Grammar in the VI

Friday, April 09, 2010      2 comments

I've been proofreading my students' letters - my favorite today was by a girl who is of stateside parents, and has spent some time there - when she talks to me, she sounds like a stateside child; when she talks to other St. Thomian students, she... Read more

Sometimes I seriously worry about school

Thursday, April 08, 2010      8 comments

I have my students currently writing "postcard letters" to the president. They write a letter on a full sheet of paper, I proofread and correct, they re-write it. Then they draw a picture on the other side. I will mail every letter in a packa... Read more

Agoutis

Wednesday, April 07, 2010      6 comments

The agouti is a very common Central American animal - also a rodent, like the capybara, but smaller - maybe the size of a rabbit. And as common as rabbits are in the NE US - we saw them wandering through the niece's back yard! See what I m... Read more

Hectic but unpacked - sort of

Tuesday, April 06, 2010      4 comments

It always amazes me how many steps I add when packing and unpacking. Not that it goes into my cardio, but it does go into my daily/yearly log for mileage. Anyway, I am unpacked, though I have a pile of stuff on top of my dresser, waiting t... Read more

Panama Day 5

Wednesday, March 31, 2010      4 comments

Went out to the Amador Causeway - basically, a 3 mile stretch of road that connect 3 little islands off a peninsula on the south coast of Panama City. Mostly restaurants and shops, but nice walking, pretty marinas, and the Smithsonian Institute... Read more

Days 3 & 4 - Panama

Tuesday, March 30, 2010      6 comments

DH and I tend to wander around a lot, so we've been doing some of that. We aren't in the greatest neighborhood, but things are fine during the day and we're taking taxis at night, so while it's safer, well, I'm not getting as many steps as we u... Read more

3/26 - Panama City, Panama

Saturday, March 27, 2010      5 comments

Uneventful flights, despite only 40 minutes between flights in Miami - luckily the two gates weren't very far apart. Met DH's niece at the airport here, she took us to our hotel, which is modest but nice and cheap! And owned by Israelis! ... Read more

Almost had a panic at the wall today!

Friday, March 26, 2010      6 comments

I took my first class up to the wall for our new mural today - it's on the outside of the music building, right by the auditorium, and visible across the school. Armed with yardsticks, tape measure, a ladder, and markers, we trudged across ... Read more

DH is a gov't attorney. He's arguing a case (an appeal) before our Supreme Court this morning. And today is the first day that the cases will be filmed and simul-cast on the internet, and then everything will be kept in a law library (sort of ... Read more

Boo - none of my kids' art was selected for the ketchup contest

Tuesday, March 23, 2010      9 comments

My students were so disappointed when I told them - none of the top 3 to be voted on were from our school. (None of them were from the USVI - all from the mainland.) I gave them my little pep talk about trying, entering, and having fun wit... Read more

Got my omega-3s today!

Monday, March 22, 2010      1 comments

We went to dinner, and the place where DH likes to go (for his daily burger and fries) had salmon as a special. It was sooooooo good! With a little herb butter, a side of rice and vegs - YUM! I feel so healthy after having fish - as if my... Read more
