Five for Friday ~ January 23

I am so thankful that it is Friday!  It has been a very long week.  How is it that short weeks are always the longest!?!

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

Have you been following Sarah, over at A Rocky Top Teacher on Facebook!?  She has been posting her Monday Moments now for a few weeks, and this weeks was very INSPIRING!!  I loved it so much I blogged about it on Monday!!  If you haven't watched it yet, go check it out!!

If you don't follow Angie Olson from Lucky Little Learners yet, run, go, you should!!  I LOVE her!  She is so supportive, and seriously one of the sweetest people ever!  She posted this video on Facebook earlier this week, and I loved it!  I had to share it with all of you too in case you hadn't seen it yet!

Our family has needed all of the prayers we could get this week.  My MIL was diagnosed with cancer over Christmas break, and she went in for her hysterectomy on Monday.  I haven't been to the hospital to see her yet, because we don't want to take our kids.  My husband has been to see her, and it is going to be a long battle.  We're thankful for an amazing God who we know will be with us, and especially her throughout this process.  This week I was blessed by my sweetest BFFs who each made extra effort to check in on me, and offer me support!  I love them, and wish they were closer!!

Thursday when we got home from school I had promised my son that we would go on a bike ride.  I have been picking him up from after care before they go outside to play, and it makes him very sad.  He loves playing outside on the playground.  He was a very happy boy though when we went on a bike ride around the neighborhood!

This week the flu has been wiping out our school!  I am thankful that I have been staying away from it, but I have three kids who were in school on Wednesday, and absent Thursday because they now have confirmed cases of the flu!  Please make sure you are taking care of yourself, and staying healthy!

  1. I am so sorry to hear about your MIL. I've been through that with mine and know how scary it can be. I'll be prayer for you and your family during this time. The flu has wiped out our school too. Over half of my class has been out in the past week with it. Hope you have a great weekend.
