I sort of fell off the Bloggy Bus for a few months... and now I am ready to re-visit the Blogiverse. I can't think of any better way to do that than though Currently...
I'm not a real bird fan, but I am in awe of any creature that can build a nest and nurture their young in the middle of chaos--guess it's a bit like their human counterparts. We live in a lots-of-people-in-a-little-area place. Yet, every year, the black phoebe returns to lay eggs in the same location under the eaves. This year there are three birdies-to-be...
Which brings me to JUNE. I think June is a difficult month for sixth grade teachers (at an elementary school). I feel an enormous sense of responsibility in ensuring that my students have everything they need to move on to middle school. And with 35 kiddos, that is SO hard to do. I always wish that we could have done more... but I am celebrating the fact that middle schools will be receiving students who have caring hearts, who have been accepting of kids with all kids of abilities and disabilities, and who know that stamina and a desire to learn are skills that are essential to success.
There are so many hings happening in the next two weeks! We have lots of activities and events scheduled. And then on June 13th, Promotion will be here and the minutes will tick away until they are middle schoolers.
I just wish a Magic Fairy would appear and take care of my Report Cards. I would gladly pay... Cash? Check? Starbucks?!
I am REALLY looking forward to summer this year. There are several books that I want to read (more than ten at last count!) and I am just looking forward to the slow and leisurely pace of a day that does not begin at 4:14 in the morning. I am making a commitment to relax and enjoy life this summer--a new skill for me... but, I think, an important one!
Best of all, I will be seeing my buddy, Barbara Gruener, from the Corner on Character this summer! She is the keynote speaker at the Character Matters Summer Conference in my area and I am so excited to learn from her (and to clap loudly and say WooooHoooo!) Barbara's book will soon be available at Amazon!
So those are my Current(ly) reflections. Even though I am actually linking up on the first day of June, I did not make it into the first hundred... But that's okay. My purple square will be among my BloggyPeeps' buttons and my heart is happy to be connecting with Farley. Yep, you guessed it: She another one of my favorite Texas bloggers. How lucky we all are...
So, click to link up. And, as Farley reminds us: Leave some love to those before you and after you... and, I think, all over the Currently page!
