Aloha Bluebonnets

Gosh, I miss you all. How are you? I'm sure you've heard by now that Janelle had Baby Issac and he's in the NICU at Medical City. He was born at 28 weeks and is doing so well. I'm in Hawaii on the Big Island teaching at the University of Hawaii at Hilo and really enjoying it although Bill and I miss the mainland a lot. Kelly is married to Steve Hastings and is an AP at Martin High School and living in South Lake. Joyce is starting her doc program at TCU and is a literacy coach at FWISD. Scott Floyd has a special tech position in his district of Whiteoak.

We want to hear from all of you and need your help as well in filling out a short survey to help us understand the part the blog played in helping us stay together as a community. Would you take 5 mintues and fill out this survey? If so, click the link below:

Mid Winter Conference

Hi, Everyone! My thoughts were with you during the Midwinter Conference. How did it go? Who came? How was Barbara? I'm down in Houston with Jessica. Her baby is going to be born tomorrow! We needed all weekend to get prepared and have mother/daughter time together so I couldn't be with you, but you were all in my thoughts! Fill me in!

Online Photo Sharing in Plain English

I am double posting this here and here.

To piggyback my previous posts about design and photography and Flickr usage, I would like to offer this short tutorial video about online photo sharing. Thanks to the folks (Lee LeFever) at Common Craft for once again making this an easy to understand topic. So don't let a little fear of a software program slow you down from joining the fun and learning of photo sharing.
