Five for Friday

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs again. It seems like Five for Friday link up is the only time I get to sit down and blog. This week has been BUSY!!
1-Yesterday was my little boy's 8th birthday! His party is tomorrow.  If I survive, I will post pics...

2-This photo looks like mommy & daddy's feet. NOPE! It's a pic of my foot and my 12 year old's foot. His shoe is a size 14!! Kody is already 6 foot tall.  It hurts my heart that I have to look up at him.
3-The kids learned a lot about Martin Luther King Jr. this week.  In our class, we have five different races/skin colors. I began the lesson by lining up five kids and we pointed out the things that were the same. We came up with 10 things! Then I asked them what was different. Skin color was the only thing.  We are way more alike than different...After our discussion, we noted the difference in egg colors. Busted those things up and they were exactly the same on the inside. Just like people!!...I know you all have seen these ideas on Pinterest. How did we ever make it without Pinterest??
4-Today we made a was/ had/ wanted chart of Martin Luther King Jr. We had to put our artistic skills to work!! I found this cute idea at Chalk Talk.
5-This is me at 2:00!..Just kidding..Next week we are discussing feelings. I took silly pics of each kiddo. They will write about how they felt in the photo. Of course Ms. Christy had to do a silly face too!! I probably did look like this at 3:00. We had a great day!


  1. After seeing everyone posting about the egg thing, I'm thinking I need to write that down for a must do next year. I liked how you used kiddos from your class first to show the concept. That's a great idea! Those drawings are adorable as well.
