It's very quiet at work this week, without our summer institute participants. We were having a quiet morning conversation near the classroom when a friend offered to take our photo with my iPad. It came out pretty good, given the birght backlight. Each of us on the bench is from a different country.
This was at the formal banquet.
Most of their time was spent in the classroom in intense study. Most of my time was spent next door keeping things organized and running.
This photo was taken at our opening mixer event. Chicago style pizza, salad, and fruit. We had similar lunch buffets each day where I got to sit with and get to know the participants.
Now I'm paying bills and getting the planning for the fall conferences underway.
