Vita Contemplativa

I've been helping Debi Blair and Morgan Cottle's 3rd and 5th grade classes put together a video project commemorating the 100th anniversary of Lithia Park. Martha Wilhelm, another volunteer (and recently retired teacher) took this picture while we were listening to playback during an audio recording session. Man, these kids are talented--it's always humbling working with young 'uns. I challenge you not to break down weeping when listening to 8-year-olds read their own haikus.
Also, elementary school teachers = respect in my book. Those are some hard-working, committed citizens, dang-nabbit. Ashland has some serious quality in the public school system.
