Spring Break at Caddo Lake

One of my very favorite places is just about 2 1/2 hours from here. Caddo Lake is a beautiful and mysterious place to get away from it all. We just spent a few days up there in a little place called Uncertain, Texas. It's a great place to do...nothing. We read, canoed and shopped in a small town near here called Jefferson. I also had possibly the best fish and "hush puppies" ever at a place called the Big Pines Lodge. I highly recommend it if you are ever in the middle of Nowhere East Texas.

Hot Dog Book Reviews

Every other week we have class checkout. During those weeks I select a "Hot Dog" from each class to help check out. They also get an extra book checkout and they review that book for our Glog. I video tape their review and then have them draw a picture to represent them. I animate the picture and they get to see the review online. Here is an example of one recently finished. I have many more on my Glog page.
