Five for Friday!

Hi teacher friends!  I'm linking up with Doodlebugs Teaching to share five things from my week with you!

1.) We are back from Disney World and I have Disney fever.  We had an amazing time, despite the intense heat.  And I want to go back. Like right now :-(  I've priced out half a dozen imaginary vacations (any other crazies do that???)...but my husband is not as enthusiastic as I am. Boo!

Leah at Beaches and Cream.  You are adorable if you think she ate that ice cream.  She was just happy to have it in front of her!

We stayed at Animal Kingdom!  We saw animals!

 By the end of the week, Jacob was calling Mickey "the boss."

Minnie is Leah's FAVORITE!

2.) We've been spending a lot of time at the pool.  We have a great county pool nearby. It has a kids training pool that's only 2 feet of water, perfect for a two year old.  There is also a fun spray area with water cannons and waterfalls.  (No pics because they aren't allowed!)  We are actually in a great routine of lazy morning, pool, gym, afternoon coffee (just me, not the littles).  I am really loving summer!

3.) Speaking of the gym, I just got serious about training for my fall races.  I'm running three half marathons, although the first two are really training runs for the big one:

I'm running the Philadelphia Half Marathon for the second time! I had a great experience here in 2011!
Any readers from Philly want to give me Center City food recommendations? I like pizza the night before races, but the meal after the race can be anything!

4.) Confession: I haven't been thinking about my classroom.  We aren't allowed back until the week of the 26th anyway, so I haven't really thought too much about my room configuration much.  I don't plan on changing too much since I liked my classroom last, but I will have a LOT more kids than I did last year.  In 2013-2014 I had 18 - a perfect number for upper elementary.  Next year I have 26.  Yikes.  That's a lot more paperwork than 18!

5.) Have you heard about the Back to School Sale on TpT? I'm sure you have :-)  My entire store, bundles and already discounted items will be on sale August 4th and 5th.  Don't forget to use the promo code!

Have a great weekend! And tell me about Center City food I shouldn't miss!  Or tell me about Disney resorts you've loved :-)

  1. You are so brave running so many long races! I thought for a split second about signing up for a half the other day, then decided I'd gone crazy from being off all summer. :)
    Best of luck with your training!
