Is It July???? NOOOOOOOOO! Farley's July Currently

I can't believe I posted yesterday now I am posting today but I can't miss Farley's July Currently even though I will probably be the 1 millionth link up.  Farley has an amazing following.   Jump over to Oh' Boy 4th Grade to check out some other teachers' amazing blogs.  It is so much fun to check out what others are up to on their summer break.

Here is my Currently.....
Listening & Loving:  All my kids are still asleep and I am enjoying the peace and quiet before the craziness starts when they all get up.  Here are my 2 toenail tapping dogs.  I guess I need to put toenail trimming on my list today.

Thinking:  I need to work on some school stuff or things for my Teachers Pay Teachers store.  I just can't seem to get motivated. My break just really started last Friday since I was on the Cleveland Diocese science curriculum team.  We just spent the last 9 days writing the science curriculum for k - 8th grade for the entire Cleveland Diocese.  I really enjoyed the writing process and met some amazing teachers.

Wanting: Breakfast but I don't want to wake the kids up just yet.  Shhhhhhhhh!  Pss by the way I gave up and made some toast.  No sleepy kids up yet. 

Needing:  To get this day going so I can clean out the basement (too many toys and junk), work on my TpT stuff (science fair packet), wash my bedroom curtains and clean out my kitchen cabinets and cupboards.  I love to organize and throw things out but I need to get off my butt!  I always have all these plans but POOF before I know it the day is over. 

Blogging Tips:  I have a hard time finding time to blog during the school year but I thought of trying to use a calendar to schedule blog posts and ideas.  Also to get more followers, Linky Parties are the key.  The more you do Linky Parties it gets your blog out there.  Especially Farley's Currently from  Oh' Boy 4th Grade.  So come check out the party, leave some comments and find a new blog or two to follow.



  1. I think I've found a fellow Ohioan! :) Your doggies are adorable, and I know what it's like to schedule blog/TpT time. I'm working on the same thing!

    Carried Away in... K!

  2. Hi Wendy!
    I am glad to be a new follower! Don't you just love how Currently connect people?
    I, too, am loving the peace and quiet. I want to sit and enjoy my coffee and enjoy the non-classroom sounds of summer...
    Good luck with everything on your To Do list!

  3. Hi Wendy- I feel like I am listening to my dog's toes all over the hard floors all day too. You are so right about joining linkys! Good luck!

  4. I just posted my first currently and have spent way to long poking around blogs I found linked up there. I haven't really done a linky and it has been great! I teach K-6 math and am so excited to check out your blog! I also find it hard to balance kids, blogging and creating products, but I love the entire blogging community!

    The Math Maniac

  5. I am going to have to set up a time to just work on my blog once school starts. It is tooooooo easy to get lost in the blog-world. I LOVE reading other teachers blogs about what goes on in their classrooms. Good thing I don't have anything else (like work) to do right now, otherwise I'd be in trouble! Good tip!
