Five for Friday { a little late }

Saturday, September 14, 2013

I have no excuses... I really don't.  I'm never late ~ seriously I'm a bit OCD about the whole late thing.  I arrive early everywhere and just wait in my car because I HATE being late.  So when I was so exhausted from being a TAXI mom Friday night I just didn't have it in me...then I wondered should I just not do 5 for Friday because of the whole lateness problem...see what I mean?!? I have a bit of a problem...but I want to get over it so I can share my week with all of you wonderful people!
So I started the week off with becoming a grandparent...LOL to an egg!  My son's homework last week was to do the laundry - Whoo- Hoo!  I'm loving middle school electives right now.  This week he has had to take care of baby 'Jessica'.  He even drew a sweet little curl on the top of her the lips he drew...LOL  ~~ So far so good.  He turns her in Monday.  He was cute making sure he took good care of her all week.
We had Patriot Day on 9/11 to remember the fallen.  I found this red and blue maxi skirt over the summer and knew it would be perfect for this day.  Our school even took a moment of silence right after flag salute.
I had lunch with this precious boy...his mom is very sick.  Prayers for 'J' and his family please.
I finished this fun little pack...I'm obsessed with giraffe's and guided reading so it seemed like the perfect match...if you want to check it on the picture.
Lastly I'm loving my 7 new computers that my dad's friend donated to my classroom.  It's perfect for my daily 5 rotation -- so thankful.  How was your week?!?  Don't forget to link on up and join in the fun.


  1. I love your blog! Pink and turquoise are my favorite colors and I love chevron! :) "Jessica" is so cute! I love maxi skirts, too...great find! I will keep J and his family in my thoughts and prayers. I'm so glad you stopped by my blog and I can't wait to follow your school year! :)

  2. Dad's friend is VERY generous. How awesome is that!?!

    Love those giraffes. Cute pack!

    I HATE being late, too. I've never linked up with 5 for Friday for that VERY reason. I suppose I need to get over it, too.

  3. Donations are awesome! Especially laptops. What lucky kids you have. I am going to check out your Guided Reading Guru now and say a prayer for J. Poor little guy. Thanks for sharing, Heather
