I can feel myself slipping into my neglected-blog phase again, so this is a compilation of several things I’ve been meaning to post but haven’t had the chance to:
- For relatives who’ve been asking (or generous wealthy people randomly wandering through) I’ve updated my Christmas wish-list at froogle. You can see it by clicking here. Mostly the usual…Camping stuff, Woody Guthrie & John Steinbeck stuff, etc.
- I’ve posted a few more videos of Grady on Youtube. You can see them all here.
- Saving the best for last–I am very, very, VERY proud of my former Academic Decathlon students at Sunset High school–this month they participated in District Competition against all of the other schools in the Dallas school district (one of the largest in the nation). They made history by placing FIRST. That means they beat EVERY SINGLE MAGNET SCHOOL and all of the affluent white-bread North Dallas schools. For an inner-city, mostly hispanic school with all the accompanying challenges and educational obstacles, this is huge. I was honored to be there, and it’s a day I’ll remember for a long time.
