FIVE for FRIDAY... the week from you-know-where...

This is going to be a quick post, just to share some happy things from the week. This week has been awful for me. The hubs was admitted to the hospital on Monday for an infection in his leg and he is still there... five days later. There is a chance he might be able to come home tomorrow, so we are praying for good news. Single parenting + 2nd to last week of school + 2 small kids (3.5 yrs and 19 months) + my son's gymnastics and hockey classes + my own physical therapy (3x a week) + going to see the hubs at the hospital, which is 35 miles from our house + dog responsibilities = one lady on the brink of snapping.  I just keep seeing this:

Anyway. The good stuff :)

My chair pockets are 5 years old and have seen better days. My mom has been on the look out for new fabric, and she found this Sunbrella canvas fabric last weekend:
Beautimous, right?! Best news: it was $6/yard! This stuff normally sells for $30-$70/yard!!! I can't wait to get started making them!

OK, it's not until next Thursday, but we busted out our frame so we could get the pictures taken so we can send home on the last day of school. My teammies and I were having a little too much fun with the frame...

On the last Friday of the year, we have a little celebration. I didn't take many pictures, but here's one of my faves:
It's one of my bunnies participating in a relay race. They had run across the gym and pop a balloon with their tushies, and then run back. ACTION SHOT!

At our celebration, there is alway a special snack time. Normally it's a freeze pop, but this year our principal upped her game. WE ALL GOT PUSH POPS!!
My teammies! We were all VERY excited about the Push Pops!
OMGoodness I don't remember the last time I had a Push Pop, and it was SO tasty!!! Some of my kids didn't like theirs and threw them away. A little piece of my heart was thrown away with every unfinished Push Pop that ended up in the trash...

Don't forget! Every Thursday! No rules... well OK, one rule. No paid products. But that's it!
