Currently

I haven't done a "Currently" with Oh Boy Fourth Grade in awhile. It's so fun!

Listening- I am currently listening to "The Bachelor". I say "listening" and not watching because it is actually my husband who is watching it.  Yup.  For real. I think I'd rather pluck my eyelashes out one at a time but he seems to get some enjoyment out of watching this train wreck.

Loving- my son just began out of district placement. He is sooo happy and for the first time in a long, long time I have my happy go-lucky son back. All of the emails, meetings, phone calls, and every tear I shed over this has all been worth it. He still struggles with his dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia but he is learning some very valuable strategies.

Thinking- Am I ever going to get all this stuff done?  I have 13 days of school left. All the assessments, the data recording, the slideshow, the report cards...Ok. I need to stop. I can feel the stress building.

Wanting- June 19th.  Enough said. :)

Needing- A fenced in yard. I love my beagle but I really hate walking him in the dark. In the pouring rain. In the cold, humidity. You name it.  Hubby says we have to wait until next year's tax return.  So it looks like Bentley and I will be struttin' our stuff through wind, snow, sleet, and hail so he can continue to sniff every leaf, plant, and shrub on Flintlock Rd.

Summer- I cannot wait to go to Las Vegas again for the Teachers Pay Teachers Conference. I am sooo excited that my husband, Kriss who designs clipart on TpT is coming too! Kriss is an architect and he designed The Venetian back in the early 90's.  To be able to go together is exciting and fun! 

I also can't wait to read a few books which I never have the chance to do during the school year.

Our annual week long summer vacation on Cape Cod is something we always look forward to.

Stop over to Farley's blog and link up to share your Currently!

    1. Ha! I know, right? I remember when he knocked on the outside wall to show me that they really aren't brick they're foam. It's a less expensive way to create the look of brick. What?! My mind was blown. :)

  2. That is so cool that your husband designed the Venetian! It is beautiful. And I am so glad your son is doing well. I can't imagine what a relief that must be for you. Hope to meet you in Vegas!

    1. Oh no! That's not fair. It should be the other way around so you can get some stuff done around the house before you are "on the go" non-stop. Almost....the end is in sight. Have a terrific summer!

    1. Karen, you will love it! The best part is meeting all the various bloggers. Make sure to save all those business cards you get. They come in really handy when you coordinate linkies, etc. I hope to meet you!

  6. I had fun reading this post! So glad your son is happy! I feel bad for you that you have until June 19...but I bet you don't have to go back August 10 like I do! Can you post your husband's clipart link? I'd love to follow his store!

  7. Congrats on getting your happy son back! I have a sometimes not so happy nephew that I would like back. It's great you and your husband will be attending the conference together. Will you be tag-teaming the sessions? So helpful!

  8. I want a fenced in backyard too! I usually don't mind walking my baby but when she's taking forever to find a spot in the torrential downpours-yeah, not fun!
