Five for Friday

Happy Friday! I don't know about you, but I'm so glad the weekend is here! It's almost Valentine's Day, and I'm looking forward to celebrating with my children! I'm linking up with Doodle Bug's Teaching today for her weekly linky Five for Friday! Be sure to hop over to her blog, and check out the other bloggers who are linking up! 
Five for Friday is really just about five random things from my blog or life that I want to share with you today. I'm using my Instagram pictures from this week as the inspiration for my post today--I had lots to be thankful for this week, and Instagram is the place I usually share positivity in my life. ;)

Number one random thing? I got my first AWESOME feedback in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. What a joy! I've only been selling for three weeks now, and I've actually sold a handful of things, which is so very encouraging for what's to come! So exciting! 

Next up--seeing my daughter and her friend work on their science fair project! They did SO well with this. I really think the Science Notebook I made for them helped the two of them understand each of the steps in the scientific method. I made a square version for them, which I'll be adding to an updated version of the product in the next few days! *Confession: It was (and still is) taking every.bit. of strength in my perfectionist body not to fix those letters on the top of the board! I know. Let it gooooooo...
The third thing I'm writing about today is the Valentine's party that I have the privilege of hosting in my daughter's classroom this afternoon! If you've read some of my earlier posts, you know that I'm taking a year off of teaching right now since our family moved to a new state and I wanted to get everyone settled in without the stress of having a new job myself. I'm loving being able to volunteer in my daughters' classrooms. I'm the head room mom for my eldest, which is not a position I ever really pictured myself to be in, but it's so fun! Of course I've been planning fun games and crafts for each party, but it's also been a chance for me to sneak in a STEM lesson or two! I'm such a geek. It's fine. #perfectlynormal 
 Number four in my random string of thoughts and pictures is Instagram and my newfound appreciation for motivational quotes. To be completely honest, I didn't always like seeing these types of things pop up in my feed. I don't know why, but they always felt a little...I don't know...contrived? Too perfect to be true? I don't know why I've recently warmed to the quotes, but I have. And I'm glad I have, because I've found myself pausing to reflect more on certain quotes, maybe even feeling a little meditative over the really good ones. Maybe it's a fad, but I'm okay with that. Even if it's temporary, I'll take the whatever solace I can find, wherever that may be. 
Ok, last one! This picture is just something that struck me funny. It just so happened the other day that my EC planner and iPad matched my binder, the Dr. Seuss book, my clipboard, my CURTAINS, my COUCH (don't think I'm weird--it's the sea blue/green color that can be found in my curtains and couch, LOL). I guess when you are drawn to certain colors, you're really drawn to them! What more can I say? 
Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate you reading my post!
