Listening: to silence...perfection on a Monday morning
Monday mornings are normally pretty rough for me. I'm not a morning gal by any means, so the fact that I woke up at 9:00 and haven't done anything since then just makes my heart skip a beat :) I mean, I am fairly certain that our nation should declare 3-day weekends become the norm. Whatcha think??
Loving: Kendra Scott jewelry
Tomorrow morning will come, there's no doubt about that! One thing that has added a little spice to my morning routines is my new Kendra Scott jewelry. Cara and Hope introduced me to Kendra, and I'm addicted now. And, she just happens to be throwing a sale this weekend!
Thinking: I'm too old to skate
No matter how many 3-day weekends I have, or how much sleep I get there is one thing that I've realized... I'm not quite as young as I used to be! For Joelle's birthday I bought her some super cute skates from Zulilly. Well, for some reason I thought it would be a good idea for me to have a pair also. So, I ordered this pair from Amazon, and off to skate we went! Our first time skating together resulted in both of us on the ground time and time again because I was holding Joelle's hand, and when she fell... I fell! We are doing a little better now (as long as I stay far away from her, ha!) but I still find myself eating cement every once in a while! Last week I was sore for several days and couldn't figure out why... it's because I'm old!
Wanting: more summer time!
We really had such an amazing summer these past few months. We went to Vegas, student camp, on our cruise, and to Colorado. It was jam-packed and all kinds of fun! I would really love a summer repeat with calmer temps and relaxing weeknights. I don't need all the travel plans, just a good restaurant and my family! So, I'm really wanting a little more summertime!
Needing: to input my lesson plans
What I'm really NEEDING to do right now instead of blogging is get my lesson plans ready for the week of Sept 8th. If you don't see me sharing my visual plans this year, it's because I have to input my lesson plans in a whole new way. We've used an online system called Eduphoria for years, but I have to give details on each part of our Dual Language lesson plan cycle. Last week it took me an hour and a half, and that's with my plans roughly written out in my Erin Condren planner. So, while I really NEED to be typing lesson plans, I really don't WANT to because I know it's going to consume a whole bunch of time!
And, as far as my 3 trips go... yes, I've been to the Congo. But, I really really really want to go back to get my little boy! Did you know we've been in the adoption process for him since LAST June... as in 15 months ago?! And, it's almost been an year since we first saw his sweet face! This time around is going to take a lot longer, but I can't wait for the day when we get to pick him up! So, I had to break the rules a little bit, but I can't leave him out of my top destination choices!
Alrighty, now I'm going to head out for a family lunch date (then hopefully get a pedicure before tackling those pesky lesson plans), BUT you should visit Farley's blog and see what everyone else has going on!
