I can do it!

Now this doesn't look like a rowdy bunch of ladies does it?  No ... I didn't think so.  Ok we used our inside voices most of the time. (See my previous post for links to all their blogs)  From the back there's me, Chrissy, Meredith, (table) Katie and Deedee.

 I am still on a big learning curve with this blogging thing.  My computer is a dinosaur and so I am currently using my son's computer to create this post. (No it is not fair that his computer is better than mine, but he knows more about it than I do - he's 12 - help me ...)

At the lunch I learned how to use Power Point to make fun slides.  I did this one really quick, but I see more in my future (thanks for the pic Chrissy).

I learned a lot more from these ladies as well and I have been on a real high.
 Today reality smacked me in the face ... a little - assessments, assemblies, "grown ups" (acting like children - I will stick with the real thing, thank you very much).  But I'm not going to let it get me down.

Kristin at A Teeny Tiny Teacher posted a scripture yesterday that I read this morning:

"Do everything without complaining and arguing so that no one can criticize you."  Philippians 2:14.

It helped ... a little... I work at a Christian school ... I may post this on the wall.


  1. I can totally relate! I don't work at a christian school but I try to keep everything in perspective of the big picture - what does God want me to do! Things can be going so great and then I get to work and it all falls apart, I have to keep this scripture in mind all the time! Glad I found your blog, looks like you ladies had a lot of fun!

  2. You are a step ahead of me--I haven't tried the Powerpoint tip, yet! I feel your pain regarding the youngsters getting the best tech gadgets in the family. I am the ONLY member of my fan without a smart phone! How is that fair?! Do they have a blog? Do they have a Pinterest account? I don't think so!! (J/K~~I luv my children!)

    BTW, our last day is May 18 and spring break is March 26-30. I really want to visit your classroom. Let me know if anything seems doable!

  3. ooops. I meant "in my fam" ---silly spell check!
