Listening: My husband has a green thumb and thank goodness because it takes a lot of work to maintain a yard and garden!
Loving: I am so grateful for great friends and family. My husband graduated yesterday with his Masters in Education. The family came out to show their support and sat through the LONGEST ceremony ever and today we are having a fiesta for him with a bunch of our friends. It is just so great to have people in your life to celebrate and walk through life with!
Thinking: It has been in the 100s this past week and with our graduation fiesta today at 3 I am hoping and praying for cooler weather!
Wanting: I haven’t mentioned yet that I am moving school sites for next year. It was not by choice and I am so beyond bummed to move a school that I love so much. I have never clicked with coworkers so much before and I team with two amazing 4th grade teachers so it makes the move even harder. Three teachers, from my site with the lowest seniority were forced to move to new schools in order to make room for teachers who have previously worked at our school to return… and I was one of them. I had several offers at other schools in our district and chose a fantastic one with a great reputation! I am also excited to be able to stay in 4th grade! All that being said, I have to pack up my room and I am not looking forward to it! Not only is it a lot of work but it is emotional!
Needing: I would love some new summer clothes but I am not loving the current fashion trends that are around…
