August Currently

August!! Can you believe it, it all happened so fast, but I made it through the first week of school and I am thoroughly exhausted!! But I have a quick minute before I pass out on the couch to link up with Farley over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade!




So you all know Hawaii is back to school and it has a been a hot one this week.  My kiddos and I were wiped out by the end of each day, from the heat!!  I have to say though  it's been lots of fun!

I have a the sweetest group of kids and we did lots of fun activities.  I can't wait to share all of the fun, but I truly do need a nap and a cocktail, not sure which one first!!

This weekend I plan to finish my Back To School shopping.  I have been contemplating a new printer, and the one that the school gave me has officially died. So I need to go out and find something that will last and not be too expensive on ink. If you love your printer and have had it awhile I would love to know what it is!!

I am also in desperate need of a pedicure. I meant to do it before school started and just never had the time.  I usually kick off my shoes or wear slippers in class so my toes are always exposed!! Do you know how many times they were touched by little fingers this week while I was reading a story?? I just feel if they are going to touch them, then maybe they should be prettier, lol!

If you were back at school this week I hope it was a good one! If you are headed that way, enjoy your next few days!! Okay the couch is really calling my name:)

  6. LOL! My kids love to "massage" my feet/toes, too! They never did that when I taught 3rd, only when I moved to 2nd! So funny. And makes me sleepy! My class this past year got into playing with my hair during read alouds. I finally had to stop it b/c they would all be fighting over who got to stand behind the rocking chair and "fix Mrs. Cockrell's hair!"

  7. Hi Corinna, you may want to get a laser printer...it's lasts longer than the inkjet ones.

  8. Love that about making your toes pretty. It's so funny what kids notice! My niece whose 2 loves looking at my toes and the colors. I've had kids paint their toes to match mine. So cute! Congrats on surviving the first week! Hope you enjoyed a fruity beverage!

  11. I have so many toe touchers this year that I was glad I got a pedi before school started. Too funny! Don't get an hp if you want to save on ink.

    1. I didn't know that HPs were bad on ink. Sheesh! That explains everything. I just thought all printers were like that. thanks for the heads-up!

    2. No one seems to agree on printers, some people swear by HP and others hate them!! Amazon was no help at all either. I think I am just going for cheap:P

  14. Hey Corrina!
    Congratulations on finishing the first week of school! I was thinking about you this week as we were heading back..wondering I wonder how her kids are and if she's had time to blog?! haha. I was completely exhausted this week! And yes, the heat has been killer..especially since we have morning and afternoon yard duty EVERY DAY for the first week at my school :(
    I have an epson and really like it. It was about 30 bucks on sale at the beginning of last school year at best buy..the ink cartridges cost a little under $20 at wal mart. I like it bc I can easily make copies and scan things from home. Comes in handy!! Have a restful weekend, and a good second week with your kiddos!

  15. I love your comment on the pedicures! My kiddo's love to touch my toe nails during our carpet time! I always thought it was cute and a little odd. Glad to know I am not the only one it happens to! Haha!
