Fun in the Sun Linky {5/30} and a FREEBIE

 Today I am linking up with my blogging buddy Tamara over at Mrs. Russell's Room.  If you have not stopped by her blog, you NEED to!  She is a super talented blogger and teacher with many fabulous ideas...and her newest is her Fun in the Sun Linky!

So what do I do to relax and have fun you ask:)  On Sunday, hubby and I took the boys blueberry picking.  We always LOVE this activity.  The weather was warm, but not Florida hot so it was enjoyable.  So what does one one with 5 pounds of blueberries you ask?  Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks I say!  No, I didn't make a cobbler or can any.  Just lots of healthy snacking:)

Yes, you are correct because that is not a picture of dear hubby or boys!  Two other first grade teachers were there with their families picking blueberries!  It was totally unplanned and a total surprise:)

If you you are still reading, I promised a FREEBIE earlier in the week HERE.  You can head on over to my Teachers Pay Teachers Store and download  Workshop and Training Notes for FREE!

Tomorrow is FINALLY Friday.  I am off from school and attending my son's field trip to Medieval Times.  There is nothing like eating you lunch with your fingers...HA!  Then 3 days and counting next week:)

Enjoy your Friday.

  1. Picking blueberries would be so fun. Where did you go? We don't have anything that close around here. Enjoy Medieval Times. It's one place I haven't been yet. I'll probably be going as a chaperone for my daughter next year.
