Favorite Pins Friday Linky!

We missed Throwback Thursday this week, but we're making it up by joining in

We LOVE Pinterest.
Who doesn't?
So, this one is easy.
First things first...
If you're not following us on Pinterest, {HERE} we are.
You can also follow Tammy {HERE} and Christy {HERE}.

Okay, onto our favorite pins...

For Our Class...

Do your firsties arrive tying their own shoes?
If you said yes, then we're drooling...
If you said no, then we're rowing the same boat.
So, we found this... 
 This fantastic shoe table comes from 
Dr. Jean & Friends and we think it is genius.
We actually have saved several pairs of our own kids baby shoes through the years for in class practice, but now we have a built in shoe holder. Love!

This bulletin board screamed our name.
  Unfortunately we couldn't find the originator, which is a bummer because we all know Pinterest is not a person. These ideas we pin come from real, hard working people. :) So if this is yours, let us know so we can give you credit {Your Name Here} because your bulletin board iRocks.  ;)
As we pinned this one, we so wished we could rewind and take our own kids back to Kindergarten or First Grade. 
 It's from Tie Dye Diva Patterns and our wheels are spinning on how we might work this little gem into our first day of school goodbyes. Let's just say there may be a few teachers students who need a bracelet from their loved ones to help them survive get through the first day depression jitters. Just saying...

For Us Moms...

This was one of our very first pins ever and it remains our absolute favorite.
Moms, if you still have kids who believe, tuck this away for when the time comes...
If you read it now (which you'll want to, BUT not with kid readers in the room!), grab a box of tissues. 
 You have been warned...
The idea comes from Cozi, which just so happens to be one of our favorite free Mom apps too! It is exactly what we will tell our kids when the sad day comes...
Got finicky eaters?
 We did too until we tried this fabulous, fun idea from Real Simple.
Dinner dice...Too easy...

We started this idea with our own daughters immediately upon pinning.

It's from Mama Jenn, and has made Mama Christy and Mama Tammy pretty happy. It's not only a fabulous idea, but an amazingly powerful communication tool between mommies and daughters. Thanks Mama Jenn for helping us Moms out. We love it! 
Just for Fun...

We are firm believers in the Laugh or Cry motto of life. 
We choose to laugh...

This is us...
This really happened...And it really isn't like riding a bike. 

Ask our backs. They'll vouch.

This one makes us laugh...
 Then cry...

What a fun linky! Be sure to head back over to the fabulous  
 First Grade Parade for more Favorite Friday Pins!

Fluttering Through First Grade


  1. I just found your blog through Cara's linky and I am your newest follower! I adore the bracelet idea! Unfortuntely, I have two boy so I don't think either one would go for wearing a bracelet. :( Totally agree that a kid-free trip to the grocery store is a reason to celebrate!

    Fun in First Grade!

  2. Found your blog through the linky! Always great to find new friends!

    From Blood to Books!

  3. I love you guys so much. I love all your pins. Some made me laugh and some brought tears to my eyes. I made covers for my pin boards and need lots of credit for the effort. Come and check them out. We need an end of summer meet up before we go back to school... right?
    Kisses and craziness,

  4. I just found your blog as I was searching tonight and I LOVE your shoe table! As we all know, the primary grades are known for learning this very important skill. I plan to set up a similar table this year in my room. What a great activity to have students work on when they have a few extra minutes each day!! I also appreciated the two bracelet idea. I almost always have a little kiddo who needs a little extra "something" to help them through the first few days (or weeks) of school. This would be a perfect little item to make and send home with them to share with the one that they miss the most. Thank you so much for the great ideas and I look forward to checking back soon.

  5. I love the dinner dice idea! Your blog is super cute :)

    A Sunny Day in First Grade

  6. The shoe table is awesome! I need this! I seriously have maybe one or two kids who can tie shoes each year. This is most likely due to the fact that kids don't wear shoes in Hawaii, lol! Flip flops are the official footwear of the islands (slippers as we call them). Love the going to the grocery store pin!
