Five for Friday ~ July 17

Good evening everyone!!  I hope that you have been enjoying your summer as much as I have!!  It has taken me all week to recover from #tptvegas15 and I still don't think I am!!  I had lunch with the amazing Jennifer, The Blessed Teacher, today to talk about Vegas!  I still can't believe it was only last week that we were all together!!

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

An eventful drive home from #tptvegas15

 We didn't come home from Vegas until Sunday, and what an eventful trip home it was!!  We had to drive over a tire in the road on the way home, and needless to say $200 later our car is fixed.  Luckily we were able to pull over to the side of the road so my husband could remove this plate from under our car!!  Plus, we were safe and fine!  I am very thankful that it wasn't worse.

SNEAK PEEK into my classroom as I set up this summer!

I was very excited to get into my classroom two more days this week!!  I am so happy that things are starting to come together!  I was able to work with my new teaching partner too, so we were able to start moving things around in her room too!  This is just a little sneak peek at what I was working on earlier this week!!

FREE trip to the pet store is great for entertaining toddlers!

On Thursday I had my babies all to myself while my hubby was working in his classroom!!  I was able to take them to run some errands with me.  They LOVE to go to the pet store, so of course we had to go!!  I am very thankful that they haven't asked to bring anything home yet!!

  1. Love your blog! I am also a third grade teacher, so I am looking forward to reading more of your posts. I can relate to taking your children to the pet store. That is where my daughter wants to go every Saturday for pet adoption day. It takes a lot of self control to not come home with a million pets!

    Your newest follower,

  2. Petco! I had forgotten how much fun it is to go to the pet store. Today is humid and kind of icky, so a quick trip to Petco is just what we need. Thanks for all of the songs you share. They're a blessing. I've been in my room a few times, but I haven't done anything even remotely cute. I have some shelves that I might paint. Boring black? Something bright? I can't decide.
    Laughter and Consistency

  3. Congratulations on your 4,000 followers on ig! That's so exciting! I've been loving seeing everyone's pictures and posts from Vegas. I am making it a goal to get there next year! Enjoy these last few days of summer vacation!
