Five For Friday ! (Better Late Than Never!)

After a long time of lurking, I’m FINALLY linking up with Doodlebug’s Five for Friday! Here are 5 random things that happened during my week…not too much classroom related as practicing for our first Holy Communion has been taking up a LOT of our time!

 WE LOVE GO NOODLE! Saw it on a blog about two months ago. Tried it, and I never looked back, but this week, we needed a lot of it to get our scootchy little bodies moving! My munchkins are making their first Holy Communion next Saturday, so we’ve been practicing like CRAZY and all that time in church is making us extra antsy! Luckily, Rad Chad, Maximo, the Funky Chicken and the rest of the GoNoodle gang are the perfect remedy for that!

My old iPhone 5 was on its way out, so this week I went and got a snazzy, new, GREEN iPhone 5C! I’m ecstatic to have a phone that works again!

On a very somber note…my community is dealing with a tragic loss this week. A senseless act of violence over a prom proposal in a local high school took the life of a beautiful, kind, and loving girl. People I love knew her, were close with her, taught her. My heart is broken for them, for her family, for the school. Please keep Maren, her family and the Milford Community in your thoughts and prayers.

Some brighter news, after getting all that sad news Friday during the day - I’m an aunt!! My stepbrother and his wife welcomed a baby boy on Friday night! They were away visiting friends (one last get away before baby!) and Baby decided to make his appearance a little early! Little Guy is healthy, and his mama is doing well! I can’t wait to meet him (and take some pictures!) when they finally get to bring him home!

 FINALLY! I posted about this on Thursday night, but my grade partner and I are having a GIVEAWAY! Check out this post (here) for a chance to win some fonts, some awesome resources and a $20 TpT gift certificate!

Have a great weekend!

  2. Thank you for stopping by! I enjoy comments because it's a pleasant reminder that people are actually reading my blog.
    I recently found GoNoodle too, and my kids love it!
    Sorry to hear about the loss in your community. I can tell it must be a small, close community, which makes these situations even more difficult.
    Enjoy your new phone! I have that exact phone and love it!
