It's time to think about school again!

The whole first semester of this year flew by. I've been terrible about blogging and about keeping up with the million blogs I follow. This break is just what I needed but it's almost over=(

I'm setting a goal to post on my blog at least twice a month, that sounds easy enough. But warning, this post is going to be random.

I got a new camera for Christmas so I should be taking tons of pictures! But here's a little problem I have - I got a very nice digital camera but I was thinking about one day getting a DSLR. So should I just go on and get the DSLR? I have no clue how to use them. To all of you who do have fancy cameras, do you love them? Are they easy to figure out? Are they worth the money? Is it a pain to carry around the lenses and other extras? Thanks for any advice!

On to school stuff...I know it's late, but I have to show off the cutest parent gifts ever!

We worked long and hard on these guys.  A very sweet dad cut and sanded all the wood for us (what will I do without him next year?!) I got the idea from pinterest of course!

For the new year, here's something I made on Vistaprint yesterday (I love their freebies!). These are the size of business cards and I'll use a little star shaped hole-punch to punch each box when a goal (or a level or step) is met.
They'll tie in with the new year and resolutions and such. Too bad these little cards won't get shipped in time for next week. I may make some to print out to use immediately. If I do I'll post them. I have a few little ones who had behvaior charts and this would be a nice way to earn rewards for meeting their behavior goals. I may also use these for academic goals or even for whole class goals.

That's all I had to share for now. I'm off to the library to pick up the last of the Hunger Games books. I loved the first two so much and can't wait to read this one! I may be up all night reading=) And seriously, let me know what you think about the cameras.
