Five for Friday--This week went FAST!

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs again for Five for Friday!  I look forward to Fridays even more now because of this linky!  I can't wait to see what everyone has been up to each week!
Here's what's been going on in my world . . .
1.  All soccer, all the time
Both of my kids are playing in a Spring soccer league and my husband is coaching my son's team so it seems like all we do is run to soccer practice!  The picture above is from Saturday's game.  Yes, those are snowflakes you see in the picture.  That's my daughter dressed like the abominable snowman to play soccer. Gotta love April in Ohio. Tomorrow, we have two games again and it's supposed to be 70 and sunny!  Yay!
2.  Name Collection Flowers
We made name collection flowers this week to brighten up our hallway.  Does anyone else have a building as old as mine?  Doesn't that hallway scream 1950s??  I got this awesome activity HERE from Miss Kindergarten.  They turned out great!
3.  Brain Breaks
My kiddos LOVE singing and dancing along to songs on the SMARTboard.  I'm a big fan of the Harry Kindergarten videos on YouTube.  I try to squeeze in one of these videos between each of our Daily 5 rotations.
4.  Hat Day!
We are doing an ABC Countdown to Summer and today was Hat Day for letter H.  I was sporting a pretty awesome sparkly light-up fedora!  You can't truly appreciate it from this picture, but it is indeed flashing around the brim!
AND, most importantly . . . .
That's fabulous sun shining on even more fabulously freshly colored hair!  That's right.  I got to spend 90 quality minutes with my awesome hairdresser with NO children and nothing but girl talk.  And as a bonus, while we chatted, she washed that gray right outta my hair!  What a way to start the weekend!
So, there's my Five for Friday!  Another busy weekend is on tap for us, but I hope to find some time to go through all the awesome products I got from the fundraiser for the West, Texas teachers that was put on by Chrystal at Kreative in Kinder!  It was like Christmas morning this morning while I waited for that file to download!  Can't wait to start planning and printing and laminating!  Happy weekend everyone!  Go HERE to link up!

  3. I'm going to try the collection flowers! It seems a little advanced for some of my kiddos but I'll have to check out the directions! Cute blog! I am a new follower!

    1. I put the numbers on them ahead of time with specific kids in mind. The ones that I knew would have a more difficult time got low numbers and my smarty pants kiddos got the higher numbers!

  4. Lisa, your hair looks great! Love the blog! Going to need you to help me when I start mine again!

    1. Thanks! I'm really having fun. I'm looking forward to summer when I'll have more time to make some products! I'll gladly help you if I can!
