Top 10.

Now that I finally have some down time.. I can finally link up with this party I've been wanting to link up with for weeks! I'm linking up with Deanna Jump from Mrs. Jump's Class for her Ten Things I Want to Do This Summer.

Moving in. Guess who's finally all moved into her new classroom? THIS GIRL! I'm loving my new classroom :) There's absolutely no exaggeration about that. The high ceilings. Awesome view. Waxed floor instead of all carpet. Tons of bulletin board and wall space. Most importantly.. I'll still have a breeze in my class! Yes! This girl is moving in this summer :)

Going back to where I'm from. I have the privilege of going back to my alma mater and teaching for the 3rd summer in a row. This will be my 2nd year of teaching Money Doesn't Grow on Trees, and it always reminds me of how to (re)create a thematic unit. Every week, I'll be blogging about my summer journey. Check out this week's adventure --> GO TO BLOG

Bookworm it. I have a stack of books that I would love to read. It ranges from teaching books to one that was recommended by a teacher friend. The 2nd edition of Daily 5 is high priority as I want to implement both math & reading next year. Currently Reading: The 5 Love Languages.


Beach bum boogie. I must admit.. summer is the most gorgeous time of year in Hawaii. I'm fortunate to grow up in such a beautiful state. This year.. I vow to take more time to get some vitamin D in my life. I want to try 2 days a week :)

Friends... I'll be there for you. I honestly have some of the best friends. As ambitious as we are.. they always make sure I don't work too hard. As 2 of my friends will be starting medical school this year, we've been trying harder than ever to spend more time together.

Wedding fever. 2 of my college friends are getting married this summer. I only can attend 1 of the weddings because the flights to Oregon were too expensive. But a B I G congratulations to my luau partner on his nuptials this past weekend to his college sweetheart! So happy for the 2 of them :)

Food runs. Something my friends & I love to do. E A T. Yes. That's how we hangout.

See Jeremy's face? That was his 1st time to Highway Inn. If you're flying into O`ahu this summer, and want reallyyy good Hawaiian food, check out Highway Inn :)

The other place my friends & I ate was at Olive Tree Cafe. Yummy Greek food fo shooo.

Sew in love with sewing. Yes. It's true. I love to sew. I have these pretty fabrics that I hope to use this summer.

Summer trainings. Our state adopted 2 new curriculums. I was already trained in our new ELA curriculum. In July, I'll be going to a 2-day training for our state's math curriculum. Guess teaching never ends...

SLEEP. Something I'm looking forward to for sure. More s l e e p. I'm excited just to sleep in some days.
