Our Little Magicians

Hello All,

My wife shot this footage while I was at school. I had to share it with you. I used my movie making software (PowerDirector) and this is what we came up with. I hope you laugh as hard as we did. Watch closely, they do the funniest things. The preview is my little Z. He discovered he was covered in hair. Great exchange between him and my wife. Not the exact exchange, but really close. (I had approval from my wife!)



On a separate note, we had our guest author, Elysabeth Eldering, in the class today (Google talk rocks). I am excited to HOST HER BOOK NEXT MONTH HERE! But enough of that. Her visit went very well. We almost finished our Harris Burdick pictures. I am so thankful to have found someone that is interested in helping students. She has even inspired me to pull out some of my old stories that I started years ago. Not really with the hope of getting them published, just simply to delve back into the world of writing. (Although being published might be really fun). Tomorrow we have the Clark Planetarium coming to our school. That is going to be really fun. I am also pleased to announce that I have finished my MailBox assignments. Not in submission form, but in rough draft. They should easily be ready to mail by Thursday. YEA!

Well, I have lots to do still. Book Club reading for school (I am a member of a after school book club for teachers- we read books to help us be better language arts teachers), and a math endorsement class assignment to work on, not to mention that I still have to do my CORE Academy project to get college credit as well. So, as you can see, lots to do. Have a great night-



  1. Ok, the video of your daughter making your son disappear is HILARIOUS!! You can totally see him the whole time..that is so cute and so funny! Send that in the AFV!! No kidding!

  2. I loved it - they were so cute. If she keeps practicing, she'll have it down and no one will see him disappear. I think your Halloween music is overtaking the video so may want to turn it off for the video.

    Your kids are so adorable. Your daughter already knows the trick is having a place to escape for that magic trick so watch out, she may become a master magician. Thanks for sharing with us.

    I am really enjoying being in class with you, although I'm not really doing much, just writing with the students. Giving an occasional note or hint. I think Thursday's class will be fun. I can't wait to see what the kids come up with for our little "side project". (Don't check my blog yet, as I haven't posted today's work; been playing catchup with my work (almost there - but I'm not complaining - it will all be caught up by Friday night which is the end of the payperiod and looks like it will be a good one for me). See you in the postings - E :)

  3. holy crap you're kids are big!!!!!!!! :o) you've been holding out on me with the whole blog thing-- lol.... does your wife have one too, that she's been holding out on??
