Thanks for your nice comment! Sorry it took me so long to get back. I hope you'll still be my partner! I got very crazed at the end of the school year and then had the extended family over for the week. I've just gotten back to eating healthy and working out. Today I did well with my food plan and walked for an hour. I did go to the NAEA convention this past spring---it was great---I learned a lot! High points were hearing Chuck Close speak, and watching a presentation on an urban middle school teacher from Boston's thoughts on setting up her classroom to be middle-school friendly. Oh, and getting free stuff from the vendor booths!
