Okay, so I have my author friend and she was trying to make a book trailer. I didn't realize how popular these book trailers have become. Well, I took her basic idea and using my movie software and my creative skills (a hobby that I am becoming more attached to all the time), I recreated her idea. I think that I would actually consider doing this for authors as a side job. Let me know what you think (AND get the books and read them).Here is my work in all its glory:
I also wanted to share this video that my wife's cousin made. I thought it was hilarious. He is serving a mission for the LDS church in Russia. They used puppets they use to teach school age kids to teach about anti-drug behavior, etc. My kids would watch it all day if they could. (The song is "I hope they call me on a mission". Enjoy!
Aside from all this exciting movie making, I am currently struggling to get my reading done. It really isn't a matter of not enough time, but rather a lack of desire. But, I will get it done.
We are excited to have my wife's sister come and visit today. It is always nice to have her and her little family here. So, I guess I should go and get reading.
Na, this is more fun. The weather has been a little bizarre here today. It didn't make it over 72 degrees today. The part that is strange is that it hasn't been under 90 degrees during the day until after 10pm, so I am almost cold, believe it or not.
Tomorrow marks the first day of International Speak Like a Pirate Week. (It is actually supposed to be a Pirate Day (Sept. 19th), but I like to decorate the room and do pirate activities.) This year the kids are even doing a "famous pirate" report. We'll see how that works.
I guess I really SHOULD go. I just remembered that I still have to make a report guide sheet to help my students know what information they need to gather about their famous pirate. If I survive this week, we will be on an upward swing (queen pageant will be over, presentation in my class will be over, 4 page paper will be written...etc, etc, etc)
My daughter is involved with the puppets at her church as well. She also plays her flute every once in a while and does some signing to some songs (made up signing I think). She is into her music. I hope she stays with it. It was hard to understand the words in the song but it was a cute video.ReplyDelete
