In 2009, I was encouraged by my friends to give the 365 photo project a try. I love taking photos, and was excited about participating. The daily posts paint a brief picture of my year and open my eyes to the beauty around me. It is challenging to post a photo daily. I was successful in 2009 and 2010, but fell a few short in 2011. I'll be continuing my quest for daily photos in 2012 and look forward to sharing them here.
I subbed again today for the music teacher at the school I retired from. She is out unexpectedly as she recovers from emergency surgery. The lack of plans allowed me some latitude. Since the 2nd graders have been learning the names & families of the instruments in an orchestra, I decided to use a great website with them. Lucky for us, the computer lab was open during the first hour of school when two second grade classes have music. They had fun learning more about the instruments & hearing what they sound like using www.nashvillesymphony.org/nsokids/.
