Blog Memories

Hopefully you have heard of, The 3am Teacher.  She has amazing graphics, frequently has freebies, and I always look forward to her posts!  She is having a linky party celebrating her one year blog-i-versary.
Bloggers are sharing their 1st year blogging memories.  I can not wait to read other people's memories.  I love all the bloggy friends that I have made and talk about you all like I have met you in person. 
Here is my blog Memory:
I regularly snap pictures in my class, for this little blog, for weekly newsletters, and for an end of the year slideshow.  My students know I blog and that I read blogs....because teachers practice reading and writing too.  Often I will show them some of the ideas from your blogs, so the see some student examples of what I am asking them to do.  So one day I was taking pictures of some project we were doing.  The student who I took the picture started beaming and I asked him what he was so happy about.  His answer, "You are going to put that picture on the blog.  I am going to be famous!  Some kid somewhere else will see my work and know what to do.  Just like a real artist."  Oh how I love kids!
Your turn....share your story and go link up.
Happy Sunday,
