Help a Sista Out!

I'm trying to find some new graphics to use.  I already use scrappin' doodles and love them!  But, I'm wanting some new graphics similar to what they have available, but a larger variety.  Also, does anyone know where I might can find cute things similar to this one?
I'm working on something new for my TpT store and could use some fresh new looks!  Thanks so much, friends :)

Small Group Record Keeping: Linky Party

During one of my grad school classes, we were discussing small groups and effective ways to keep records of what you observe with your students.  I am in desperate need of an effective way to do this!  Here's a simple one that can be used by anyone.  Basically, you date the top, have your students' names filled in, and take notes on what you see.

This can be kept daily or weekly depending on how much record keeping you want to do!

What do you all use as your anecdotal note tool?  Link up and share!

Name Help!

Call me crazy, but my husband and I are at a loss for what to name our precious little boy who is due to arrive the first of February.  I have named every name I can think of and all he has to say is, "no."  Seriously?  He has NOT been any help and has only suggested one name which is a current student's name... you teachers know how that is!  So.... any suggestions on what to name our sweet boy?  Our 2 year old's name is Hunter.  We like unique names, but not too unique.  Here are the names I have liked that he has said no to: Knox, Cowen, Asher, Jackson, Carter.  Those are the types of names I like.  Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Speaking of C-R-A-Z-Y!!  I got word on Friday that I had three days {due Monday @ 9am} to complete my Ed.S. Comp Exam.  It's an exam that I must pass in order to get my degree... what?  It's an analysis of a 17 page article.  The analysis can not exceed 15 pages.... really?  How am I going to analyze 15 pages worth??  Anyways... I'm half way there.  I guess I know what I will be doing the rest of tonight :)  However, I am glad that I finally got this download finished :)  I'm pretty proud of it!
