Updates and Video Tuesdays

In a few weeks I start Graduate School online for Education Transformation (doesn't that sound cool?)

The Shadow in us we need to greet and Shadow Theater

I anxiously awaited the sun being blotted out while hiding out in the house away from windows with my Giant Ooh Yellow Dog, hoping the eclipse would pass quickly.
