Five for Friday!

Its Friday! Not that days of the week really matter too much to me at the moment with a 4 week old baby, but I'm excited for all my teacher friends! Its time to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!

My week has been full with looking after this little one! I miss the routine of school but love the daily newborn cuddles that I get! I loved it even more when I received the Term 2 Reporting Timeline on my work email today and know that I don't have to write them!

A friend recommended watching a video associated with The Happiest Baby on the Block and it is amazing how well the strategies work. We are learning everyday and this video was a game changer for us in dealing with newborn cries! You can watch it here. 

We have been so lucky to have so many visitors over the last month. We've had family members, childhood friends, colleagues, ex students and this very special lady!

Paula is one of my blogging buddies. Paula live in Ballarat which is a bit under 3 hours away and she made the trip especially to see us! I had never met Paula until I started blogging and have had the privilege to get together with her a few times. She is an amazing teacher and I love following along with her teaching on her blog Paula's Place.

We have our heater going today. I know it sounds crazy but I love winter, having the heater on and rain coming down outside. I am hoping it might rain tomorrow.

Every time this rose comes out I am amazed at the flowers! I love the stripes. 

Check back on my blog on Sunday! I am going to be part of a linky of blogs from Down Under. We have lots of freebies for you!

  5. I don't teach math, but I absolutely adore your blog! Very cute layout! I really enjoy reading your updates.
