I just realized it's the last week of August. I'm sorry what? It feels like yesterday I was typing out how excited I was for Europe and school and now it's almost September!? Before you know it I'll be putting up my Christmas tree and saying goodbye to my students for winter break!
For now though I thought I'd give you a tiny update on a few things. SO here is what I am.....
Feeling...surprised and relieved. I'm surprised because I have had such a successful first 3 days. We had our first real history based lesson today and I was shocked because most of my students were actually participating in the lesson. It was like pulling teeth getting my students to participate last year! I'm feeling relieved because the first week of school is almost over!
Reading...All the Light We Cannot See. I started the book while in Europe but haven't had a single moment free to read nor have I felt like picking up a book and reading at all. Which is strange for me because I can usually read anytime, anywhere.
Drinking...Dr. Pepper. Even thought I should be drinking water. I set a goal for myself to drink more water and I have failed miserably. Any tips y'all have to help with drinking more water would be much appreciated!
Watching...the latest episode of Real Housewives of Orange County, for the second time. There really isn't anything else on. But I am SOOOO excited for all my fall shows to come back in a few weeks!
Wearing...School volleyball shirt and yoga pants. Said yoga pants have a nice big hole in the front now so they can no longer be worn out of the house. But they are my most comfortable ones and so I still wear them out of the house.
Working on...Lessons for next week. We're going to be over our first two settlements, Jamestown and Plymouth. Another of my goals this school year is to be prepared with all my lessons at least a week in advance. I don't want to be pulling together lessons the day of...wait what? Sorry I mean the day before, because you know, teachers never do that.
Excited about...Ladies of London coming back to Bravo!! Woo hoo! I absolutely LOVED the first season and cannot wait to see what my favorite American turned Brit Bravo-leberities have been up too.
Loving...these shoes, this sweater, and this quote....
What a nice thought! :)
Have a great Thursday!
