What happened to June and July? You didn't ask for it, but here it is--my summer in pictures:
|JUNE ~ We kicked off summer with a marshmallow roast in the backyard!|
|I listened to the sounds of summer in June. A LOT. This noisy bug evidently loves Texas and was out in force. Multiply him by like a gazillion and you have so much noise you can't hear yourself think!|
|I met (and melted) with a Squirrel at the Central Texas Blogger Meet-Up!|
|Went to Mexico with the family, but left early due to a family situation back home. Definitely the low-point of my summer.|
|More melting! Fun in the sun at Six Flags Fiesta Texas with Reagan.|
|I played a lot of Words With Friends and even got a word worth 143 points! Can you say "word nerd"? How sad is it that this was a highlight of my summer?!|
|Umm, speaking of words, I learned some new ones. I found time to do a little summer reading (and blushed 50 shades of RED)!!! I'm pretty sure if I had an "inner goddess", she'd be blushing, too.|
|I finally got a new car! Well, new to me, anyway--it's a 2010 Acura MDX. Here I am trying to be patient while filling out all the paperwork.|
|And here it is in my driveway--ain't she purty?!!|
Did you notice that there was no mention of school? That's crazy because I have a ton of stuff to prepare for this year and I haven't really worried about it, at least not until I got this text from an over-achieving friend yesterday:
This is a great book and perfect for primary-aged kids just beginning to write! Even if you don't get the unit, consider buying this newly-released book--you won't regret it!
If you are interested in fun activities to go with the book, click here to go to my TpT store. For some reason, there are glitches with downloading the preview file from TpT that haven't been resolved yet, so I've included the preview here:
Are you wondering about all the owl stuff in a unit called Puppy Palooza 2? Rocket's new friend in the book is a shy owl, so there you go...
And here I go--off to soak up the summer sun and NOT think about school!
