See you in September

Dear Soulseekers, It’s a beautiful Friday morning and I am on one of my last little get aways for the summer. July has been really busy with vacations and getting ready for school. I’ve already been up to school working on my classroom, syllabi and lesson plans even though we are just shy of a […]
