Five for Friday...What a Week!

Today seems like a great day to join...
Plus, our brains can handle a list of 1 to 5 right about now...
 NOPE...Not for us...Not even close!
We ran in our annual Jogathon this week! This is by far our most favorite school event and the easiest school fundraiser we know! Make a track, build some hype, and let them run for fun...
and mon-ey. If we raise our needed funds, the kids have voted to Slime the Principal!
Our community helpers show up to cheer our first graders on too. Plus, they brought Goliath, the ginormous horse. They don't call him ginormous...We did. He was huge! His partners told the kids they have to use a ladder to get in the saddle. 
So, that's ginormous in our books.
 The joys of job sharing...Christy went to Hawaii. 
No cussing allowed...Sorry...But, Tammy understands what you're saying...
 She did some work. Report cards were really rough this trimester. Hmph...
But, BEST of all she got to play with our blogging buddy Corinna from Surfin' Through Second!
 This is our favorite part about blogging, and a side effect we did not anticipate when we began this journey...Meeting blogging friends face to face...In Hawaii!
Meanwhile, back at the Ranch...Tammy took out the whole Hawaii thing on the classroom just in time for St. Patrick's Day...
Perhaps just a wee bit green with envy? ;)
After job sharing for 12 years, we know neither of us are going anywhere, so we can get away with things like this from time to time. Plus, did we mention Christy went to Hawaii. Oh, we did?! Sorry...
Sub Day walk away! We are in love with these sub tub activities. Our sub plans were a piece of cake! The class had a great time working with Miss Nelson and we did absolutely nothing other than prep or tub and walk away! Yay!

And, apparently the sub was happy too!

This DUH moment has been brought to you by the makers of 
We don't change seats nearly as often as we should in first grade...
But, now we just may switch them every week now! #notreally
The other day, we had an epiphany. Work smarter, not harder...That's what we always say.
So we created our class seating chart in PowerPoint, printed, laminated and Voila! It's a dry erase seating chart. Yeah, we know...
