Five for Friday...5-24-13

Haaapppy Friday Friends!!!

I know for some of you it is a very happy Friday because you celebrated the last day of school this week. I am still anxiously awaiting that celebration. I have 6 days left of school, but a fun filled week ahead with my students, so I'm looking forward to every moment, because my students deserve some fun after working hard this year.

I am linking up with Kacey from Doodlebugs Teaching for another Five for Friday!!!


Here's what I've been up to...

1. Drumroll please.......It's a......

I finally went to get my ultrasound done! Everything appears to be normal and healthy and we are expecting our second girl. My daughter Summer is so excited to be a big sister!!! My husband and I can't seem to agree on ANYTHING when it comes to names. Does anyone have any unique suggestions???? We don't want a name that is very common. I would love to hear your ideas!

2. Now that I know what we are having, my friends have been spoiling me rotten. Here are some collages of baby clothes that my friends bought me. I just love, love, love frilly girly clothes!!!!

How am I ever going to get enough of this!?!??!

3. Prayers for Oklahoma

My heart literally broke when I heard about the tragedy in Moore, Oklahoma. It really hit home when I read the countless stories about teachers who were shielding their students from the tornado. May God bless all of the victims of this tragedy.

I'm sure you may have heard already, but there are several teachers banning together to help! Teachers Notebook has organized this amazing donation drive where you can donate anywhere from $20-100 and receive $2200 worth of teaching lessons from various sellers. I donated to this worthy cause, because it's the least that I could do to help!

Also, Ashley from The Teacher's Treasure Chest has also put together an amazing donation drive that you must check out!!!

She has come together with several bloggers to put together an amazing package of goodies for a donation of $25! I am amazed at the stories of generosity that I have heard come from both of these fundraisers. It makes me proud to be a teacher!

4. Field Day

Today was our annual field day!!! We had so much fun! Some of our fun included chicken flinging, tricycles, jumbo egg and spoon relay, scooters, a running relay, a water relay, and snow cones. This really made me realize how much I am going to miss yet another group of amazing kiddos! Here are some pictures of our day...

My daughter, who also attends pre-k at my school, got to participate. I think I was more excited for her than she was. She had a blast!! I am so glad that I can be around to witness these precious moments. Here are some pictures of her field day fun...

How time flies! I can't believe this precious little girl of mine is going to be 4 years old in a month!

5. Summertime is near!!!

As summertime approaches, I am hanging on by a thread lol!!! June 4th is our students' last day and my official last day is June 5th. Ahhhhh!!!! I love all of the sayings that I've been finding on facebook and pinterest. Here are a few of my favorites...

Photo: This end of the year stuff---all this paperwork--is EXHAUSTING.  Why do I never remember it being like this at the end of every year? (must be the old age!)

Ha! I don't think I've heard a single teacher say that, especially this year!!

Oh believe me, I know!!! I will miss my students, but I am in desperate need for some R & R!!

I am so excited, because thanks to Katie at Queen of the First Grade Jungle, I bought this shirt last night for the last day of school!!!!

I am SO ready to sport this shirt on the last day of school!!! Head over to Teaching Blog Addict to check them out!! :-)

Oh and can I tell you how much I am LOVING Instagram?!?!? If you are on there, stop on by to say hi! I would love to follow you. My username is: learningissomethingtotreasure

  3. Awwww yay cute! Congrats on the baby girl! I've just found your blog and started following along! I love the skull and crossbone design!
    Your number 5 made me a little bit envious though I have to admit- we're rapidly heading into winter here and school doesn't end until December! Although I'm definitely not ready to say goodbye to my kids yet seeing as we're only just starting term two! (I'm in New Zealand)

    Enjoy your last week!

  7. We have friends whose daughters are names Sage and Sequoia. They call her Quoia for short. It's cute.

  8. Congratulations on your new little lady! I have a friend named Alonnea (the 'o' is a short o) (nicknamed Lonnie) and I really like her name...she's a close friend so I can never use it and I've never met anyone with that name.

    Congrats again and I love those "Last Day of School" shirts. :D

    You Might Be a First Grader….

  9. Love that shirt! Wish I had it yesterday for our last day. :) Congrats on another little girl!!! We have three and choosing names was the hardest thing for us as well! I wanted to name our little girl Arizona, I thought it was cute. :) We went with Cecilia, but we spell it Sicilia. (it was one of my grandma's last names) Good luck with the baby name search! :)
