In 2009, I was encouraged by my friends to give the 365 photo project a try. I love taking photos, and was excited about participating. The daily posts paint a brief picture of my year and open my eyes to the beauty around me. It is challenging to post a photo daily. I was successful in 2009 and 2010, but fell a few short in 2011. I'll be continuing my quest for daily photos in 2012 and look forward to sharing them here.
Today, I spent the lunch hour eating lunch with middle school students. I was asked to participate in their 'mix it up lunch'. As part of their Rachel's Challenge, they randomly assigned all students to a lunch table so that they were sitting with classmates they did not know as well as the friends they ordinarily sit with at lunch. Each table had an adult from the community sitting at the table to encourage conversation. I was happy to be a community volunteer today at this great activity!
