Five For Friday

Hello Friday!  It’s good to see you again!  That’s what is so great about you….you keep coming back! Such a faithful friend you are, Friday!  And hello to you, teacher friends!  Here’s a little Five For Friday post for your entertainment.  Thank you Doodle Bugs Teaching for hosting!

This week’s theme: Don’t you just love the fall?

Don’t you just love the fall?  We do because it means racing season is over and the hubs is home every weekend.  Lindsey, our daughter and the other half of 2 Literacy Teachers, was allowed to drive the race car out of the trailer and into the garage for the winter, because her father just had shoulder surgery and can’t do it.  (It is a sore point for her that her brother actually is allowed to the race the ding dang thing, but she is only allowed to drive it in and out of the trailer. Harrumph! We believe in girl power, but evidently her father worries about his little girl.  Let’s see if that holds when the granddaughter is old enough to drive.  Anywho…the annual “putting the race car away” unceremony, means that fall is here!

Don’t you just love the fall?  It’s great because we get to take part in our democracy!  For this person who LOVES her country, that is a privilege I wholeheartedly embrace! And what better way to fill in your ballot than to use your extra special Teachers Pay Teachers pen?  So go vote…and be sure to use your fave pen!

Don’t you just love the fall?  I do because I get to teach reading intervention groups using our pumpkin passages with my ELL kiddles.  This is one of my favorites because these little kiddles are going to the pumpkin patch TODAY!  And for most of them, it is their first time ever doing it.  Boy oh boy are they excited, and even though I don’t get to go with them, I was blessed to enjoy their excitement and enthusiasm all week while we read about pumpkins and the pumpkin patch!  So fun!

Don’t you just love the fall?  Fall means I get to teach some reading intervention groups about rocks, because they are studying them in their classrooms in science!  We love rocks!  They are just lumps of dirt to some, but to others….they are amazing treasure!  Just love the wonder in the kiddles’ eyes as they explore them!

Don’t you just love the fall?  We do because it means our annual Fall drive over the mountains to the beautiful Bavarian town of Leavenworth.  The drive over is amazing with all of the trees along the river in full color, and the little town never disappoints!  Good food, Bavarian atmosphere, oompah music, fun shopping, more oompah music, live billy goats, more oompah music…almost makes you want to break into a polka…I said almost…, and great family time…..ahhhh! Our favorite.

Happy Fall everyone!  I’m off to bake some fall cookies.  Yum!

    I love Fall too! The trees look so beautiful with all the colorful leaves. Fall is my favorite season because I love to wear my jeans and a cute sweater. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

    My niece lives in Tumwater and she and her family just spent some time in Leavenworth. Looks like a neat place.
