September 2014 Currently, Labor Day Sale, and Upcoming Giveaway!

We have already been back in school for a full two weeks so far,  and now it is September! The first of the month means it is time to link up with the one and only Currently from Farley!  I love her camping theme this month - perfect for Labor Day Weekend!  Even though our only camping trip this summer was a bit of a dud - we got rained out!

That would be the view from our tent...

Anyway, back to Currently:

Listening: It seems like my boys are constantly wrestling around!  Joys of being a boy mom!

Loving: After having the same students for two years in a row, I was worried about what the new batch would be like, but I am loving them!  I have some great personalities this year. I just forgot how young brand new third graders are compared to end of the year fourth graders.  Lots and lots of independence training going in right now.

Thinking: To say that my boys are animal lovers would be putting it mildly.  A few weeks ago they brought home a stray kitten that was so tiny and not really ready to be momless.  They have nursed him back to health, and I was hoping to give him away, but he is so stinkin' adorable that even I can't say no.  He is here to stay.

Wanting: Ahhh!  The pain of back to school blisters!  Just once I would love to find a pair of shoes that leaves me blisterless and comfortable for the first few weeks of school.  I've been eyeing the Tieks for ever, but am worried about the cost - are they worth it?

Needing: A fellow teacher and I took a science course this summer, and part of it includes a field trip to the hot air balloon races.  We are making model hot air balloons using tissue paper to launch at the field trip.  I am worried that we won't get them done in time...

3 Trips: I would love to go to Tahiti, Ireland, and Mexico.

On another note - I am celebrating Labor Day Weekend with a sale!  Head on over to save 20% today only! 

And, I am blown away that I have reached over 700 followers, and I will be hosting a giveaway next week in honor of that.  If you have a TpT store and would like to donate to the giveaway, fill out the form below:

  1. Hi Kelly!

    I found you through Farley's Currently. I understand the shoe situation. It takes a bit for our feet to adjust back to all of the walking we do and comfortable shoes are a must. Love your vacation destinations - Mexico and Tahiti sound fantastic! Enjoy the rest of your 3 day weekend!

  2. Being a mom of boys is the best (although very loud and crazy)! I love hot air balloons. What a fun field trip! Hope you can get them all done in time. I'm signing up to help with your giveaway. Come check mine out, too! It starts tomorrow!

    Don't Let the Teacher Stay Up Late

  3. Wow! That sounds like one of the coolest field trips! Memories for everyone I am sure. Ireland is also one of the 3 trips I chose. I have never been there but every time I see pictures I smile. My husbands ancestors are from Ireland so someday we will make it there.

  4. I just donated a winner's choice. Thanks for the chance to participate in your giveaway, and congratulations on reaching 700 followers. I used to teach a grade 2/3 loop, so beginning third graders seem SO mature to me! (Compared to beginning 2nd graders.) Your camping trip looks WET. I'm a new follower! Have a great week!

  5. We start back to school this week. I totally understand the need for comfortable shoes. I go shoe shopping at the end of a school day (not in September) and wear them around the store. If they work then, I will probably be okay.

  7. Congratulations on the 700 follwers that is fantastic!!! I donated my number 1 best seller :)
