Five for Friday ON FRIDAY!

Hello, friends!  It's been a LONG time since I've actually posted a Five for Friday post ON Friday!  Yay, me!  Here's a peek at what was going on in my world this week!

SNOW!  Snow and frigid temps happened this week!  We had 4 snow days in a row with a weekend in the middle.  My husband and I decided to venture to town to get a few things at the store before it got worse when we woke up Saturday morning.  This was what it looked like on our trip home.  Thank goodness for a big 4 wheel drive truck!

I recently signed up to be a Jamberry Nails Independent Consultant.  My consultant kit arrived on Thursday (the day before the first of the four snow days!) so I had lots of time to get acquainted with everything and get my Facebook page going.  If you haven't heard of Jamberry, you really should check it out.  I know you're all thinking "yeah, right, she just wants to sell us stuff."  No, that's not it.  I am so excited about this product that I just want you to KNOW about it!  If you love to have cute nails, but hate the chipping of regular polish, you need to try these nail wraps! That picture is of my nails on the first day I applied the wraps and after a week of wear.  Still look brand new! Check out my Facebook page to learn more!

We did finally get back to school on Thursday.  My kids were so happy to be back and to see all their friends.  This wonderful creation was built during their morning play time.  Because the kids all arrive at different times, I just let them have play time for the first 15 minutes before the bell rings and we get down to business!

We've been trying to study penguins.  It's been tough since I think we've been to school all of 11 days in January due to weather and some of those days were 2 hour delays!  Today, my kids built CVC words with magnet letters.  This activity came from Caitlin over at Kindergarten Smile's awesome penguin unit.  You can find it HERE!

I actually got to sit down and listen to my kiddos read today!  Between all the craziness of the snow days, report card assessments, and winter benchmarking assessments, I felt like I hadn't heard them read since before Christmas!  I was so pleasantly surprised!  Look at that text that this sweet girl was working through!  That is what it's all about.  I just LOVE to hear them read!

Thanks for journeying through my week with me!  Don't forget to head over to Doodlebugs to see what everyone else did this week!  I bet there are LOTS of pictures of snow and the temps reading below zero.  Seems like the winter weather hit us all this week!
