Five for Friday - August 16

I am linking up with Kacey for Five for Friday.  I can't believe how fast the week goes in Kinder.  Friday comes in a blink of an eye.

We have a new principal, this year, who we all love.  This is my truck parked in his spot, so much closer to the front of the school.  At staff meetings, he has a raffle if you are on time - passes out some food certificates and his parking spot for the month.  I didn't, actually, win the spot - but a friend did and she is off track this month.  So, she gave it to me.  Love it.

My little ones get to play with gears, blocks, playdough and free time.  They are having fun using their imagination and I am loving every minute of watching them use it.

My dad has an amazing garden.  This is one of four huge pumpkins growing in his backyard.  I couldn't believe how many vines there are in his garden.

My granddaughter's Kinder teacher made the most amazing scrapbook with her kids.  This puppy is over 4 inches thick, filled with lots of love.  I borrowed it so I could take pictures of the pages, amazing.  My grand babe drew this self portrait at the beginning of Kinder, super proud of her drawing skills.

Last Saturday, I went on a wine tasting boat tour - so much fun.  They took us by these sea lions napping on a dock.  There was a total of 5 of them.  This big guy rolled his head at me, "Yes, may I help you."  It was so funny.  You can't see the houses but to the left is John Wayne's old house and to the right is Nicholas Cage's house (which is gutted down to the structure - kinda creepy looking).

I'm off to take two more grand daughters school shopping, wish me luck.

Pin It!


  1. What a cool idea that your principal gives away his parking space and rewards you for being on time at staff meetings. Must be a fun atmosphere to teach in!

    Always an Adventure in Kindergarten

  2. I enjoyed reading your 5! The sea lions are so cool.
