Exciting News & June Currently

I have some exciting news to share with y'all.....
 
I accepted a job today! I had an interview last week and I left feeling like the interview went really well. I got a call that night from the principal that she was very interested in hiring me and that she would call me this week with official news. 
 
As of next year, I will be teaching 5th grade ELA!  I have really prayed that God would put me where he wants me - even if that was at home for another year. It seemed that things just fell into place. Part of me hoped I could move down to younger elementary, but it didn't work out that way and that's okay. I am really looking forward to working at this school next year!
I am also going to join in on Farley's Currently series - even though I am a few days behind! 
 
Listening: SILENCE and it is wonderful! It's time for bed!
 
Loving: New job offer! :)
 
Thinking: There's so much going on in my head! I am volunteering this week for VBS at my church - we have approximately 400 children and I am working with a K-1 group of 14 kiddos. I am thankful for great youth helpers. I am also thinking about my new position...What does the school look like? (I've only seen the front office & principal's office) What does my new classroom look like? Do I have a lot of storage? How do things work in 5th grade with the rotation of classes?
 
Wanting: I got a new laptop for Mother's Day and I do love it, but it drives me BATTY with how touchy it is!
 
Needing: MUST get back on track with Weight Watchers!
 
Summer Bucket List:
1. Enjoy little moments - I really want to soak up every moment with my son and enjoy doing fun things together. Fun things like water gun fights, playing outside, blowing bubbles, day trips to the aquarium, building sandcastles at the beach, etc.
 
2. Beach trips - I am so very excited to go to the beach this summer! It is my happy place!
 
3. House projects - Having just recently moved into a new house, we have lots of house projects/organization going on so I am hoping to knock out a lot this summer!
 
Happy June, y'all!
