Five for Friday - I'm back

Spring break is here for me....happy dance, happy dance!!!!!
I don't know why but I am exhausted!!!!!!!  So, I am so happy to be starting spring break!
Gonna start with joining Doodle Bugs Five for Friday linky:)  Missed out on the one last week so I am excited to be back:)
So here's a look into my week (random and not)
#1 Reading with Billy
The therapy dog in training came 3 times this week and while his trainer is working with one of my kiddos, the others get to read to Billy and LOVE it!!
Billy is a little bored here!  Not loving the book I guess....
Ok, maybe listening a little better.....
"Cat what?!?!".....listening now:)
#2  Math, more math and test review
Fractions, decimals, and mixed numbers!
Love that each student has a dry erase board!  Great way to make sure everyone is working:)
Great for reviews too!
#3  Crazy sock day today!
Fund raiser for M.S.  The kiddos loved wearing crazy socks!  I bought the cutest pair of sock monkey socks....well either my calves are 800 pounds OR I grabbed socks for a 2 year old!!!  No stretch people....super my sock monkeys were looking a little slouchy:/
LOVE the pink panther socks....and cartoon....those were the good old days:)
#4   FROZE my tail at my son's LAX game!!!
That's him (49) warming up....the game was last night and I'm pretty sure it snowed!!!!
Ok, ok......maybe it didn't snow BUT this is FLORIDA people and I had on gloves, sweater, long sleeve shirt, scarf, jeans, socks, teeth still hurt from clenching them so hard because I was so cold!!!  Yes, this Florida gal is spoiled:)
#5  Narrative writing fun
Yes, state writing test is done and behind us but we are still writing away.  This week they got the
writing inspiration folders.  I have about 25 of these folders.  On the covers I have glued book covers.  They are to come up with a narrative inspired by the picture only...not the title.  They love this and were so excited when they got to draw their folders and see what their pic was of.

This is kinda #6....
New drink of choice.....1/2 hibiscus berry breezer, 1/2 cool water....YUM!!!
Don't forget.....Monday is:
Would super love it if you popped back by and linked up:)))))))
Have a great weekend all! 


  1. I'm glad that you showed what LAX was. I had no clue. I'm not aware of any lacrosse teams around here :)
