July Already and Some Freebies

Aloha everyone! Can you believe it is July already!!  The weather is definitely getting warmer and my backyard looks like a jungle!!  We have a few fruit trees back there and they are fully loaded with goodies!


The avocado tree is just brimming and the papaya is almost ready too.  You can't tell from this pick but the avocado tree is giant. This is only one branch! We also have a coconut palm out there with so many coconuts I think I may just open up a roadside stand:) Summer is great for taking all of your fruits and sharing with neighbors.  The man around the corner has a huge mango tree and we always swap buckets of fruit.

This week is the 4th of July already and we will probably head to town for a big Firework show down in Waikiki.

I've been working on some fun things all summer and I realized I have not done any of my classroom items that I really should.  I have tons of centers to copy and laminate, I need to start designing my planning and grade book and I need to revamp some of my reading curriculum!!

The problem is I get on the computer and start reading other's blogs and suddenly 2 hours has gone by....I vow to get busy this week;)

I am at 255 followers right now and my FB fans have doubled in the last few weeks. So I am planning a fun Summer Giveaway which I will post tomorrow! So please make sure you come on by:)

I am updating and also linking with Farley for her July Currently. She has a great post today and I am totally jealous of her new washing machine and the fact that she may be getting a new jeep!!



So my mother-in-law really wants to have my 10 year old come and stay with her, but I think she is too young to fly to California all by herself!!  Anywho after a month of saying no, no, no, I have decided to let her go.  Grandma isn't getting any younger and I hate to be the naysayer all the time...but I still hate to see her traveling alone.  I just can't afford to go with her this summer:( What do you think?  I have some issues with my Mother-In-Law...

I will leave you with some digital papers that you could use for the upcoming holiday or other holidays.  I also posted my I Pick poster in my TpT store if you want to grab that as well.

    1. We were there too! But we didn't stay the whole night it was a little wild for my daughters;) We like to go down and eat at Gordon Bierch right there on the water, so pretty:) My daughter always says "Can we got to eat at Golden Beer?"

  6. Corinna, I'm just like you - but instead of planning, I have TONS of homework to do. I get on and tell myself, "Only 30 minutes, Sara!" but that 30 minutes definitely (and easily) turns into 2 hours!

    I also wanted to stop by and let you know that I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger award! Stop on by my blog to pick it up and give your own 7 facts :]

  7. I love your cute background paper!! I'm glad you are enjoying your summer & not worrying so much about school. That's what summer is all about! I'm the same way. I get lost in blogs for 2 hours at a time. It definitely makes the day go by fast!

  10. Those papers are fabulous! Great for the 4th, but some would work for Christmas and Dr. Seuss' birthday, too! Thanks.

  11. Oh goodness. I don't know if I would ever be able to let my child fly alone. I can't even get myself on a plane. Prayers to you to for your "sanity" when she does go. I would be saying the same thing about Grandma coming to you.

  12. I get it with the child traveling alone...I'm still wondering if I can leave my 11-year-old son by himself at home!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh, gosh! I would be freaking. My son didn't fly alone for the first time until he was 15. They do grow up so fast! Sending up prayers for him and you! Thanks for the great papers!

  15. An avocado tree is so exotic :). I am finally done !!!! Today is Canada Day, just got home from a great pool party, LOVE summer and holidays. I hear you about your daughter and the plane .....I am in a bit of denial that my baby will be off to University in 8 weeks.....we want our girls to be independent and spread their wings but still hard to let go.

  17. I'd have a difficult time letting my little one travel, too.
    But, I'm sure she'll be just fine.

  18. Oooh, your papers are pretty.
    I wish we had mango trees!
    Not sure about the 10 year old travelling, we never had to deal with it. But I DO know that the kids are very well looked after on the planes :)

  21. I say let her go! My oldest started going to see her Grandparents in California after second grade. I put her on a direct flight to LA and they drove down from San Luis Obispo and picked her up. Couldn't be safer-- I put her on the plane they take her off the plane. Eventually, if I remember correctly at 11 or 12 she started changing planes and flying directly to San Luis. At 14 she refused to be labeled as a minor flying alone and did the whole thing on her own. Now she's nearly 20 and goes everywhere without any troubles. Good Luck!
