It's Friday!!! I am about to share with you something that we do with my kiddos at school. It's a concept I've seen a few of you do around the Blogosphere, but my boss actually came up with this particular format. The Good/Bad/Cool/Ugly. Several of our guys have a hard time remembering/thinking about what past as well as the future. They live forever in the present. This exercise helps them to think about what they've done and to realize it's not all so bad after all!

Oh, and one more thing! Many of our kids are extremely literal. They understand Good/Bad/Happy/Sad. But they have a hard time with words like ugly/cool because they don't always mean the same to other people. Ugly might mean you're hair is messed up, or it could mean you used an ugly word. Cool can mean an ice cold drink, or something awesome! This helps them to think "outside the box" if you will. I will say though, you do have to think a little harder when it comes to what's cool & ugly as opposed to good & bad!

And so now, after your formal introduction... The Good/Bad/Cool/Ugly for my week!

How cute are Kate and William?
Shopping at Gilly Hicks

Happy Anniversary to me and Hubs!

4th of July Awesomeness

Getting 6 cavities filled. That’s what I get for waiting 3 years to go to the dentist! (I blame college)
Paid $500 for Hubby to get new tires.
Cupcakes in a jar
Super Sale at Old Navy

Getting the week off of work! Wheeee!
Hubby has to work on Saturday
Facebook. I’m considering taking another break. I’m tired of the comments people make about what I’m doing. Apparently everyone thought you wanted their opinion about your choice of breakfast cereal?

Well there you have it! Now you have seen the Good, the Bad & the Ugly!
 Have an awesome weekend everyone!!!!

I'm obsessed with Kate and William! And I absolutely love that picture.

That sounds like an awesome idea for your kiddos! Maybe I'll try that with my class this fall for some sort of writing activity. It could work right?

And I gave up facebook for Lent this year and it was really nice. I didn't have any of the mindless comments or anything and I could contact people I wanted to talk to another way on my own time. Sometimes other people found it inconvenient for them, but for me it worked out just fine.
(sorry this was long!)

Much to say about this!
1) I have never seen Will look this good before - the plaid and hat did him right
2) Your anniversary pic is super cute
3) I also have not been to the dentist in a while and am terrified to go
4)Cupcakes in a jar = pure brilliance
5) I took an FB break for a while and it was really nice - I love that chart!
