I add my thanks to Alexis for setting this up. I too have never used a blog before. I didn't realize it was so easy. I am so glad that you have the know-how Alexis. It is good to hear what everyone is doing. I visited my mom in GA right after the storytelling institute. Then my husband and I spent a few days with his father in Indiana. I have been busy in between helping out my pregnant daughter who is on total bed rest. I am turning my thoughts to school and will be back getting things in order this coming Monday. I am so looking forward to using storytelling with my students and with my school. Learning from each of you wonderful people has given me much personally and professionally. I am working on choosing my next story.
