June Currently!

I am so excited that it's June!! June means summer, and more importantly, my birthday! 
A new month brings a new currently with Farley. I am all for a good linky party!

Listening- I have a love/hate relationship with Criminal Minds. I can't help but watch it, but it scares me so much! Even during the middle of the day, it's scaring me! I'm such a baby.

Loving- I am loving summer right now! No set schedule, sleeping in, eating at normal times instead of breaks. So nice. Of course, I say that now. I give it 2 more weeks, then I'll be ready to go back to school!

Thinking- I have one student that I am tutoring this summer to help her with reading. Nothing we tried this year really "clicked" with her. She did make some progress, but it was so slow. I have some new ideas to try out with her, so I hope one works! Any suggestions on things that have worked for you?

Wanting- I feel like Oklahoma is having continuous tornadoes! I am so tired of it. Luckily, none of them have actually hit where I live, but there is always the fear that it will. Did anyone else watch the Discovery Channel special on the tornado that hit Moore?! My goodness. Cried my eyes out. Watching about those schools being hit terrifies me.

Needing- Ok. So I finally jumped on the bandwagon (I'm probably the last person on earth) and got an Instagram. The thing that finally caused me to cave--Puppies for All. If you don't follow them, you HAVE to. If I didn't have an unhealthy need for a puppy before, I do now. So cute, it hurts!

3 Vacay essentials- My Nook loaded with easy, summer reads. Sunscreen--always. I burn standing outside for about 1 minute. In the shade. I am that person that buys SPF 100. And of course, good company! Writing this, I am having memories of my mom and sister visiting me when I studied abroad in Prague! We had the best time!

Aren't they precious?! So fun!


  1. Lucky you to be on summer break! ;) This is my last week and I cannot wait...the pool is calling my name!

  3. I have my nook filled too (and tons of books on my shelf) and they are all mindless "chick lit" books. It is my favorite thing to read- no thought required. Perfect for teachers who need some mindless time. :) Enjoy your summer break!

  4. Hi Ms. Cranfill! I am visiting from Farley's currently party :) Happy birthday-month to you. I totally understand what you mean about wanting a puppy. My fiance and I got one in February and I already want another one (they are addictive haha). Glad I found your blog :)

    I am doing a challenge right now on my blog where I am trying to reach 300 followers by my 300th post and I am only 10 away! I'd love for you to visit my blog and follow if you like it.

    Best wishes with everything!
