Five for {Friday}….Saturday…Again

I try….really I do….every week.  I promise myself that I am going to get this done and actually link up on a Friday.  Yet every week it’s the same story.  I am dead asleep on my couch by 9 on Friday night and once again I am linking up on a Saturday….sigh.  One of these days…I guess I’ll just keep trying!

This week was c.r.a.z.y.  It was Homecoming week at the high school that our school feeds into so we played along and had a spirit week of our own.  On Friday, we ended the festivities with the annual homecoming parade.  It is a highlight every year with the band, floats, football players, cheerleaders, homecoming royalty, and LOTS of flying candy….a teacher’s dream!  “Our” football player who comes to read to us every Thursday is not only a star player on his team and a fantastic reader and role model, but he was also nominated for homecoming king.  My kiddos were so excited to see him drive by in the convertible Mustang and I wish I had taken a picture of his face when he saw my class cheering with their signs they made that spelled out, “Cory Rocks,” and “We {heart} #5,”  it was priceless.  And it earned my class extra amounts of candy being thrown their way.  I may or may not have been nailed in the back of the head by a flying box of Dots. {ouch!}

The weather finally cooled off here in the desert this week.  I love picking them up in the morning and seeing them bundled up in sweatshirts whining that “It’s freezing out here.”  Yeah, freezing…..its 64 degrees.  Where I grew up that’s still shorts weather!
Anyways,  cooler weather means that I can leave the gym and attempt to get my fitness on by jogging the neighborhood.
Not too bad for my first run since May!

Teachers Pay Teachers and Facebook added some excitement to my day!  Had to add online shopping to my list of chores for the day!

I finally finished my newest product and just in time for the sale this weekend! .  My Halloween themed math workstations.  My class LOVES math workstations.  They are especially obsessed with “Whiz Kid Lawn Care.”  I had to make a fall themed version for our next round of stations.  It’s included in my Halloween themed pack.

Parent Teacher Conferences.  Enough said!  I will be spending the rest of my weekend making sure I am prepared to tackle 23 conferences in 3 days this week!  Hope my voice holds up!  Thank goodness for my data binder.  It really does make prepping for conference a breeze!
Okay,  I feel better now.  I blogged, did 4 loads of laundry, uploaded math workstations, now all that’s left is a quick jog and I can fall asleep on the couch again tonight.  See you all next Friday….I hope!
