Happy July 1st Dear Friends!

It's been awhile since I linked up with Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade for a Currently.


Here it is:  My July Currently

As my kiddos get older they seem to get along with one another so much better.  This summer I have so enjoyed listening to my kids play together, giggle together, and just have fun being with each other.  My 3 boys enjoy playing Minecraft together.... I can't lie.. I can tell you there were some disagreements ( VOICES RAISED)  when their little brother decided to destroy their homes.  

Although summer is very busy for my family with baseball and other sporting events, it's still so much of a more relaxed pace than the school year.  I LOVE this down time.  No homework to rush to finish, school events to race to after supper, and late night papers to grade.........  

I have a long list of TPT units that I hope to create over the summer that I can use in my classroom this next school year.  BUT  I've finished NOT ONE.   Sigh....

I would LOVE to hire someone to clean my house but it hasn't happened yet.  Someday....  Maybe....  Actually, I don't mind cleaning a house.  There's some satisfaction to things looking all nice and tidy for a few minutes anyway.    ... I have four children.    

For the Fourth of July we have a tradition of having family and friends over to our house.  My husband grills hamburgers and hotdogs.  We have the traditional 4th of July backyard barbecue.   Our house is located on the outskirts of town, so we are able to sit on our back deck and watch the fireworks displays of 3 nearby towns.  Then we have our own fireworks complete with the "snake", "sparklers",  and the "flying parachute" men.    My kids love it!

Don't forget to check out all of my FRIENDS' July Currentlys.

I always need to clean, too! I would love to hire a house cleaner, but I don't think my dog would like it as much lol.

I am with you on a house cleaner! I want one so bad but hubby hasn't agreed to put it in the budget yet. Ugh!

I agree. Summer needs to slow down a bit. Mine just started (we finished school on June 12) and I am already in disbelief that it is July. How'd that happen?
