Musings, Tips, Tutorials, Fun, and more...
What a day! Today was definitely work day here at my job. Most of the day was spent cleaning house and making sure that I don't forget about anything that I need to do before my family leaves for a week. We will have no access to phones, or internet, so if my work needs me I will be unreachable...yikes! However, if nothing catastrophic happens (like the internet going down at work or something) then we should be good.
As far as tips or hints: never eat soggy waffles. Unless they are soggy from syrup, and then they are delicious. Oh, and if something stops working on your computer or device, try rebooting.

I recently published the Microsoft Excel module in our LMS and the following picture was waiting for them:
So, before I even posted the assignment they started creating their own. Several of them have created a few already and the assignment (called Pixel Art) isn't due until this Friday. I'm excited to look through what they create and I will post some pictures soon.
