Five for Friday

It is Friday, woo hoo.  I am linking up with Kacy for Five for Friday.

1.  On Monday and Tuesday, we had fall weather in California.  Leaves on the ground with kids playing and throwing the leaves.

 But, by Friday we were eating Popsicles to keep up with heat.  Crazy weather.

2.  One of my little guys made the most amazing thing with playdough.  He is 4 years old.  It is two birds on top of a cake that he made.  I think I know his future.  Wow!

 3.  I buy most of my yarn  from a person in Colorado.  She hand dyes all her yarn.  Every summer, she has a Summer Love Contest - she picks 4 to 5 pictures then dyes them in yarn.  She picked my picture this summer.  On the left is a picture, I took, of one of my dad's artichokes in bloom and the right is the picture of the yarn that she dyed.  I am going to knit a shawl with my yarn.

4.  I know a lot of you have been back to school for a couple of weeks or are going back this next week.  I wanted to show you what my classroom looks like.

The cubbies and the kids' tables are bare.  So much work to do.

All that stuff at the back of the room needs to be put away.  Bulletin boards need border and goodies.  But, I don't have to do it.  The new teachers rotating into my room have to get the room ready.  Because, I packed up my room and I am starting my vacation.  I, already, taught my first two months of school - I teach at a year round school.  So, I have the months of September, January and May off.

5.  I am heading here.

I am heading to the island of palm trees, beaches, water, mai tais and my hubby.  Now, I just need to pack.
I hope you have a great weekend.
Pin It!


  1. Have fun on your trip - I wish I was somewhere on some beach!


  2. The cake your students made is amazing! And the yarn is just gorgeous! Have a wonderful time in Hawaii.
