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!
