Five for Friday {#ABCsofTeaching, Periscope, and More}

Happy Fri-YAY! Once again joining the adorable Kacey from, Doodle Bugs Teaching, for this week's five for FRIDAY!

I was really looking at my store this week and a little embarrassed when I sorted my store by 'most recent' and went to the end of the list! Let's just say we were a little blank, boring, and not so professional looking. That is NOT what I want people to associate me with and that is why I am on an update mission!

July Currently

It's the first of the month and that means...
I'm joining Farley for her currently link up!


Those blocks! She loves them. She loves to carry them around. She loves to bang them into everything. EEEEEEEK! At least it's better than her grinding her 3 teeth together. UGH!


All of the instagramers that already linked up for the #photoaday challenge using the hashtag #ABCsofTeaching! I love getting to know other educators and their world!

Check out a few here:


July. That's all I have to say about that. WOW!


To restart summer break! It's crazy how fast it goes! And have I mentioned all the rain?! What the WHAT! It's raining. and raining. and raining! I don't live in the rainforest!


Need I explain more?? Just close your eyes... imagine a tropical sunset, cool crisp water, and the taste  of pineapple on your lips. Oh wait, I'm in the middle of this Ohio mud pit. Forget it. humphhhhh!


When it comes to catching things on film (hahaha film) I'm an All-Star! That's what happens when your camera or phone is constantly in your hand and pointed at something, right???

Five for Friday: {Chapter 8 Closed}

Joining the amazing Kacey for her weekly linky!
There's definitely plenty to write about this week, so I hope to see you at the bottom of this post in an hour or two.... ;) I'm only half kidding!

We started off the week finishing up our End of Year Memory Books! They match the ones that we completed WAY BACK at the beginning of the year for our Back to School Activity Books, so it was great to sit them side by side and compare the changes and growth they have made over their kindergarten year. I'm not sure who liked them more, the students or their parents. 

After wrapping up all of our work, assessments, and what felt like millions of practices, we held our graduation ceremony this Monday! It was my 6th graduation ceremony and this sweet partner's first! Everything was amazing and once the kiddos were finished a huge weight was lifted.... but the year wasn't over just yet!

Tuesday was field day!!! Mrs. Murray and I were on the planning committee and once again once it was over, ANOTHER huge weight was lifted. Don't get me wrong. The day was a blast! It was full of soaking each other, running, laughing, and just having a ton of fun!

Once all the fun was over, it was time to clean and take everything down. Looks depressing huh?? I don't think my husbands loves that his wife is a teacher in June and August. It's all like the dreaded moving day that everyone is strangely busy for. You know what I'm talking about right?? He's helped me through 2 college move in days, 2 college move out days, 1 house move, and now 8 years of school move ins, and 8 school move outs. I. Owe. Him. Even if he did lock all of my stuff in a HUGE closet that I don't have the key to. Did I mention, no one has the key to it? You'll be hearing more about that in August....

And to close my week....
This beauty joined me at work all week to 'help' out. She surely loved riding up and down the hall in her coupe, while everyone else worked. 

Sidenote: I'm also thinking about opening an etsy store to sell the bows I make for this bright eyed girl. I'm struggling to find a name. Any help is greatly appreciated! We've slowly evolved from Gracelyn's Closet to Punky's Pretties to Elegance of Grace.... 
What do y'all think?
