Five for Friday

Hello Everyone!!!
First off I have to tell you that I am exhausted!  This week has been super busy!  I am linking up with Doodle Bugs for their Five for Friday linky party.

1.  Earlier this week we made a trip to the Dollar Store.  My son is so excited for summer that he decided to dress up.  We had so much fun trying on these silly glasses!

2.  This week my little one has grown so much it seems.  He is starting to shake his head to say no and now he is starting to play and interact more with his brother.  I tried to get a picture of them playing swords.  Not the best pic of them but it was such a quick moment. 

3.  On Thursday our First Grade Team took a trip to the Kids Museum.  That place is so big and so much fun.  Let me tell you I was so exhausted after the field trip.  I was literally in bed by 8:30pm.  The students had sooooo much fun!

4.  Today our school had their Spring Carnival.  At our school the teachers work the booths and this year Angie (my wonderful teamate over at Teaming Up To Teach) signed us up for the Toilet Bowl toss.  The students literally have to throw toilet paper rolls inside a toile bowl thing.  It sounds innocent enough but let me tell you it gets old quick.  We had to chase those toilet rolls all over the place.  My back is killing me!  Next year we know not to sign up for that booth.  Maybe will be doing something a little more quiet.  Our carnival was from 5pm to 7pm and let me tell you I am tiiiiired!  
Here is a pic of me and Angie with our toilet! (Thats me on the left with my Starbucks in hand.)
Here is another pic of us being silly!  Our school's mascot is a Superhero so we had this football toss booth.  We found it to be the perfect picture booth.  Ha!!!!  

5.  Speaking of Superheroes I have been pretty busy this week finishing up some things.  

We are also finishing up our Earth Day unit.  The students got to take their Earth Day Patrol badges home this weekend and their citations.  They were on a mission to make sure that they take care of the Earth.  They really loved giving each other citations for littering or for wasting water.  It was awesome to see them.  (Sorry no pic!) Check out this activity here

We are starting plants next week.  I am super excited!  The students will be making grassheads and hopefully they grow long enough to become a gift for their mommy.  I am keeping my fingers crossed it all works out.  Doing it with plenty of time in case I need a backup.  Ha!

Well hope you enjoyed my week because now I am off to bed.  I really needed this weekend.  Hope you enjoy yours as well.

    1. Thank you! They have so much things at the Dollar Store I just love that place another place I love is the Dollar section at Target. Im sensing a trend! LOL!

  2. I'm one of your newest followers. The toilet bowl toss is adorable, but I don't envy your sore back. Ooooh a super hero theme! I already committed to a jungle theme for next year but you are making me rethink, LOL! And your boys are adorable. I'm a two boy mom, too. I'm sitting here listening to them wrestling and farting on each other, ugh! Better step in before we have to take a trip to the ER!

    1. Hahaha! The life of a mom with boys is filled with farting, wrestling, dirt, and action figures. I wouldn't trade it for the world but sometimes I do feel outnumbered. Ha! Glad you found my blog!
