Five for Friday

      Normally, I would be happy, happy, happy that it was Friday, but it has been mid-winter break here for the kiddos.  Teachers got Monday and Friday off, but had to work Tuesday-Thursday.  Kinda weird, but it did give us time to work in our rooms and get some planning done.  That's always a plus, right?

      This week, I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday.

1.  In my previous post, I talked about my new pencil sharpener from Classroom Friendly Supplies!  I absolutely LOVE it!  I've had show and tell with my co-workers this week and they are ordering too!  I should get some credit for that!  Don't cha think?!  Ha!

2.  I have this slight HUGE obsession with my iphone.  I also love all things girly so I bought this app called Wall About It.  It creates CUTE monogrammed wallpapers for your iphone.  Love, LoVe, LOVE!  Here are a couple of my favorites:

3.  My son made our high school baseball team!  He was on the team last year as an eighth grader so there wasn't much doubt that he would make it this year, but it's always exciting to get your new gear!  They got their batting practice jerseys, hat, batting gloves, team t-shirts and shorts, and cleats.  Of course, all of it had to be inspected and tried on!  I'm so proud of him!

4.  My oldest son's car had to have a new engine put in so he got his car back this week.  The sweet guy was bringing my class pizza for our Valentine's party when the car died!  It's been a hard week going from a three car family to a two car family even if it was just for several days.  He commutes to college so we had to arrange for him to get to his classes as well as to work.
      (I didn't take a picture of the engine!  Should have!  It cost enough!)

5.  For the past two weeks, we have thought that my sweet, precious hubby had prostate cancer.  A friend of ours, who is a urologist looked at his paperwork and asked, "You haven't changed your name, have you?"  We never even looked at the name!  We couldn't take our eyes off the diagnosis!  We are beyond happy and thankful to God that it is not his diagnosis, but have definitely been praying for the man whose paperwork we received!  The other problem is that this practice gave out another man's information and really have no remorse for it.  And, where did my hubby's information end up??  Anyhow, we are thankful beyond measure, but some things are still going to have to be resolved with the doctor's office.

      Well, those are some of the highlights from my week.  There have been some ups and downs this week, but I'm always thankful for the life that God has given to us!

      I hope your week has been amazing!

Till next time...
