TESTING 1....2.....3....

I am on a mission. I want to create a classroom blog so that I can publish my students' writing and artwork. It really is too good to keep to myself! I spent most of the day at a training looking at different web blog sites and tried to decide which one would fit my classroom needs. One of the things that I want to be able to do is publish video. I am going to go with Blogger if I can get video on it. There is a comfort in going with what you know. SO....Nathan gets to be my at-home guinea pig. If I can get this video of him up on this blog, not only will you be entertained by the musical stylings of Nate the Great, but you will soon see another blog about my terrific students!

PS: I am on attempt #2 with minimal success but I will NOT give up! Attempt #3....getting frustrated.....still not giving up......really.

The Best Night Ever

Sunday night I had my family over for dinner. Dave's parents were visiting from Vermont and had brought Jacob with them. Chris came and brought Hannah and Connor and since Monday was NOT a school day, we let the kids play outside well into the darkness. We inevitably collected a neighborhood boy who joined in the fun. I called them inside after it was too dark to see them and was greeted with groans and complaints. When I was tucking Nate into bed, he said to me that it was "the best night ever". It made me think about how many nights my brothers and I would stay out late playing with the other neighborhood kids. Our "best nights ever" included "what time is it Mr. Fox?". Last night it was Nerf War......what are the games you played on your "best nights ever?"
