Five For Friday!

It's Friday, so it's time to link up with Doodle Bugs's been a busy week, but not sure if I can come up with five things to blog about! The main reason I wanted to post today was to tell you how exciting it was to meet my first bloggy friend in real life!!! Jess from I Heart Recess and I met up today at the park so the kids could play. She was visiting her sister who lives a few minutes from me! (small world isn't it??!!) We talked about 3 hours straight while the kids wore themselves out! We hit it off right away, just like we've been friends forever! It was an awesome and unexpected meet up and she promised to meet up again when she visits! Can't wait!

Me and Jess :O)
All the kids (my biggest kid...14 tomorrow, didn't come-I guess the slides didn't excite him!)
Dance recitals are over! Such a nice way to end the "dance" year, but lots of work!
We got to celebrate at Texas Roadhouse, where Lily got to ride on the saddle for her late birthday dinner! (Do you think she liked it??!!)
I got these two babies in the mail! If You Find a Rock was suggested to me by my BBB Jessica-very happy with this purchase! Notice and Note was suggested by a few friends and I can't wait to get a few minutes to actually sit down and read some of it!
 I had Common Core training all week-so I guess my summer officially started today! It was nice to see some old friends and meet new friends! I love when teachers get together and collaborate! One of our activities was to design an experiment and create a science board for it...I just wanted to share one of the boards that had a foldable on it...I liked how each member of their group shared their hypothesis on it. (never have seen this before)-our 5th graders complete science fair projects.
Go check out what everyone did this week!
***I'm promise I'm working on my giveaway-I'm overwhelmed by the support! So thankful for so many kind friends! I have the big luau party tomorrow, so hopefully Sunday! :O)


  1. Yay!! I linked up right after you! I am so happy for you that you met a bloggy buddy in person!! I am a little jealous though too:( Your daughter is just adorable! I can sympathize that dance recital week is exhausting. We are in it right now with performances Sat. and Sun. night at 7:00 and she has a full day of Kindergarten on Monday. Today was not a good day in school for her after rehearsals Wed. and Thurs. night and not getting to bed until after 9:00 each night. She loves it but it wears her out! Have a great first "real week" of vacation this week:)

  2. It was AWSOME to meet in real life today! Can't wait to hang out again on our next visit! Lily is adorable and "Dance recital week" is one reason we aren't trying for a girl :)


  3. That is so great that you guys got to meet up! Your daughter is too cute. I am so jealous that you didn't have to put her hair in a bun for her recital, I'm so tired on bobby pins and hair nets! I was just reading Holly's blog and noticing all of her professional reading suggestions - my reading list is growing to long and it is not even summer yet. Enjoy the real start of your summer vacation.
