August already?

I can not believe it is August already! Summer is just flying by. I am hoping to get out to my room next week and get it all put together.  Is it sad that I am only planning on going 1 day, and just get what I can done? I'm not going to be all anal this year like I normally am...well at least I hope not! I've got babies to take care of!

Anywho, I am linking up with Farley for August Currently...

1. Listening- I just put my youngest daughter to bed, and hubs and oldest have been asleep for a it's just me and the dog.  She only comes out when the babes are sad.  She's a toy poodle, so she gets scared easily, yet also thinks she's a pit bull at times? 

2. Loving- new babe is sleeping fantastic! Every night she goes between 5-6 hours so that equals a pretty happy rested mama! I hope I'm not jinxing it!

3. Thinking- I need to sleep...sleep when baby sleeps right? But I keep finding all of these great ideas for my classroom and feel like I should be working on them!

4. Wanting- I ordered some border, notebook paper charts, awesome letters, and a few other things for my classroom.  As soon as it arrives, I will go start working in my room.  School is 35 minutes away, so I only want to go once if I can help it.  

5. Needing- lose baby weight...I thought nursing helped you to lose weight? I know it's only been a month, but I'm not expecting it all to come off at once.  It would be nice if the scale moved down a lb or two though! Any suggestions, please send my way.

6. First day- Technically, August 18 is my first day back.  But I am taking another month of FMLA to stay home with baby.  I just can't see going back to work when she is only 6 weeks old.  Family must come first. I may go the 18th for the Welcome Back meeting though...just so I'm not out of the loop when I do go back.  Kiddos start August 25. 

Well that's it! Be sure to link up with Farley!


  1. Oh my, a new baby! I just spent the day with my baby girl, helping her set up her very first classroom! She is now 26! The time passed so quickly, Enjoy your little one!
    Teachers Are Terrific!

  2. Sara,
    What did you order for your classroom? I'd love to see!! Bravo for 5-6 hours of sleep! I remember those days (My son is 2 1/2)! I hope you enjoy your maternity leave, and best of luck when you return to school--I'm sure the kids will miss you dearly! It's Elementary, My Dear!

  3. Yay! I remember how excited I was when my baby started sleeping 6 hour stretches... I felt like a new woman! Now she is 4 months old and has been sleeping for 10-12 hour stretches since she was two months old! I'm a pretty lucky momma! Good for you for taking an extra month to spend with her! You will definitely not regret that extra time with her! :) Have a great weekend!
