Five For Friday

I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!

I am loving summer vacation, but man it has been soooo busy!  We just got back from vacation in Spokane, Washington.  We went to visit family, but we also had a great time being tourists!  A few of the highlights of the trip:
  • We went to see the new Superman movie, our first time at an IMAX theater!
Before the movie we played at the park.
  • We visited Coeur D'Alene Lake in Idaho.
  • We went to Silverwood (a fun amusement park with a water park)
  • We watched the opening game for the Spokane Indians
Can you say baseball, baseball, and more baseball? We are a baseball family to begin with because of my son playing travel ball, but this summer has been baseball to the maximum!
  • Aces' Games (the Aces are a nearby Minor League Baseball team)

  • Spokane Indians' Game
  • End of year Little League Baseball Parties (Cody earned Most Improved Player this year!)

  • All Stars Practice (Tyler earned a spot on the All Stars team, so we have been at daily practices.  His first All Star Game is on August 30th!)
Due to all of the craziness I forgot to post a few important updates - like the fact that my 2nd son graduated high school!  Now that is seriously crazy!  How did he grow up so fast????  I am super proud of this kiddo because despite several issues - fragile- x syndrome, autism, and cerebral palsy - he graduated with a standard diploma!  We had been told years ago that he might not ever walk or talk and look at him now!

I also forgot to post this school related project.  It was our last writing assignment of the year - Third Grade Was A Hoot!  I had the kiddos write about the things they remembered from this year.  The art project was inspired by Mexican folk art.

Summer has been bad for my credit cards but amazing for my teaching resources.  I have purchased a few must haves from TpT including the adorable numbers I used in this post that I can't wait to use for my place value unit!


  1. oh gosh - that park looks like a blast!!!
