The Science School Yard: Currently...September!

Sunday, August 31, 2014


It is my birthday month people...I have 16 days and then...45. That sounds SO old. I love the Currently September three trips section of Farley's Oh' Boy 4th Grade! I always think about how lucky we were as a family to have traveled with our 4 kids. We went to the Alamo, Houston, Disney 3 times, Hershey, Gettysburg, Williamsburg, South Dakota, down to Kentucky, and even Sanibel to just sit on the beach. Yes, we drove for most of them, we had 3 free tickets to Ft. Myers so we could drive to Sanibel, and we even had 6 vouchers to fly to Houston. We know how to work a deal, but now that times are a bit is hard to help our kiddos as they are in and almost in college. Often times, we as parents, put our kids first...that is why my three trips have to deal with trips I wish I could take with my hubby. Italy, Hawaii, and for me...VEGAS! I look at all of the fun that is happening each year in Las Vegas, and as a blogger I want to be part of the amazingness! I have to go...I NEED to go. I WILL go next year!  REALLY! I continue to grow as a creator of units thanks to those of you amazing bloggers that have shared what you have learned...thank you!

Currently, I am preparing for another rain storm...covered the boat, secured the bean bag toss game...and covered with a blanket as I pretend to watch a boy movie with my boys. Happy Labor Day! May your September be full of student learning and success stories!


  1. You are definitely lucky to have traveled to so many great places! I'm 34 and I still call my mom for help on a recipe here and there from my childhood. :-) She acts annoyed but I know secretly she loves it. LOL. Good luck on Tuesday!

  2. I never am annoyed, I thinks it's so cute that she is learning to cook. I hid 7 zucchini in her car as she moved into her first house her sophomore year in college. I love we wanted to take our kids to learn about our country. It was so important...I never went anywhere as a child and I wanted my kids to have that memory with us. Now, I am lucky if I can go upnorth for a weekend. Ha.

  3. I found you through currently. Love Italy and Hawaii great choices for trips!! Vegas looks like fun as well. I'm working on planning for the week as well.

  4. Oooohhhh Variables! That is what I tackled at the beginning of this year. We are experimenting with changing variables in designing helicopters, airplanes, and rockets. It has been a lot of fun and I sure hope the information about variables and controls sticks with them! I love, love when my daughter calls me asking for help- she is teaching first grade for her very first class and it is just so fun to talk about her kids! Have a great week!
    Teachers Are Terrific!

  5. I love your currently about finding extra money. I have decided to start looking at my masters degree to get extra money and I have a part time job already. (Get Fueled formerly k12 and I love it) Good luck on finding "extra" money.
