to-school is on! Two weeks from Monday teachers report, and the next day is student report day. I can't believe summer is almost over! It flew by this year... and I didn't even get a good beach day in! I have to fix that before school starts up again. 


This totally ins't blog related, but I have to share. In Massachusetts, we have a small family owned supermarket chain called Market Basket (although it used to be called DeMoulas, so everyone still refers to it as that!). They are headquartered north of Boston, but have stores throughout New England. The shares are divided between many family members, but 2 cousins are the primary leaders. Strangely, they are both named Arthur. Arthur S is the "evil" cousin, and has fired Arthur T- who is much beloved among customers and employees. Arthur T is known for his compassion and kindness toward employees. When the stock market crashed, he replaced over a million dollars in lost stock for employees so they wouldn't lose their retirements. Long story short, thousands of non-unionized employees have been on strike since Arthur T was fired! The stores are empty and sales are down 95%. Customers are "on strike" too- no one I know is shopping there for anything. It's pretty crazy, and it's currently at a stalemate. Read more from Boston.com here.


I finished a new little something for my TpT store!


It's an "Under the Sea" ocean themed behavior management clip chart. Students start on "Ready to Learn" and move up or down based upon their choices. My little darlings reset weekly, so every Monday is a fresh start! It's on sale for $1 for a few days... but watch for a flash freebie! :)

Have a great weekend!




August Currently

Wait, how is it August? Where did July go? I think this means the countdown to back to school is officially on... :( Linking up with Farley for this month's Currently!


Listening: I've recently discovered So You Think You Can Dance. Seriously, how did I not watch this before? So good! I binged on the re-runs On Demand (or XFinity... or whatever it's called now!) during late night feedings, and now I'm hooked.

Loving: My new little guy. How has 8 weeks already gone by? It's the strangest feeling because it feels as though he was born yesterday, but at the same time I can't remember life without him. <3 p="">

Thinking: I am just FULL of ideas for this year! So much going on, so much to do, and so much to be excited about. I'm psyched to go back and try it all out!

Wanting: I can't wait for hubby to get home so I can go out for my run today. I got a running stroller (the BOB- it's fantastic!) but I think that my little one is just a bit too small to go with me. A few more weeks and he can join me. :)

Needing: Seriously, how does someone that weighs 12 lbs make more laundry than my husband and I combined? It's insane!! 

1st day back: Teachers report on my birthday this year! I've never, ever worked or gone to school on my birthday. Not once in my whole life! What a terrible time to start... my first day away from the baby is also my birthday.  Boo!
