Currently August

Time seems to fly in the summer, doesn't it? It feels like just yesterday it was the last day of school... and now, here we are! The Sunday night of the summer.  Linking up with Farley from Oh Boy Fourth Grade for Currently.



Listening: Silence! Moms, you totally understand how glorious this is when you have a toddler. I relish in the quiet I get for a couple hours each night.

Loving: I don't go back for a month. A GLORIOUS month! I am going to love every second of our late start this year. We always head back the week before Labor day, which just happens to be late this year. It's pretty great.

Thinking: starting to put some ideas together for my classroom. I haven't gotten serious yet, but I have some new thoughts!

Wanting: Does this need explanation? Summer nights.... :)

Needing: I'm thinking tomorrow we will hit the beach. We live so close to the coast that it's hard to stay away in the summer time! It's been too long for people who live so close.

RAK: I love the idea of doing some random acts of kindness for BTS. Who doesn't love a good treat in the teacher's lounge??

Enjoy August, everyone!

    1. The silence is seriously great, isn't it? Of course, I may cherish it even more as my child plays with his electronic keyboard toy as I type.... :)

    1. I LOVE Orangeleaf! Thank goodness it is in the next city over... if it was in my city I'd probably need to go to the gym a whole lot more! haha.

    1. Isn't a quiet house such a gift? But, on the other hand, if it were always quiet I would be terribly sad. I suppose there is such thing as too much of a good thing. :) Nice to "meet" you!

  6. I would LOVE some silence! What a treat that is!! Have so much fun at the beach! That sounds amazing!! We did get to hang out at the beach for a few days this summer, but it took us a few hours to get there! Enjoy your month!!

  7. Oh I am so jealous of the quiet house! I am currently listening to one toddler's frustration of not getting the shopping cart into the backyard. Another one is asking for juice and the 60lb dog is trying to climb in my lap while I am drinking coffee. Please tell me how you found a quiet house:) I need tips! Enjoy your day at the beach.

  8. I love when my hubby goes for a run because I shut off the TV and enjoy the sound of silence. On days when he is at work, I can sit an entire day with no background noise. It's just so relaxing, not to mention the fact that it really helps me to focus. A beach day sounds lovely. I'm hoping to squeeze one in this coming week too!

    1. There is really something to be said for silence, isn't there? I feel so much more centered when it is quiet! I don't mind a little quiet music in the background, either, but anything more than that distracts me. Unless I'm reading that is... I could read as a parade went by. I totally get "in the zone" when I read!

  9. I am currently enjoying silence as well! I've got a napping 2 year old! :)
