I hope everyone is having a great summer-- how is it already July?!? Here's what I've been up to...

1. Teaching a little boy with Down's Syndrome. He's 5-- so adorable!

4. Beginning to prepare for next year's schoolyear. Ach, I still have lots to do!

5. Moving from Big City to the country for the the countryside, cows and all!

6. Getting ready for my friend Jess' arrival on the 4th. We haven't seen each other in 2 years...!

7. Paying WAY too much for gas- almost $400 for the month of June. Ugh.

8. Finishing up my co-teacher's photo book, which turned out to be adorable

9. Finishing up the school year

10. Going speed dating...yep. It was fun!

11. Going on a date with a guy from the speed first date ever...eek!!

New Favorites...

My new faves for the first day of July (how did that happen?!?)

Song: "Come On Get Higher" by Matt Nathanson

Blog: Little Bites of Heaven- a blog about a family with baby triplets and a 12 year old daughter. Lydia, the oldesr, did a guest post and it's wonderful!

Author: Erynn Mangum- her latest book just came out and I devoured it in less than a day. It drew me in and made me laugh out loud-- so rare for a book! And, Erynn is the same age as me...a published author. Sometimes I feel so unaccomplished...
