5 for Friday in Disney World

Time to link up for 5 for Friday!

We got annual passes to Disney!!! So this was my little girls first trip to Disney and she loved every moment!

Then we went to Epcot for the day! My dad LOVED this place. So it was awesome to bring my girl here!

My hubby takes us once a month for family pedis!

We have been trying to eat better and I have been doing a pretty great job! Yes that is asparagus and chicken skewers!

Due to all the fun last weekend I didn't get a giveaway up. So this week is a double giveaway! Hop over to my facebook page by clicking on the picture! All you have to do is tag a friend then Sunday evening I will draw a winner.

Giveaway & Halloween

After a super vacation to Mexico I was super happy to be back with my little miss! So we had brunch at Sweet Pete's which is pretty close to Willy Wonka's cafe!

My little miss LOVES her time with her daddy! They carve a pumpkin every year.

What a difference a year makes.

How adorable is this little giraffe? I love the pottery barn costumes.

What cute neighbors!

Make sure you follow our facebook page to catch our weekend giveaways!

Hurricane Matthew Recovery

Every other Friday we have Food Trucks that come to our neighborhood, which can be a life saver since we also have soccer practice on Fridays! Do you like food trucks? This was probably the best EVER! That wrap was amazing!

On Saturday myself and my little headed downtown to see how our little city is healing from hurricane Matthew. We had lunch at Cafe Alcazar which use to be the largest indoor pool! Then we had a bunch of sweets! Kilwin's Chocolates & Hyppo popsicles.

The little missy was thrilled that we got family pedis!

We now live in the same town as my aunt! So she loves to help make memories with my little! 

Over on our Facebook page we are working to do a weekly giveaway! All you have to do is like and tag a friend in the post. This week we are giving away our Fall ELA set. Tons of centers as well as great printables! Hope you are all having a great week! Click the picture or head here:

Hurricane Matthew

Time to link up for 5 for Friday! I am actually reaching back to the last 8-9 days not just this week.

Our big news has been hurricane Matthew! Here were my preparations. My daughter said mentos were very important to have! And these are my new first pair of rain boots!
In St. Augustine FL we had the nor'easter move through and bring tons of rain before Matthew hit us. So knowing we would be stuck inside for awhile every time the rain stopped all the kids would run outside! Once we lost power my hubby cooked for us in the garage on the grill!

We were luckily spared any major damage. But our historic downtown area was hit really hard. This is a before and after picture of one of my favorite streets in town. Also my mom whom blogs here with me lives on Hilton Head. They are still right in the middle of clean up. She evacuated and was away from her house for a week. They were also very lucky and didn't sustain any major damage, but her community did! So please pray for all effected by Matthew!

In my attempt to reclaim normal I got on my elliptical on my lanai. Well I guess this little guy was taking refuge in my elliptical pedal.

After all the craziness and daddy working out of town for the night this is how I found the little one when I went to bed. She is all the way across the center. Anyone else let the littles sleep with them?

Just had to share this book. My daughter still loves it! A very dear friend bought it for her 2nd birthday and we still keep it in the regular rotation! If you don't have it go get it now!!

Hoping things can be calm and boring for awhile around here!

Pick 3 Pinterest

Hey friends! I was totally obsessed with Pinterest when if first came out. Then so many other things started coming! Facebook got bigger, add twitter, Instagram, and periscope I could barely keep up! But I have reconnected to my Pinterest roots and I am loving it! So I am linking up to share some of the best pins I have found on Pinterest recently! Hopefully you can use some of them in your class! 
Make sure you read all the way to the bottom so you can click the links to see the amazing things everyone else found on Pinterest this month! 

 Click on picture to go to original pin
Videos are a fact of life now! But they really can be beneficial to teaching and reinforcing skills. 

I know that some of you have already been back in school awhile but others are just starting. But this was great for how to organize all those school supplies! 

Thought this was a cute poem to share about Labor Day! Hope you can use some of these! Make sure you go check out everyone that has linked up!!

5 for Friday FOOTBALL

Just in case you wanted to know what I have been up to lately here is a little peek! 
We got to go meet up with my parents at the Jacksonville football game! Yes I really do love football.
Our little lady has started her soccer season! How cute is her practice uniform? Love those bright socks!
Big news at recess! She lost that front tooth! More power to the teacher that helped her pull it out! I don't do loose teeth not even for my own kids!
My neighbor & I got to go listen to Lysa Terkeurst speak at a local church. She was awesome! I would go again!
I spent a little time working on these Labor Day items! 

Then we went back to another Jags game! This time one of the hubby's college buddies is a coach and got us sideline passes. Fun times!

Back to School

My little one headed off to kindergarten this week! She was so excited and so ready! I am so happy for her. Sending these little people off unto the world is filled with mixed emotions. But so far she is LOVING school! 

Our school district has what they call a staggered start. This is amazing especially from the teacher perspective! Each teacher only has 6 kindergartners per day for the first 3 days then they all return on the 4th day! What a great time to build community and make them feel comfortable! So on day 2 we headed to the beach!! 

Now that my little lady is at school all day it has given me time to finally really work again! So you can grab this Olympic color packet for just $1!! There are color by sight word and color my number pages!

I also got a chance to spruce up our Close Reading on Labor Day. It includes a color passage to project for the class, student passages to make notes on, alphabetical order page with vocabulary from the passage, vocabulary cards with pictures, writing paper, and a label the dates on the month page! 

And finally this is my little lady preparing us a snack! She said mommy I just want to spend time with you! Melt my heart! So we played all night in her play room! 

So overall a pretty good week!
