The One in July 2015

Dear Summer,
You seem to be in such a hurry to leave.  Please don't rush out the door.  I'm enjoying our time together.  

The Classy Teacher

Seriously though...why does time move faster during the summer?  It's just not fair.

On a more positive note, it is time to link up with Farley for the July edition of Currently.  This is easily one of my favorite link ups.

Listening: Summer vacation means Netflix binge.  I'm currently watching Gilmore Girls.  I've seen all of the episodes a thousand times, but I love this show.  Next up is Heartland, a new to me show.

Loving: Date nights have looked a little different lately.  My husband and I are in the process of adopting eight beautiful children.  We have been picking two or three of them up at a time for little date nights.  It is a fun way to get to know them.

Thinking: When I'm not with them I'm always thinking about our eight beautiful children.  I miss them.  It gets harder and harder to say goodbye at the end of the visit.

Wanting: I have accepted a position in a new school district.  I will be teaching 6th grade Math and Science and I'm thrilled to be teaching science again.  Due to administration being gone on vacation, I have not had a chance to get into my new room.  I am so ready to get in there and start decorating and settling in.

Needing:  With the adoption of eight kids we are going to be purchasing a new vehicle soon.  We have decided on what we want, now we just have to find the best deal.

All Star: I love all things organization.  Organization makes me giddy.  Unfortunately I'm not as organized as I would like to be.  However, I am an expert at appearing to be organized.  Take one look and I'm sure to trick you into thinking I'm the most organized person ever.

I hope you will go over to Farley's blog and check out all the other Currently post.


  1. Wow! Can I just say I loved reading your currently and learning that you all are adopting 8 beautiful kids. That's just amazing and such a wonderful thing to do!!
    I'm glad to read that I'm not the only one who loves things organization, but still needs to work on it. I pretty much think I've got the "looking organized" thing I just actually have to get organized! :)
    So glad I found your blog on the link up. I can't wait to read more about these 8 amazing kids you are adopting!

  2. OMG how exciting about the adoption. Eight at one time is just wild. Can't wait to hear all about it once everything is finalized. Your life will be getting so much busier, crazier, and much much more love filled. Congrats!

  3. Ok, I'm hooked on your story! I'm dying to know more! =) 8 at one time! Wow. I do foster care but have yet to adopt. So I understand that tug on your heart.

  4. I agree the summer months seem to fly by! Very exciting news about the adoption! Just so you know I plan on having a linky party next week! I just posted all about it. Hopefully you will be able to link up!
