Five for Friday (ummmm....I mean Saturday)

Happy Saturday, Friends!

I posted about some Fabulous Feedback I received yesterday, so I wasn't able to post my Five for Friday on Friday.  So, Saturday it is.  I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs for this week's Five for Friday.


1: I married my high school sweetheart on June 13, 2009.  Thursday was our 4 year anniversary.  Guess what? I forgot!  Yes, friends.  This gal forgot her anniversary.  That's the first time I've ever forgotten a date.  My husband forgot, too.  He came home yesterday and said that he needed to ask me a question.  He asked me to be honest.  Then he said, did you remember that yesterday was our anniversary.  I cried.  I can't believe I forgot! 

2: If you follow my blog, then you know that I am a HUGE Clemson Tiger fan.  Tiger fans learned this week that someone had vandalized Howard's Rock.  For those non-football or non-Clemson fans...Howard's rock is a tradition at Clemson football games.  The rock was brought to Clemson from Death Valley, California in 1919.  In 1966, one of Clemson's most beloved coaches (Frank Howard) told the players to rub the rock for good luck.  They one the game that day.  Ever since then, our football players rub the rock for good luck.  Like I said, it's a tradition. I was HIGHLY upset when I heard that someone had been so disrespectful.  We don't know as of right now who did it or why.  


3: I helped Brayden make Eric his Father's Day gift this week.  My husband loves golf.  I found this on Pinterest, and knew that I had to make it.  Bray's little feet are so cute. 

4.  I find out today whether I will be having a new niece or nephew!!! I can't wait.  Right now, we have 2 boys and 1 girl (on my husband's side of the family).  I'm kinda hoping for a little girl.  

5.  I've been busy, busy, busy making new things for my classroom this week.  Every day during nap time, I've been working on a new packet.  I've gotta do something during nap time, right??? I've really been reflecting on my teaching lately. One thing I knew I need to work on was reading homework.  I needed something more than just, write down a summary.  I'm so excited to use these next year.  I've made one for 1st and 2nd grade as of right now.  


I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL weekend.  

Lots of love,

  5. Great idea for the reading homework. I'll have to think about that. My first wedding anniversary is next week. I sort of forgot to order a present so it can get here in time. On the plus side, at least your husband forgot too! I just found your blog thru the linky. It's cute! I teach 2nd too and am your newest follower.

    1. Awwww! Happy first wedding anniversary. :-) I am glad that my husband forgot. That way neither one of us were upset. This will always be an anniversary to remember. :-)

      Yay for 2nd grade teachers. I'm heading to check out your blog now.
