Hello everyone, I am sorry that I haven't been on here in a long time. I will make this quick, because it is a super long story, but I wanted to let everyone know what I have been up to, and why some of you may not have received postcards. I recently experienced a house fire. We lost 95% of our belongings, and the house is essentially gutted. I lost all of my school related things that I had at home, as well as all of my "teacher books." My insurance only replaces 1,000.00 dollars of that, and so I had to replace what "school-owned" items I had with that money, and I have not replaced pen-pal stuff. This has been very hard. I took the last 4 months off from school. Will be returning to teach this year, but have had some serious ptsd issues. So, for those of you that do, please keep me in your prayers, and know that I am really excited to get involved with my atoz friends again.
