High Five Friday No. 7

Week of the crazy kids.
Really.

It's Friday which means its time to look back and see what the high points of this week were. I really started thinking about high 5 friday. At first, ill be honest, it was totally about the link up the exposure. Now, its now MUCH more about looking back at these weeks that are going by so FAST and remembering
 the little things,
 the things that are fleeting,
the small things.

Soo… linking up with lauren @ from my grey desk


5. Middle School Boys.
Really. They CRACK ME UP.
I walked in my classroom after lunch to have a pink "sweet thing" sugar packet thrown at me and a group of boys telling me that they found my name tag.
I promptly told them to sit down and start their warm up… while I stepped out side and DIED laughing.

I really hope they step up their game before high school.


4. Sleepy Time Tea.
Seriously LOVE this stuff. This week I felt a little "something something" coming on and after downing a handful of vitamin C, 80 Advil, and a cup of this miracle I slept for 10 hours and woke up practically cured… except for my man voice!


3. Benchmark Testing.
This is the TX version of pre-state testing… as a first year teacher this is SUPERRRR nerve racking. It's a high point because it is a HUGE marker in time it means that I am really almost done with my first group of kiddos. kinda sad.
(PS PLEASE PRAY FOR MY KIDS, they are taking their writing test next week and I really like my job…)

2. Mascara.
I found the best mascara in the world.
seriously.
YES, this is definitely a high point.
come on you know I am right.

1. pick me ups.
One of my sweet sweet girls slipped this into my hand on monday morning.

JUST WHEN I NEEDED IT.
just when I felt like I couldn't do it any more.
Just as I wanted to hang some 12 year old up by their toe nails.
I got a pick me up.
Thank-you-jesus-for-knowing-what-you-are-doing.

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!
I hope you remember your little things!

Seriously over here DYINGGG about the sugar packet. Hahaha.
Maybe I should consider teaching middle school instead of elementary ;)

I love sleepy time tea, too - my grandma got me some for my Keurig and it's so yummy!

Happy Friday & thanks for my birthday Twitter shout out - made my morning :)

I found your blog through #FF. I taught for 7 years and now I am a soon-to-be SAHM. I remember my first year. It was kindergarten and the stories are endless. Love the "Sweet Thing"! The last year I taught was 5th grade.

PS-Benchmark testing is nerve wracking. I'm in Texas also...

Isn't middle school the greatest? My first year teaching, I overheard some boys talk about "the hot new lady PE teacher." I don't know who was more mortified, me or them when they realized I had heard.

I'd have to say that life is never dull when you hang out with middle schoolers all day. These weeks are definitely going by quickly. January is already more than half over! Enjoy your weekend.
