Five for Fraturday

It's crazy to think, but this was my LAST week of teaching for the year! We start our state tests on Monday, so I will probably have nothing teaching-related to say. Then my last day is May 28, and hopefully I will be sharing some cute baby pictures very soon afterward!


Over the weekend, we took advantage of the beautiful weather and decided to make a quick day trip to VA Beach. We weren't getting in the water (well, they got pretty close), but it was the perfect day to get a little salt air in our lungs!

A certain little boy takes after his daddy and would stay at the beach forever if we let him! He and Steven kept running toward the water to get their feet wet, and then they would run back to me. Keagan cried a little when it was time to go. I have to admit that if we had the chance to move to the beach, I would probably go with very little hesitation!


Monday and Tuesday were Field Day at school. The weather, at least in the morning, was perfect then, too! We were supposed to have field day at the end of last week, but it was rained out. We always wrap things up by lunch and go back inside, and both mornings were mild temps with a little breeze.

I had quite a few people fuss at me for being out there, especially for both days, but I loved it! I brought out my lawn chair and lathered up with sunscreen. On Tuesday, I even managed to squeeze into a New Kent t-shirt to show my school spirit!


On Wednesday, our PTO served the staff with a potato bar. It was delicious! They also had us put our names in a bucket for flower arrangements. I won the lilies, and then I had a sweet student also bring in the adorable Gerbera daisies (which happen to be my favorite). My husband laughed when I came out with all of these flowers!


Since I'm drawing near to the end, baby gifts are starting to flood in! I had two lovely co-workers bring in hand-made blankets earlier in the week, and then the school threw a baby "sprinkle" for me yesterday morning. Funny thing was that I was running a little late, so I had a few friends a little panicked that I had gone into labor (especially since I'm not usually late). Oops!

But I've been really blessed by all of these amazing gifts! We already have a lot of things from Keagan that we saved, but I'm pretty well stocked on diapers and wipes, and Caffrey even got a few cute outfits and books of his own!


Finally, to round up Teacher Appreciation Week, we are having a laminator giveaway over at Adventures in Literacy Land. Be sure to enter!


  1. Pretty flowers! Our PTA brought us barbequed chicken, potato salad, tossed salad, macaroni salad, and fruit salad. They're amazing. Have a great week!
