Five For Friday June 6, 2014

My first week of summer vacation is over and it is Friday!  Time to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching!

Since I didn't post last week, I felt like I might need to fill you in! Memorial Day Weekend had a rocky start.  I was looking forward to my three day weekend, summer preview when...

Tyler had a baseball tournament this weekend, and Cody asked to play at the park with Luke.  I got a frantic call from his cell phone from another kid at the park saying that Cody had broken his arm.  I ran over there and sure enough his arm was twisting a way that an arm should not twist.  We rushed him to the hospital where they decided he would need surgery to reset it.  He was so brave and such a trooper, but 10 hours at the hospital was rough.  

He is now happily sporting a pink cast.

On the last day of school, I received the best gift ever!

Each of my students placed their hand print along with their name on the fabric, and then a parent helper sewed and quilted it.  I love it!

My third child graduated from high school last week and I can tell you, it hasn't gotten any easier - the tears flow just as hard for the third as the first.

This year he was a T.A. (teacher's assistant) in the special education classroom. He really loved working with the students in that class.  Not only did he want a picture with him and his best friend, but he also wanted a picture with one of his "students" from his class.  He said of all the kids in school he will miss the ones in that class the most!  If film making doesn't work for him, I think he might have a future in special ed!

While we waited for the ceremony to start, Luke played with my cell phone and took a million selfies.  These are just a few!

He also gave me a glimpse into the future later that night...

During our first week of vacation we were able to celebrate Cody's 12th birthday at Dave and Busters.  What a way to honor his last year before he becomes a teenager! Where does the time go????

It is that time of the month again.. time to win a $25 gift card from Teachers Pay Teachers!
