Off to the Zoo

Our family is off to the zoo today.  We have been looking forward to this trip all week!  The rain made us postpone our trip until today.
I have found myself in the past taking way too many photos of random animals that I don't remember the names of.  I have tried taking photos of the signs that go with the animals to help.  Today, I think I will let the kids decide what we take pictures of.  They have their favorites, of course, so I think that will be the best way to capture the day.
Have a great day!  And don't forget to do something creative today. :)

12 Update

I am feeling a little behind in my "Twelve" class lately.  Stacy says we are never really behind and I am trying to stick to that philosophy.  Besides, I'm already so many pages in to this year than I typically would be, so that counts BIG in my book.

Baseball started and then a round of illness hit us, so scrapbooking and the class took a back shelf.  The inspirational emails are "piling up" and my Inspiration File has been neglected.  I am a couple months behind on Triggers and Storytelling. Yikes!  This kills my overachieving-student spirit.

Well, today is a new day.  One of my best crafting buddies is coming over for a Spring Break craft session.  I hope to get some pages knocked out and get the enthusiasm and excitement back for this awesome class.

I find once I get back to my craft desk or do some reading on the class, I am pumped back up to create, create, CREATE!  What gets you back into the groove when you've had a break?
