5 for Friday!

This week has simultaneously gone by super fast and really slow for me.  I always hit a point during the summer when I am sick of being at home and I start to go stir-crazy.  I think I hit it yesterday - my husband just looked at me and I knew.  Stir-crazy!

I just need to be busy!

But since it's Friday - I can link up with Doodle Bugs 5 for Friday!  Hooray!

1.  Legoland!

Tomorrow we are going to Legoland to celebrate Father's Day for my husband.  It's Star Wars day and if you knew Mr. Life in Middle School, well... it's a good present.  This is the man who pouted that we missed the life sized replica of an X-Wing in Times Square when we visited NY in March.  They unveiled it in May.  He was quite upset.  We've never been to Legoland so it will be interesting!

2.  A Boy and his Dog

I also spent the majority of my week watching my son and our new rescue dog, Natalie, play in our backyard.  My mom runs a rescue group in our area and both of our dogs are rescues from her.  Bailey is a small dog and my son really can't play with her too much.  When Natalie came in the house, it was perfect because they play all day.  Until...  my son tries to ride Natalie like a pony, or when she knocks him over.
"Mommy, Natalie is mean!"  or "Natalie kicked me!"  

Oh yeah, you obviously hate each other.

3.  Goal Pennant
I made this on Wednesday.  Was it Wednesday?  I never know what day it is when I'm not at work.  All I know is that it's June.  It's free at TPT!  Download it!  Follow me!

4.  Interactive Student Notebook

I'm still working at making some foldables that will go into my Interactive Student Notebook.  I've got Parts of Speech and Types of Sentences so far.  If only I could stay off of Pinterest long enough to really get work done, but I figure anything I do in June puts me ahead of the game!

5.  Hunger Games

So, I might have re-read the Hunger Games trilogy this week.

Technically, it was for work... but not really!  I just really enjoy that first book the most, then can't help myself from reading the rest.  The third book though...  Mockingjay...  should have been split into two books because I felt like the author tried to cram too much into her third "act."

That was my week!  How was yours?!  Don't forget to link up over at Doodle Bugs Teaching!
