Pictures without a Camera

I put my camera in the car this morning, as put my things in the car to go to work. I have not done this in months, but something about the cool, fall air and the tumbling, crunching leaves, prompted me to grab it as I walked out the door.But I never used it.I still took pictures. A few pictures as a matter of fact.The first picture I took:...more

Choir Chatter: Notebooks

Fed up with the scraps of paper/worksheets getting thrown in the trash, I wanted something that students would hopefully reference and grow from, so we began with notebooks.  After a positive experience last year, I recommend using notebooks in your choir or general music classroom, especially at the secondary level.  In the age of Common Core, incorporating writing is extremely important, and I’ve found that my students generally enjoy it.  ...more

Daylight Savings NIGHTMARE

When we turned back our clocks this past weekend, I certainly did not gain an hour of sleep, rest, or anything like that. In fact, I have lost an hour or two of sleep each night to this monster, daylight savings. My 25 month old twins have been waking up at 3:30 or 4 am, thanks to this so-called 'daylight savings.'

He takes me to another world when we are together. Someplace I’ve never been. It feels like we are the only two people in the world when we are together. Just the two of us; all alone sharing our love that has grown so strongly. He is mine and I am his. I love it when we are like this. This is how it is meant to be. Warm, wonderful, beautiful and enveloping. I get so overwhelmed when he is near I can barely contain my excitement. I want no one else but him. My heart pounds with nervousness and becomes so full of love when he comes around. I just can’t get enough of him....more

A Day In The Life

I was feeling uninspired for a blog post today. Only 6 days into NaBloPoMo and I'm already losing steam. The pressure is on!  How can I stay witty? Engaging enough to keep you stopping by?I almost gave into the idea of a "Wordless Wednesday."  It was a good idea, and it would still work for my commitment, but the way today was going, I was envisioning a page filled entirely with pictures like this:...more

Who Made That? – Website Wednesday

I love learning new things. I love reading about history: of a country, of a culture, of a person. I also love learning how objects or things were invented, the story behind it, the story of the people behind it. So, naturally, this website, Who Made That?, was my choice for Website Wednesday!...more
