Happy Friday, y'all! I'm seeing on blogs and Instagram how so many of you are winding down the school year! Hang in there - summer is near!
I haven't participated in Five for Friay for a while - mainly because after moving mid-year I haven't had a lot to share, but today I wanted to join in on the fun!
One - This past week my son and I had a lot of fun doing a nature scavenger hunt! You can read more about it HERE. My previous school had a great Nature Trail that this would have been perfect for.
Two - I have kept maps from two zoo's that we have visited and the aquarium and laminated them this week. My son LOVES to look at these maps (he is such a teacher's kid!). I was thinking this would be a good idea to use in the classroom as well! I'll be saving more when we go places that has a map.
Three - Yesterday I hand delivered resumes, letters of interest, and letters of recommendation to six schools. If you read my blog regularly, you will know that I didn't think I would be able to teach this coming year, but we have found a great Preschool for my son to go to and it allows working parents to drop their child off a little early and stay a little late so I actually could get a job this year and then next year, he could come with me! So - that's why I got out and hand delivered my stuff! One school said they have three openings - a 2nd grade, 3rd grade, and 5th grade. Online you select three preferences and I had selected 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. They told me to pick what I would rather teach between 2nd and 3rd and put that as my #1 option. So, I went to my Instagram buddies with this question....
I would be happy with either! I've had in my mind for a while that I think 2nd grade would be great - but I am happy with either! I put 2nd grade as my first choice and 3rd grade as my second choice. The job posting actually closes TODAY so I am hoping to hear something soon. I'd love to score an interview at any of the schools I went to today! What do you think - 2nd or 3rd? Or another grade?
Four - I wish I had pictures for this - but we are getting so many house projects done while I am off of work and I am loving it! My husband stained and painted a shelf to go in the laundry room, but we have to finish it with molding. We had cabinets installed in our office this week, but are waiting on the countertops to be installed. We are having a fence installed in our backyard (Hallelujah - 2 dogs without a fence has been awful!) today and tomorrow. We are having a retaining wall built next weekend to level out a place for my son's new play set - which is at the place we ordered and ready to be delivered! We have a basketball goal ordered. SO much going on! Hoping we can finish lots of these projects and more this summer!
Five - I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day! We will be celebrating my son's 4th birthday with a fun safari party! I may share the details of it next week....we are so excited!
