August Currently...already?!

So hard to believe it's already August! A moment of silence for those of you who are already in school, or who start next week...Yikes! I am glad that in Michigan, we are not allowed to start until after Labor Day (for the tourist industry to have one last summer holiday weekend!).

I am linking up with Farley for this month's Currently:
Listening & needing: television service is out. I haven't been able to watch much of the Olympics at all. I was spoiled by Facebook for who won gold in women's gymnastics...I wanted to be surprised! Thankfully, my best friend is DVRing gymnastics (my fave!) for me.

Thinking: Have you heard of the Color Run? I'm doing this tomorrow:
Doesn't that look like some crazy fun?! I watched a friend in a Color Run in Denver earlier this year, but have never run one myself. I'm excited! They call it the Happiest 5k on the Planet!

And my B2S:
1. Velcro...I use Velcro like it's going out of style. Communication boards, schedules, games, labels, everything is Velcroed (yes, I've made it into a verb). My favorite kind is the sticky back, preferably in pre-cut dots, even though that's more expensive. I hate, hate, hate cutting Velcro!
2. My laminator...pretty self-explanatory!
3. A new lunch bag...This coming school year my class will be eating lunch in the cafeteria for the first time (we have always eaten in our room). Since I eat with my kids, eating in "public" means I need a cute lunch bag. Of course. Since until now I have just used plastic grocery bags, and that just won't do.

Go link up here...and remember Farley's rule of three!


  1. Just found your blog through Farley's Currently. I LOVE it. I love the elephants. I also love that you teach in Michigan. I went to school in Michigan, but just moved to Thailand so the weather is quite different now :( Anyway, I hope your cable gets fixed the Olympics are wonderful!!

  2. I am visiting you from Farley's Currently, too! Your blog is so cute! I had a few friends do the Color Run a few weekends ago here in MN- it looks super fun! Have a great time!

  3. I'd never heard of a "Color Run" before, and I think I've heard of it 3 times this week! It sounds like so much fun!

    Our kids don't go back until after Labor Day, too, but we start workshops next week... 3 days of Common Core, I'm hoping it's good stuff!

    Don't you love Farley's Currentlys?

  10. eeeh, I thought about doing the Color Run in GR but I didn't sign up in time. Im loving the new blog look!

    And I order Velcro dots every year on a huge roll from some company, if you're interested I can find the name.

  11. I used the rest of my building budget before I moved on velcro! I spent a fortune but I knew I would need it for re-velcroing (see I am creating words too) a whole new room. I bought a super huge roll of soft and a matching scratchy roll. I also bought huge roles of the precut dots (1440 of each) and I am actually almost out of the soft dots... ahhh!!! It's only August! What I should have also bought were some new scissors. I too HATE cutting velcro and I have ruined/broken several pairs of scissors trying!
