New Orleans

I had a great opportunity this month to go to the Plain Talk About Reading Institute in New Orleans.  It was a great trip.  I was able to learn more specifics about teaching reading and it really helped me feel more comfortable in my position as a Title 1 reading intervention teacher.  While in New Orleans we had some extra time and we were able to go on a swamp tour.  The best part was getting to see the alligators close up!  Here are a few of my favorite pictures.

And here is a video of the alligator that came up close for some food!

Happy Birthday!

Robby and I both had birthdays recently and Natalie has started singing happy birthday.  In this video she is singing to her daddy.  I hope you enjoy it as much as Robby and I do!
