Five For Friday!

Five For Friday!
I haven't linked up for months to this fun linky with Doodle Bugs Teaching! Glad to be back!
My most exciting event from this week was meeting one of my BBBs!
Do you know Holly from Fourth Grade Flipper? Well, I got to meet her in real life!
She's so sweet, caring, and we hit it off right away! When we met, she hugged me so tight, I felt like I was reuniting with a friend I hadn't seen in twenty years! :) She's beautiful inside and out!
We met at Rebounderz, an indoor trampoline arena, so our kids could play together and we could chat. They loved this place, but it's hard work jumping non-stop! Then we went to lunch where we talked non-stop there too!

Our girls loved each other! Guess what? They're both named Lily and they're both 6! And, do you remember Holly and I hit our 1,000 follower blogging milestone within hours of each other? And, our husbands both love ping pong? So many things in common!

After our meet up, we decided it wasn't enough time with each other, so a couple of days later her family came over for dinner.
We started getting silly trying to find the "right" background to take our pictures! You know how girls are! 
Our husbands had a great time playing ping pong while Holly and I talked the whole time!
Looking forward to our next meet up!
I took two of my students to dinner at Chili's for earning 600 points in Reading Counts! They are avid readers who are on a mission! They read a chapter book almost every night!
My friend Molly from Lucky to be in First is having an AMAZING giveaway that I'm super excited to be part of!
You have to check it out! TONS of prizes!
The winner from my Pin to Win for my new Volume Scoot Game {Task Cards} is...
Congratulations Rosie! I hope you and your students enjoy this game!
You can still grab this game for $1.25 until midnight tonight!
And my final Five for Friday is one of the reasons I haven't been able to link up on Friday nights...
My husband and I are playing on a co-ed team with my neighbors and we're doing great! Our team is 4-0, with a double header tonight! I hope to see you back tomorrow for Spark Student Motivation!


  1. Wow! It was such a nice suprise to see I won your Volume Scoot! Thanks so much!


  2. Yay!!! Did you notice that we have many of the same pictures AND we linked up right next to each other? It's scary how in sync we are! :) Good luck at that double header tonight! I can't wait to hear about it. Love that you took your students to Chili's! XXOO

    My suitcase was 51 lbs. so I just took out the jumbo pack of Post Its and moved them to Lilly's suitcase! Voila! It worked out with no $75 fee! :)

  3. I love how you took your students to Chilis! We have a similar incentive in my class - they get lunch with the teacher when they earn 25 AR points.

  4. Your meet-up with your blogging buddy sounds like such a fun time!!! Bless this blogging community and all of the amazing people you can meet through it!

  5. You and Holly are too cute!! Do you have a ping pong table at your house - I may have to rethink my vacation plans : ) So sweet that you went to dinner with your students as a reward - a reward for you too - a dinner out : ) Hope your game went well!

  6. Aw, this is all so fun!! I love the pictures of you and Holly! Hopefully one day I'll make it to Florida with my family! I love that you are playing kickball! It sounds fun, but I would not be good at it! :O)

  7. Awwww...I love the pictures of you and Holly together!!! How did I not know about this kickball stuff that you are doing? Too fun! XOX
    Rockin' and Lovin' Learnin'

  8. Loved hearing about your visit with Holly!! So fun!
