I love rainbows. Here is one from flickr. I'm not a good camera person, so flickr is a great site to find some interesting pictures.

Thing 4 - Done!!

THINGS 1,2, 3 and 4

OK, here goes my tracking. I am excited about the program for staff and got a chance today to sit in the session at North Point. It was so dynamic, there were around 10-12 staffers working on different Things. I really liked the habits of lifelong learners, especially 7 (Teach and mentor others-which I observed so much this morning) and 7 1/2 (Play!)
I've been hit...I'm going down...
2 dogs 2 kid 2 tired got me.

Here's how it works: Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, and then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged, and asking them to read your blog to find out how it works!

So 8 facts about me....hmmm....

1. I have a twin and as far as I can tell, neither of us is evil
2. I have two wonderful kids, just became an "empty nester", and am not sure how I feel about it.
3. Both my husband and I have the same profession, making dinner conversation very interesting.
4. My dream vacation is Hawaii...someday
5. I just signed up for a belly dancing class!
6. Next year marks my 10th anniversary in the same job; I love my job
7. I collect Pez dispensers
8. The older I get, the more I appreciate that I have 3 sisters.
9. I have milked a cow, bottle fed lambs and watched roosters "fly up" for the night.
10.My retirement job will be school crossing guard.

So here is who I am tagging:
beach dreamer
cat lover
cuter than u
Debbie's list
let them eat chocolate
not only for kids

Taking baby steps

Today was my first experience creating a blog. I felt so inadequate. One of our fantastic BCPL staff members supporting this learning experience helped me navigate through the tall grass and now I've done it! I still need to read all the fine print to fully appreciate and understand exactly what I did and promise to do so. It's like my father-in-law's credo-you must read the manual three times before putting something together or operating any machinery. I'm optimistic it will sink in.
