Friday Fave Five

Friday is FINALLY here………Actually as a teacher I am really counting the days until the last day of school more than I am  Fridays 🙂

This week went fast with having Memorial Day off!

And at our household the last 3 years Memorial Day weekend means baseball tournaments! 🙂  SportTman got to play at our local minor league stadium for a night game as part of the tournament he was in this weekend.  That was exciting for him and me, BUT what was truly nice, this was a local tournament and we did not have to travel.  It was nice to “be around’ this past weekend!

Strawberries!!!!!!!!  I love ’em!  So much so, The Inventor and I stopped at an Amish farm EVERY day this week to buy a fresh picked quart of strawberries for $3.25.  Needless to say we are all quite addicted to strawberries!

Track and Field Day for my students! It was a steamy and HOT day, but we had a BLAST!  My special needs students got to participate in a ton of running and throwing events against 3 other schools.  I brought SportTman and 6 other volunteers along for the day.  It was a memorable day full of fun and smiles!  I apologize for blocking out the student’s face, but with confidentiality I must, but I think you get the idea….my student was booking down the track for the 50 meter dash, with SportTman and another buddy beside him.

A book makes my Fave this week…..yes a book!!  I read a book!

I love to read, but just don’t take the time.  But I WON a great book from Mocha with Linda a few weeks ago.  It’s a riveting read of a 17 year old girl who tries to take her own life by lying across railroad tracks as she hears a train approach.  She survives this nightmare, and loses both her legs in the process.  The book tells of her struggles with depression and living life with out her legs.  BUT it is also a powerful testimony of a life transformed by Christ.  Great book!

Life In Spite of Me by Kristen Jane Anderson

Sports Bras…..I know a silly favorite, but I love them!  Wish they were invented when I was in high school and playing sports.

  1. I’ve seen that book on some blogs, but I haven’t read it. It looks wonderful!

    We love fresh strawberries, too! Somehow I think the ones from the Amish farm are better than the ones from my supermarket. 🙂

  2. Great week – it’s always a ton of busy at the end of a school year, isn’t it? And even more so for teachers, I suppose! Sounds like you are making it through with fun and energy. Have a good one, and cheer when school’s out for the summer!

  3. Wow, that’s a lot of strawberries. Did you eat them all this week, too or do you freeze some for later? I really need to get over to the Farmer’s Market and buy some before they go out of season.

  4. I remember wishing more tournaments were done in our city instead of having to out of town all the time too.

    Lots to do at the end of the school year for both you and your hubby, both of you being teachers.

    We still haven’t had local strawberries but am looking forward to them when they’re ready!

  5. You are living near the area where we LOVED to visit 2 years ago….my kids love fresh strawberries (I’m allergic) but there aren’t many Amish in the Capital Region…they do live out near where my folks live and we love to stop at their farms and buy sweet corn, tomatoes, and beans when in the Mohawk Valley in summer months……and…yeah for Track and Field Days…ours is next Friday.
    And I’m counting down the school days with ya. We have 13 left. My teen has 4 left and then finals/Regents. Enjoy the weekend!!

  6. I love strawberry time as well.

    The book sounds very interesting! I wouldn’t be able to put it down.

    Glad you got to stay close to home for Memorial Day.

  7. We can’t get enough of strawberries this year either, they are just so delicious!

    Interesting that you like sports bras, the doctors ordered me to only wear them and I can’t get used to them. I feel like they flatten me out and are not feminine 😉

  8. Great book 🙂 Even better yummy strawberries 🙂

    Luke 6:38
    Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”
