August (B2s) Currently

Hello people! I'm linking up with Farley today to bring you a B2S August Currently. 

Listening--> Bones (daytime tv is not my fave so I won't miss it) It's a Christmas episode. Whenever I watch a Christmas episode during the non-Christmas season it momentarily puts me into the spirit...even if it's Bones and dead bodies and what not.

Loving-->Last summer Indiana had horribly high temps and now we're having a streak of under 80 temps. Today is the first day in over a week it's topped is cutting into my pool time though.

Thinking-->I've had a lot (a lot a lot a lot) going on in my head right now.

Wanting-->I kinda procrastinated and it just hit me the other day that I go back to school in less than 2 weeks. Oops. I need my stuff unpacked and setup stat!

Needing--> I just need a little carefree time w/ no worries. Unfortunately I don't think adults are granted such a luxury.

B2S must haves-->
1. I have a meet the teacher night the night before school starts so I need to have my stuff to parents printed out and organized.

2. Maybe I'm like a kid going back to school....maybe I'm a girl and like new clothes. Whatever. I just like to have a new outfit or 2 for that first week back. :D 
thinking of this dress with a white cardigan

3. I don't know about the upper grades but in first grade I can't leave a book or worksheet with directions on each desk and have the kiddos come in and get to work. I have to have something that is pretty easy to figure out and engaging. I usually do a coloring sheet because the kids file in at different times and some need more help finding their desk than others and some parents want to chitchat when dropping their kiddos off.  I have other coloring pages I've used but they're at school.

I've also seen teachers leave whiteboards on desks, and playdough to keep the younger kids engaged while the day starts. 

Head on over and link up! (I love this linky)

I know exactly how you feel about watching Christmas episodes! I saw my first Christmas commercial the other day and was like, ohno...too fast! I think that's a cute dress...maybe add a belt with on top of the cardigan?

I also need to get my room set-up! I don't think that the rest of the world understands what teachers do to "get ready!" I am thinking about making those colorful info packets too!

Very jealous of your weather! I was sitting-just sitting on a bench in my front yard today with my puppy and both of us were sweating! :) I like having a new first day outfit too.

I need to be carefree too...I don't think adults get that though! Maybe one day of carefree-ness?? That could work.
