O.K. It seems like June has disappeared for this year. Where did it vanish to? (HMMM I think I ended that question with a preposition.)

Farley has set up her July linky party. I've never participated but maybe July is the new second half of the year. 

I even went so far as reading the rules. And it is July...And I am finished with teaching as of tomorrow (well for a month anyway!)

It is really hot. Steaming hot. I think it is on a lot of people's minds. When all you hear is talk about the weather it is really a dull day or the weather is top priority--almost like will we have a snow day tomorrow???

It is dry. Grass--brown. Garden--so sad!  Flowers--trying to save.  Newly planted azaleas--I think dying.

So, I will pray for rain!


  1. I love Reading with Meaning! Her schema analogy is wonderful and really helps kids remember it!
