Five for Friday!

Hooking up again with Doodlebugs for...

I'm going to keep it short and sweet because this week has been CRRRRRRRRAZY!  I have had baseball or meetings (usually 2!) every night after school.  I can barely catch my breath!  So here goes...
Happy Mother's might not look like much to you all, but this is the project my son's caregivers had him make for me.  The fact that they took the time to have him do this is priceless.  He is such a challenging child to work with...yet they treat him with such love and dignity.  We are so blessed.
My Mother's Day gift to myself.  It arrived yesterday and I am sorta kinda figuring it out.  I'm sure I will be very thin and healthy by the next Five for Friday.  Mmmmhmmmm.

This week we are finishing up our big informational text project--and my students really rose to the occasion.  Yesterday they organized all their work, finished up their google presentations--and next week we present!


My students had a blast playing measurement "trilogy".  It's a game you could make...but I have a few versions in my store if you don't have the time.

If you follow me on FB, you know I love inspirational quotes and post them frequently.  This one really hit home this week.  Hope it "connects" with you as well.
 Have a great weekend everyone...stop back later this week for more!


  1. I got my fitbit for my birthday and I love it! I hope you do too. Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Girl, I love you even more now that you said you'll be very thin and healthy by the next Five for Friday. LOVE it! When I get back to the states, I want to look into getting a FitBit, so you'll have to let me know all about it and how it works.

  3. The quote is priceless and made my day! Seriously, I added that to my next year's plans and I will use it somehow in the decor of my room! I also tried Fit Bit, It was interesting to track my sleep but after about three nights I realized it was always the same. The step counter worked very well. I did take mine back though so I really hope you enjoy yours!

    Thanks for sharing!
