Insta Friday

Happy Friday!

I may or may not be linking up with new {but not brand-new} momma Jeannett 
{Baby Owen was born at 4:30 the other day. Congrats!}
at Life Rearranged for my week via Instagram

I am happy to say that I have been more productive this week.
Which is much better than last week's non-productivity. 

 Remember, how last week we worked very hard and re-landscaped our front yard?
Well, now we've decided to rip up the back yard.
Are we nuts or what?
Oh, the joys of home ownership.
 Scott and I were only going to Sears to pick up a gift for my nephew.
Apparently, my husband gets distracted by shiny objects.
Especially this ratchet. Which, I was told, that we need!
When would we need this humungous thing?
 If you read my Monday post, then you learned that
 I made a three tier stand for my Bucket Fillers in my classroom.
I'm happy to report that it is still standing in one, complete, happy piece.

 Here are a few pics of the place where I go running.
It is a fitness track located on our barrier island.
Our Indian River Lagoon surrounds part of the track.
It is beautiful, peaceful, and my absolute favorite place to go.
In addition to the fitness track, there are tennis courts,
racket ball courts, picnic tables, a playground, and BATHROOMS!
  It was my privilege and honor to watch my niece and nephew {and their friends}
for my sister while she was hard at work.
My nephew is holding two of their new chicks.
They are too cute!
As you can see, the older ladies prefer to hang out close to
the porch and check them out through the screen.
And since it is hot as blazes, the kids love to play in the pond.

Gotta get my free Slurpee!
  My nephew's birthday party.
Target has these seriously funny signs in their dollar spot.
This one says /Epic Fail/ and has the person falling off his bike.
Parker is obsessed with the "Epic Fail" app.
I knew the sign would be right up his alley.

Both brothers got a present on Parker's birthday.
Scott and I are taking them to see WWE Raw in Jacksonville.
Lord help me!
 Today, I had to go in to work! Boo!
Our leadership team at school has decided to reorganize EVERYTHING!
Everybody was rushing up to the screen to see
where their classroom was being moved to.

Luckily, I am not moving.
However, our entire school is departmentalizing.
All K/1's, 2/3's, and 4/5's will be teamed up.
I am slightly freaking out that I will be the reading teacher for KINDERGARTNERS!

I will be blogstalking you K teachers even more now! Help!!!

I'm leaving this post on a high note.
My new statement necklace came in today!
Isn't she purty????
I got it on Etsy for a bargain.
I love it!
You can get yours {HERE}

Well, that's my week.
Now, I'm off to read some K blogs...


  1. I bought a blue and yellow one!! I looove them!!

  2. I love the title of your blog! I really enjoyed tying kids shoes in kindergarten. Fun pictures!


  3. Wow, I can believe they just sprung departmentalizing on you guys in the middle of summer. I used to teach kindergarten and my partner and I did it one year. There are pros and cons, I personally think kdg and 1st graders do better with the consistency of one teacher. The good thing about it is hopefully you are teaching your strong subject which can be a plus for the kids. Good Luck!
