Five for Friday

It's been a fun and hectic week! We're getting into the Christmas spirit at home and in the classroom so it's just been a lot of fun and excitement all week long :)

Like I said, I've been getting into the Christmas spirit and nothing does that like cookies!

The tree is also up with a special ornament!

When I was in 8th grade I gave one of my favorite teachers a pickle ornament and shared the tradition of hiding it in the tree. I now teach her daughter and when she gave me this gift of my very own pickle she was smiling ear to ear! And so was I!! 

We also welcomed back Bruno!

As you can see, he got a little lost (like where was he hiding! I'd like to know too because I spent a lot of time looking -_-) but luckily he found his way to my new school and the children have been over the moon about his adventures around our classroom this week. He even scribbled al over my science board.. Oh Bruno.

Our school was chosen to be a part of the teacher rewards program that Walmart does. Each teacher received a $50 gift card to use for their classroom!! I knew exactly what we needed.

We have a cube organizer holding up our fish tank, and it works beautifully. It's sturdy but compact, because space is an issue. Storage is an issue too, so it was a no brain-er that we could use another one for all of our books!

They look so snazzy together 😄

In personal news, I've become an old lady... But a fashionable one I'd like to think.

I learned to knit over thanksgiving and made this beauty! It's very warm and I love how chunky it is! I even had a kiddo ask me to teach them to knit during recess yesterday. Warmed my heart!

In farm news, because I usually talk about my goats, I needed to give the chickens some credit. We have an olive egger in the bunch! One chicken just started laying these beautiful dark green eggs! 

Off to make some omlets before school. Remember, after today, 3 1/2 days left till break!!!!!!!

Rock on,



  1. Love the story behind the pickle! Those eggs???? "UMMMM!! No omelets for me with green eggs!... I 'll pass" says this city girl (l.o.l)

  2. I can't wait to make some cookies! And you did a great job with the scarf!
