Friggle Fraggle

Friday. Finally. How I have missed you!

Just a few highlights from the week:

My new computer has arrived! I have been trying to catch up on some blog reading. I'll continue this weekend. Between football games, of course. :)

Wedding planning is still coming along. So far we have--

  • secured the venue
  • secured the caterer
  • secured the DJ
  • secured their choice of wedding photographer
  • talked to the cake lady
  • gotten a line on the photo booth
  • secured a cottage at the venue for the girls to stay in the night before and night of the wedding
  • gotten close to decisions about flowers
  • chosen bridesmaids dresses (girls to order this month)
  • purchased the wedding dress (it's already here!)
  • secured the officiant
  • delegated the making of the 'Save the Dates' and invitations to Breezy and her talented self
  • secured my photographer choice for engagement photos and bridal portraits
Not a bad start. We will be choosing the linens, etc. in a week or so. And the final details will come as we get closer to the day. But we're well on our way!

I'll leave y'all with a very sweet tale that happened at school today.

When my fourth graders came into the lab this morning, there were only about 15 of them since the others were in chorus. They were being so well behaved, that I told them they could sit wherever they wanted to sit. There are only four computers per row and there were five boys headed for one row. The last one in realized he wasn't going to be able to have a seat. He didn't say anything, he just got a sad look on his face and headed off to another row. The last boy on that row noticed the sad face on his friend, left his seat and went over to sit beside him. Sweetest gesture I've seen all week. Yes, I talked to him and told him that I noticed what a wonderful friend he is. I also told the principal who mentioned to the boy that she heard what a good friend he was today. 

I just love it when I get to witness kindness like that! 

That's it for now. I hope y'all have a fabulously fall weekend! 

YIKES! It's NOVEMBER1 and I totally forgot about NaBloPoMo! Thank goodness Mrs. 4444s is doing it and put it on her Friday Fragments post! Whew! 

November NaBloPoMo


  1. What a sweet friend that boy is. Thanks for sharing tale with us.
    Sounds like your making great progress on the wedding. They are so much fun!

  2. Debby- Isn't he? I was so proud of him! Weddings are fun most of the time. They are certainly looking forward to it!

  3. You have just about done everything that needs doin' for the wedding! Wow!!

    What a wonderful story about the young man in your class, and how great that you noticed his gesture and were able to reinforce his behavior!! A proud moment!

  4. I just love when you see a child showing compassion for another. How sweet. I think it's good to praise them for a nice gesture too. So often all they hear is the negative comments. Sounds like you have a great start on wedding plans! Have a fabulous weekend!

  5. You're very organised, when is the wedding?
    I love it too when I witness the kids being nice, and they don't know anyone's watching. They can do it sometimes, or at least most of them can!

  6. Love a kind and compassionate child... And wow, you've got a ton done so far! Keep up the good work :)

  7. Stories like that make me melt! Love it. Boy, you guys are on the ball with the wedding plans. That's great.

  8. When a student on my bus does something for another I'll make sure I say something. It is awesome the kids out there care for others.
    I have never been to a wedding like what you're planning. Ours have always been quiet, small and family. I love hearing about yours.

  9. My best friends daughter is getting married in January, and Im learning all the amazing details!! Oy !!!!
    I love when young kids do kind acts!! So many times we hear about the negative!!

  10. Having read the comments above - You said weddings are fun most of the time. I think they should be fun all of the time but things can go wrong. I've had great fun at weddings but planning a wedding, I don't see how that could ever be much fun.
    That is a great example of friendship. Thanks for sharing it.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It makes me feel connected to everyone even though we may live far apart! Have a wonderful day!
