To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. Ralph Waldo Emerson said it; I believe it.

School Daze

Well, today was the first day of 8th grade, and it went very well at the Virtual Academy! My son was very inspired by our President's address to students across the country. He told me that he watched it live, then watched it again on C-Span just so he could catch some of the parts that he missed. He was very impressed that Mr. Obama had to get up at 4:30am to keep on schedule with his US education while he was living in Indonesia with his mom. Thank God for a president who understands the difficulties that some students face in their educational pursuits, and who feels the responsibility to encourage and motivate them to do their best, despite the obstacles!!! May the Lord continue to bless our president and his family, and may the doubters, haters, and naysayers go the way of the dry leaves in the fall...
I am feeling quite positive about the online game plan for this year, so stay tuned for regular updates.
BTW, the Ph.D. is coming along nicely. I have a meeting with my dissertation committee chair tomorrow. It is still looking like May 2010 but I have WORK to do. I need to listen to our President's speech again too...every student needs a little motivation!
