5 for Friday

I haven't linked up in forever with Doodle Bugs for the
But before I get to my 5 for the week here is my answer to my 2 truths and a lie. Yes, everyone is correct I guess I'm not good a lying. But it isn't to far from the truth. My lie was that I have worked in 4 districts the truth is I have worked in 3 districts in 4 years! My truths were that I have never taught above first grade and that I teach at my old elementary. Now to my 5.

1. We started our didgeridoos this week after learning about them last week. We are wrapping up our Australia unit next week with a big project!

2. I didn't get a picture of this last night but it was science fair/math night at school. I was in a room playing math games. So much fun to seeing my students and their families.

3. It was crazy weather last night and this morning. It was snowing. The picture is from the parking lot this morning at school. It started snowing right when I got there and this was about 30mins afterwards.
Now here is a shot from this afternoon walk with Stout.

Beautiful spring day.

4. It was a student's b-day today and these were the fancy cupcakes everyone got. Good think it was a half day and I didn't have to witness the sugar crash!
5. We had early release for everyone today so I got to come home early. Which really meant I went to Target and the grocery store. I did get to spend a few hours with my bestie and I get to see her again tomorrow.

That is my random 5 for this week. Now to go watch TV before Mr. J gets home from class.

Productive Weekend and a Linky

Happy Monday! We had a very productive weekend at home :-) Here are some pics from our weekend. It always goes by so fast but only 10 more school days (including today) until spring break!

My Parents came over and two trees went down! Love that my Dad had to hangout a bedroom window to cut it down

How we celebrated St. Patrick's Day. Green waffles for breakfast and Chinese food for dinner.

Stout saying hello to his brother Tim while his tank got cleaned.

My red pepper had little peppers inside of it

How Stout watched from the window of the boys cutting down the trees. 

We made a quick trip to Old Navy to look at this outfit for our ring bearers. Love it so we bought it :-)
Some cleaning happened too. Now to keep the energy up until spring break. Science fair this week, music recital next week and wrapping up our Australia unit!

I'm also linking up with Mrs. Reed from Flying into First Grade for her

This week it is to tell two truths and one lie about yourself. Then you lovely people are to try to guess the lie :-)

1. I have taught in 4 different districts.
2. I have never taught above 1st grade.
3. I currently teach at the elementary school I attended.

Now try to guess the lie! Have a fabulous week! I will share my lie in a later post :-)

March Currently

New month means a new currently!! I'm linking up with Farley for this month currently.

Decided to rent Skyfall tonight and lucky us Stout decided that he is sleepy :)
Today marks 5 months until our wedding!! It's going by so fast!
I'm throwing my future sister in law a baby shower next month and I need to get some stuff done.
I want to go shopping for new bikinis for this summer! Need them for Hawaii/wedding, boating with the fam and maybe one more vacation in June.
I feel like I'm always needing to clean. 
I found the last one hard to think of thing but who doesn't like eating, I'm a teacher because I do love elementary age kids and I don't hate eggs but I will only eat them scrambled so I pretty much hate all other eggs. 

Now back to watching the movie. Night!
