Five for Friday

It's Friday, and you know what that means!  :)  Time to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for the Five for Friday!!
For those of you that read my blog, you know that I am in Northern Michigan right now visiting my parents. Yesterday I finally crossed another item off my bucket list!  Kayaking Ocqueoc (Ah-key-ock) Lake & River!!  It was BEAUTIFUL!!!!  So quiet, and it seemed like every time I turned around a little muskrat was swimming along side of me! :)  Also, since it was Michigan and not North Carolina I didn't need to worry about cotton mouths. :)

Our son has also been enjoying Northern Michigan as well...

He went kayaking for the first time!  It looks like it worked pretty well, but you can't see that my hubby has MY kayak tied to his, and he is doing all of the paddling...we are just riding. :)  He is out and about outside playing when he is not receiving an abundance of snuggles from Grammy and Grampy!!!!!!!
We have been doing our fair share of rock collecting!  We have had something in mind to make for over a year now, and we have been hard at work collecting what we look for a Monday Made It! in the near future!!! :)

We had two rainy days, so I was able to put the finishing touches on my customary measurement conversion cards.  It is a set of 24 task cards which are ALL word problems (GREAT for use for FUN test prep activities).  
You can click on the cover to take you to this item in my TPT Store.  I also had them up for free for a limited time with an announcement on my Facebook page.  So, if you're not already a fan, please join me!  I have flash freebies often! :)
Finally, there are 2 more days to shop my TPT SALE! Click the picture to go directly to my store. :)

  1. It looks like you guys are having a blast. I also completely understand the whole water and cotton mouth problem. Oh the joys on living in North Carolina!

  2. I love kayaking! My hubby and I discovered it last year on vacation. We took a tour and went around an island in the Atlantic. It was GORGEOUS. Enjoy the rest of your trip!

    1. Kayaking is like a hidden gem! It's easy and soooo pretty! Your island adventure sounds awesome!

  3. Your pictures are BEAUTIFUL! I'm glad you are not having to worry about snakes. I loathe them and have had a water moccasin fall in my canoe before. SCARY!!!
