Testing, Cheese Dip, and Mother's Day Freebie!

We are here for a Five for Friday Flashback!  Thank you to Kacey and Amanda!!


Testing....testing....1, 2, 3.........4, 5...yep.  State testing.  Aaaaaaaaaaaaaalllllllllllllllllll weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!!  But, it's over.  I would have taken a picture of them testing, since that's really all I have to show for the week, but I'm pretty sure that would be a testing anomaly and I'd be written up and I didn't take a picture of them testing.  But I'm sure you can imagine what it looked like.  I just know that I'm exhausted and all I did was WATCH them take it so I can only imagine how THEY feel!  But, they worked really hard, so I know they tried their best.  For me, that's enough!!   Thank you to all of our sweet friends and followers that checked up on us throughout the week to see how it was going!  That means so much!!  ~Amanda

Off to a fiesta- the best way to relax after testing is to share some time with a bowl of cheese dip, a little guacamole and some tortilla chips! Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!  We love our Mexican food! (It's such a comfort food, Amanda had Mexican 3 times this week!  Ahhhhh!)

    Hope you students did their best.

  5. It took me almost 7 years to find a decent Mexican restaurant around here! I grew up in Houston, so that was heartbreaking! We finished testing last week, but we had indoor recess while the middle and high schools finished testing. Boy were we happy to get outside today!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  7. I'm so glad that our state assessments are done too. It has been a long 2 weeks of testing for us. Our Celebration committee was great this year.. they left treats in the teacher's room everyday. I took a picture and made it one of my 5 random things for the week. We ate a lot of chocolate around here.. not so much Mexican!
    On Friday most of the staff met at a new "Suds Factory" to unwind. It was a great break.
    Enjoy the weekend!

  8. Glad you made it through testing week! We still have one more week left. Since I work with multiple grades, I get to go through two weeks of testing. I could definitely go for some cheese dip after all of that!
