Saturday Snapshots

I'm joining Run! Miss Nelson's Got the Camera blog for her installment of:  Saturday Snapshots. 

I don't know about you, but I'm constantly taking pictures of everything.  I think this is in part that I'm a visually learner and after I leave a workshop/classroom I can't quite put it right in my head unless I have a picture.  Do you do this too or am I the only weirdo out there snapping pics at Wal-Mart and teacher conferences?

Anyway, back on I was happy to participate in this linky party!  Saturday was great because it was tax free weekend!  Alexandra and I were on the search for uniform skirts and shirts.  She has some from last year that still fit and work, but I like to have 7 tops and 7 bottoms for her.  So we were on the look out for 2 more tops and bottoms.  We finally found 2 tops that she deemed cool enough to wear to school (Did I mention she's a teenager?) only to discover the top she wanted was 5 times more expensive than the polos that our budget allows.  So after a brief conversation, she decided to spend her own money to get the shirt she wanted.

Then after a brief nap, we went to my parents house and did a little swimming!  I'm on weight watchers and I'm trying to do a little exercise everyday.  I ran in the pool for 20 minutes and then Alexandra and I had free style races. 

I'd like to say I did some work on something for my classroom, but I plan on finishing up a color recognition book for Monday Made It tomorrow.

What did you do this last weekend before school? 



  1. I feel weird too. I'm always taking pictures everywhere I go. I feel really weird when I take pictures of food.
    Thanks for linking up.

    1. @Miss Nelson I take pictures of food for weight watchers and I'm glad I'm not the only one! :)
