This time it's all about Me....

There are a few reasons I'm updating my blog again so soon. One, I want to keep up my blog more often. Two, I want to get back to showing off my students' artwork on here. I have a Photobucket accnt linked to my class website, but I didn't want to link it on here. I'd rather pull some good examples off of there and post them on here. I hope to have that post next week. Third, I tend to just show a million pictures when I haven't updated, and I think a little bit of substance is in order this time. Fourth, I should be preparing a big new lesson for both Basic and Advanced students tomorrow, and I'm procrastinating (though I have gotten a lot more done there than I should have). Fifth, I want my blog to be a good personal journal with stuff I'm willing to share publicly. My inner thoughts and more private stuff is stashed in other places. haha

Anyway, my pea friend Nicole, had this on her blog, so I thought I'd steal it and use it. She got it from someone else who inspired her, so it's all good.
