Five for Friday 30th May

We have had another super busy week! Linking up with Doodle Bugs to share the love.

This week we have explored Shape by making Shape Pizzas.

We planted some super cute succulents at home in boxes made from pallets. Lucky my hubby is handy.

We had the 2015 Information Session last night. I stayed at work until it started at 7.30pm to finally get some displays up & some laminating done.

I've been enjoying the last days of Autumn with some great morning walks around the lake.

We rocked assembly today! A performance of 'A sailor went to sea sea sea' with panache (and one poppet in hysterical tears). They were so cute!

Happy weekend,

5 for Friday~ 23rd May

What a week! Thank goodness Friday rolled around.

Last weekend was b-u-s-y. It started off with a trip to the 'Genius & Ambition: Royal Academy of Arts' exhibition at the Bendigo Art Gallery and finished up with the Christening of our friend's baby. 

The new gallery space is spectacular and the exhibit was amazing, one of the best I have been to in ages. We are very lucky to have such a fantastic space, with regular international exhibitions. 

I finally gave in and bought myself a trolley this week to set up some core drawers. Best decision ever. 

We celebrated by decorating them for our Write the Room activity this week which is a great freebie from here.

My sister bought me this Minion case & sent it to me this week. It has cheered me up!

One of my Mum's bought us these class fish today. She is such a sweetie. So we now have 4 fish to name. I've already started to pray that they survive the weekend.

A 5 for Friday Catch-Up

I haven't blogged in a while! Life has been great, hectic & stressful all at once. Here is a mixed-mash-up catch-up of the last two weeks:

This term we are learning all about transport & road safety under the Inquiry topic "What things move?"
We started out by brainstorming. They are pretty insightful kidlets, even the poppet who drew "dancing clouds" because they move :)

Highlight of last week {I had major flu brain, I've had 3 days off in the last 2 weeks which I rarely do}- Poppet M comes in from lunch carrying two large sacks. Me, "Honey, what are those?" Cue rest of the class laughing hysterically in background. M's reply, "My socks. My brother helped me fill them up with sand at lunch."
It's about at this time that I realise he is barefoot and one of my girl's were carrying his shoes. I failed in keeping a straight face!

We spent a fantastic 3 days in Melbourne last weekend for my friend's wedding. It was just gorgeous!
Cool street art in Collingwood 

Fantastic venue- Mountain Goat Brewery in Richmond.

 Wedding cuteness! The hubs & me.

Twilight in Port Melbourne

I also got a chance to get some nail art at i scream nails in Collingwood. If you're in Melbourne check them out! Or for nail inspiration follow them on instagram.

Hope you have a fantastic weekend! Love & jelly tots,

Currently May!

Yay to May! Even though it is cold & miserable here, this month will hopefully be awesomely epic. So to start May off the right way {clearly with a lot of rhyming}, it's time to link up with the gorgeous Farley over at Oh Boy 4th Grade.

Listening- we are living up to our winter Friday night tradition & are cuddled up on the couch, watching BH&G after having Chinese. Yummy!

Loving- I am having one of those weeks were I am breathing everything in & appreciating life. No matter what has been happening I am truly blessed & grateful for the amazing people in my life. 
The hubs turned the big 3-0 this week so we have been in Birthday Week central. He tried to turn May into birthday month but I don't have the energy for that! 30 presents for being 30 was enough trouble, plus all the birthday week presses. But I loved it!

Thinking- Life is short, suck it up, move on & enjoy the last drop of life & sunshine out of everyday.

Wanting- Autumn has really just kicked in & I miss Summer badly. I am not made for cold weather.

Needing- Reports are rearing their ugly head soon so I really have to get cracking with my assessments. My kiddos rule though, they have already learnt so much. One of my poppets knew one letter coming into school (yep) and now knows 29. The light is switching on!

Surprise- To two lovely ladies who have both helped me out school & blog wise this year. Thank you for making my life easier Lauren & Paula!

And check out Katie & Reuben at House of Humble for a great 'home/life' blog. I am obsessed with blog stalking them & their cuteness. Love it!

Thanks for stopping by!

P.S. Was it noticeable that I can't stop saying & writing 'awesome'? :)
