Five for Friday

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I saw this temperature, and I knew I had to get out of town and visited Flagstaff for the day. I will definitely take weather that is nearly 30 degrees cooler! What better way to enjoy a beautiful 80 degree day in Flagstaff than with a wine tasting?

This was unique, and a lot of fun once we figured it out. We went to a place called Blendz, where you get to create your own blend of wine. At first we were hesitant to try mixing wines together, because last time I checked I'm a teacher and not a wine maker, and didn't want to make something that tasted gross. Once we got going we had a lot of fun mixing and matching different kinds of wine! I would highly recommend a tasting like this if you ever get the chance!

This week was the start of the Explore Like a Pirate linky hosted by Sweet Sweet Primary. I'm still reading the book, but it is inspiring me to get creative with my lessons this year. And hey, since I have an entire summer I will have the time to really think them through. Click here to check out the first post of the linky!

I can't believe that I am just now hearing about Bloglovin'! 

I'm still learning how it works.. Any tips you can give me? 

I've got to be honest here. The start of my week was VERY dramatic. I woke up and found that my condo had become a beehive. 

Yes, you read that right. My condo was filled with bees! If you look closely in the upper left you'll see bees gathering outside the scupper. The picture doesn't show the swarm of bees that are going crazy on my patio.

It's been a little scary getting these guys out of my condo - both inside and out. May the odds be ever in our favor. 

*Fingers crossed that the bees don't come back*

This week in my Summer Series I wrote about dealing with the difficult class as a whole. I hope that you are spared the difficult class this year, but if you're not you'll need as many tips as you can to survive the year. Click here to read all about it!

Happy Friday!

  3. Those bees are crazy! Good luck with all that. We'll be in Flagstaff for a short time next month, just driving through though, no wine tasting. (I'd rather have the wine!)
