Friday Favorites 3/27/15

At 3:30pm today Spring Break will start!!  I can't wait! Oh how this teacher has needed this break!
My favorite thing about this spring break is:
1.) I am not working (in the past I always worked a part time job)
2.) I am not traveling (I usually traveled to see Josh for half of the break)
3.) I have absolutely zero obligations!  WOO HOO!

So here are a few of my Friday Favorites!  
I am teaming up with Erika to share my favs from this week!
This week was a great one.  It was super busy, but sometimes I like a fast pace right before a break to have something to look forward to and it keeps me busy!  

 We had a FUN week at school!  When I taught first grade I also did a countdown before holidays and the last day of school.  This year had been a whirlwind learning a new grade, but I finally buckled down and did a countdown.
I put little papers inside with little activities on them for the day.  Let me tell you, KINDERGARTENERS LOVE this!!!  They absolutely love it!  We "pop" one a day and it is like Christmas to them with I read out what we are doing!  
 This is two of the five things we did :)

Fruit loop season trees
 They LOVED this!  They used up to 10 fruit loops on their trees!  It was a great learning experience!

Jelly Bean Butterflies
I blogged about how to make these beauties HERE.  Our kiddos loved these!  They were so easy to make.  We counted and graphed all the different colors!  It was truly a treat!

Ok so... this is basically my favorite picture ever.  This is my sister, niece and nephews.  The boys would not stand by the bunny and it cracked me up to see their reaction of him in this picture :)

I love a baby when they just wake up.  This is my nephew who just woke up :)  
Love me some bed head!

Josh had a race Wednesday night at a local race track.  I love watching him race!  He's so competitive, and it's neat to see how hard he works.

Well that's it friends!  Come back to tomorrow!  I will be sharing my secrets of packing for a short trip :)

Happy Weekend!
