5 for Friday Catch-Up

Somehow I have gone almost an entire month without did that happen?

Are you busy busy like me trying to keep on top of things?  I look back over this month and there have been some good things happening that I would like to share and probably a couple I would like to forget.  Here are 5 pictures to show you a few of my happy memories of the month.

 My husband first surprised me by suggesting we buy a new car for me (okay...not new, but new to me).  My old refusing to die car was becoming unreliable even around town.  And then he ordered these new license plates which he put on just yesterday when he went to do all the registration stuff for me.  I LOVE that man!

Here we are on our get away weekend to Stanley Lake, Idaho.  It was a little smokey the day we went, but we had a great time and vowed to stay longer the next trip (we spent too much time in Twin Falls shopping for the above vehicle).

 I am loving my classroom this year.  And this is one reason why.....the view.  Can you see the trees?  My room looks out onto the outdoor ed area of my school.  I LOVE it!  Trees, weather rolling in from the west, bird feeders, quiet....I just love my view.  It makes me happy every day.

This year the apple blossoms froze, but we have tons of pears.  We went out and picked them last week (or we picked some of them).  

We looked at the skin, core, stem, and seeds.  Then we made pear sauce.  I was a little disappointed about not having any apples as we moved into Johnny Appleseed mode.  But my grocery store provided plenty.

We had a switch around day on Friday.  All the kindergarten classes do one activity and the classes switch every 30 minutes.  It is fun for us to get to know all the kiddos and fun and different for them too, as they get to be in each of our classrooms.  In my room we tasted apples, picked a favorite, and graphed them by painting the apples.  I did the same activity last year (you can read about it here), but this year I had 5 of my moms come and help me and they were awesome!!  I cannot thank them enough.  I got so caught up in the day I kept forgetting to take pictures.  Here is a couple of the finished graphs.

Thanks to Deanna Jump and Fran Kramer for all their apple fun (we will be continuing next week).

In honor of apple week, fall, and the fact that I am having so much fun making new missing addend themed recording's my latest apple one.  Just for you!

Here's to a great week!  I am so excited to be linking up with Doodle Bugs again!!  Happy September...almost gone, bring on fall.
