Currently: August 2015

I can't believe it's August. I am sad at how summer seemed to fly by this year--I've been enjoying this summer so much. At the same time, I think I'm ready for a change. I'm ready to welcome fall. 

I'm linking up with Jenna and Ann again this month to share some of the things we're doing around here.


Creating
I'm taking a class right now for early numeracy--I'm learning about how young kids develop a sense of number, place value, and so much more. It's been interesting so far. I'm working on my assignment for that. I'm creating an assessment for a specific grade band to help evaluate a child's sense of number and identify weaknesses and plans of action. (Would anyone be interested on a blog about some things you can do with children to help develop a number sense?) In my class today, we learned that part of the reason it's so hard to teach number to kids is that unlike reading, which is a skill, math and number is a concept--at least in the beginning stages. 

Wishlisting
Last month I told you that we were making some big decisions--there will be more on that later. One of those was that we had decided upon selling our house and moving closer to where Zach works. I will share more on the reasons why at another time. We met with a realtor and just felt like a move is definitely on the horizon but now is not the time. We're hoping in the spring, but still not sure. In order to put some positive vibes out there and show some faith-I've been putting a wishlist together of some of the things I'd like if we chose to invest in a home in another 6-8 months. If it doesn't happen then, it will happen someday. I'm not really in a rush of any kind--I love our home! But I still definitely don't think it hurts to start thinking about what I'd want in a new home. 

Hoping
One of the reasons we are putting off a move (there are several) is that there's an awesome work (from home) opportunity for me on the horizon. It's like 95% a done deal--I'm really just waiting on a few formalities but I'll definitely share that when the time comes because it is such an incredible blessing and I'm inspired by the way it came together--I'd love to share it with you. 

Eating
Right now nothing consistent except for, of course, zuchinni. We are starting a 2nd Whole30 today actually. For more on that see Friday's post. 

Watching

Lately we've been watching MasterChef and loving it. It's been really fun to find a new show to watch with Zach and for it to be a reality TV show--which is new for us. More on watching TV with my husband.

What are you currently doing?
