Five for Friday: April 26, 2013

We made it.  It's Friday!
Not only does that mean a little break, it also means time for Doodle Bugs Teaching's Five for Friday!

I'll start the count with some class goings on.
Number 1 is Earth Day.  On Monday we did a little Earth Day writing craftivity.  We started by brainstorming a list of ways to help the Earth.  My sweeties came up with some fabulous ideas.  Then they completed the project.  They turned out really cute. If you would like a free copy of this activity, you can click on the picture.
Number 2 is field trip fun.  We went on our last field trip of the year to a local animal park.  The kids had a wonderful time.  Since it is spring there were lots of adorable babies.  I really had to stop myself from putting this little baby pig in my jacket pocket.  It was born only hours before we arrived.  So cute!
Number 3 puts a large lump in my throat, count down to kindergarten.  I can not believe the time is almost here.   A  is ready but I am not.  In my mind she is still a little baby.  Time marchs on and I better get in step.
Number 4 is new sandals.  My friend had a pair of Sseko sandals on the other day.  Of course a discussion ensued.  They are sandals that have interchangable ribbons that you can tie in all different configurations.  Cool right?  Even better the company that makes them is a fair trade organization based in Uganda and commited to helping the women of that country.  After checking them out for myself, I had to order a pair.  You can take a look by clicking on the picture below.
Number 5  is my favorite dress of the season.  J. Crew's factory site has this sweet little dress in solid colors and in this polka dot print.  I think it is simple enough to live on for many springs to come.  It is one of those styles I will want in every color.
Thanks for reading and have a great weekend.
