And now for my Friday Fave Five, End of School Edition.
1. You guessed it! Today was my last day in the classroom for the school year. The classroom teachers and students have 11 more days but teachers in my classification finished today. I baked chocolate chip cookies for all three first grade classes and passed them out at recess and lunch, helped to complete all the assessments for language arts, attended an appreciation luncheon, unclipped my ID badge for the last time, and at 5:30 met some fellow freedom lovers for Happy Hour at a local restaurant.
2. Our Southern California weather has been wonderful this week. Early morning coastal fog and low cloudiness with sun breaking through in the late morning, giving us temperatures in the high60s/low70s. Perfect for doing afternoon gardening. Nothing tastes better than freshly picked spinach leaves straight from the garden container!
3. A wonderful weekend in San Diego with most of the family. We celebrated MamaMia's college graduation (scroll down to the post below if you're interested) and then played the rest of the weekend.
4. Where we played.
Balboa Park in San Diego.
Museum of Man
Balboa Park deserves a post all its own and I plan to share photos of the area later this weekend.
5. Coronado Beach.
I think I'm falling in love with San Diego!
