Five for Friday!

Today is the last day before August..... which is absolutely crazy. This summer is flying by! 

I received some unexpected assignments for my summer grad class. Needless to say, the busiest time of the year is going to be a whole lot busier this year. I have to create a professional development plan for teachers at my school and possibly district to use. AAAHHH 

This is my life- every day

I have also been kicking it into high gear and getting things ready for the classroom. I am incorporating some new pieces into my already bright and colorful room thanks to the GORGEOUS watercolor flamingo collection from Schoolgirl Style. I {LOVE} flamingos and can't wait to see how this all turns out. 

I have also started reading Wonder. This is going to be our first read aloud/novel study. So far I'm loving this book and think it has some great lessons to teach my students. I have also been creating data notebooks which I will post about when they are finished :) I'm super excited for how they are coming along. 

And.... you can't forget it is summer. We took a break the other day to take the boys to the dog park and out for ice cream. They loved it. 

Yesterday, the hubby and I drove to Siesta Key to spend a day on the beach. It was beyond beautiful there. I can't wait to go back!!!! 

Lastly, just because I didn't show it off sooner.... y'all know how obsessed I am with my fur babies. My mom was shopping the other day and stumbled upon this shirt and just knew I had to have it. So she bought it for me and mailed it down. I {LOVE} IT! Apparently so does Quinn. 

Link up HERE and share all about your week! Are you getting ready to go back soon?
