Five for Friday--Only 3 left in the schoolyear!!

TGIF, yall!  We are so excited for the weekend!  The forecast is looking great for Charleston.  Emily will be able to relax a little when the hubs returns from his business trip.  I can't wait to see my parents, they are coming to town tomorrow morning!

We are linking up with Doodlebugs for some Five for Friday love.  This one will be a little fluffy, we've had a crazy week here!

1.  In case yall haven't been reading up on the pirate Blackbeard, you may not know this little gem of a fact.    We got the hard hitting truth from one of our little researchers.  "Blackbeard demanded medicine to remember his girlfriend and she left him a venereal disease to remember her."  YIKES!!  Those brothels were dangerous back in the day!

2.  Emily made a fun new game.  We tried out our version of Candy Land to review some basic math skills.  It was really fun!

3.  We made Mother's Day gifts with our kiddos.  We used THIS awesome freebie from Susan Moran.  Check her out HERE!  In the midst of an insanely busy week, we are so thankful for all of the TpTers out there who share their incredible resources.  What an amazing community!

4.  Today we met up with a new bloggy friend.  I'm sure yall have seen the AH-MAZING things from Bridget at Little Lovely Leaders.  If you haven't had a chance yet.... run, don't walk!  Go check out her stuff HERE!!  She is so cute and we had a great time hanging out and talking all things teachery!

5.  Happy Mother's Day!

Just a coupla hens hanging out!  This is a picture of my Mom and me on vacation in Kiawah.  We stopped by the Fat Hen for dinner one night, so delish!

Isn't this picture gorge!?  Here is Emily, her sister, and her mom at Emily's wedding.  LOVE IT and LOVE our mamas!

Happy Mother's Day to all you Moms out there.  May your day be merry & bright and all kinds of wonderful!
