Five for Friday: The First Week of Summer

Hello friends! I've been enjoying the first week of summer break and I'm loving that I've finally got the time to blog. I am taking a little mini vacation from work (well...mostly), but I wanted link up with Kacey from Doodle Bugs Teaching and share some non teaching moments from the summer! 


Summer means that I get to take more pictures with a real camera instead of a cell phone! 



I've been spending some time riding this cutie. 

His name is Lonestar, but we call him Snapper. He has the most personality!! He doesn't really think he's a horse because I raised him on a bottle, so he's more like a dog or a person. He licks me and nibbles on me and anything else he can find! 


And he loves tress. This picture makes me laugh because he looks like he's playing hide and seek. 



I can't help myself. If I show you pictures of him or talk about him, I have to show you his baby pictures. He was so stinkin adorable. That top picture was the day he was born! 


He was a true baby...with the bottle every 3 hours and heating it up on the stove at all hours of the night! His formula did come in 5 gallon buckets though... 



On to more total randomness.


The flowers have not died yet. #victory 

Our house is situated so that the front of the house is mostly shady all day. I was determined to grow something there this year. I went to Lowe's and put one of every full shade plant in my cart. It turned out to be a good plan. 





When I picked up the mail Tuesday this card from a parent was waiting for me! It brought tears to my eyes. I love it! 




More animal cuteness. I've been doing a lot of this myself since summer has finally arrived! I hope you enjoy the weekend. I'm off to the beach on Monday morning!!

  2. I love that you live on a farm! I love the country and can only imagine how peaceful it is. I, too, am an animal lover, so I would LOVE to have all of those animals around me all the time. The card from your student's parent was so kind. I know you will keep that forever. I have a box full of mementos that I like to look at when I need extra motivation. I love your blog, as well...mostly because it is similar to mine! I LOVE polka dots and birds, too! :)
