It’s Friday! The first week of state tests are done. There are still two more weeks left to go.
I’ve seen this on some other blogs and thought I’d jump on the bandwagon too.
So here it is, whether you like it or not, my day in photos!
Wake up! 6:00 AM
Drive to work.
School! I got to take all the butcher paper off the alphabet, so it was an exciting day indeed.
No talking! One of the other teachers had this pig in her classroom. It’s a pig (obviously)that oinks songs. It hasn’t oinked a song all year. When did it decide to? Oh on the one day where if anything out of the ordinary happens it’s on your head as a teacher…
Math inventory. It’s amazing that there was an abacus in my closet and I didn’t even know it. Does anyone know how to use an abacus!?
I love my student’s spelling skills. That would be dog, skank, swkank, and school. Of course the word they all wanted to repeat was skank…
Gliding while eating… This is at Rudee’s in Virginia Beach. I had not known about these gliders. It was pretty spectacular.
Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!
Tonight is the finale of The Office…I am very saddened by this…
So I thought, my not share some of my favorite Office moments…err people…something…
False, Black Bear
I am really sad that The Office is ending. It’s like the end of Friends. I don’t like it. Nope not one bit. Why can’t the show just stay on forever?
I will be watching the finale in real-time, crazy I know! All I gotta say…is that Michael Scott better make a dame appearance!
I tried a new frozen lunch today. I was a little wary since it was a frozen falafel. Nine times outta ten a frozen falafel is a fail. Ooo, I love alliteration.
Howevah, after eating TaDah, my mind has been changed. It was flavorful and delicious.
Oh and they provide good advice and warnings:
How true, how true.
I had a pretty awesome weekend, if I do say so myself. We traveled down to Raleigh to celebrate my brother’s girlfriend’s Masters degree. Woohoo, Sarah!
It started off with some baseball:
The Durham Bulls have a pretty cool ballpark. It was a great night and there were fireworks soooo…
My brother’s gf graduated the next day
Can you find her?
It was a great weekend visiting with family and meeting new family members.
This week is a testing week which = not a lot of fun. Our tests are all online which means I get to walk around a watch them click through answers. Not really, my group has been good about actually trying to answer the questions.
Good job kiddos!
Happy Mother’s Day!
I was lucky enough to spend the weekend with my mama and it was wonderful
Kid President knows moms are important:
My mom is the best. Of course I’m a little biased, but it’s true. I mean who else would walk 10 half marathons with you?
She put up with my brother and I and all our crazy shenanigans.
She helped instill my love of UofM
My love of wine
And of course that’s so Raven
Happy Mother’s Day to my and all the other wonderful women in my life who helped me become who I am today!
I’m up on all the latest lingo…WTF, Why the face? Oh Phil…
No, but seriously! I was noticing the other day The Pig that people had pretty serious faces during the race…like the whole time. And then again yesterday I was at an event that celebrates, celebrates! reading and achievement. Then it hit me! These people aren’t mad, they just have:
Today I’m off on a field trip to the Children’s Museum, pray for me!
Well it’s really just one. Sorry for false advertising.
But! It’s a very good one.
This kid needs to follow me around all day. A) I just want to pinch his cheeks at every moment. That’s not creepy. B)He’s hilarious. “Thanks a lot Robert Frost!”
Caught your attention, didn’t I? As my Auntie Anne would say, “It’s a good day when you learn something!” I concur Auntie Anne!
So what did I learn? I found out that Goodwill will take your computer that you don’t need anymore. In my case a 10 year old desktop that was just collecting dust. They will take your laptop and wipe the hard drive, give it to Dell, have them refurbish it, and then give it to someone who needs it. Pretty cool, right?
Second good thing! I was at my apartment, cleaning it out, trying to be a good former tenant… I got there and was starving. I knew I’d just have to struggle through and deal with my stomach trying to eat itself. Well, while I was throwing away grocery bags I noticed something in one. What do you know, it was a Luna Bar that I thought I’d lost.
Luna Bar for the win!
I betcha didn’t know that A was for gorilla? Did ya?
When we were going over what picture showed the long a sound (either apple or ape). When we asked one little girl which picture it was she said, “Gorilla?”
Yup that about sums it up.
