Spring Break 5 for Friday

It's my last day of spring break....BOO HOO!!! The week went by way too fast! Well when we get back we are in the last quarter. It's all downhill from there, right?  June 6th is right around the corner. I have such a fantastic class that I will be sad for the year to end!

Here is my Five for Friday....Spring Break edition!

#1: On Tuesday I returned from a weekend trip to St. Augustine. It's about a 4 hour drive north of me. If you have never been, and live nearby, I highly recommend a visit especially if you love history. It is a wonderful city for families or a romantic get away for couples.  When I taught 4th grade I went on MANY overnight trips there. I think about 10 years in a row. You would think by now I would never want to go again. To go there with my own kids was different though. My son is in 6th and my daughter is in 4th and she is currently studying Florida history.  I  thought this was the perfect time to take them. (I'm not into sending them on overnight school trips, but our school doesn't offer this trip anymore so I was saved.) My hubby couldn't go this trip (had to watch our dogs) so I invited my mother and my sister (also a teacher). We had a great time. I love that my kids can spend quality time with the family. It's important to me that they have those memories. Here we are visiting the landing place of Juan Ponce de Leon, the old jail, carriage ride around the city, and we took a stop at the beautiful beach (notice daughter's sassy pose! WHY?? LOL!).  It was chilly last weekend, so no swimming. We took a ghost tour and visited all the historic sites. The kids loved it!

#2: On the way home, we took a stop in Cocoa Beach. This is the place where I was born and lived until I was 8. I showed my kids the hospital I was born in and the house my parents built for us, and my elementary school from kindergarten to 2nd grade.The school has never been updated, so it really did bring back memories seeing it. 

#3: When we got home I sat on the couch ALL day on Wednesday watching movies with the hubby. We just couldn't get up and get going. I can only handle that for a day and then I need to move around! LOL!

#4: Spent time organizing TpT/blogging/FB stuff/ideas! This is really like a second full time job and, like with my life, I have to feel organized. Someone else might not think my scribblings and random thoughts are organized, but for me they are.

#5: Lastly...get ready to do some spring cleaning!! Some bloggy buddies and I are having a Spring Cleaning Sale on TpT. Check out all these FANTASTIC stores that will be on sale March 30-31. So clean out those wish list and save some money! 


  1. Sounds like you had a great week off! I love that you were able to show your kids were you went to elementary school. That is very special. It also makes them realize you were once a kid too!!

  3. We tried to go to St. Augustine one year but it was totally booked. I have heard it is a really nice place to vacation. I would LOVE to go see where Juan Ponce de Leon landed!! That's so neat!! (obviously we teach about that!)

    I love your daughter's sassy pose. My 3rd grade daughter does that all the time. My husband and I just look at each other and shake our heads. Oh my. Our hands will be full!

    It sounds like you had a great week! We still have another week before we hit spring break!!
