I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching and Amanda from Teaching Maddeness to share some tidbits of my week. I had a crazy week with ONLY two full days total in the classroom, so keep reading if you don't mind the unrelated to teaching stuff:)
1. Daughter's Surgery
My daughter had her tonsils and adenoids removed on Thursday! I took family sick days Thursday and Friday. She was such a brave girl! I was shocked by how well she did. My husband and I were fighting back tears as she was wheeled away on that bed with the rails up:( But, all went well except one little problem with nausea after the surgery. She vomited 3x and they had to give her some meds in her IV which worked well.
Today, she had a great day and has been taking in fluids like a champ!
These are some of her favorite popsicles!
Here she is resting on the couch today:)
2. Yummy French Toast Bake
I baked some yummy french toast bake for a staff appreciation breakfast at my daughter's school. I used this Paula Deen recipe but accidentally cut the bread into squares instead of slices. I'm sure it was still delicious. How could it not be with 2 cups of cream and 8 eggs!?!
Of course, I sent some maple syrup from my uncle's farm with the dish!
3. Sad these are gone:(
Yep, I am a total sweets fanatic. So, of course my hubbie gave me some delicious chocolate covered strawberries for Mother's Day! They lasted quite a few days (believe it or not!) and now I wish I had more. It was the first time he ordered from Shari's Berries and they were the best I've ever had!!!
4. Sub Plans Galore
So, I was out Thursday and Friday with my daughter. Well, Tuesday I had IST (Instructional Support Team) meetings all afternoon and Monday I had a doctor appointment in the afternoon! The doctor appt. was scheduled months ago so I just went with it. Maybe it is better to be out all at once! Haha!! One awesome part about this was that I had the SAME sub all the time I was out and she is an amazing, retired teacher! She lives right around the corner from me and even dropped off papers yesterday all graded so I could record them in my book! Amazing...
5. ABC's Calendar Countdown!
We started the ABC's calendar countdown for the last 26 days of school on Monday! Yay!! I LOVE this idea from the amazing Amanda and Stacia at Collaboration Cuties! Check out their blog post for an editable copy to use for next year (unless you wanted to start a little late because I can't imagine many schools have 26 days or more left of school!).
Have a great weekend everyone!! Three of my students are in a county wide spelling bee tomorrow! I can't wait to see them and am keeping my fingers crossed:)
