I hope that your scholars had a wonderful and relaxing a summer vacation as I did. I started off the summer attending two education workshops. They were very informative, and well worth my while.
My husband and I left July first for a whirl wind tour of the West. We visited Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Idaho, Oregon, California, Arizona, and New Mexico. We visited three sons and their families (Utah and Oregon), my two sisters in Idaho, my brother in California, and my brother in Arizona. We were also able to with special friends we've made along our way in the 39 years that we've been married. We returned home July 29th and I drove to Houston to spend 10 days with my son and his family. It was a vacation of site-seeing, visiting family, and renewing acquaintances. What an emotional and mentally fulfilling time for both of us.
And now we are back to work once again---the business of teaching our scholars how to think. I attended meet the teacher night. Watching the scholars and seeing the visual signs of their excitement, got me all excited and ready for school to begin. Now we are here and our job has begun----the scholars to learn and the teachers and parents to encourage and to motivate. May we all find success in our endeavors.
