Five For Friday: School's Out!

1.) NYC Schools are finally finished!  This was a long and emotional year for me.  I really adored my kids this year.  There were lots of tears as my graduates were dismissed for the last time. :-(  I know they will be amazing in middle school, but I'm going to miss them so much.  I really enjoyed this year with them.

I forgot to take a last day picture!  And the kids wanted to keep the countdown numbers as mementos, ha!

2.) My kiddo "graduated" from kindergarten!  His school had a cute carnival for the kindergartners to receive their certificates and celebrate their big achievement.
 How is this possible?!

3.) My kids made a list of things they want to do this summer.  Take a look:
Sounds  like a great summer, right?  (We are not going to the Bahamas though...sorry kids.)

4.) We are doing this though (in fifteen days!):

5.)  I am ready for some rest before we head out to Disney.  We hit the park today and I will see my trainer this evening, but beyond that, I'm camping out on the couch and I might take a little nap!

Hope you all are having a great summer so far! Be sure to head over to Doodlebug's Teaching Blog to read more Five for Friday posts!

I don't blog every day, or even every week, but you can check me out on Instagram, my favorite social media!

Currently: June

June, June, June!

"Today is June" - in case you don't read 5 year old :-)

This is the note my kindergartener left on the fridge today.  He and I finish school on June 26th.  It's within reach, friends.  We will make it to the end of June in one piece!

Here is my Currently:

Listening:  Do you have a Roku?  Did you know you can stream YouTube directly to the TV?  My kids are totally obsessed with Kid Snippets.  My husband giggles at it also :-)

Loving:  With the warmer weather (finally!), I favor a nice unsweetened Black Tea Lemonade in the afternoon.  The venti has only 70 calories, if you care about that kind of thing, and is much more reasonable than any of the lattes at Starbucks.

Thinking:   We have 42 days left until we surprise our kids with a Disney trip!  We booked our stay last June, so this has really been a long time coming.

Wanting:  More sleep, like whoa.  5:30 am feels earlier every single day and I've been hitting the snooze button like it's my job.  I know I should go to bed earlier, but....I don't wanna.  It also doesn't help that I've been in the gym 5-6 days a week.  All the exercise is leaving me tired and I'm definitely not getting enough rest.

Needing: New capris.  I have one pair from loft that I like and still fit, but I need some free time to go shopping.  It's funny...if these capris were for my children, I'd have gotten them last week, but because they are for me, I'll probably go the entire summer rotating two pairs of shorts and a pair of capris

Summer Bucket List:  1.) Disney & Universal Studios (SO excited for the new Harry Potter rides!)
2.) Outdoor swimming!!!!!  I'm so ready to get out of the gym pool.
3.) My little gal starts Ballet this week!

Be sure to link up with Farley for this month's currently!

What are you most looking forward to this summer?
