High Five Friday No. 8

So this week was the opposite of last week. 
Last week… too long
This week… already over?? 

time is weird. 

but none the less HAPPY FIRDAY!! 
To celebrate I am linking up with the lovely lauren from my grey desk for another installment of High Five Friday! 

5. Hubble and Husdon!
 
So until I live in Houston Hubble and Hudson will ALWAY make the "high" list. 
This is by the the BEST grocery store in the entire world… and let me tell you I am somewhat of an expert. I literally could spend HOURS in this store exploring exotic flavors and dreaming of my pintrest worthy kitchen! 

4. Voice. 
I have been REALLY REALLY sick this past weekend/week. I have had absolutely 
NO VOICE ( please keep in mind I am a teacher). I never knew how valuable my voice was until it was magically gone! Thankfully I am finally feeling better and no one got hit with my flying expo markers when no one was listening to me! 

3. Kitchen Miracles. 
 I had absolutely NO motivation to trek the the grocery store. So just like the whole Fish and Loaves thing Jesus preformed a miracle in my kitchen and allowed 4 dinners and 4 lunches out of practically NOTHING. Hallelujah, amen, Praise the Lord. 

2. Neon Expo markers. 
My mom sent me a care package in the mail that included 2 packages of neon expo markers. They are truly the coolest things in my classroom. I SWEAR the kids actually read what is on the bored because it is in neon! Thanks mom YOU ROCK!! 

1. Brownies. 
I pride myself on being pretty even tempered in the classroom. 
Confession: I LOST it on tuesday. L-O-S-T it. One class period imparticular was just HORRIBLE. 
The next day I was fully prepared to apologize and speak calmly about their behavior BUT when I got to school 3 of the girls in that class were waiting outside my classroom with a pan of brownies and an apology for their behavior. 
I will never forget that moment.  



Thanks again Lauren!!

I hope you have a wonderful Friday!

It's moments like the girls outside of your classroom that remind you why you do what you do! I loved those moments as a teacher.

found your blog from high five friday. That is awesome that your students brought you brownies! It is so hard to be patient all the time - sometimes I think they need to know that you can't always be patient! I want my students to bring me some sweets. : )
