Five for Friday {June 19}

I'm linking up with Kasey from Doodle Bugs Teaching for this week's Five for Friday.

My teammate and I had another math work session.  We *think* we are now set with templates and other manipulatives that need created through February. This is a good place for us!

A teacher friend, her daughter and I hit the Regal Cinema's $1 movie on Tuesday.  They have $1 movies on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10:00am.  This week we saw Box Trolls (eh, ok) and last week we saw Annie (so cute!).    Check it out and see if they have it in your area. 

The movies were fantastic because we've seen 4.5 inches of rain this week.  Needing something keep us busy!  We've also been prepping for VBS this week- another great inside activity.

Snowflakes from the ceiling and "base camp" at the entrance to the sanctuary.

Our VBS theme is Everest.  We borrowed a Yeti from our local science center.  It was part of their window display this winter. A very creative guy at our church designed the mountain and built it with the help of some volunteers.  Can't wait for the kids to see it!

I had some successful "fix its" this week!  I'm not very handy, but I am frugal and I don't like waiting around for someone else to do it.  So, thanks to a friendly employee at Lowe's, I able to fix my tub drain that had stopper that didn't work (you couldn't take a bath).  That was a 3 minute fix.

I also fixed my ceiling fan in my bedroom.  When you turned it on, it sounded like it was going to fly off the ceiling. It was wobbly and loud!  A frugal home improvement guy on YouTube said to tape nickels to a blade to balance the fan.  Who knew!?  The only problem with that fix it was that I couldn't find the duct tape and ended up having a nickel fly off the moving blade.  I promptly went and looked for the duct tape again!  We are good to go now. :)

What have you been up to this week?


  1. I love the Yeti and I bet the kids are going to love it even more. VBS is so much fun! I took my nephew to the movies and watched "Home" form $3 at our movie theater this past week. If you haven't seen that it is soo cute! Have a great weekend!

    Get Your Science on in Room 701

    1. I haven't seen "Home"; I'll have to look for that one. Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Woo! Love this peak at your week! I really want to see Annie! And for being $1, not bad at all!!!! :)

    1. Annie was really cute! This week Paddington is on our agenda. :)
