High Five for Friday

1.  Tonight my fiancé and I are going to a county fair in Mississippi and seeing Chris Young in concert- for only $10!  Wahoooo!!!  Bring on the fair food!  I LOVE COTTON CANDY.  And funnel cakes. Lemonade.  Hot dogs.  Beer.  Nachos.  All of it.  And country music too.  But really just fair food!

2.  I.  adore.  my.  students.
Example 1.  Check out Crystal's Pinterest worthy nails!

Example 2- part 1.  Cue the tears with this letter from a sweetheart. 
Example 2 part 2.  The back of the letter.

Example 3.  Please read my whiteboard.  
Example 4.  My hair is enthralling.  
Example 4.  One of my dearest little sister students .

3.  My dad and I butt heads a lot, especially as I grow older, but I am such a daddy's girl and realize often how blessed I am to have him.  

And getting texts like this just makes my heart sing.  

4.  plus every Maryland girl loves her some chevron, crabs and monograms.  All 3?  Be still, my heart.  (The iPhone background was made with the app Wall About You.  Let me know if you want me to make you one!)

5.  My kids took their state test this week and we made up songs to help remember the crucial information we knew they always forget and is always on the state test.  They were bopping around singing "Sound waves are (Clap clap!) longitudinal! nnd excretory system's when you- DOO DOO! ALLL week- but both of those were questions, so I know all my seventh graders got them right!  WahooO!


  1. This post made me smile, and then get teary eyed, and then smile again! I'm glad it ended with a smile!

    FYI: I'm visiting from the Her and Nicole Lovely blog hop. :-)

  2. ok, so #1, those nails are legit. #2, those letters are the sweetest things ever. what a difference you're making in those kids' lives! :)

  3. Ahhh! Love the letter from your students. It just stinks that you have been riffed, but God really does have great plans for you. You have another classroom of kids waiting to have a great teacher....YOU!
