Five for Friday, um Sunday?

Ok, there's late and then there's really late.  I'm on the really late side of joining Kacey at Doodle Bugs Teaching's Five for Friday.  I kind of have a good excuse, maybe.  lol  Friday, I was just plain tired.  It was a good week back to school, but you know how that first week back to school tired is unlike almost any other.  Yesterday, my son and I attended a birthday party for my husband's great-aunt.  {Ironically, my husband didn't attend.  He was out of town.} Then, we had to come home and get the house all ready for a play date/swim date at our house today.  It was a rousing success complete with a surprise birthday cake for me from my friends.  {Today is my b-day, but I'm not saying which one.  haha}  Anyway, as my husband calls me, here is Always Late Lattin with a Five for Friday on a Sunday.

This was my to do list last Sunday.  I'm happy to say that I completed everything but the crate seats and books by the time I went to bed Sunday night.  I still don't have my books or crate seats completed, but I'm ok with that.



After school on Monday, I stopped by my favorite little cupcake place and picked up a few cupcakes.  I thought I would try some new flavors, but the strawberry ones at the top continue to be my favorite.  Is it weird that I really dislike strawberries, but I love these cupcakes?




I taught my new Kinders my magic one scrap cutting trick on the second day of school, and I have to say it was a success!  So proud of them!



My students made my First Day of School Raccoon craftivity, on the third day of school.  {There I am again, late.  haha}  I can't wait to put the feelings part on the bottom and get them out in the hallway for everyone to see!



I decided to change up my theme this year.  Well, since I am no longer doing a zebra theme, I thought it might look a tad strange to have a zebra themed alphabet up on the wall.  So, of course, I had to make a new alphabet and number cards to match my new theme.  All I can say is that I am in love.  They look great up on the wall!  {I do with the pictures looked a little better.  I'll try to get some better pics soon.}

Thanks for joining me for a super late Five for Friday!  If you are in the U.S., have a nice and relaxing Labor Day tomorrow!

Five for Friday {On a Saturday - Again}

I am excited to link up again with Doddle Bugs Teaching after many, many months of being absent from this super fun linky! {Four out the five are not teacher related, but I guess that's what happens in the summer.  ;) }

 


My son and I have been taking regular trips to our local library this summer.  There is a small art gallery right outside the entrance.  Every time we to go the library, Colton wants to sit on the benches in the gallery.  This time when we sat down, Colton wrapped his arm around me and wanted me to take a picture.  I am not a selfie person {although there is another one a little further down in this post}, but how could I say no to this cute face?



I have really enjoyed all the recent rains here in Las Vegas!  We rarely get rain, so when we do, I love just sitting on the couch listening to it.




My bestie has been coming over to do a little scrapbooking before the new school year begins.  These are the two pages that I recently completed.  {You might recognize the pics from the bottom page from here.}  I am loving my Silhouette Cameo!  It cuts so nicely, and I can make anything I want for my pages!  I am working on a birthday display for my classroom using my Cameo.  I can't wait to see how it turns out!



Last night we took our son to watch his very first baseball game.  Colton had such a great time!  He asked a lot of questions about what was going on.  He really liked his new Las Vegas 51s hat that he got!



Yesterday, I had to go into my school to change a password.  I went into my room and saw this beauty!  I can't wait to learn all the ins and outs of it.  I'm going to have to be a little creative though in order for my students to be able to reach it.  Any good ideas?

Well, that is my delayed Five for Friday!  Thanks for stopping by!
