Can you believe that it is July already?! Why oh why does it seem like the summer just flies right past us?? I hope you are all getting the very most you can out of your summer! We as teachers have a lot of recharging to do before school starts up again!!
Since it's the very first day of July, that means it's time to link up with the amazing Farley for her monthly Currently link up! Read all about what I'm Currently up to!! :-)
My dad is a HUGE fan of the History Channel, my sister and I grew up watching it. While my sister no longer has a taste for it, I find myself tuning in more often than not! At the moment I am learning all sorts of interesting tidbits about Benjamin Franklin. I never knew he floated naked in the Boston Channel as he was pulled along by a kite, did you?
I am SO EXCITED to be able to be a weight-bearing person again! I have finally been given the go-ahead to practice walking! I must wear my leg brace and use the walker, but I CAN WALK AGAIN!!! After being stuck on the couch since January, I am so excited to be able to FINALLY get up and start building my strength back. I'm slower than molasses flowing uphill in a Vermont winter, but I AM WALKING!!!
Since most of my time is spent on the couch due to still being new at getting to walk, I've had a lot of time to think. I have created lists and lists of different creations I want to make for my TPT store, and I really want to get some more products listed before the summer is over! I don't think I should have too much trouble, since I can't be up and about and sitting on the couch creating activities is about the only thing I can do!
I REALLY want to get a few pages finished in my 'adult' coloring book. I always feel a bit weird calling it an 'adult' coloring book, like that makes it somehow X-rated! I found this amazing book on Amazon, and I'm so excited to start working on it!
I have been working on my Sweet Skills for the Beginning of the Year packet for WEEKS!! I am trying really hard to finish it up, especially since I'd like to showcase it during the TPT Seller Challenge this week, Create a Masterpiece!
My All Star quality would have to be my ability to listen. I am always willing to listen to the people I care about whenever they need someone to vent to. I understand the difference between venting in frustrating and bitterly complaining. I only offer advice if asked, and will sit and listen for as long as you need to talk. If you do ask for advice, I'm not going to sugar-coat it for you. However, I will try to offer advice from both sides of the story (since most stories have more than one side). If all you want me to do is listen, you can be assured whatever you say to me stays with me. People tend to stop letting you listen to them if you're going around sharing whatever they tell you.
I had a really great time linking up with Farley for her July Currently. There are many other bloggers who linked up too, so make sure to head over to her blog and read all about it!
You can still link up with me for Spotlight Saturday and showcase your favorite products, resources, activities, and ideas! It's a great way to learn about the amazing things out there which can help us in our classrooms or our lives!
