Wow... it's been forever since I've blogged. It's been even LONGER since I've linked up for a Five For Friday with Doodle Bugs Teaching! Without further ado, here are my five (well, six, because I couldn't choose) random things from the past week or so.
1 - We have the most wonderful guidance counselor in the whole entire world. Seriously, though. If you think your school counselor is the best, you're wrong. Our counselor comes in to do character education lessons throughout the year, and this past week she read the most adorable monster book. The Monster Who Lost His Mean is about a little monster who loses the "m" in his name, so "Onster" goes around trying to do terrible things, but soon learns that it's much easier to do nice things. It's pretty cute, especially with Halloween around the corner! She finished it up by having the kids work on a page that said "_________ will NOT be a mean monster! Instead I will..."
2 - One of our second grade teachers just got a guinea pig for her room and was talking to me about giving her guiea pig a bath. A BATH?! I googled it. Apparently it's a thing. So I gave Jelly Bean a bath... he hated every minute of it, but he was super cute.
3 - Our district sells "Pink Out" shirts every October so we can all wear them to one of the football games. Mine came with a hole in the back. No big deal. The kicker was the fact that there was an arrow pointing to the hole. It's as if some factory worker went "Hey! There's a hole in this! Let's sell it anyways!"
5 - It pays to be friends with the high school choir director. She emailed me saying there were a few extra seats on their bus trip to see Matilda on Broadway. Sign me up. It was amazing.
6 - I unofficially decided that every Thursday should be Bow Tie Thursday. My bow tie collection (only real ones, not those silly pre-tied junkers) is growing quite large! You should join me... It's a fun little thing to get you through the end of your week! If you instagram, use the hashtag #bowtiethursday!
Well, that's all folks!
