Five For Friday: Summer Time

Oh how I love Fridays... during the school year... but during the summer it's just a reminder that another full week of summer have come to an end and makes me a little sad if I'm being honest.  That's probably one of the main reasons I haven't joined this link up in quite some time, but today I acknowledge that my summer is half way over and I join once again Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!

I've been working on a huge project for my house over the past week.  I don't want to give it away until it's finished, but I've been getting lots of help from my little girl. She's a DIYer in the making!

I've also enjoyed introducing my sweet little girl to the Disney Princesses this week.  We've watch Cinderella, The Little Mirmaid, and Beauty and the Beast multiple times this week.  I  I started collecting the Disney DVDs in college as they came out of the vault so I would have quite the collection for my kids and it's totally paying off!

So on Wednesday I decided I should at least look at the items in my school that have sat untouched since my last day of PD.  I wanted to organize all of my math vocabulary cards that I bought from Mellissa O'Bryan.
I love them and can't recommend them enough!!!  I had printed on cardstock at my print shop and laminated them and then they sat on my desk for the better part of a school year.  I'm ashamed to say it.  So I'm determined to use them this year in several different ways. First, I'm organizing them by Units (determined by my school district), next I'm labeling them by unit and then alphabetizing them all to create a glossary of math vocabulary for my students in their math journals that will be color coordinated by unit.  It's going to be a task especially when I have an 18 month under my feet all day long.  This was the help she offered me as I was labeling the cards by unit.
Luckily they were already laminated so a little polish remover did the trick!

My sweet husband has already had to go back to work on the principal contract, but he's been working so hard to help around the house when he's home.  He even made this little spread sheet to help keep things picked up and organized. 

 It was inspired from this article.  It really is helping us keep a cleaner more organized home.  Love that guy!

Last but definitely not least, Little Bit and I got to get out of the house for a play date this morning with our friends from church
The girls weren't huge fans of the spraying water, and just wanted to eat their snacks and watch everyone play in the water.  


  1. I can't wait to see what your project is that you are working on. Love that you have been watching the Princesses! XO
