Five for Friday

So, it is official - I will be back at work next week.  When do you start back?  Although I am sad to see my summer come to an end I am glad to get back in a routine.  I hope I will keep up with my blogging, but when your life gets really busy it can be tough to stay a float sometimes.



My family and I just returned from vacation.  We visited Seaside, Florida this year.   We normally go to Destin, Florida, but decided to venture a little further west.  Seaside is such a quaint town.  It has the cutest beach cottages you ever did see, plus some really great boutiques to go and shop in.  One really good perk for my family was that it sits right between Destin and Panama City, so if you want more restaurants and shopping to choose from the drive is not that far.  Here are some of the pictures I took while on vacation.  I didn't take near enough!!



While I was on Vacation I got a post in my FB feed from my friend saying that her mom wanted to sale her monogram machine.  I am now the proud owner of a monogram machine.  But let me warn you, I can barely sew a button on, so this really ought to be interesting.  I see a lot of You Tube videos in my future.  It was such a great deal {a really great deal} and I spend a fortune on monogramming, so I thought, why not!  If you know of any good embroidery programs, let me know. I have to get one before I can start putting it to use.




While getting some of my ideas/lesson ready for back to school.  I stumble across the maps from jimapco.com.  They are so cute and kid friendly.   I love to teach geography {actually anything social studies or science} and so I thought these would work perfect to put on the smart board or document camera.  You could even print them out for group activities.




I have been a #bloghoppin2015 little mama these past few weeks.  I don't enter to many competitions, but I am always down for a good scavenger hunt.  Plus, I really want to bring some iPads into my classroom.  Here a few pictures of some of the points I racked up during the #bloghoppin'2015 adventure!



Right before I left for vacation, I had lunch with these fabulous ladies I work with!


Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Oh, Snap! It's Almost August!

August is almost here - boo-whoo!!  I spent the last two days working in my room trying to get things up and ready.  I leave for vacation this weekend and when we get back, I only have a week before I return {August 5th}.  I have even dreamed of tardy bells lately.  Is that a sign that I need to get a move on things?  Did I mention that I am also totally revamping my classroom - new colors and theme?  Luckily Teacher Deals and Dollar Steals is here with a linky to cover us with #B2S products to make life easier and at a fraction of the cost.
