High Five for Friday!

Thursday, March 13, 2014

THANK GOODNESS for daylight savings! My long commute has been beautiful this week. I am loving the sun shining down on me on my drive home instead of it setting on me. Hah!

I just need to give my personal laminator a shout out. It was quite possibly the best purchase I've made as a teacher. It comes in handy so much!

We've been deep in space this week and the kiddos have really enjoyed learning about each of the planets. They have been using these posters to research about planet sizes, distances from the sun, etc. Find these fun activities on TPT here!

Another reason daylight savings is so stinkin' awesome is because I can actually get things accomplished at night. Car wash for the win!
*On a side note… does anyone else HATE car washes? My car got stuck once and the car behind me hit my car and then I was pushed into the car in front of me. I was literally screaming in my car because all I could do was watch it happen. I couldn't open my door or everything would get wet. Luckily everyone was moving slow enough that it did no damage but it for sure stressed me out! Now I live in fear whenever it's time for a car wash. Hah!

I am officially half a century old today. YIKES!
Looking forward to fun with friends celebrating this weekend. =)

Happy Friday, Y'all!

  2. Happy Birthday!! I have just recently developed a strong dislike of car washes! I went last weekend and the front door of the wash closed while I was in there and I freaked out!! That place needed a panic button because I would've been using it!!
    Hope you enjoy your day!
