O.K. I know I am WAY behind in posting but I've been busy being 'dedicated teacher' and 'avid gardener'. Also, my teaching partner, Sharon, took these AWESOME photos of her 6 week trip to China and I have been having fun playing with them. She and I both bought the same camera in June but Sharon's comfort and interest level in computers and technology is not as developed as mine so she has not even printed any of her 1000 plus photos yet. Well, they are just such fascinating photos, I just had to do something with some of them! Won't she be surprised! Click on the photos to see them larger.
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.
