It has been a very busy week. The family was left to their own devices and my classes to their writing while I attended a Student Success Institute in Jefferson City. I learned a good deal about Process Learning and what I do in my classroom already. It is nice to learn that what I strive for in teaching is a good thing.
After dinner Thursday, I took a walk. We were staying just two blocks from the capitol building. A short jaunt up the hill, past the Truman Building, and past the Catholic church, I wandered around the fountain gazed over the railroad tracks to the Missouri River. It was flowing fast, but peaceful. The weather was warm with a small breeze. I walked past the capitol and around the Governor's Mansion. The mansion is simply lovely.
