Beauford is Kenya Bound!!!!
"We" are soooo excited! Beauford and I have been wanting to go to Africa for years! We've been to all the continents except Africa and Antartica. Now we get to cross out Africa from our "bucket list" LOL
We will be in Mombasa, Kenya for about two weeks. I think we will be in two schools. We are going on a mission trip with a super, super group called Imani Tumaini Upendo, which means Faith, Hope, Love.
Hope to post from there as often as possible. Keep us and the group in your prayers.
Would you like to be a Fred?
I would like to invite you to embark on a 30 day "experiment" with me. Allow me to explain. Today I received my copies of Mark Sanborn's new book Fred 2.0 http://www.fred2book.com/ and with it, as a special offer bonus, came a wonderful toolkit. The toolkit included a feature titled 30 Days of Fred. It is a list of 30 things a person can do to be a Fred. If you are not familiar with Fred, you need to find a copy of Mark's book The Fred Factor. The name of the book comes from Mark's mail carrier, Fred, who performs in an extraordinary way a job that we might consider ordinary! Fred has a passion for his job and shows it!
So, in the spirit of that Fred, I'm inviting and encouraging you to rethink how you feel at what you do- be it work for hire, ie. "job"; work for love ie. stay at home mom (or dad).
I will be posting daily beginning on April 17th (I'm allowing a few days for "word of mouth" advertising:)
If you participate, please share your experiences. Not to brag, but rather to share how this "experiment" is changing you.
Made a notebook cover
Every year, I try to keep a notebook of workshops, webinars, training, etc. I attend. So, I decided to create a cover for this year's notebook with the My Memories Suite 3 software
This is what it looks pasted on the notebook to make a new, better looking cover! I think I will laminate it for durability!

Meet Beauford T. Bear
Meet Beauford T. (for Teddy) Bear. For more than 15 years he has sat in the classroom, reigning as the class mascot. He has provided countless hours of help and support for the students and opened the world to them. Beauford has traveled to all the continents except Africa and Antarctica. Armed with his own passport, camera and journal, he has documented sights around the world and shared them with my students. At the end of each school year they asked where he would go that summer, and as the new school year started they eagerly awaited his "report". This report usually included a souvenir for each of them and a treat from the country or countries visited. The experiences they lived through Beauford gave them the opportunity to enlarge their world a little. As for me, traveling with Beauford has opened some amazing doors! Hopefully, through this pages we will share pictures and memories of our travels together.
