Things that Happened in August

  • I returned home from summer camp! It was a fun time but I am glad to be home.
  • I survived the days of smoke so thick I could not see more than a block ahead of me. When I went to drive into town, my vehicle put the auto-lights on because it thought it was night. It has never been this bad that I recall. Yay for the forest fires of Washington, Idaho, Montana, and Canada.
  • I started school again. Back in the classroom with fifth and sixth grade students.
  • Speaking of being back in the classroom, I’m going to leave you with one very short sentence: I hate lice! (Thankfully I do not have any.)

Back to School and a Giveaway

Posted August 26, 2015 in Life, Reading / 12 Comments


Tomorrow is the first day of school for students in my school district. It is the first day that students will be in the building. It is crazy to think that it is already the end of August! The summer went by so fast, especially with camp being part of my summer. To commemorate this wonderful going back to school, or at least to make it slightly better if you typically don’t like it, I have decided to host a giveaway.

Summer Plans 2015

Posted June 24, 2015 in Life / 4 Comments

If you are a frequent visitor you may have noticed that the blog has been a bit sparse lately. I have to say that this will continue for the rest of the summer as well. Since it is summer, I have a crazy amount of things to do. I went on a trip to visit family in Wisconsin and now I’m off to summer camp as a counsellor. The summer camp I am going to has very limited cell service. By very limited I mean one bar of 1x service. No 3G. No 4G LTE. It is barely enough service for a text and not near enough for a call. There is also no wifi. This means that all of the posts until the middle of August are scheduled posts. I will tell you more about the camp when I get back in August. I hope you all have a wonderful summer!

Only One Week Left! {SQT}

Posted May 29, 2015 in Life / 0 Comments

Seven Quick Takes

Seven Quick Takes is a weekly link-up hosted by This Ain’t The Lyceum.


Only four more days left in the school year! I highly doubt much will happen next week learning-wise. We have class picnics, awards ceremonies, and an early out the last day. Not to mention that grades have to be entered by the end of the day on Monday so the rest of the week really doesn’t count. Hopefully it will be an easy week.


I am getting sick of the rain. Sure, I know we need it, bad. Still, I just wait it would hold off until I was home before it begins pouring. At least it will be nice and green out for a bit.


For Memorial Weekend I had the house to myself. Well, it was the cat and I. It was a nice weekend to read and clean in relative silence. I needed that.
