Hello! Happy Friday! Today, we are heading out to see the Musical "School House Rock" put on by the Christian Youth Theater. We are very excited to be going... okay... maybe I am more excited. I bought the dvds of School House Rock and truthfully, my kids thought they were lame. They didn't have anything to do with Star Wars, so what good are they? LOL When they are in the 7th grade they will appreciate the I'm just a Bill and other songs about government... Besides, what could be MORE fun to learning than having a SONG to go with the lesson? Ahhh the beauty of home schooling! I love it!
My husband bought me a new camera and oh my... I LOVE IT. The picture quality is fabulous! I can take the first shot and not have to alter it too much. MARVELOUS. Such a huge time saver. For those of you wondering what kind he bought me it is a Canon Power Shot SX130IS. I do not know a lot about electronics, so what is nice is I can point and shoot. LOL
