Five for Friday...Check out our Talent!

TGIF!  Now, I know many of you are saying thank God it's Summer, but we aren't there quite yet.  One more week.  I think I can!  I think I can!  Some good news though is that I have today off, so we have a 4 day weekend.  Too bad it's kind of cold outside :(  I'm linking up for Five for Friday today.
1. I have to share this video of our school talent show.  This is one of my favorite days every year!  I LOVE seeing our students perform their talents.  Too cute!  The teachers always do some type of "act" every year.  This year was TOO much fun!

I love my coworkers!  As we say, we work hard and then play hard.
2.  Today I will be enjoying my day off, but also filling my day with cleaning, laundry, and prepping for my almost 6 year old's birthday party.  {Shed a tear...I can't believe she's almost 6!!}
3. They are renovating our school this summer.  Most of the school has moveable walls, so they are putting in real walls and doors.  My room is in a "new" part, so I have walls, but no door.  The only renovation for me will be new carpet.  It will be nice, but it also means we have to pack up EVERYTHING :(
I do have a lot of storage space, so most of it can be put away in my own classroom.  I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that they get it done quickly and we aren't setting up our classrooms the night before school starts. 
4.  The last two weeks of school can be chaotic anyways, but you add packing up your classroom to it, and it has the potential to be out of control.  These packets have definitely helped.

5.  I think I've procrastinated long enough.  I have a date with these guys.
Have a GREAT weekend!


  1. What a fun talent show! Packing up an entire classroom is so much work. Hope they get your room completed quickly!
