" Thing 2"

I guess I have not ever really thought about the habits or routines of a person who is a succesful lifelong learner. I just assumed it was something that came naturally to some, and maybe it does. From viewing the 7 1/2 steps of a successful learner I learned that I am already doing some of the steps :-) yay! I feel that I am probably the most successful with habit 1- having an end in mind. I am very goal oriented, and it helps me to know where I need or want to end up when working on a helps me feel accomplished and productive when I complete steps. The hardest habit for me is most likely habit 3- viewing challenges as a learning experience and not a problem. Sometimes when life gets crazy it is hard not to get overwhelmed. In the moment I tend to get frustrated instead of stopping to think..."what can I learn from this?"

Thing 3

So many people in my family have asked me to start blogging so they could keep up with Connor (my 10 month old). I have always been to intimidated to try, but after starting one for this project I realize how easy it really is to blog! (although, the instructions pages REALLY helped!!)

Thing 3- part 2

Making the Avatar was so fun. It was like shopping without having to worry about what size you wear! I placed myself in the kitchen, with a baby because when I am home that is where I am spending a good deal of time.

And so it begins....

I am super excited about learning all of the web 2.0 tools! They will be a great help to me in my current classroom, and in my future library :-)
