Sunday Salutions: Iowa State Fair: Part 1 – Disconnect

As teachers, our busy time comes in streaks: The end of the grading periods, end of the school year, holidays, and the beginning of the school year. So, why not have both Irish Fest AND Iowa State Fair stuff in... Continue Reading →

The Best Therapy #SOL22

My State Fair #sol19

It's 10:15 CST, and this is the view from where I'm sleeping: Yup, it's State Fair time! As my wife is in Italy, my job of "show dad" has expanded to that of "show parent". U made cookies. I made... Continue Reading →
