We need to downsize. The task of going through a lifetime of things stored in our basement seems a bit daunting at the moment. We decided that the only way we can possibly accomplish the task of moving and downsizing is to do it in stages.

Are we done with these yet?
Yes, for sure toss No Child Left Behind!
We are happy to get rid of that for sure.
Back in January of 2004, I had been hired to write the curriculum and develop the program that would allow teachers and pre-teachers to add an endorsement to teach the Linguistically Diverse (ELL - English Language Learners) Education Endorsement to an existing teacher license. I left the public classroom at that time. After I retired, I met Dixie again. We taught together when I took a semester position to teach reading at an elementary school where Dixie was teaching ESL. We became fast friends and have remained so ever since. I recommended she be hired after she retired to help teach the same course I was teaching to foreign students learning English at CSU-Pueblo during the second semester of 2011.
I love Dixie's approach to most things in life. She is very practical and level-headed. She is great sounding board for me. She also is a faithful friend. She has long time friends all over the country. Once you are her friend, she is there for you forever. I don't think I could have accomplished much of this move, been able to survive the death of my daughter, or been able to cope with my health issues without friends such as Dixie. Thanks, Dixie!
