Five for Friday

It's another fun linky party! This one is Five for Friday from Doodle Bugs Teaching. Let's see - what's five big things from this week?

1. Summer break officially started Sunday. Our last teacher workday was a Saturday. My room is packed and I'll be moving to first grade next year.

2. It has rained ALL week!! I don't think we've had a completely dry day yet. The end of the week was due to Tropical Storm Andrea but I don't know what was the culprit for the beginning of the week. I do know that I'm ready for some sunny beach weather!

3. Half of my apartment is packed and ready to go. I say half because there is still more to pack. I have about two weeks until I move, so I have time to get the rest packed up and ready to go.

4. I had a great day on Wednesday hanging out with one of my besties at work. I'm going to miss being on the same hall as her next year. Don't worry though - we've already got a plan of how to make sure we don't grow apart just because we're hallways apart. :)

5. My long distance relationship with my boyfriend (who's in the Coast Guard) officially started this week as he arrived in California. Yet another new adventure for me.

My week has been relatively slow with school being out. Part of me is enjoying the slow down that comes with summer. The other part of me is missing the keep-you-on-your-toes-excitement that comes with teaching.

Tomorrow, my best friend arrives for a week long stay. I'm sure I'll have PLENTY of things to share in the next Five for Friday!


  1. Hi Pam! I'm switching grades this year and will have to move hallways. I'm upset too because I LOVE my partner teacher this past year. We were both new last year and in the same grade, so we learned together. Our two halls are so different as far as timing that we could go weeks without seeing each other. I'm not sure what we are going to do. :(

    I'm also sick of the rain, so here is hoping for better weather! Hope your move goes well.

    Have a wonderful weekend,
    Fun In 5th

    1. I definitely know how you feel. That's how things are going to be for my friend and me! We started two years ago in second grade for our first years of teaching. We quickly learned how much we had in common. It's definitely going to be different this year.

  2. Welcome to first grade! I have been in first grade for 12 years and love it. It seems like you are going through a lot of change all at once. Good thing you seem to have a strong friend support system!

    I am a new follower!

  3. Thanks for stopping by and thanks for following! I returned the favor over at your blog. :) I'm looking forward to the change (most days). It'll be something new for me - which is part of why I like teaching - always something new. I definitely do have a great friend support system which is ever so helpful right now!!
