OH MY! It's May already?! How did this happen?! I have no idea, but I am so not complaining! I am linking up with Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade for this month's currently! Here we go:
I am only listening to Nashville but not truly paying attention! I do this all the time. In my head I am a great multi-tasker but seriously, I stink at it! I will need to watch is AGAIN on DVR.

I am LOVING the fact that summer time is right around the corner but at the same time, with summer approaching also means state testing is approaching. This too shall pass!

My least very least favorite chore is folding and ironing laundry. Seriously, it's the worst! I feel like I would rather wash dishes, clean toilets, and scrub baseboards before I would ever fold a pile of clothes. Ugh. IT IS THE WORST!

I am needing to get some grading done tonight. I really try to get assessments back pretty quick to my kids so it still holds it's value, but it is tough. I have 53 kiddos and give personal praise and comments to each of them. It's good stuff, just really time consuming.

My summer bucket list may sound like lots of chicas' bucket lists. Let me explain:
1. The man and I head to the lake quite often through the summer and this one will be no different. It is a mini vacation on the weekends and we really enjoy catching up with each other and our friends. We love getting out on the boat and enjoying the weather.

2. I feel so much better when I work out consistently. I need to get back on track. This has been such an exhausting time of year, but I really need to get back on schedule so I can get some energy! Oh yeah, and that beach bod. DUH!

3. It's been a while since my whole family has gone to the beach together. This year, we are going to rock it out! My parents claim they want to see all of us, but we all know it's just so they can spend an entire week with their grandbabies. Seriously, mom and dad, we are all on to you! Either way, I am pretty excited to go back to the beach we grew up going to on vacation.

Alright, my friends! Now it is your turn to link up! Hop on over to Farley's site, and let us know what you are up to CURRENTLY.


  1. I feel you Lauren about what you're "needing." I have to confess that Monday I came across a PRE-test from several weeks ago. We are now finished with the unit . . . smh. Good luck getting through your own pile! :)

  2. State testing is the worst! It is ridiculous. I love that you give personal praise to every child - especially in 5th grade - they still need that so much. I am with ya on the gym, I just have such a hard time going after work and before work... forget about it!
    Love your blog! I am your newest follower!

  3. We have 16 days left and then I think about all that has to be done and I'm scared..... :)

    I've put running on the back burner because I've been so busy and I can feel it. I've got to get my game back on!

    I tried to subscribe to your blog through email, but it wouldn't let me for some reason??


  4. I know what you mean about it already being May. I kind of didn't realize it was actually May until about mid-morning!

  5. I love Nashville! So ridiciously dramatic that I can't help but be hooked!

  6. It sounds like we are wanting the same thing! If only...

    Best of luck with testing! :)
