Ahhhh...Summertime is HERE!!! & a Giveaway

Oh the sweet smell of summertime...no schedules, no lesson plans, no alarm clocks {well, except for my little guys who seem to wake up earlier in the summer than they do during the school year!} Did you notice, I didn't say "no blogging"? I just can't seem to get enough of this blogging stuff-even if it is summertime! I've made so many wonderful friends through the blogging world that it would be impossible for me to take a summer break from that too! Much love to all my "bloggin' buddies"!!! And speaking of my Bloggin' Buds...a bunch of us have teamed up with the fabulous Katie King from Queen of the First Grade Jungle. She is hosting a SUPER HUGE GIVEAWAY with some Fab-U-Lous prizes.

I will be giving away my "Wild About School" jungle unit {perfect for back-to-school.} Be sure to head on over to Katie's blog to check out the other amazing prizes from Rachelle, Natalie, Michelle, Reagan, Jodi, Hadar & Jena! {Congrats Katie on reaching 1000 followers!}

Well I've been so eager for the summer and... now it's here and I just took a look at my "Summer To-Do" list...AUGH!!!!!!! It is sooooo stinkin' long! How did that happen??? Last year I decided to teach summer school & guess what? Yep, nothing was crossed off of my "2011 Summer To-Do List" so all of those things have been tacked onto my list for this summer! I'm pretty excited to say that we got started on a few of those projects around the house this weekend...and I'm starting to work on some of those unit requests that I've promised to finish up over the summer. I'm also hoping for a little vacation...still searching for the perfect spot though. Any ideas??? What kind of little vacation trips do you have planned for this summer?


  1. I am headed to the Grand Palladium Resort in Jamaica for an all inclusive trip in a few weeks! I am so super excited!! It has been many years since I've been on a real vacation. :)

  2. Hi! Lucky you - I still have a week of school left followed by 2 1/2 workdays! :(
    I am your newest follower & I also teach first grade. I can't wait til summer so I can spend lots of time looking around. You know how crazy the last few days of school can be.
