Five for Friday & a Bloglovin' Giveaway!

Happy Friday!!  I'm linking up with Doodlebugs for this week's Five for Friday!!!


1. Today is my first day of summer!!!  Woohoo!  I feel weird not going to work!  I'm used to running around with a million things to do!

Moo is super happy I'll be home :) 

2.  Tuesday was the last day with my kiddos.  It was a sad day!  I got lots of gifts and love notes.  We did an "award show" and I gave each of them an award for completing first grade.  They also had to give a speech :)  They were so cute!  We had some silly ones ("First Grade is crack-a-lackin!!!"), some serious ones (Thank you for being my friends.  I'm going to miss all of you.), and some shy ones who just said thank you.  We had a "red" carpet and was actually a silver carpet!  They loved it.  Some walked down like they were walking down a runway.  I miss them already!!!!

3.  Yesterday I finished packing up my classroom.  I don't even recognize it.  It's not fun and not bright and not happy!  I turned my key in too.  It was weird thinking that that was the last time I'd be leaving.  It's where I did my student teaching and taught for four years.  Obviously I cried!

This is what it looked like before!

And after!  Sad, isn't it?!

I'm looking forward to setting up  my new classroom.  We're told we can get in around August 1st....I wish I could start now!  I need to start planning and organizing!!

4. I have lots of things I plan on making over the summer.  I think this one is the first!!

5.  I'm also joining in on the Bloglovin' Giveaway Linky!!  You can follow me by clicking the link on the right!  Two winners will win their choice of two products from my TpT store!

  1. I agree, an empty classroom packed for the summer looks so lonely and sad! Enjoy your summer!

  2. Yep, cleaning and packing are two of my not so favorite ways to spend a summer day. I can get back into my classroom today but I think I"ll pass. HMMMMM. It does have air conditioning though and it's supposed to be 110 degrees today. Maybe I can think of something to work on in there after all! Have a great weekend!

  3. Empty classrooms do look so sad!!! I went to get some things from mine and it made me hyperventilate a little thinking of all I need to do to get it back "right." :-/

    1. It was a lot of work packing up, but nice to go through and clean out everything!! Where are you moving to?

  5. Wow you just started your summer. I am more than half way finished with summer break. Yuck.
    Good luck with your classroom move. That's a lot of work. But in someways it is nice to start from scratch.
    Have a great week.

  6. Well it will be lovely when you get to put it all back together again :) It would be wonderful if it weren't so much work.
