Five for Friday -- I'm back!!

I know, I know.  I have not done a Five 4 Friday with Doodle Bugs in a while.
Let's see what I can come up with....
I've finally been able to finish some "works in progress" that have been sitting on my desktop for a while.  Stop by and take a look HERE.
Each packet has journal covers that can be used on whole class journals or as task cards in a writing center.  

My family of 6 have decided to spend some great family time this summer volunteering at a ranch camp for special needs kids.  It has been an amazing experience!  The kids are amazing and the volunteers that are working with us are some of the most awesome people I have met.  We have all had the most fun.  & to top it all off, I have fallen in love.  His name is Chief-Roast Beef.  He's the horse I lead on trail with some of the campers.  He is one of the older guys but is the sweetest thing I have ever met!!

We took a selfie!

And in between all that was mentioned above, I've been working on graduate school work.  I passed my first class with a 95%!!  Woohoo!  Not bad for someone that hasn't been in school since 2001.  I'm finishing up my lecture class over the next 3 weeks.  It's been fun beginning this adventure over summer break...I'm a bit worried about when school is back in.  How in the world will I find time to complete all this writing?  Help!!  Any suggestions from you guys with experience?

 I hit a TPT milestone!!
So I hosted a sale.  It ends tonight at midnight.  Stop by and get 20% off before it ends!!

And finally, the scavenger hunt hosted by Blog Hoppin'!  I love, love, love the idea but am not the best in keeping up with Instagram.  I think I'm going to need to spend a full day hunting some of these things down.  It is so much fun to see what others have already posted and a little discouraging too.  So many of ya'll are so far ahead of me.  I need to get a move on.


  1. Chief Roast Beef! Love it! And love the idea of working in that camp. Good for you!

  2. Congratulations on getting a 95%! That's awesome! I love the Blog Hoppin' scavenger hunt too, but I'm having a hard time finding all that stuff here in Korea. I'm finding a couple of things at least.
