Five for Friday July 11, 2014

 I'm joining Doodle Bugs Teaching for her weekly linky party Five for Friday. It is summer and most of my five have nothing to do with school.

Delaney and I took a mini vacation to Texas. We went to Six Flags on Monday. We had a good time, but it was very hot. I was never so glad to get to my sister's house so I could take a bath!

On Tuesday, my niece and her two boys came over. I seriously think Delaney would have chosen spending time with them over going to Six Flags. Don't they look like fun?

We went shopping at Grapevine Mills Mall. I gave Delaney some money to buy school clothes while we were there. It was amazing how tight she was with the money when it was coming out of her purse! hahaha  I'll have to try that out again.  ;)
I like going to Texas to see my sister and her family, but I absolutely hate driving in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. I would hate having to drive in that traffic all of the time. The other problem is there is constant road work so even if you are using your GPS, you end up on the wrong interstate...well at least I do. It didn't help that my person in charge of checking the GPS was an 11 year old who was trying to look at all of her purchases! I somehow ended up driving through the airport and had to pay $2.00 to get out. We almost ended up going through the airport from the other direction when I realized I was close to my niece's house so we stopped there so I could  regain my composer and try to figure out how to get out of there! I may sound overly dramatic but after driving around down there a day or two, I seriously always appreciate coming back to Oklahoma!!!

 I spent most of Thursday going through files, shelves, cabinets,etc... to get rid of some of my first grade stuff. I feel bad looking at all of the paper and ink I wasted printing things that I can't use anymore. but 1) we do recycle and 2) I am making up some backpacks of things for a couple of homeschooling moms at church. I still have a lot to go through, I am hoping if I keep working I will finish it on Saturday.

Well that's it, I didn't go to Las Vegas, but I did have a great week!

Pin It!


  1. My mother in law live in Oklahoma and has told us we need to come down and go to Six Flags, it looks like a lot of fun and like you guys had a blast! It is also really great you are helping out homeschool mom's. I think it is awesome to get to share what we do with people.

  2. I feel your pain of GPS. I managed to get lost in my the city next to my hometown. Thankfully though I didn't have to pay $2 to get out.

  3. Happy hot times in Texas. Nice cape, by the way! :)

  4. Your description of driving has made me chuckle...I haven't done that, but it could have been me. Glad you had fun while you were there, though. Have a happy weekend!

  5. Same thing happened to us in Tulsa. I was like - there's my road right there! But I couldn't get over to it because of construction.
    Yeah for you for going through stuff - sometimes we teachers are such hoarders.
