Snow Day Club and Five for Friday

I'm joining the club!  I've been in the club for 3 days now!  This precious little button is from Tammy at Dots of Fun! This is the 2nd time this year that I've been snowed in for multiple days on end.  This week, we were out on Wednesday, but I really think we could have gone to school.  Snow didn't start until 2:00 that afternoon.

It's been awhile since I've linked up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday, but since I've had 3 snow days in a row, I have the time.  Although, not much was accomplished.

I had the honor to help present a $25,000 check to a new Milken Educator on Tuesday of this week.  This is one of the most exciting things I get to do and look forward to it each time.  This time it was very special because I knew the teacher receiving the award.  The Milken Educator Award is kept very secret - there's always an assembly for a reason such as improving test scores, Veteran's Day, etc.  No one knows who is receiving it, so the reaction is priceless.  

 Wednesday was our first of 3 snow days.  The snow did not start until late afternoon, but by midnight, we had about 5 inches on the ground.  Cheney and I took a midnight stroll with a cup of coffee.

 When we woke up on Thursday morning, we had 8 inches on the ground!  I never expected that! We had a great snowball fight with each other.  I couldn't catch my breath because I was laughing so hard.  It's always fun to remember what it is like to be kids again.



 My 3rd evaluation was scheduled for Wednesday, but due to snow, it has been postponed.  This is the 2nd time it has been pushed back due to snow.  I'm just ready to have it finished.  It's an announced one so I've prepped it twice.  Hopefully, I'll be able to get it in without too much tweaking.  It's in Science - ugh! The phases of the moon - double UGH!

I'm using fav7 for a resource during the lesson. If you want to know more, see this post.

 Today is Valentine's Day.  Hubby and I have never really made a big deal of it ever.  So, this year I'm counting my new Noonday necklace as a Valentine's Day treat.  He did help me pick it out.

Head on over to Doodle Bugs Teaching to see what everyone else is up to this week!


  1. Wow, that is a lot of snow!!! It is so pretty. I wish some of that would fall in the northern part of Louisiana. Thanks for sharing. Happy Valentine's Day.
