Five For Friday (April 21st) - Easter, Oviparous Animals & Milestones!

Hello Fab Followers! 
Stopping by with my Five for Friday check in.  Hope you all had a great week! Here's what I'm grateful for this week.....what about you?

First off.....I had a great Easter and I hope you did too!  The weather was perfect and I was lucky enough to spend it with my family.  My mom, who is 94 years young, was here along with my brother and my son.  We had lots of yummy food and treats, great conversation and a good time.  I miss those days when my kids were little and we were hiding Easter eggs....I'm about ready for some grand babies!  Hint....

We were off on spring break for part of this week, but we came back on Wednesday ready to learn.  We spent the week learning about Oviparous Animals. This is such a fun unit and the firsties loved it! Here's a sneak can check out my full blog post here (includes a FREEBIE).

We have BABIES!  I ordered some little caterpillars online last week and they have been busy eating and eating! They have quadrupled their size and should be ready to spin their chrysalis any time! We are so excited for them to change into butterflies!  Have you ever tried this in your room?  Here's the link, in case you want to order some too.  They usually arrive in just a couple of days!

I hit a little mini milestone this week.....I opened up my Instagram the other day and saw that I had surpassed 700 followers! What???? That made my heart happy to know that over 700 people like the stuff we do in Firstieland. If you are one of those followers I want to give you a big SHOUT OUT 👏 and THANK  YOU!  If you'd like to join up, you can find me @firstieland. 

Last,  I always like to leave you with my little Friday now that spring break is over......
