Hi everyone!  I'm linking up today with Megan over at Oh Boy Fourth Grade to share my currently for May.  

Yeah - it's pretty much self explanatory...  My birthday is on May 8th and hubby took the boys out to find the perfect gift.  He's shopping blind though, since even I haven't been able to give him a list of what I really want.  It doesn't really feel like my birthday, at least not yet.  Next week, I'll bring in a treat to share with my class - usually doughnuts, and we make it a breakfast party.  It's also teacher appreciation you know... so it's a fun week all around. 

I'm loving that testing is finally over.  This was my second year of being a testing coordinator (there are 4 of us at my school), so I have had the honor of helping to count 800 answer documents and 1,200 testing booklets many many times over the past 3 days.  The past 3 weeks I have been busy almost everyday after school checking the books back into our "secure location".  Oh the joy!  I would do a little dance if I wasn't so brain fried.  I can just start to imagine what my classroom will look like when I actually have time to work in it after school.  :)  

Open House is next week - one week from today - and the minute I think I'm okay with projects and walls, then I start to rethink everything.  Like the Braille names that my students made yesterday - I have put them up in 2 different locations, and I don't like them there.... thinking that they might just end up on their desks...

Dinner - who needs dinner?  I'm too tired to cook - but I guess we can't go out again this week...  After the 2 hour counting fiesta on Tuesday I talked my hubby into it, then last night after another 2 hour counting hubby made dinner... and tonight - well could we have cereal?  That's nutritious, right?  All those vitamins?

I need to go shopping - but that would require actually having a moment to go...

As for my bucket list - yes, in a month I will be heading to Alaska with my husband's side of the family.  I'm so looking forward to it, though I'm not looking forward to having to bring a bunch of diapers with my littlest one.  He just doesn't have it down pat yet...

 Hope you had a great day!
