On Sunday we drove to the big city for a BBQ with friends from long ago. Many of those attending were former students of my husband’s who are now in fact tenured professors themselves. It was heartwarming to gather together with them, and their families. There was a ping pong tournament with the twin daughters of one former student, a jam session with two of the guys in which one “child” (over 200 pounds!) also participated. Where did the time go?

    Not too many people can see the results of their work decades later. How satisfying and fun to boot!

    I’m so glad you had the chance to share in former students lives.

    The ingredients get mixed, but it takes time for the yeast to raise the bread and the bread to bake. A former student at the little “cardboard and string” school I founded in 1971 is back to teach there herself after lots of education, travel, experience out over the world. Very exciting!
    The school is now over 40 years old with four classrooms, seven staff members and over 50 children serving pre-kindergarten through 6th grade.

  4. Chris, I’d love to hear more about your school and how it came to be! I wish I could see photos from then and now as well!
