Five For Friday

Aloha friends! I hope your short week was a good one.  It's nice to sit down and reflect on my week and share out some of my pics.  I am hooking up with Kasey for her Five for Friday linky.


The week started off great with having Monday off!  I spent the morning surfing with some friends.

It was a bit windy and chilly, but any time I can get on my surfboard makes me happy.



I also had some time on Monday to finish some projects I have been working on.

I have been working on these for awhile.  I am very particular about what I think looks good, so it takes me a long time to get a collection together that I like.  

So with my new frames done, I was inspired to use them to create some new literacy centers for spring.
These are called Sunshine and Rainbows!! I have a thing for rainbows :)


On Thursday I woke up with a cold :(  It has been rainy and chilly which has not helped.
Yesterday and today the kids have been stuck inside for recess.

I took this as I was leaving today from my classroom.  You can't see the raindrops
but it was coming down.



The best part about today was that we had a school assembly this afternoon.  After being stuck inside all the day and not feeling well, I was happy to head to the cafeteria and be able to sit for an hour!

Tonight is our schools fundraiser which is an Art Auction at Waimea Valley.  It's always a fun event that raises lots of money for our school.  I am sad to miss it because I am sick.  But, the school got a preview of tonights entertainment.  

There were lots of artists who performed for the students.  It was really fun. So my last picture is really a video of my favorites, Jack Johnson and Paula Fuga:) It's not the best video, but I hope you enjoy it:)

  1. So much rain lately! My students were so antsy today. Definitely too many indoor recesses! When is the rainy season usually over? Hope you feel better soon.

  3. Hello there!
    I stumbled on your blog - and am SO glad that I did!

    Your surfing picture is awesome - I am jealous of your coordination :)

    I know what you mean about disliking indoor recess - it makes my kids antsy (not to mention whiny!) :)
