Maybe a few days late....but I just figured out how to type in a photo image on my iPad thanks to Reyes Remarkable Rants. She commented and shared that post so I downloaded Skitch and created this:


Listening- I am not a big fan of the current country music so when I get the chance (hubby is gone) I turn on the 80s and 90s country on the cable box. 

Loving- My journey over the last 3-4 months with this blog has been amazing. I never dreamed this many people would be interested in what I have to say. Thanks to all of you who follow me!  I have also loved following other blogs and seeing other teachers ideas. I have always believed that teachers should share so they don't have to recreate the wheel. I am blown away with the generosity of these teacher bloggers. 

Thinking- Next week I hope to sit down with my new principal to discuss our plans for the fall. After we talk, I will begin the process of moving my classroom. My new school is less than half a mile away but I drive a Honda Civic and my husband has a Jeep Wrangler so we will have to enlist some help!

Wanting- I got started late on my book hop and am sucked in to the book. However, I have a 2.5 year old who loves to play with mommy so my reading time is cut down to when she is sleeping.  Stay posted for my first post about the book tomorrow.

Needing- Since we have been home from vacation, I'm trying to fight off ants in my kitchen and keep the rest of my house clean. It is a big job when the 2.5 year old enjoys playing with ALL of her toys. But she is a good helper when I ask. She just can't really help do the bathrooms and floors. They usually get the back burner. 

Tips, tricks, hints- Since beginning my blog, I have learned about some cool apps that have been VERY helpful.  I will tell you a little about them:

     *Bloglovin' - This probably needs no explaining since so many bloggers have posted about it. 

     *Skitch - I just found this app from a friend leaving a comment as I told you before. It is very user 

        friendly and only took about 3-4 minutes to create my currently picture above. I love the text font!

     *Posts - I started using The Blogger app to create my posts but it wasn't very user friendly. I found 

        the Posts app and have loved using it. In fact, I'm using it to type this post. It has options to add 

        HTML, pictures, links, font adjustments, and it lets you save a draft or publish. It also keeps track 

        of my unread comments and drafts. 

     *Google Drive - I have learned the importance of this app just this week as I have tried to share some 

        of my products with my giveaway winners. I had to go on TpT and download the documents to save    

        them to Google Drive since I have them saved on a jump drive. I only have access to my iPad at 

        home. It was fast and easy to add a winners email to a document so they would have access. 

Ok...enough from me for today. I hope you enjoy. Don't forget to link up!
