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.
I was asked to have lunch at one of our middle schools today for their annual "Mix it up Lunch". The kids are randomly assigned to lunch tables and adults from the community are invited to sit at the tables to facilitate conversation as the kids interact with classmates they don't ordinarily sit with. I spent a wonderful lunch hour sitting with students who were very willing to meet some new classmates.
The flag outside the school was at half staff today to honor the people who were killed and injured in the horrible tragedy in AZ this past weekend.
