Five for Fraturday: May Edition

Saturday, May 16, 2015
Oh HEYY mid-May!  You came around pretty quickly.  Time, I am NOT complaining because every minute, day, week that passes means I am closer to sweet sweet Summer.  As long as you slow down right around June 12th (my last day).  I know some of you lucky ducks are done already.  I still have a week of Keystone Exams (all teachers are required to help out!!), three Kindergarten graduations to attend across the state and a full week of grading, report cards and all that jazz. Here's what I have been up to lately.
Do you teach Kindergarten? Do you send home a summer packet? I am sure you do.  

I compiled one with some great freebies.  But since I teach in a cyber setting, I have to MAIL it! Writing addresses and licking envelops is not my strong suit, all.  Some kiddos may be getting theirs towards the end of June at the rate I am going... Here's some of the freebies I included.

Summer Learning Fun! ~  Summer Calendar & Sight Word Activities
Calendars with daily activities by Learning Ahoy

We had our last PD of the year.  I was literally the first person to show up.  Even before the principals.  Why? So I could secure a table for my K team at the back of the room closest to the bathrooms since I go about 100084x a day. No joke.  

Anyway, we always get our obligatory picture when the 10 of us are together.  Selfie style this time.  Someone needs to get this girl a stick already!!



I can't believe I am sharing this but gotta keep it real.  My feet/ankles/legs (mainly my left) have been swelling like CRAZY! 
I have reached month 6 of pregnancy.  And I really should clean my bathroom mirror.  It's hard to reach with that bulging belly, however.


As I type, hubs is putting the final coat of paint on baby boy's room.  Here's what it looks like now plus the two things I bought for the room thus far.




Memorial Day Close Reading Pack. 2 bucks!! 
It was FREE this morning for an hour but you probably missed it since you don't follow me on Facebook yet! Don't lose out again!!


I can't.stop.downloading.chevron.paper.
This is by: Ralph and Arthur.  I discovered him/them/her? today.  What is cool is all of their schtuff is FREE for personal use and then you can purchase individual licenses or a pack of 5 licenses. 

Enjoy your last weekend before a three day weekend! Or maybe you are already having a permanent summer weekend?  I won't know unless you leave a braggy comment about it! ; )





Currently: May

Saturday, May 2, 2015
It has been quite awhile. Mostly because of this:
Before I get to Currently, a quick pregnancy update in numbers:

23 weeks
17 more to go
baby stahl is 1 lb 11 inches
mom to be is +14lbs

If it weren't for Currently and Five for Friday, I'd probably never blog so thank you ladies!


Hubs is painting baby's room.  I was going to clean the upstairs bathrooms but fumes are pretty strong so I am couch sitting/blogging instead.  I really do wish I could help!
Here is my Pinterest-inspirations for his room: {click the pics for the original source}

Map, neutral, striped curtains.- I would probably add more of a nautical slant to this. I'd add some navy blue (in the curtains), the footrest/ puff would be cute with a compass rose design and an anchor or boat themed rug. Make it a little more playful.

nautical nursery...love the map of the lake, which goes with the theme of the secret name Adam and I have chosen for our hypothetical child, non-conceived child

I love the map

Moving on: New Opportunities

Well first, I am loving being back in school--grad school-- to obtain my Master's in Reading and Reading Specialist cert.  Just finished my first class and then...
I landed the opportunity to contribute to Education.com  as they are building a Lesson Plan database.  I am SO excited to be working for them over this Summer!!

We have a million and one things going on the next few weekends.  Today is the calm before the storm: birthday parties, Mother's Day, cookouts, work trips.

While I am obviously looking forward to Summer and no school, I am afraid my pregnant butt will get lazy and gain too much unnecessary weight so I am really trying to stay focused on being healthy and exercising which for me is just walking and maybe swimming.

I am taking two grad courses this Summer, I have a long list of TPT products since I haven't made anything significant since 2014 and I am dreaming of the day our baby boy joins us and we are a family of three.  I just hope I can keep a good balance and be the best I can at all my jobs!!

If you made it through this, here is a goodie for Cinco de Mayo!

Happy May : )
