I finally know how to use my camera.
Some of us went out for dinner with our teacher.
We use her first name.
We laugh about the first day.
F-stops and Aperture.
I have two papers due in English.
I'll probably write at least 10 pages.
I can't work on them until Saturday though.
Friday I have an in class exam for Archaeology.
I think that last one I wrote at least 7 pages.
I love it.
I have all my classes for the next two quarters all ready to go.
I will miss photography.
But, I will do more.
I have plans.

Cartoon Guide to Statistics
We have been watching a series of DVD's on the west from PBS.
The West from PBS. There are lesson plans on the website, as well.
Cartoon History of the United States
This is a very funny book. My oldest is really enjoying it. I'll try to get around posting some of his other books because they are just amazing! They are in comic book format. I know this aren't high enough literature for some, but I love books like this because they spark the interest in people and events. G will just be reading along..."Hey can we google this guy?"

Steven the Vegan I just want to note, yesterday in my Photography class we were discussing going out to eat after our final class and someone mentioned a steak house. "I'm a vegetarian."
"They have a salad bar!"
"Do you eat seafood?"
Dead animal=Had a face, Had a mom
Why are there still people who call themselves vegetarians and eat fish? I don't care if you want to eat plants, but you can't say that's all you eat and then eat fish.
Another video Making Vegan Pizza
This one made my sons really laugh. It's a bit Pythonish ya know. If you let kids watch it you might want to pull the screen over to hide the tags on the right hand side. Vegan Pig
