Currently September - Saddle up for Second Grade

Currently September

I cannot believe it's already September. This year just seems to be flying by so fast. I'm needing a little bit more summer time. I'm not ready to give up my days in nike shorts, no make up and not fixing my hair. It's that time again to link up with Farley for this months CURRENTLY!!!

LISTENING: Do I have any other Bobby Bones Show listeners out there? I've listened to his morning show for almost 10 years. He use to host a top 40 morning show in Texas but he has now moved to Nashville and hosts a country morning show. I'm behind so I'm catching up on the podcasts.Since I've listened to his show for so long, I feel like I know the cast members personally. My husband and I talk about them daily. 

LOVING: I've got to spend the past week with my family. I just wish it could have been under better circumstances. My husbands grandma passed away so we left the middle of last week to head up to Oklahoma City to help with arrangements. Then this weekend we came back to Texas, but instead of going home, we came to see my parents. We live about 6 hours from my husbands family and about 5 from mine. We don't get to see them often so its always nice to see everyone.

THINKING: Since I had to leave the middle of last week, I left school in a rush. I'm sure my sub plans were a mess. I've only been at school 2 days and I'm already behind. So much to do!!!! #workisneverdone

WANTING: This is the first labor day weekend I haven't spent on the lake. I'm having wake boarding withdrawals people!!!

NEEDING: The Texas TEKS (our standards) have changed this year in math. I'll be teaching place value to 1,200 instead of 999 this year. I've been working on a new unit for almost a month and I'm finally finished with it. I just need to proof read and make my examples. Stay tuned! :)

3 TRIPS: I've wanted to go Ireland and Italy for as long as I can remember. Hawaii has recently been added to that list too. I'll make it there one of these days. Who's up for a bloggy trip???


  1. We want to go to Hawaii too, my husband gets lots of frequent flier miles and hotel points so we are saving for it. It's a lot of points though!!
    I love you blog design, it is adorable :)


  2. Hi there, I found you via the linky :)

    I'm so sorry to read about your husband's grandma passing away. Traveling is never fun when it involves something so sad. Prayers for you all.

    Ireland is on my bucket list for sure. My cousin has been very fortunate to go there multiple times and I practically drool over the pictures. So pretty.

  3. Your place value unit looks amazing! Been praying for your family! Hang in there!

  5. Hi Marci,

    What an adorable blog! I too need to finish my Place-value unit. My school just adopted Singapore Math and the place-value unit has been taking my grade-level team what feels like a century to finish it. Good luck and hopefully we finish soon!

  6. I am so glad that you got to spend so much time with family, but I'm truly sorry about Jared's grandma. :( I hope that you have a great week with your kiddos this week! I'm sure that your sub did great, and the kids will be so excited to have you tomorrow!! Good luck my friend!
