I can't believe how long it has been since I last posted anything! This series of snow pictures is from the trip Chris and I made to the Methow Valley over midwinter break. It was the most fabulous cross country skiing experience I have ever had. I skiied 24 miles in one day. Needless to say I was exhausted (and sunburned) at the end of the day. We stayed at the Chewich Inn which is a wonderful bed and breakfast with scones 'to die for'.
My blog's title originated in July 2004 as I was preparing to send my then 16 year old daughter to Annecy, France as an exchange student. It was to be a 10 and 1/2 month separation that I was sure I could not endure. BUT, thanks to the internet and blogging I survived her adventures outside of our 'nest'. Once she returned, I thought of changing the title but realized that 10 and 1/2 Months was a fitting description of the cycle of my teaching life too. Now that I am retired the days and months have much less structure but the title remains out of nostalgia for my teaching days.
