May has arrived!

Wow! It's hard to believe its May already.  I feel like just a few weeks ago school was starting and now here I am counting down the days til the year is over. 

I have been busy working on 3 Master's classes for the last two months and am anxiously awaiting my grades.  This week I started two more classes and am getting closer to my degree!  After these last two classes I will have to complete my portfolio and a final capstone project. 

Derek has also been working on online classes.  He is close to finishing one of his classes.  His work has been very busy helping providing video footage for several crimes a week. 

The weather has been a very bipolar these past few months. We even had 2 tornadoes hit just a few miles from our apartment complex.  I am anxiously awaiting some nice weather to make use our apartment complex pool!! 

Last month I attended an EdTech IPad Summit in Atlanta.  It was such a great feeling to be in the company of 700 educators who have a passion for technology.  I was able to make some great connections and learn so many new ideas for using IPads within my classroom and other classrooms.  I am planning to hold a few technology learning sessions during the summer for my co-workers.  I also had a chance to visit the Coco-Cola Museum.  I even got to have some Inca-Cola one of my favorite sodas I had on my mission trips to Peru!!!

 I also visited the Atlanta Aquarium
Derek and I also celebrated St. Patrick's Day again this year in New Orleans. We love the St. Patrick's Day Parade!!
