I don't think I've done a 5 for Friday since I've been back at school. We've been back to school for 60 days now and they really suck up all of my energy. 

I guess I'm still not doing a 5 for Friday since it's Saturday afternoon but ah well. In the spirit of some of my favorite bloggers I'm doing 5 for Fraturday. :D

So before you judge me it's not like I have my tree up, stockings hung, and carols playing in the background BUT I have done a little Christmas shopping. (I'm usually that Dec 23rd shopper so I had to get on it this year). I also decided to be in charge of the Staff Gift Exchange this year. I did this not only to take the responsibility off of my coworkers that regularly do it but because I have an app that I used last year. It made it SUPER easy. 

I just add their names, email addresses, and they take care of the rest online. Easy peasy. 

Sign-up sheet I made for my coworkers:

My friend tried to kill me last Sunday. I live in Indiana and there is a cultural trail in Downtown Indy. She told me it was about 8 miles. I laughed at her. Okay, not really laughed but I told her that I'd be down for walking with her but I don't think I could do all 8 or if I did I'd slow her down. 

So Sunday afternoon we set off walking.
We walked for over 3hrs my friends. My walking app messed up a little bit so the distance wasn't accurate but we did about 8 miles...we veered off the trail and stopped to look at things and take pictures but hey--I did it. 
Do you BitStrip? I try not to inundate my fb friends with comics of me--but they make me giggle. 

We (finally) had our first marble party! I brought in my popcorn popper, broke out the play-dough, and put in a dvd. I was "The Best Teacher Ever". So I'd say it was a success. 

I am planning on having a giveaway with some blogging buddies. I'm organizing their info and hope to have it up soon. :D

Congrats on 500 followers! I don't know if my class is ever going to get the marble jar filled. I kind of forget about it except when they are noisy. Shame on me, I've got to catch them being good!
