July Currently

How is it July 1st already?! I've only been on break for a few days; it seems like we go later and later each year. Wasn't summer 2 1/2 months when I was in school? I swear it was!

Listening: to Curious George...not my favorite show, but Little Guy loves it. Give me Super Why, Sid the Science Kid, Word World, Wild Kratts, or Sesame Street! At least George isn't as bad as Caillou!! That is one whiny and annoying little kid!

Loving: I love that I get to spend 2 months with my boy! Yes, it's exhausting at times--thank goodness for naps!--but it's definitely fun to have all that quality time together.

Thinking: My to-do list is a mile long...I should really get started on crossing some of those items off...painting, organizing, decorating, and various other projects always await me in the summer. It's a looong list, people! Who has the time or energy during the school year? Not me. :)

Wanting: A pool, since Nolan and I are home all summer, of course we want a pool! And, when he's older, I'd MUCH rather have all his friends coming here all the time rather than sending him off to swim elsewhere--especially the lake. Makes this Momma nervous!

Needing: I really need to get started on Notice & Note for the close reading workshop I'm attending in a couple weeks. For some reason, I just don't feel like reading anything school related yet :P

All Star (something you're really good at): 
Baker--I love to bake! For this weekend, I will be throwing together a fruit pizza that looks like a flag; nothing fancy, but it'll fun for the 4th and something that won't melt if it's hot. I make homemade cakes for birthdays and enjoy making cupcakes, but they're a real time sucker. Cookies, breads, and trifles are also some of my specialties.
Battle-Chooser--I've been told by administrators that I'm good at deciding which battles are worth fighting and which to ignore; I like to think that helps me out at home as Momma too. Don't let it fool you, it is different than giving-in. :)

Make sure to head over to Farley's page to link up!



I remember the days of Curious George; my little girl loved watching it. I also dream of the day when we finally get a pool. I hope you get one soon! I enjoyed reading your post, and you will have to post a pic of your fruit pizza...sounds yummy!

I had a whole to-do list for the summer, and I just haven't started on it. Hopefully you have more motivation than me! The pizza sounds amazing!
