The Big 30

Well,I celebrated my 3oth birthday on the weekend. I can't believe that I hit this big number. But really it is just a number. I had a great day, as I spent some time with my sister she treated me to lunch and we went to the scrapbooking story. It was very lovely. They had this 50% off sale as part of their 10 years in business, so everything in the story was half off. I couldn't resist a deal. Especially since I just reccently designed the wedding invitation. I got some great gooodies. Upon return home I spent a lovely time in the backyard in Mom and Dad's Gazebo visiting. THen I went online laptop shopping and ended up purchasing a new laptop. It was time I bought one as I really needed it for scool. Afterall I am doing a Master's in instructional design and technology. I have been spending the last two nights now getting it all set up. I am looking forward to having on Thursday for my class, as we are learning out to design an interactive teaching tool with adobe flash. We are given demos and it would be great to be able to use my laptop to do all this.

Now I have two computers. I remember when we got our first computer at home it was such a big deal. Now I own two of them. Really what is next I tell you what is next!

Master's Program Startup

Well, my month off from school has gone by very very fast. I can't believe that it is already time to go back. My first class is this Thursday. The course is called Cognitive Tools. I already have a reading assignment due on Thursday and the class hasn't even started.

I will complete the reading assignment tomorrow though. Having a look at the course outline, it looks like I have my work cut out for me this semester. Lots of small assignments. However, once school is out. It will be much easier to get those done and out of the way, and then I will have the rest of the day to enjoy my summer holiday.

Things are hopping at work. I introduced my project the Explorer's Website today. The students seem to be very excited about the work they will be doing for this project. I have put them into the role of Documentaries. It should make for a very fun project. They were laughing at how silly the word sounds. But, the project will be a success. Here is a link if you are interested in checking it out.

The students will finish up there first assignment and will be ready for the first slide on Thurday. They already have the skeleton or shell completed of the project, so all they have over the course of the remaining weeks is adding the information that they have learned. May Day is in full boar. Next week will be our first rehearsal at the park. The following week will be the actual event. So, it will be qutie the busy Month.

Special Activities that I am looking forward to include:

- Mother's Day
- Andrei's Birthday
- My Birthday
- Scrapbook Class

Well, I hope all is well with my fellow reader's!

Take Care of to watch the Hills.

Family Wordbook Page Kits

Well, I received some exciting news this week. The girl at work who requested me to do a little scrapbook class with her has booked 10 people. Can you believe it! Phew! It is going to be a fun evening. So, I have started putting page kits together this week. We will be making a "Family Wordbook". The base paper is going to be white, and the colour scheme will be grey, pink, grey, and a little bit of green. I am looking quite forward to this class. I am slowly getting the prep done. I have 4 completed kits, and have the wordbook pages to make for the other six. It is taking some time to get it organized, but I am having fun just playing in my room.

However, I keep salvating over the card box below, as I really want to make that project. I think I will try to squeeze it in next week before my first class starts. I am going to be going back to school on Thursday until the end of June. I am hoping for a fun class, and hope to recognize many of the other students from my cohort.

Well, I have a bit more browsing to do and then I am off to bed!
