A Little Meet Up

One of my favorite events during the summer is the blogger meet-up.  I look forward to seeing my blogging buddies in person and catching up with them.

This year we met at Houlihan's in Hershey, PA, on a perfectly sunny, breezy day.
We shared teaching stories and blogging tips and had a truly wonderful afternoon.  Here are a few pictures of our little patio party.

Meet Andrew from Mr. First Grade and his adorable wife.  
They've spent the summer traveling to England and California.
When they aren't vacationing, they give trolley tours through Hershey.
While we're talking about the trolley tours...
Here is a picture of the Mr. and Mrs. on the trolley on their wedding day.
Umm, how adorable are they?

Meet Catherine from ABC 123 Is 4 Me.  
This was her first time joining us, and I just loved her.  :)
She spent her vacation in Cancun and is heading to Alaska this week.
She traveled the farthest to meet with us, and I am so glad she did.

Meet Angie from Rulin' the Roost.  She brought her two beautiful boys.  
They visited Zoo America and Chocolate world while they were in town.  
Angie has lots of exciting changes happening in her life right now...  
a grade level switch this school year and a NEW BABY on the way!  

Love these bloggers...what a phenomenal day!

I hope you'll stop back and visit us on August 10th for a Back-to-School Blog Hop.  We'll be joining our other PA blogging buddies to share Back-to-School tips and tricks.  We've each prepared a special treat just for you.  :)

Currently July

It's July?!

I'm joining Farley to share what's happening with me, currently.

Listening:  It's morning.  It's quiet.  And peaceful.

Loving:  I'm loving my morning cup of Cinnabon coffee.  Seriously loving it.  I'm also just tad bit infatuated with my funky new running shoes. 

Thinking:  Our school is growing.  I'm changing rooms next year.  I'm wondering how everything will fit into my teeny tiny new room.  It's time to start unpacking...and purging.

My tiny new classroom.
What's not shown are the piles of boxes waiting to be unpacked.

Wanting:  I'd love a little trip to the beach.  My toes miss the warm sand.  I miss the sunshine and ocean air.

Needing: We are heading to Maryland for a lacrosse tournament.  Our son made the All American team for Pennsylvania.  His team will play Connecticut, New York, Washington DC,  and Minnesota this week. Can't wait to cheer them on, but first I need to pack my bags.

That's our boy...Lucky #7

4th Plans:  Looking forward to a low key family BBQ.

So what are you doing, currently? Hurry on over to link up with Farley and share your Currently.
