Well, better late than never, right? I had every intention of posting yesterday after school, but I must have been exhausted from the crazy week because I fell asleep at 4:30 in the afternoon and didn't wake up until 5:30 this morning! My hubby said he tried to wake me for dinner, but I wouldn't budge so he let me sleep. So, this is my better late than never link up for Five For Friday with Doodle Bugs Teaching!
Here is a glimpse at SOME of the craziness of the week:
I vented last week about the looooooong list of plans for this week at our school, and one of them was a door decorating contest. I just did not have the energy to even think about that with our play performance this week, so I decided to let that slide One of my teaching partners came to the rescue when he and his class surprised our class with the door decor below. Thanks Mr. Korf!
Our play was on Tuesday - and I was so busy directing I didn't take one picture! I will have to hunt some of the parents down to get a few. The afternoon performance (during school in front of all of their peers) was a bit rough, but the evening performance was much better! I am super proud of these kiddos because we had a very short rehearsal period before the play.
I did manage to get a few pics of my son, Palmer's high school play which was also this week. This was their best performance in all 4 years he has been there.
We had our Christmas concert this week as well - again - I forgot to take pictures, but I did manage to snap a picture of the tree my class made for decorations for the concert. They left me a little message I almost didn't notice! Super sweet!
In the middle of the chaotic week, I am proud to say that my students were surprisingly very focused!
Hard at work during Daily 5
And very greatful - we each got gloves from our room Mom!
And, I will end with a bit of Christmas Cheer!
One of our friends is a photographer, and every year my hubby dresses as Santa for pictures with Santa - here is a shot of him and my youngest - super cute!

And now... ready for a relaxing Christmas break!
