A Connection Home

I have been wondering what would be the best way to keep connected to home. Then it struck me...a Blog! So, I have started this site to share the events as I journey through school.
The city of Milwaukee has been good to me thus far. The weather has been good, the traffic has been tolerable, and the people have been great. I have been comfortable driving about and finding all the places a nun needs to survive, like Walgreens. The interesting part has been learning the correct geography terms to get where I need to go. I drive on an expressway--not interstate. I live in a suburb, but my suburb is a city and not a village.
My house has been a great choice. The Franciscan sisters are welcoming and understanding. They have been teasing me about all this reading I have to do for class. Apparently, this is not a new situation and they have some interesting tales of their own from school days past. They always invite me into whatever might be going on for the day, but don't take offense if I need to say no. Yesterday, I spent reading about 'motivation' while they celebrated birthdays with a couple students from their college.
Well, I need to go. I must return to Elliot Eisner and his view of the imagination in curriculum. Chapter four won't read itself, but it short and will leave me time to read some Lord of the Rings after supper.

I think this is cool. I took me a bit of time to figure out how to make a comment. It sound like you are enjoying yourself. How do I know that you posted a new comment? I think this is part of the life-long learning curve.
