Long time no post! Five for Friday!

I can't believe it's been over a week since my last post!  I guess that blows my theory that teachers must have more time to blog in the summer!  One day keeps running into the next and frankly I don't even know what day it is!  I haven't been lounging around, that's for sure!!  I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs  Teaching to share what's been keeping me so busy!

1.  I have tons of work in the summer class that I'm taking!!  It's a 5 week course with an entire semester worth of work!!

2. My husband and I finally finished turning the office into my reading nook!  I love it!  Now I have a quiet place to read all those chapters in my text book!

3. My students LOVE to play Roll and Cover durning math stations.  I made a set for three addend addition and multiplication back in May (they're free in my TpT or TN stores).  They have a racing theme for the month of May (it's an Indiana thing).  I thought it would be fun to make a set for each month of the year so I could switch them.  One thing led to another and I made 20 sets of Roll and Cover.  There is a set for each month and a few extra!!  Well, let me just tell you... that is a lot of laminating and cutting!!  I hate to list anything in my store without showing a picture of the completed product.  As you can see I still have lots of work to do.  They may be finished by August!!  I also have a few more jar workstations in the works.

4.  I love Vistaprint!! I really love it when Groupon has their $70 for $17 deal.  My order came this week!  Here's what I got...
Here's what I forgot to proof read before I ordered...
I didn't realize that the post card had a back to it (last year's didn't)!  Now I have a quote and my school's address up in the left hand corner and it's not even aligned.  Also, my cute initial note cards have my name right at the top of the inside.  I would like to say that this is the first time that this has happened to me but it's not.  Last year I entered the wrong zip code on my business card.  You would think I would have learned my lesson to pay close attention.  Maybe next year.

5. And last but not least, the one sweet thing that keeps me very busy these days...
Moby is the most energetic dog.  He is so funny!  Yesterday on our walk he found this pacifier and carried it around like this (until he chewed it to bits)!

Well, that's what I've been up to this week.  I probably won't be back until next weekend because this is where I will be for the next few days...
Norris Lake in Tennessee!!!

Have a wonderful Fourth of July holiday!!
