Happy Friday, Friends!!! If you see me today and I'm extra happy it's because it is a teeny tiny bit cooler thanks to a storm that came through last night and I'll take whatever I can get at this point.
As always, Erika, Narci and I are sharing our Friday Favorites... so grab our graphic below, link back to one (or all!) of us and share your FAVORITES!!!
First up, in honor of it being September... is this tea towel not the cutest thing you've ever seen?!?! It's $16 and according to the review online the words are actually stitched instead of printed! It should be at my house next week so I'll update y'all :) I have a feeling it will be a FAVORITE.
And if you're ordering the towel, you may want to add a couple of THESE to your online cart? I know Christmas is FOREVER away, but I think that these would be the most precious teacher gifts! You could roll a tea towel up, tie it with a pretty ribbon and have it stick out the top, fill it with homemade treats, pop a gift card in it OR do one of those sweet little mini Christmas trees in it! Anyway, I always like to think ahead and I think that these are so fun!
I've mentioned before that I work with THE BEST teachers EVER and it's true! We laugh so hard every single day! Our principal wasn't on campus yesterday and so we piled into (and onto) Sharon's Jeep and sent him the pic below...
... we send him goofy pictures whenever he's off campus, but this was one of my FAVORITES. We've taken the golf cart down to the baseball field and and taken pictures out on the field, sent him a picture of all of us at the playground, being "fake apprehended" by the school police officer, we've all pretended to be asleep at our desks and MANY others. I told y'all we have a good time!
This picture is my FAVORITE from the week. Maybe ever.
I'm not sure if this is funny if you're not a teacher... but just in case :)
On my way to lunch yesterday I ran into Luke and Lincoln taking their class cart back to the classroom. These two cuties are some of my FAVORITES even if they were a hot, sweaty mess. Luke gave me a HUGE hug and then wiped his sweaty head on my shirt. Thanks, son. :)
Luke is SOOOO into our school's accelerated reader program. He had me looking up books from his class's "chat and chew" program to see what their point value was and I laughed SO HARD because my phone auto-corrected tall to y'all :) #youmightliveintexasif
Mason had his first soccer practice of the season last night and while it only lasted about 5 minutes (BOO, storm!) he and his FAVORITE friend made the most of it :)
Cutest little team!
And this girl had a great time watching the big girls play volleyball. I was NOT into sports in school and I hope that she gives them a try.
Swinging is GG's FAVORITE!!!
And while this isn't the best picture of the kids look at that RAIN in the background!!! Crazy, right?
We just got a Circle in our house and I am LOVING it! My parents picked it up for us and it's seriously the coolest thing ever. I'll blog more about it after we've had it for a while and I feel a little more prepared to give a full review, but after a few days I can tell you IT IS AWESOME!!! It's this device that you hook up to your WiFi and then you can add devices connected to your WiFi to people's profiles and set limits, monitor time, apply filters, etc.
You can select an age range (preschool, kid, teen, etc.) and then select/deselect apps and websites that you do/don't want them to have access to. It's great because you can link multiple devices to one account... so Luke's kindle and our laptop are linked to his profile and the time, etc. is cumulative.
And that pause button on the bottom??? You can pause individual profile's access to WiFi :)
So when I ask him to bring his laundry hamper downstairs and he pretends like he can't hear me I can hit pause and then all of a sudden his hearing is perfect ;) I also love that I can monitor exactly what apps and websites he's using his time playing.
Last night Mason set up flashlights on our stairs, turned off the lights and busted some SERIOUS moves out in the front hall. His dance parties are my FAVORITE!
Y'all know I love a good side-by-side comparison picture and so when I saw these on Facebook yesterday I knew I had to share them as a FAVORITE.
This little dancer is my FAVORITE!
Luke has had his nose in a book CONSTANTLY since school started thanks to accelerated reader. He's moving on from Captain Underpants and expanding his horizon to other books and series :)
His teacher hosts a monthly book club, so I ordered those for him and then grabbed a few that I thought he'd love as well. I'll keep you posted on his FAVORITES in case you have a kid around the same age.
Already starting on the stack :)
If you have a great book recommendation for him leave it in the comments!!!
I hope y'all have a FANTASTIC long weekend planned! We have nothing on the books except for lots of time at home together and getting a few things ready for a shower I'm hosting next weekend.
I'm not sure whether I'll be blogging on Monday or not, but I'll for sure be back on Tuesday because it's Show and Tell Tuesday and we're going to share three things we can't live without!
Happy (almost) weekend, friends!
