The prompt this week over at Create a Connection for Thursday Photo Day was WATER. I took 2 pictures today:

And then I thought of all my other great "water" pics that I wanted to post, as well:

Destin Commons

the beach at Pelican Beach Resorts, Destin

I was trying to get a picture of a crab - do you see him?

water bottles for my preschool class to take on the playground

a fire hydrant in the middle of nowhere

my class wanted to wash the dishes in the kitchen center last week

This is a closeup of the carnation in the bouquet I got at preschool graduation from one of my little boys.

I found another site to help me with coming up with material to photograph: 26 Things. It's a photo scavenger hunt with a new list of (get this) 26 things every 2 months. I'm not going to commit to getting everything on the list every time, or posting my collection to their flickr group. But it does give me more subject matter.

My classroom is like a ghost town this week - I've gone from 13 students to only 6. It's rather surreal.

This week's theme: Cooked/Cooking

I made my world-famous (well, ok, maybe world famous is a bit of an exaggeration) spaghetti for lunch. And, as always, I got sauce on my shirt. I never can fix this meal without wearing it. Maybe I need an apron.

Vacation Pics

First of all, a big thank you and hello to everyone from the Photo Hunt who commented last week on my "Childhood" photos. I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to visit everyone then and thank you properly, but as you may be able to tell from the title of this post, I've been out of pocket this week. Now it's time to get caught up on Project 365.

The view from the balcony of unit #402 at the Pelican Beach Resort in Destin, FL - sorry for the poor quality that my cell phone delivers. There seems to be a greenish tint to every pic I take with my cell phone.

After a wonderful lunch at Fudpucker's, we decided we couldn't leave without seeing the 'gators - they have over 100 in their alligator habitat underneath the restaurant's outdoor deck. Admission to the attraction? Free. Again, sorry for the poor quality - I forgot my camera when we left the resort that day.

I now present for your salivation the world's best milkshakes EVAR! Johnny Rockets is right next to the cinema at Destin Commons. They bring you your shake in the glass AND the excess in the mixer cup. So you get 2 shakes for the price of 1 (the price of 1 $5 shake, that is - but it's worth it)!

Another pic I took with my cell phone. It was just such a beautiful morning on the beach and I wanted to be able to take it with me everywhere, so this is the new wallpaper on my phone. I was going to record the ocean as a voice memo to play back whenever I wanted, but I never got around to it.

The dolphins paraded past our resort several times each day - they swim so close to the shore! Mesmerizing creatures.

The pool at the resort. This pic really doesn't do it justice because of the lighting, but for some reason the Night mode on my camera ends up blurring everything. If you can't tell, that's a fountain with 2 dolphins.

Our sunset beach treks were great for spotting ocean life - can you find the crab in this pic? Gotta move fast to catch those little buggers on film - they bury themselves with lightning speed.

Here it is. The saddest part of any vacation. Packing it all up and going home. Yes, all of that stuff is really for just Hubby and me.

baseball season

This week's theme: Childhood

All but one of the kids in my class were old enough to sign up for baseball this season, so of course there was a baseball in today's show-and-tell.

Water Break

This week's theme: Childhood

It's starting to get warmer outside around here. So we have water bottles to take on the playground in the afternoon.

boundless energy

This week's theme: Childhood

My boys - they wear me out, but I do love them. They are playing a game they like to call "Finish Line" - that's what they call a race.

dig it

This week's theme: Childhood

Yes, that is purple sand in our sand table. Why? I do not know.
