Labor Day Labor and Fun Friday with a little of Currently

Wow!  Everyone at my house is working today.  Labor Day means:
1.  Clean your room.
2.  Grade papers.
3.  Make lesson plans.
4.  Get creative for #4!
5.  Hubby's home - in the garage doing some project or another.
6.  Wash the PILES of laundry!
7.  Go to the grocery store - and this time, I mean it!
8.  Catch up on blogging - I can't believe I've left you in the dark for a week.
9.  Honor the holiday by staying in pajamas until the grocery store.
10.  Vacuum...ugh!

Seriously, when I was pregnant, my due date was Labor Day, and I thought it was hilarious that I might be in labor on Labor Day.  I had a c-section, instead, on August 26 last year, make that ten years ago - how did my baby get so old?

Two weeks in, and I'm so happy for a four day week, I think we should all take a vote and make them all four days.  Don't know about you, but my kids are DONE on Fridays anyway.  That's why I'm linking up with Kelly at www.teachingfourth.blogspot.com for Fun Fridays!

We've had Fun Fridays for as long as I can remember, even during my student teaching.  This week, we have been talking about friendship and classroom family, as a prelude to a unit on families in reading and social studies.  We've read:
Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon A Rainbow of Friends Product Details this week, and made sunflowers with Molly Lou, rainbows with our friends, and for "Fun Friday", we started making friendship bracelets.  Good Grief, Charlie Brown!  I was in the 7th grade the last time I made one of those!  Wait?  Did I just say that out loud?  That makes me OLD!!!

Since it's Labor Day, and all, I thought I'd finally join Farley from www.ohboy3rdgrade.blogspot.com for Currently, too; however, I have NO idea how to type in the cute box she has set up, as a fellow blogger pointed out for me (thank you!).  So:
Listening to:  It's Fun Baby (by me, to Call Me Maybe)
Loving:  Crazy Milktop Girl Font, by Kevin and Amanda
Thinking:  We should have four day weeks every week
Wanting:  to be at the lake
Needing:  groceries...ugh!
Favorite Things:  Hubby being home, my sweet girls, my new second graders, and my new iPad
Happy Labor Day!

  3. Hi! Welcome to the blog world! If you copy and paste the currently picture into a program (I like powerpoint) then you can add your text and then save it as a JPEG and add it as a photo! :) I had to learn a lot as I went!! Congrats on the blog and I'd love for you to stop by mine!
