Rewind to last week

This past week was pretty crazy! 

First off....I cannot believe it’s the middle of February!! 
Time is flying by too fast!

Last week we celebrated Valentines Day & Chinese New Year, then my husband and I went out of town for the weekend to meet up with my family for a fun little vacation. 

THEN progress reports were sent out today, which I had done a long time ago stayed up last night grading math assessments, homework packets & filling out said progress reports (and might have finished them at school today) to have them ready to send home.

Do you have to send home progress reports?


I would like to go back in time to last week and share with you all how our week went!

A lot of my girls showed up on Valentines Day with their hair in ♥ shaped. A-DOR-A-BLE!
 We didn't have our party until after lunch and they were so antsy and excited!
 (I have to insert here that I absolutely LOVE being a teacher...everyday...but especially on holidays! It's never just another average day....their excitement can't help but make me smile and thoroughly enjoy spending the day with them.)

We made a Valentine card for their mom's & dad's by using a pencil eraser as a stamp. If you'd like the printable, click here.
I was amazed with some of the Valentine boxes that were decorated and brought to school! Did your kids have some fancy ones!?
We made a "Bee Mine" craft and they turned out so good! I was lucky to have 3 parent volunteers to help us make these.
And to top off my day, my classroom phone rang shortly after lunch...I was told to send a couple of my kids to the front desk, they had something I would want:
 How cute is that!? My husband has never sent me flowers at work (we've only been married 2 1/2 years) and I always wondered what I would do if I got that surprise. 

I assumed my face would turn red (it turns red so easily!) and I was totally right. My face went red! Haha. 

They actually arrived in a box that was very difficult to open. When I finally got it open, all my kids could see was the bubble wrap surrounding them. 
 They flipped out saying "Those are my favorite things ever!" and started to swarm me like bees on pollen! I had to grab the flowers and attempt to hold my kids back!

When they calmed down (after I promised to let every single one of them pop some bubbles) I read the card aloud to them. Some of my girls put their hands on their heart, or face, and said "awww!" 

Can you be a hopeless romantic at the age of 5!? Hahaha. 
I tried to not bust out laughing. 

I was able to get those babies in some water and they hung out on my desk the rest of the day. It was great!

All last week we also celebrated Chinese New Year! 
We learned about red good luck envelopes and they got to put one together and decorate it. (I forgot to take pictures!) We also learned how to make Chinese lanterns that they were thrilled to take home & a dragon/snake chain!

 All in all it was a crazy busy fun week!

Also, just a couple pictures from our weekend trip. My husband and dad were able to go on a 3 hour bike ride while us girls went shopping! (I love buying new clothes!)  Sunday we went for a fun drive and went past a beautiful lake {more like a very large pond}, and we ended our trip with a family ping pong tournament! We had to play a game against each person to determine the "seeding" and then we played double elimination to determine the winner. I definitely had a rocky start, but was able to pull a strong finish with the win! (Only because my husband was playing left handed and was super nice to me).

I hope that you all had a wonderful Presidents Day weekend!
