Five for Friday

1. My classroom is not yet ready for me to get into, so I went to help one of my best friends get her room ready yesterday. Her classroom has a camping theme (SO CUTE!), so I made a tree out of butcher paper, sorted through her pencil holders that are made out of tree limbs, cleaned out under the sink (yuck!), and organized her library. It's hard to tell other people what you need done in your classroom since you have certain expectations, so it's great to have teacher friends who understand your need for perfection. It made me really excited to get back into my own classroom! I hope it's ready soon!

2. We had a Hawaiian themed couples' small group last night. The idea stemmed from my husband's collection of Hawaiian shirts (WHY?).

3. I went to one of my former student's swim meets and took the pup. (She is one of those students that you wish you could have 20 of in your classroom! So precious and so helpful!)

4. We went to the lake with my dad and sister, their two dogs, and our pup. The older dogs were so annoyed with Neely. She did not understand that they did not want to play constantly.

5. I FINALLY started a facebook page for my "store." Please check it out if you are interested! I have a feeling it will take a while to gain "likers," but this whole process is a slow one... So I will be patient!


  1. Hello Delaney! I recognized your store name on the Five for Friday linky right away because we just recently connected on Instagram. :) I don't have a personal Facebook account, but I do have a business Facebook page, a.k.a. Diary of a Grumpy Teacher. I "liked" your FB page, but I don't think it showed up...

    Love the Hawaiian-themed party as an ode to your husband's collection of Hawaiian shirts!

    1. I liked your facebook page! I don't know why it didn't allow you to like mine! Do you have any idea what I might have done wrong?!

  2. How kind of you to help your friend set up her classroom! The camping theme sounds great - they are on my to do list this year to get some things done, I love the whole camping theme! Sounds like you've had a great week - your Facebook page looks great!

  3. Your are so sweet to help your friend! Me and my teacher friends always do that in the summer too. It is always nice to have a different set of teacher eyes that doesn't see your room everyday! Love that you started a facebook page, I will check it out!
