TOGETHER has power.

A few years ago I watched a very moving video during a professional development meeting at school. This particular meeting was one where you actually take something away from the session and enjoy the message being taught. It was about togetherness and how together we can make a difference. That's one thing that I've learned about being a teacher- you can't do it all on your own. The saying is true to me, "It takes a village to raise a child."

On one of my most recent trips back and forth between Columbia and Raleigh I noticed a billboard that had a picture of this man and his son with "Team Hoyt" and I thought of this video that I had watched at that particular professional development meeting. I searched on the internet to find it, and there it was!

I wanted to share it with you because I think you'll enjoy it as much as I do. Get a kleenex- everytime I watch it I need one!

What to do with all these pictures?

So if you know anything about me, then you know that I LOVE to take pictures! :) I have 2 of these large photo storage containers full of photographs as well as a few of the smaller versions of these boxes as well. But when I have some down time I like to showcase my most favorite images in a scrapbook.


I can even personalize the cover and binder of my scrapbook...

Here's some late night randomness for you! I saw this on a someone else's blog and thought it was really cool.
This is how the game works: You type in your answer to each question in Google image search. Then, out of only the first page of results, choose your favorite or most random image.

It's interesting the kinds of things that pop up when you search your answer!
