The first (short) week of school is in the books. So far, it looks like it may be a pretty good year. I'm going to be working more one-on-one with some students, so hopefully I'll be able to be more of a help to them. Football season begins tonight for the local high schools, and a couple of them should do very well this year.
Here is the good stuff:
When Josh drove across the country and back last year, he wrote about his travels on his blog and took a lot of pictures. He has taken some of those writings and pictures and published a book. The title is Summer School: A Record of Miles Traveled, Things Seen, and a Self Found. I know my opinion might be slightly biased, but I think it's good. You can check it out here.
