Do you like the font I used for it? I DO!! It is from the creative Jennifer Jones: Hello Literacy's Hello Fonts. It is called Frozen.
Think, "Let it go! Let it go!"
kind of dumb because when I got this month's Currently, I realized I did not use the correct Currently last month. I don't even know what I did. I am sure some of you noticed that and thought, "Why doesn't she have the same Currently as everyone else?".
So, I have been working on my end of year video for three weeks now. Every year technology is an issue and every year my end of year video takes much longer than it should. I had a little help achieving this, however. My son deleted my movie several times. Ugh...
It has been trying times in the Magro household for a few weeks. Nick just ended school, which you think would be fabulous. But, not so much when you are autistic. Any change in routine turns your (and whomever you live with) life upside down. And my husband, daughter, and I have no control; we are just TRYING to enjoy the ride.
Has anybody else out there in blogland had trouble making an end-of-year slideshow?
My colleague reminded me what to do and, once she did, it was easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy-mac-and-cheesy.
First, I needed to put all of my photos onto iPhoto in chronological order. Then, I merged them into one event names, "First Grade 2013-2014".
Next, I put all of the songs I wanted onto one playlist on iTunes and named it the same. Then, I opened up iMovie.
I put the photos in and the music.
Finally, I shared it with iDVD, and, Viola!, I could burn it onto dvds.
Next year when I forget how to do it for the 15th time, I will just come to this handy little reminder on my own blog. I vow that next year it will not take 3 weeks and over 30 hours to make a 30 minute slideshow. Mark my words. It won't.
Only one and a half more days of school and I am officially on summer break.
