Five for Friday is BACK

Happy Friday, Friends!

First, I am so glad that Doodle Bugs and her Five for Friday linky is back.  And...her new button for the linky is ADORABLE!

fiveforfriday2

It's been a busy week for me.  

Number 1: We were given the "okay" to enter our classrooms on Monday to begin decorating and getting things ready.  I worked in my classroom Monday-Wednesday.  I had to take Thursday off.  First, my legs were killing me!  I was having trouble walking.  Yep, I've been lazy all summer and getting on and off desks to hang stuff up gave me quite a workout.  I needed a few days to recover.  I'm almost finished with the decorating part.  I've got a few more things to hang up and then I can get started on the organizing part.

Number 2: I live in the country and love it.  I've seen all sorts of critters in the pasture in my back yard.  NEVER have I seen deer in my front yard.  I went to start cooking supper and saw 3 HUGE deer in my front yard.  By the time I got my phone out to take a picture, they were hiding behind the bushes except for one who was staring me down.  

Number 3: I have a wall near my library that I just couldn't figure out what should go there.  While I was attempting to sleep, I remembered that the super sweet Amanda from Teaching Maddenness had posted author posters.  These will look perfect in that spot and I can't wait to share my favorite authors with my new kiddos.  So, they are printed.  All I've got to do is laminate and hang them up.  Click here to see her super cute author posters. 

Number 4: A few weeks ago, my sister's husband had to leave for training to go to Afghanistan. So, my muchkin' has had a blast playing with his cousin more often than usual. They were born 11 days apart.  Crazy! I'm going to miss spending so much time with my mom and sister when I go back to work. 

Number 5: The Carolina Blogger meet-up starts tonight.  I couldn't leave my Brayden for the night, so I will be joining these fabulous bloggers for lunch tomorrow.  I can't wait.  

I hope that everyone has a terrific Friday!

Lots of love,

    1. It was a very long table. It was still good to put a name to a face even though we didn't get to chat. :-)
