My New Little Venture.....

Hi All! So sorry I haven't been blogging much lately. Suffice it to say that real life is getting in the way--that's a good thing, huh?

I am so excited about a new project that I am embarking on....co-teaching an honors course called Disability & Society at our state university with my friend JoLynn (who is an awesome professor!). I am told that this is a new trend in the special education field to have parents as co-teachers, so I am so excited to be able to be a part of this next fall.

Right now, I have been given the opportunity to get ready for the course by reviewing the materials, researching, and preparing.

Take a peek at the course marketing materials and see if you recognize someone special to me?


This is too fun....and I get paid which is a bonus too! :)


  1. Fun! You've got a cute little dancer on your hands!

  2. What a great class. I hope more schools offer classes like this. Grace is too cute in the photo!

  3. Fun! And you get to use your teaching skills!

  4. How neat!!! Wish I was there to take your class!!

    (And don't worry about not being a more faithful blogger - I haven't either!!)
