Goodies in the Mail!!

So who knew the post office delivers on Sunday?!  (They do!) And let me tell you, friends, I was so, SO excited when I saw that white mail truck roll on up and stop at my house!

A few days ago, I decided to make my own planner this year. After much research on TpT and Pinterest, I decided to go with an Arc Planner. I ordered some of the accessories online from Amazon, and I'll make the meat of it.  I also went a little crazy ordering some Washi tape-which I've never used before I'm giddy with excitement to use it in my planner. (hee hee)'s what I got:

I'm still waiting for the discs for the planner.  And I have to finish creating the pages, and then I can start assembling.  I'll post pics of it once it's done.

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Currently-on time!

Wait! What? I'm actually on time for a Currently! Yippee! I'm so excited! It's actually still Aug. 1st, here in Oregon.  If you haven't already linked up with Farley at Oh'Boy 4th Grade, be sure to do so (even if it isn't Aug. 1 when you do).

Listening: So, believe it or not, I have Sports Center on. (The hubs is still at work)  There is absolutely nothing on right now, and I just need noise-other than the AC.

Loving: I still have one month of summer left. I don't report back to school until Sept. 2. I love that I can still sleep in, even though I do have to start getting into the school mode-so much to do...

Thinking: So, here in Oregon, we have been having record-breaking high temperatures! It's been over 100 degrees the past few days.  Now, I'm used to heat, being from SoCal, but I honestly thought when I got to Oregon, my summer would normalize, and it would be in the 80's, maybe low 90's come August.  This heat is ridiculous! I wish it would just rain!! 

Wanting: I really want to get into my new classroom. This is going to be my first year in this room, first year at this school, and I know I have a TON of work to do to get it to my liking.  I have ideas for bulletin boards that I'd like to get started on, but I don't know what the bulletin board situation is. I also need to get a handle on room organization, all feel me-I'm sure.

Needing: I brought teacher's guides for each subject home in June, and I haven't looked at one. I really, really need to open those up! 

B2S RAK: Since I'm going to be the "newbie" at this school, I thought I'd drop notes in other teacher's mailboxes as pick-me-ups with kind words. Also, give my kids random notes throughout the year-just because.

So there you go! Now, be sure to link up here.

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your Sunday, and have a wonderful week! And best of luck if you are starting next week!
