Y'all... this is my LAST FRIDAY OF SCHOOL!!! Next Friday I will be a FREE WOMAN for the next ten weeks (well... except for the WEEK of 9-5 Pre-AP training in July and two days of Math department curriculum mapping. But we're not talking about those right now. hahaha)
I'm linking up with Darci at The Good Life Blog and sharing another random Five on Friday.

Last week I told y'all how I was asking for NO MORE MOTHER'S DAY CARDS! EVER! :) And instead, bought books for the kids to draw their cards in on special occasions like Mother's Day, Birthdays, Christmas, etc. This way they're all together like a little time capsule! I also decided to go ahead and get books for Dave, Gibi and Haha as well.
Today I thought I'd show you my book and Gibi's book from Mother's Day!
This was Mason's page to Gibi...
... there's some randomness going on in that boys head :) I asked him to draw a picture and then after he was done asked him to tell me about what he had drawn.
Luke traced his hand, turned it into a tree and then threw in some pterodactyl bones for a nice, motherly, touch. :)
... he tried to cover up the M that should have been an M with white crayon and that's a picture of me and him next to a tree with a squirrel hole watching a fighter jet. Because, duh!
I think I'm going to trace G's hand in the books and date it as well. I am loving how they turned out!

I'm not sure I've mentioned it before, but Dave should get some MAJOR props for our morning routine. Literally, the only thing I'm responsible for pre-7:00 a.m. is getting myself ready. Dave gets up early, gets Luke up and ready, makes lunches for us and then (after Luke and I leave at 7 a.m.) gets the two little ones up, fed, dressed and to the babysitter. AND he always manages to snap some "classic" pics for me so I can see them in the mornings.

Yesterday was Field Day and Luke was PUMPED!!!
Normally it is HOT HOT HOT on Field Day and there are lots of water games. This year it was 52 degrees when we walked out the door in the morning at 7. His field day time was 8 - 10:30, so we bundled :)
Griffin hung out with me in my classroom, and Mason was obviously THRILLED to be down on the field and not participating (sidenote: he's wearing a special "Mason Badge" that the receptionist made just for him. He totally has her wrapped around his little finger. hahaha)
While the boys were on the field, G hung out with my 8th Grade Algebra class. She got passed around and ooohed and aaahed over for a solid 30 minutes :)
As Dave was leaving to take the kids to the sitter, Mrs. Boese pulled them into her classroom so Mason could see the new chicks that were born THAT MORNING!!! I'm so glad that one of my students came and got me so I could come see Mason loving on the baby chicks :)
