Five for Friday {March 22}

Oh Everyone in the Squirrels household is "Happy, Happy, Happy!"
Today at 3:10pm my Spring Break officially started!
So I have my bikini ready, my suntan lotion is packed and my fake ID is ready to go to the beach!!!

Wait, hold on- that was the case 24 Spring Breaks ago-
Not so much....

Those buses rolled and we were BUS DUST!!!!
My bag may or may not have been ready to go when said buses GOT here today!

We do have our bags packed because there is a little trip for part of the break- but there will be NO beaches, we do NOT need suntan lotion, and NO ONE will be seeing this Squirrel in a bikini......I shudder....

On top of the break, today's bonus is the link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching and
Five for Friday. Here are five randoms from the week

1. First we'll start with what we see when we leave for school.
Each morning Littlest Little and I turn the corner from my house and when the sun is shining, we say

"Morning, Shrek!"

It's the shadow of our van....but doesn't it look like Shrek?? Anyone have a vehicle that looks like Fiona? We should hook them up!

2. After only SEVEN days of being live, my Donors Choose project was funded! I was floored- the generosity of  family AND strangers is overwhelming!
This is the Cubby Station that I will have in our room soon. I can't wait to use it for their binders and their belongings!

3. Mr. Barkley became a full fledged hunter/giver of gifts this week.
He felt the need to stalk, capture, {kill} , and then share with me what I thought was a little field mouse.
Not so. It was {I stress}  WAS a baby mole.
A moment of silence please.

Bad boy.

4. Great news on the classroom front.
This week Miss D arrived!
Miss D is our student teacher. She is a sweetie and I think my sweeties are already in love!
She has already had a placement in another grade at a different school, so she is way past the "observation" mode. She already took over a few lessons!
I went in this last weekend to create a "space" for Miss D in our room. It is only 2 months that she will be with us, but I really felt like I needed to do this. When I student taught I never felt like I had a place to unpack and be a teacher. I didn't want Miss D to feel that way~ (and I don't think she does)

5. And this was just a few minutes ago, actually- I had to wait on "My Guy" at the nail place- We didn't have much time, so I went with a color (I haven't had a "color" on my nails in Y.E.A.R.S!!!!!
And now I have something that I have NEVER had on my nails.....


I will be on an off for this next week- I have to get my "workspace" straight .....we'll see!


  1. Enjoy that vacation!! Love your squirrel on your nail!
