A couple years ago, a friend and I were talking about building community among students and their families and we brainstormed the idea of a potluck breakfast. So I made up a movie of all the pictures I had taken throughout the year and made a movie. It took me forever because I didn't have a clue what I was doing, I didnt' know which songs to use, and Windows Movie Maker (when I finally discovered it) wasn't that user friendly. I burned the movie onto 30 DVDs and invited all the parents to come. It was fabulous...very touching and I then realized that this was a tradition that had to be continued. So this year for the third time, we are going to do our breakfast. I used the new MacBook to make the movie and it was a snap. I made the movie, burned it onto 21 DVDs in less than 5 hours. The kids liked it when they watched it last week. Each student gets a copy of the DVD (they don't know until they get it tomorrow that they each get a copy). It is a great time:)
The weather here has been crazy! 103 for two days and today was about 100 with 30-50 mph winds. I started to worry about the dogs being in their kennel with the high heat so I broke down and let them stay in the house today. They have a dog door so they could go outside if they wanted. I picked up and moved most things that I thought Ms. Ruby might decide to snack on, crossed my fingers and went to work. When I got home the only thing out of place was a rock that had been brought inside. It didn't even look like Ruby had gone on the couch. I was so excited. We will try it again tomorrow.
More stamping to come soon, I have all next week off and some new stamps coming this week!
