1 really productive day

It's amazing how much a person can get done when they're feeling better! I felt like I had accomplished more in the first 2 hours of my day today than the 4 days prior! My stomach isnt all the way back to normal, but it's MUCH better today.

Good Lord! That IS a lot of stuff you did! Makes me feel lazy even tho I feel really busy all the time...
Glad to hear you are feeling better!

So good to hear from you. I've been thinking about you alot lately. Hope you and Adam are well and the new house is treating you nicely. I know owning a home can be a constant project.

Let's talk soon!

Ah - is that the science camp out past Mekoryuk? The name of the island escapes me. I met a lady (one of the teachers from Akiak) who helped out with it last year and she really liked it. I also know one of the attendees, seemed to like it too but thought the conditions were a little rough.

Glad you are feeling better if not 100%. I'm living vicariously on the productivity, I'm decidedly NOT productive lately!

This is a new idea for here in Bethel this summer. We have received some grant monies to develop a summer intervention for 6,7, and 8th graders. My principal asked me to brain storm some ideas...so right now it is just in the planning phase, but, hopefully, I'll be the one teaching it this summer! Since I'm planning to stick around this summer, I was really hoping for a job and I had expressed that to my principal a few weeks ago. So...we'll see...
