Friday Fragments: Episode #305

Half-Past Kissin' Time

Summer Fragments call for a summery blog button.
(And a summery header, of course, but first things first.]
Let's frag.


My summer vacation starts today; it was a long school year, thanks to a spring break (we have one every other year) and four snow days. I have four days worth of math trainings to attend in the next couple of weeks, so it'll be hard to totally unplug from school this month, but I'm grateful for the time I do have.

In July, I have our Mexico trip to look forward to, plus these cuties are coming for a visit.

I'm so excited!

A while back, I mentioned having a shoulder issue. It's not better, and I'm beginning to understand how people with medical issues get depressed; it's frustrating to feel pain when doing the simplest movements. I did find physical therapy helpful, but I didn't take time to follow through with the exercises I was given; it's worse than ever, now. Now that summer's here, I'm going to dedicate myself to doing the exercise,s and am praying that I don't have to consider surgery. Fingers crossed...

I started watching Breaking Bad a few days ago via Netflix. I can see why people are addicted to that show (no pun intended).
I posted this awesome #throwbackthursday photo today on Facebook. 

It's my beautiful mother and four of my five older siblings who'd been born by then, 1960. She is very likely pregnant in the photo, since my four brothers are all about 18 months apart.

Speaking of cool photos, I made an awesome slideshow for the last day of school. In September, I took a photo of each of our sixth graders standing up against a wall that had measurements on it. Last week, I took another photo of each student against the same wall. Then I spent a bajillion
hours putting the photos together and making the slideshow. I hadn't realized how time consuming it would be to make one slide for each of 80 students, and I'll probably never do it again, but here's one of the best slides; check out how much this kid grew in nine months!

Enough about school; I've earned my break!

Got fragments? Feel free to link up below! I'm off to do my exercises!
