I'm jumping in with both feet and joining the fun. Thanks, Farley!

MUSIC: I've been playing a beautiful CD of classical guitar music during writing. I absolutely love it, but do you think I can remember the name of it?

So my other musical choice is the song "Vampire Buddies".  My kids can't get enough of it. It's on the September/October CD from 2009 (I think) that comes with the Music K-8 magazine. If you don't know about this resource, check it out! It's seriously good.

  5. Hi Barbara - I really want to try an i Phone too. I like my droid but really want to try the iphone. Our plan isn't up for a while still so we can't switch but when we can I will definitly try it. Oh by then they will probably be making the iPhone 7 or something. LOL

  6. I love, love my iPhone. I had one a year ago and gave it back after a weekend. I tried it again, in June (after my son and friends said I needed it for my pictures) and I love it. The camera is really good and I love that I can sync my iPhone and my iPad together. Now, I want a MAC, ugghh.
