So today, the day before vacation, I must admit I feel that my students are more productive than me. Honesty sometimes hurts. My students are working so hard right now in groups on recycled art projects. I hear them talking about everything under the sun and working. Who knew they would multi-task the day before a holiday. I, on the other hand, have three things on my mind: An amazing concert that I attended (listening to the artist now- my students are listening to the radio), shopping for a pair of fabulous boots this afternoon, and going blonde tomorrow. I guess the first thing to do is admit it, and now perhaps, I will move on and keep on task like my students!

Today Mr. Russell has been in speaking to my photo students on the use of Lightroom in photography. If you have never looked into this program, it will change the way you work with images. I am crossing my fingers that at some point my students will have the ability to work in this program as much as photoshop.

So I live on one of those trick or treat streets. That when the dark takes over here come the the masses of spidermen, hanna montanas, and creepy things that don't have names. It is always funny to see whose light goes off first which means they have simply run out of candy. I shopped in bulk this year and finally made it to a quarter till when it was gone. The trick or treaters all come in different shapes and sizes and I love the look of shock and horror from those parents who are walking their children up and down the streets when they see a car pull up in front of my home and piling out are flight attendants, rocks stars, witches, and divas. My high school kids. It is a tradition to come to my house and every year I buy special treats for them. I love seeing them dressed up heading out to have fun and visit those that know them. But the initial shock of parents is almost amusing. They look slightly angry to see them out, as if they might take candy that belongs to their kids, when they know good and well most of it will end up in the trash in a couple weeks anyway. I encourage my students to be creative and have fun being kids... they grow up too fast, too soon!
