New Bamboo!

This will be SUPER short and sweet! I just got my new Bamboo tablet in the mail! I ordered it so I can try creating my own clip art for my projects and for you guys to pick up on TPT. I've been having fun testing it out tonight and installing all the software. It's all shiny and new! Yippee skippy!!

Tomorrow is book club, so sadly I won't have time to play around with it tomorrow night. The girls and I will be chatting about The Paris Wife and hanging out in the city (San Francisco) for the evening :)

Silly fact of the day: I taught my kindergarten genius boy mixed fractions today. Telling time and regular fractions were too easy, so I had to step it up before he got bored and caused trouble. That kid never ceases to amaze me! He learned to identify, read/name, and produce mixed fractions in under 10 minutes with 100% accuracy! What on earth am I going to teach him in 1st grade?! Yesterday I discovered he can skip count to answer multiplication problems... In his head... Without a hundred chart. Little smarty pants ;)


  1. What program are you looking to create clip art on? I'm always interested to know what others use!

    Mindful Rambles

    1. I honestly haven't decided! The tablet came with Adobe Photoshop Elements and Autodesk sketchbook but I haven't had time to test out either one. I'll let you know. What do you like to use? I'm a total NEWBIE at this!

  2. Can't wait to see what you create. And isn't the variety involved with teaching kids withASD amazing. This made me smile this morning. Thanks!

    1. This comment made me smile! Sometimes I write feeling like no one reads my silly rambles. I love to hear what I've said makes someone have a happy thought! Yes, ASD is such a tricky thing! I have 3 kids with it this year and they are NOTHING alike. Yet somehow, they all amaze me every day! I just love seeing the quirky way their wheels turn in their heads :)

  3. Book club and a night out sound amazing! How was The Paris Wife?

    Live Love Laugh and Teach!

    1. I really liked it! The ending was one where I couldn't put it down in the last 50 pages! I stayed up until 11 pm on Tuesday night finishing it!

      I love book club because it gives me a chance to talk to people over the age of 7. Plus I can expand my vocabulary because I feel like talking to little kids has made me dumber, haha!! Too many simple sentences all day!

  4. You will have to update us and how the Bamboo tablet is. I have been thinking of getting one, but haven't yet. Good luck and keep us updated.
