Five for Friday.... on Friday!

You know that school must be out if I am posting Five for Friday ON Friday! Even on Spring Break I got busy and didn't get it posted on Friday. Hop over to Doodlebugs and read about everyone's week! Here are my five random things from the week.

 1. Here are my fur-babies.

These babies keep our lives full, happy and busy! Last school year, I was gone SO MUCH, long hours, and I knew our high-strung little dachshund couldn't take it! So he went to live with a friend. Shortly after we found out that I would be home more this next year and realized that a certain redhead would be around more, we got the call from the friend asking us if we wanted our little Hundley back. Of course, we did. We missed that ornery little dachshund. But just as quickly as we got excited, we were given sad news. He got extremely sick and the vet thought he would not survive. We were crushed! Enter Alice, the little terrier mix we found at the shelter. We met and fell in love with Alice and filled out paperwork to take her home with us. Then Hundley did what dachshunds who eat things they are not supposed to do.... he got well! So we went from being dog-less, a cat dominated home, to having two dogs in 2 days! The cat is not adjusting well. 


 How many of you define your vacations by what you eat?! lol. We are visiting our friends in the OK panhandle, and I definitely didn't want to miss the chance to go to Hunny's BBQ. I love the "nachos" and all the meats! I didn't take picture and you all can laugh if you need to, but in the small town that I live in, Sonic is NOT the place to go, but out here, Sonic is fast, friendly and they they get my order right, even when I change it multiple times! I was actually excited to go to Sonic out here. And this is a tradition down here....
A volunteer will go during planning period or lunch and get sonic drinks for the whole group! 
So I love my friends, and I love visiting this place. These people are truly the best and I always feel like an equal. If you know me, I doubt myself... a LOT. Seeing these friends gives me a boost of confidence and solidifies the knowledge that there are some super wonderful people in my life. So it's not REALLY all about the food. But seriously.... we plan our days around the food involved.
 3. It's officially summer for me. I actually have about an hour left at the school. I realized the other day that everything would NOT fit in my van and I might as well finish up another day. However, I am going to research and set up a book study with my friends on the First Grade Gab group I belong to. We are considering the following: The Daily Five; or The Next Step in Guided Reading; or perhaps a guided math study.  We are going to start this in June, but it's time for me to narrow down the options!! What are you all reading or doing to PD this summer?
 4. Back to my mini-vacay to the panhandle. I loved seeing my kids! I got to see several of my "babies" from my first year of teaching when I taught them in Kindergarten. They are finishing Second grade! I love them all so much! I got to take part in some of their last day activities. They played BINGO. Check it out. And yes, my colleagues really are this much fun....

5. Something BIG is coming. I can't tell you yet. But thank you all for your good thoughts and prayers and keep them coming. I am extremely excited about the future. I know God has a plan for me and I am looking forward to living up to His call on my life.

  1. Good food. Good friends. Great times!! I'm interested in your book study. Both books would be good for me. Could I join?
