1. This has to be my NUMBER ONE! My daughter had her first official interview for a full time teaching position this week and she nailed it. The principal called her a few hours later and offered her a fifth grade teaching position. I can't begin to tell you how excited I am to see her starting off her teaching career. Definitely a proud mommy moment!
2. Camping! My daughter and I slipped away for a night of camping with good friends on the Russian River. We drank wine and played cards most of the night. Morning found us on the river bank watching the 'show' complete with seals, osprey, and a host of other critters. We took the long way home, enjoying a drive along the coast. I might be partial, but I think I live in a beautiful part of the world.
4. Washi Tape! The mailman dropped off a litte envelope in my mailbox today. I am now the proud owner of 5 rolls of washi tape. I don't really know what I'm going to do with it yet, but the colors coordinate perfectly with the color scheme in my classroom. Coordinating colors? Who can resist that? I can see this becoming an addiction.
5. Okay, so this hasn't actually happened yet, but I'm including it anyway! My daughter and I are going to the Oakland A's game tonight. It's Firework Night. I love fireworks!
Well that's my Five for Friday. I just realized that 4 out of 5 things on my list include my daughter. That is one of the perks about both of us having summers off! We get to spend time some quality time together! Head on over to Doodle Bugs Teaching and link up!
