Words with friends

Today I had the privilege to meet with fellow bloggers from my area to produce words in a conversational setting. It was so much fun. This is a group of teachers just like me who have the same passion for teaching that I do. They were already not leaving children behind when President Bush created that policy. They are tremendously driven in their work with children. I thrive in their words and presence. Here is just a taste of the conversation that we had today. I cannot capture what was said, only the words and the connections we made:

by Sarah Amick
art of living, becoming..., chocolate, conversing, connections,
change, disussing, exhilarating, emotions,
friendship, gaining respect, heartfelt "thanks,"
Inspire, joking, "keep blogging," laughter,
memories, notebooks, optimism,
"pick your brain," questioning, rivoting,
stories, sharing, treasures, understanding,
venting, wishing, yearning, "no z names, please!"
I think that I would like to host the next party if you all will come to the Fort. We could do it before the school year and gather our courage together. See you soon!

Sounds like fun! Hopefully next time Dina can come too. She teaches with us and is a blast! You'd really like her. Let us know when it is!

May I come to yours Sarah? Fort Wayne is within my mileage allowance! It sounds like it was so much fun. Sorry I had to miss it!

What a great "recap" of the day and in poetry form to boot! YOU are amazing. Looking forward to meeting again. August will be here before we know it! Fun! Fun!

Absolutely! I am there. I missed out on today because I had to go to Indy for surgery stuff. I am excited. This could become a "thing"!
