I know…I am a little late…but better late than never!

Currently June

So, so , SO excited that summer is finally here! I am even more excited that I am going to get to go meet some of my amazing blogging buddies in VEGAS! No, I don’t teach K, but I am still going for a good time! :) Then, my hubby and I will be going on a cruise for our 2 year anniversary! Everything else in between will be time spent in crafting, being lazy, the pool…you know…the good stuff!

Also on my list of “to-do” this summer…I must find a new name for this blog of mine! 2nd Grade Shenanigans really isn’t going to be so fitting anymore {sad day!}. I am trying to keep my ties to Shenanigans…but I can’t. think. of. ANYTHING! $100 to the person who comes up with the best name! Ok…not really…but if you have any ideas that can help a sista out…lemme know! :)

And finally, I posted a freebie from my Going for the Gold unit. Click on the picture below to check it out!

Snack Mix I

I am off to the gym. Love that I can do that whenever I want! Oh….HAPPY SUMMER!!!!


  1. How about 3rd Grade's a Charm.....kind of like 3rd time's a charm. I think Third Grade Shenanigans would be appropriate if you want to keep the Shenanigans part. I'm sure you will think of something:)

  2. I love your blog--so cute! Enjoy the gym and all the other great things you can do during summer!

  3. When is the Vegas blogger meet up?

  4. I totally agree with the love of not having to wear make-up! Or straighten my hair. or dress up! Hooray for pajama time! :)

    I am sad that you are moving to third next year because I love all of your second grade ideas! Good luck coming up with your blog name. I just started my own blog this weekend and naming it was the hardest part!

  5. Hooray, I'll love to see your ideas for 3rd grade.

  7. I love your comment about not wearing makeup! On the days that I do have to put makeup on in the summer it seems like such a chore! :)

  10. first thanks for linking up... love ya
    and second your name change... I kinda wish I would have done some kind of generic name like Oh boy farley or oh boy teaching when I changed grade levels :) and I get nervous that I might get moved again and then what... OH well... you do what feels right to you!!! I like 3rd grade shenanigans!!!

  11. Welll Hello Mrs. King! What about a Trio of Shenanigans?? It would work for third and your third year with your kids! ps I am DEAD set on moving back to the palmetto state. Now I just have to make it happen :)

    Lots of love!
    The "other" Mrs. King

  12. Hi Hope! You have helped me more than ever in my second year of second grade. I was thinking fairly simply for your new blog name...."More Shenanigans in Third." With your creative mind, I'm sure you will come up with something by the time you return from Las Vegas! Enjoy.
