5 For Friday - August 28

In the spirit of "trying to blog again" I am doing a 5 for Friday! Click on the header to go to Doodle Bugs blog! I am not back to school until September 1st but I have been plenty busy!

Volleyball season has started!  
My son is playing on the Varsity team this year so we started early! 
I love to watch him play! 
Nice serve Nate!

I had a "Meet the Teacher" time at school this week.  It only took me until 10:30 to get THIS ready. That is not a good sign for next week when I have to pull it all together by 8:15...yikes!

My son turned 16 this week.  I can't believe that my little 6 week preemie who had to spend 3 weeks in the NICU after he was born is now a 6 ft. tall 16 year-old.  He is really turning into a sweet young man and I am very proud of him.  We joke about the fact that he would not eat when he was born and now we cannot fill him up! (see the frozen yogurt pic below!)

His yogurt weighed twice what mine and my daughter's did!

This pretty 8th grader waited SO PATIENTLY for her schedule to arrive in the mail.  It finally arrived and she was on the phone texting EVERYONE.  She is happy that she has some classes with her friends.

 Then we had to go set up the lockers....

This is some intense decor!

I did actually get into my room for a bit this week too!  I feel like I could spend 20 hours a day there and still never finish all that I need to do.  Only other teachers would really understand that.  Here are a couple of areas in my room that are always very popular!  I really wanted to climb under the counter and read a book.  My daughter took a snooze under there one day this week when she came to help me.
I have to remember to take more classroom pics....

Well, not too bad for getting back on the wagon! 


  1. It looks like you're off to a great start! Your teens are so fortunate to have lockers. Our district hasn't allowed them in YEARS. I have teen kids too, and I was expecting the boy to eat me out of house and home, but the girls can put away their share of groceries too! I hope your first day this week is a great one!

  2. I love your rugs...I think I may have one in my future! Target, here I come...Again! Cheers to a great school year!
