So this is my first official week of summer break and my kids are still in school for another week.  Relaxing, right?? Yea... NO! I'm seriously exhausted! "What have I been doing?" you ask. Well... here is a sneak peak of my life right now.

I'm going to cheat a little bit and post my Five For Friday with Doodlebugs here. I know that this post was written on Wed, but hey.... I gotta do what I can to stay on top of things at this moment. :)

1. I'm waking up at 5am Mon-Fri to do boot camp with my friend.  FIVE AM!!!  I seriously don't even wake up that early for work and it's summertime... the time that I'm SUPPOSE to be sleeping in. Darn you love handles!!! Curse you swimsuit season!!!! It's because of you that I'm doing this! I wanted to take a picture of me at boot camp, but the scary instructor might have made me do like 50 more lunges if I had stopped. Today I had to run around a building complex with ropes over each shoulder dragging weights …

School is...... OVAAAAH!! Welcome Summer!!!! Five for Friday AND My Birthday TPT SALE!!!!

Hello Friends.

Yes, you read it right! I am officially on summer break as of today!! WOOOHOOOO!!!! Things have been so busy over here that I haven't even gotten a chance to post all the fun that we've been having in class. Yesterday was the last day for students and I was starting to get a bit emotional. I had a great group of kids this year... with a few difficult ones sprinkled in between, but they grew on me. I usually line them up before we walk out the door on the last day and give them my little speech of how proud I am of them and how much they've grown, etc. I ended it with, "When you walk out these doors, you will no longer beeeee...... (dah dah daahhhhh) a 2nd grader anymore!" Then I proceeded to walk them out, me all emotional inside. I was expecting to see them all emotional, too but when we walked out and I turned around, my boys were like in their own little world, just playing around CRAZILY in line and not even caring about the amazing award winn…

Five for Friday

Hello Friends!
Well, we are winding down over here and next week is my LAST WEEK of school! Only 2 days left and I am officially on summer break!! Woohoo! If you are not there yet, I know that y'all are getting pretty close yourself.  It was Friday and so it's time to Link up with Doodlebugs for her Five for Friday Party. Again, I know it's Saturday... but remember...I'm fashionably late. :)

1. I did not go into my classroom this whole week! I job share and only work Mon-Wed so I was at a Thinking Maps training for those 3 days. It was seriously mentally exhausting but I LOVED it and can't wait to come back and help train my school site on it.

2. My daughter had herpangina. Yup.. that's sounds pretty disgusting, I know.. but it's really not as bad or gross as it sounds. It's like hand, foot, and mouth disease without the hand and foot. Poor girl had sores all in  her throat. She's feeling better now, which is a good thing since I thought we would ha…
