June Currently

Oh my goodness, it is already time for the June Currently. I CAN NOT believe it. Now, don't get me wrong, I am totally ready for June to get its lil hiney into gear, I just amazed at how it is all the sudden here. So, anyway, I am linking up once again with the fabulous Farley over at Oh Boy, 4th Grade to share in the Currently fun.
Listening: So my hubs is born and raised in the South but he is a die hard Chicago Cubs fan. The game on in the background is soothing while I type away. Weird? Maybe...but I love it. 

Loving: 11 days my friends! This will be my FIRST EVER "teacher summer" and I just over the moon excited to not be working. WAHOO! 

Thinking: The end of the year rush is in full swing and I have lots of lose ends to tie up in pretty little bows in the next 11 days. 

Wanting: We start on End of Grade assessments tomorrow morning. My darlings are as ready as they can be and I just want them to be cool, calm, and collected. They rock and it sucks that they have to spend 6 plus hours testing over the next 2 days. They are 8 & 9 years old of gosh sakes! Oy. 

Needing: There are a lot of changes coming our way as teachers in North Carolina and at my school. I need to remind myself to focus on what I have control over and stay positive about my career. 

Summer Bucket List: As mentioned earlier, I am not working at all this summer, WAHOO! I am looking forward to relaxing, enjoying my time off, and reading all of the books I have been collecting over the school year. 

Congrats to those who are already on break! For those (like me) who are counting down the days, stay sane, strong, and fabulous! We got this! 


  1. If my husband wasn't working, we would be watching the Cubbies! He is a die hard Cub fan. I have grown to love them. My son was named for two former Cub players, and my dog is Wrigley! My son lives in your lovely state now. I think things are changing all around in education. I don't worry because I am finishing year 31, but am concerned for young teachers. Just wondering what book is first on your list?

  2. 11 days!! You're so close :) I hope you enjoy your first "Teacher summer" and don't worry too much about those changes. I'm worried to death about them here in GA, too, but like you said, nothing I can do about them. Time to enjoy YOUR break and realize it's always gonna change. So glad to have found you & your cute blog :)

  3. Yup, the end of the school year is always super busy. Changes are definitely happening all around and I appreciate your positive outlook. I have been teaching 20 years and I can still get frazzled by things out of my control. Good luck to you Amanda and enjoy your soon to come summer vacation.

  4. As a native Chicagoan I'm obligated to tell you that sadly your husband is cheering for the wrong Chicago team. ;) Just kidding! There's something magical about a game at Wrigley. I can't wait to relax this summer as well!
