Recap and Currently

So I kinda took a little vacation from the blog! The end of May and June raced by and proved to be exhausting both physically and mentally. 

A few days after school ended I lost one of the most influential and important people in my life-my Papa. I was blessed to have had him as my grandfather and know that he is dancing in heaven with my Nani. It happened suddenly so I had to quickly fly home to be with my family. It is still hard knowing that he is gone and I wont be able to talk to him anymore but I know he is in a better place.

A week later I found myself back in the classroom teaching 3rd grade ELA summer school. We had a blast learning all about new reading strategies and our topic was Ancient Rome! Perfect for a gal who loves Ancient Civilizations!! 

Those four weeks flew by and on July 1st I officially started my new position as Assistant Principal!  Very excited to start this new journey! 

Listening: Big Brother 16 has officially started!! I caught up this weekend and this years group of people are very interesting! I love the competitions, the alliances and crazy conspiracies!  Anyone else watching? Its too early to call a winner but I already have a few people that I cant wait till they are evicted!

Loving: Nuff said! Summer school is over woot woot!!

Thinking: Are you going to the TpT Conference?!?! I can't wait!!! After looking over all the handouts even more pumped to head to Vegas! Plus getting to stay at The Venetian Hotel...heaven!!!! I have a few new restaurants I want to try this visit!

Wanting: I started my new contract already so I need to make sure that when I have the time I need to rest and relax and possibly sleep in!!

Needing: Oh my ya'll I absolutely LOVE my new office! Here are a few pictures! I need a few more accents but I am loving how things are looking!

4th Plans: Hopefully spending with friends and eating some fantastic BBQ!

Now that life is back to normal I hope to be able to get back to posting and creating new products for my TpT store!


  1. So sorry to hear about your Papa. It seems like you will have a guardian angel on your shoulder for all your new endeavors ahead as assistant principal.

    I am so excited that Big Brother is back! Three nights just aren't enough! Have fun at the TPT conference and I love your office makeover!
