1/2 Way Through July and MORE!!!

It is July 16th-yes I know you did not want to be reminded- but I can scarcely believe that we are 1/2 way through July and the summer!  The stores are starting to put out Back to School displays, racks of top line and fashion fit clothes are being rolled into the store aisles, and school supplies are overfilling the bins!  Today I was going to plung into my classroom library area and reorganize my chapter books and Guided Reading materials, but it is supposed to be 99 degrees here, so that means my classroom will top that by at least 5 degrees!  Can teachers melt???   Does your school have air conditioning?  Ours does not...perhaps this summer's higher than normal temps will change that! 
On another note, I AM SO BLESSED TO HAVE SO MANY NEW FOLLOWERS!  I hope my followers count continues to grow!  I hope to hit 50 before the 1st day of school-crossing my fingers and toes on that!!! :>)   Soon, I hope to start a TPT account!  If you have a TPT account, what do you recommend for prospective account members?

On yet another note, I registered for my Trucker Buddy!  I am so eager to hear who my 2nd Graders will be buddies with!  I hope we will be able to meet him or her!  They seem to be getting many registrations forms this summer so they said it might take awhile to hear back from them!  In the meantime, I am picturing in my head where I might put the notes, postcards, and letters we get back from him/her.  Have you ever had a Trucker Buddy?

Hi, I just found your blog and am now following. I have never heard of Trucker Buddies, but I am going to check on that one. I just started blogging and putting items in TPT and Teachers' Notebook a month ago. I like using both sites. You have to pay a one time fee at TN, but I think you get more profit. I like TPT because I think it is quick and easy to add items to your store. On TN, I sometimes I have to try a couple of times to get a new product to upload.
I would love for you to visit my blog (and enter my first giveaway).

I recently joined TpT as a seller. So far, I am loving it. I recommend making things that you need and use in your classroom. You won't waste your time this way. Also, you can post pictures to show how you are using it. I think that's a big selling point! Good luck! I hope it goes well for you! :) Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog, too.
