Five for Friday and School's OUT!!!

Can you hear it???  The Angels are singing from the Heavens!!!
To celebrate, I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!

I'm exhausted and this was the longest week of my life!  But I got every thing done!

First of all, I have two parent volunteers.  One for Tuesday afternoon and one for Thursday morning.  I'm no artist, but these turned out pretty stankin' cute!
This was a Pinterst inspiration for sure!
I found a pack of three canvas boards at Wal-Mart and painted the trees on them.  Then I had my students use their fingers to make the "fruit."  After they placed their little finger on the tree, I write their name beside their print.
They turned out precious!

Once that was done, I wrapped 'em up and they were ready to go!

Then, since we have been in school for so stankin' long, we needed something to send home for Father's Day.  PINTEREST to the rescue!
I ran to Lowe's and grabbed a bag of garden rocks.  Had my little friends paint them with acrylic paint.  Once they dried, I used a silver sharpie to write "My dad rocks!" on them.

Then I bagged 'em up and sent 'em on!

For my gift to the kiddo's, I found this from Falling Into First.
So stankin' cute and easy!
Bubbles + Label + Ribbon = Cuteness

I wasn't expecting any end of the year gifts but I got some really precious things :)

One of my parents, seeing my obsession with all things monogram, gave me these :)

And last but not least, I have the most amazing Teacher's Assistant that I absolutely love!  She's going to another position next year :(  She has truly been a blessing to me this year and I wanted to get her something special.  She's one of those that doesn't spend any money on herself but every time I turn around she's brought something into the classroom for the kiddos.
  Who doesn't like Vera Bradley?  And as you can see...
I had to add her monogram!

Link up y'all!  It's SUMMMAAAA!!

June Currently - already?!?

I'm linking up with Farley for her June Currently but I honestly didn't realize it was already June!  (That might be because I have been neck deep in RTI paperwork!)  So here it is folks!
Listening - My husband loves to watch golf...on every TV in the house!  Keep in mind we have three...

Loving - I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!  Am I going to make it??  We have 10...more...days!!!

Thinking - Crap.  I have 10 more days.

Wanting - I really want to start taking time for myself.  I have never experienced a year like this one.  It's been pretty rough.  But on the positive students have been wonderful.  My students' parents have been supportive and involved.  I have made some new friends.  Gotta look at the positive!

Needing - I really want to get back in the gym on a REGULAR basis.  I used to run 3 miles a DAY.  Yeah.  I went from that to...maybe once a week?  If I can handle that.  I come home and do paperwork every night!

Summer Bucket List - First, my honeymoon to St. Lucia!  Woo Woo!!  Then when we get back we are southbound to the KEYS!!  WOOOO!!!
And lastly, I want to spend the summer being crafty.  I want to make some more things for my class next year.  I want to start painting.  I want to make stuff for our house.  What else???

Link up with Farley - It's SUMMERTIME Y'ALL!!
