Five for Friday!

The beginning of the school year has really got me trying to figure out how to get everything done!  I have 24 students again this year, but no aide this year.  I know I was spoiled last year, but my class is so diverse this year I am trying to figure out how to meet them all where they are.

This morning I am linking up with Doodle Bug Teaching to bring you my Five for Friday!

Monday school was cancelled!  The rain woke my husband and I up around 3, and it was raining pretty hard all morning!  My son and I were about a block away from school when we got the call that school was cancelled.  We were happy to go home and have a PJ day!!  We spent the day playing puzzles, watching toons, playing Mario, and running around!!  It was a great unexpected day to our weekend!!

I started our first science unit this week.  We are starting with life science.  We spend a lot of time looking at plants, ecosystems, adaptations and fossils.  I spent a lot of time outlining the unit last year, and then this year we bought new curriculum.  I spent part of Sunday going through and re outlining what I was doing.  I was able to spend part of Monday looking at more stuff too, thank you rainy day!! 

Tuesday night when I got home from work I was SOOO tired!  I am guessing it was from staying up late Monday night watching Bachelor in Paradise and then Shark Tank!  Any ways, I was finally able to get my son to bed by 7:45, and I was asleep not too long after!!  I woke up Wednesday night feeling like a million dollars though!  If only I could go to sleep that early every night!

Shark Tank has been the hubby's newest favorite show, so we have watched it every night this week!  It is cool to see the new ideas that people have, but crazy to think how much money these people have to invest!!  We have some new shows set for our DVR too!  We can't wait for Gotham and Red Band Society.

I have a new favorite worship song right now.  We sang it at my parent's church on Sunday when I was there, and a few weeks ago when I was there too.  I was so happy that we had the All Sons and Daughters CD in our car too so I could rock out to it on my drive home from my parent's house on Sunday!


  1. I think unexpected days off are better than planned. I certainly appreciate then more!! It's so crazy how we can get hooked on tees shows. We have been watching house before and after shows like nobody's biz!!

  2. I was born and raised in AZ. I now live in CO. I cannot believe how much rain they got!!! I was looking at all the facebook photos coming in from friends that still live there. It is always nice to have an unexpected day off :)

  3. What a fun way to start your week! PJ days are great. :)
    You're right, that is an amazing worship song! Thanks for sharing.
