Time to focus on something less depressing, like five random things that make me smile. Welcome to Doodle Bugs Teaching's Five for Friday!
Number 2 is Sparkling Ice Coconut Pineapple Water. It is fizzy. It is sweet. It is y u m ! There are several different flavor choices if coconut pineapple is not for you.
Number 3 is J. Crew's new Perfect Shirt in citrus print. J. Crew's quality is always spot on and I really like the print on this shirt. Did you know they even give teachers a 15% discount in stores (not online) if you bring in a valid school ID?
Number 4 is a little preview field trip. We stayed in town for spring break this year. So we had to keep ourselves busy with some local activities. We swam at my club, went to the park, and had lunch with some friends. D took a day off from work and we went to a little ranch. We are taking our first graders there in a few weeks and I wanted to check it out. There was a drive through safari where we got to feed the animals. We had a really fun time. The zebra in the pic even had a baby with her. I hope our field trip goes as well.
Number 5 is something every parent (or potential parent) of a young child should know about, American Innovative's Teach Me Time Talking Alarm Clock. My sweet little A would be up at 4:45 a.m. every morning if it wasn't for this great little clock. You set a time for it to come on as a nightlight. Then you set another time for it to change from a yellow glowing light to a green glow. Green means go. A can get up if the light is green. If she wakes up at any point and the light is still yellow, she has to stay in bed and try to go back to sleep because it is not time to get up yet. This clock is genius.
So there it is, my first Five for Friday. Thanks for reading and have a great evening.
