Five for Friday...Flashback {May 10 edition}

      Happy Friday y'all!   This has been a really long week.  It was just Tuesday and felt like it should be Friday already!  We have sooo much end of the year stuff going on that I just feel exhausted thinking about it.  And, I don't think next week will be any better!  I will have no - none - zilch - absolutely no planning at all next week.  Ugh!  I'm sooo not looking forward to that!  But, on the brighter side, we only have ten days of school left!!  Yipee!!

      Friday also means linking up with Amanda at Teaching Maddeness and Doodle Bugs Teaching.  I just love these two linkys!!


      We are anxiously waiting for our caterpillars to turn into butterflies.  They should be in the pupa stage when we return on Monday.  I sure hope we don't miss them hatching since we only have ten days of school left!  I can't complain though!  They were a gift from a sweet mom/teacher who sent them down as a surprise when we returned from our butterfly center field trip last week.  The caterpillars are really getting big and were starting to make their way to the top of the container today!  So exciting!!

      Were you spoiled for Teacher's Appreciation this week?  I hope so!  Our school, PTO, Partners in Education, and parents really spoiled all of us!  I wish I had gotten some pics, but I wasn't thinking apparently!  So, I give you this:

      My son rescued a cute kitty this past week!  We fell in love!  Well, almost all of us!  My sweet hubby would say, "Who is you little friend We?"  He did not fall in love!  We kept it overnight, but that was it.  The mister found a forever home very quickly!  A man, from his work, and his wife fell in love with the pics because it reminded them of a kitty they had many years ago.  They decided to name it - Mira, but pronounced more like Mirror because she was a mirror image of their former kitty!  Sweet!

      We also this week got to try out Adventure to Fitness!  It was soooooo much fun!!!  I blogged about it HERE!  If you haven't tried it with your kids, you must try it!  The kids love it!  


      And, for Mother's Day, we made ceramic tiles with their handprints.  They turned out so cute!  

      All I did was use 6x6 ceramic tiles, acrylic craft paint, a Sharpie, and clear spray enamel.  Easy peasy!  And mom's everywhere like to be reminded of how sweet their little one's hands are!   They can hang them up, use as a coaster, or trivet, or anything they'd like!

I hope your week was great!  Can't wait to read about it!!
