Me: Great photo! I've never been back to any of my old (12? 13?) schools -- brrrr I hated school!
funny how you hated school and now teach in one.... we have bought a house in brisbane, queensland, went up on the weekend and by tuesday (today) had a house. It's spectacular...i'll forward the realators web page on it. and i mean spectacular.
hope you are well.
Me: Yes -- spectacular. This means you can have another 3 or 4 children! The particular school in which I work is such a strange, offbeat place that it's unique. I'm not saying that gratuitously -- it's the only school for Native American students that isn't a tribal school. As part of that -- our students coming from many communities and reservations -- we have tried to be like a family. I am heartened to be a part of a school where children aren't scared of adults -- unthinkable to me as a child. In my room we spend time laughing, and that is by no means something of little value. In other words -- a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, however this school may be called a "school," but it doesn't horrify me like lots of other schools. Extremely windy yesterday, with a tornado (but not at my house!). Today is sunny and calm. I have been (Visa card) rejected by my
present-for-Caitlin online bookseller -- I can't imagine why -- so no on-time present. Have to wait until you move, now. Their online-form-thing adds an "NA" after the city -- so I wonder if seeing "Olympia, NA" made my bank reject the attempted purchase? Unable to remove the "NA" which they add automatically when one writes in a state or privince rather than choosing from their drop-down menu of Aussie states. Silly. love, yer auntie
