Currently June!

I'm so excited as this is my first Currently!  I love reading others', but I have been too intimidated to post my own.  I'm new to this blogging world.  So, here goes...if I do it incorrectly, please forgive me!

Woo hoo!!!!  I did it!  I'm so impressed with to get it linked up.  Oh my.  So much to learn...

Listening to "The Today Show" as I do every morning.  I gave up on the newspaper.  I never read it and decided to save some trees.  I get what news I need in my quick viewing of the show.  Then I can further look into those news items that interest me and dump all the bad that we see...truly disturbing place for our country currently.

I could go on...and on...and on about my new Erin Condren planner!  It is my first, and I have feverishly been adding my calendar items with my cute pen, which is cleverly affixed to the side!  How could a girl not be organized with such fabulousness (new word)??  For sure!

This guy....
is graduating from high school as an honor graduate on June 14th!  He will be heading off to Old Dominion University next year to study Economics and Marketing.  To say that I am proud of him is an understatement.  He is an amazing young man with a heart of gold.  

We sat in the 90 degree heat to watch my youngest play two baseball games to advance in the pony tournament.  They play in the semi-finals today, and if they win, play for the championship on Tuesday evening.  They are an amazing group of boys, and I will be sad to take my baseball chair out of my car for the season...hopefully not today!  Alex has helped coach his younger brother this that!

To say that I am done (as in "stick a fork in her...she's done") with the current school year is an understatement!  I am so ready for my new adventure in fourth grade.  Once I hand the keys over to my office, I will immerse myself in all things fourth grade...and, I can't wait!!!

And, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to travel!  While I live at the beach, the Bay is less than five minutes from my house...oceanfront is a quick 15, I love to go away to a different beach for vacation.  After graduation, we are packing the car to head to Duck, NC on the Outer Banks...we went last year and had a blast.  This year we rented a bigger house even closer to the ocean...with a pool...and a hot tub...cannot wait!!!!

Well, that's it.  My little corner of the world.  I am blessed, and this Currently has made me focus on that fact, so thanks to get this linked up...fingers crossed!

Happy summer, y'all!

I just bought my first Erin Condren too....pricey but man, oh man, once I saw that video and wiped the drool off my keyboard, I dug into my savings and bought myself one too. I usually do mine on the computer but I am in love with the idea of being able to keep so much in the planner without losing pages!

My oldest just graduated too (on Thursday)! She is off to West Virginia this fall to study creative writing. Considering that is 9 hours from here, this mama may have a little trouble "letting go" come August!

Congrats on your first Currently!! I am so jealous of all the EC planners I have been seeing. I bought a planner today at Walmart just so I would have something new for the summer. Congrats to your boys! Have a great vacation in NC.
