Powerful Words

My husband, three kids, dog, and I have now been evacuated for 7 days due to Hurricane Ike. We got word today that power should be restored in our neighborhood in 2 more days...yea! I've been attempting to homeschool our 11, 12, and 15 year olds during this time using as many online resources as possible since the kids didn't bring their textbooks with them when we evacuated (imagine that) and they are better engaged with technology than with listening to me. While looking on TeacherTube for math video clips, I came across this great video of powerful quotes which really inspired me today. Please feel free to share your favorite inspirational quote on this posting.

Are you back in school now? I felt like I was camping in my own home running a generator. You come to truly appreciate the quiet that comes when the power comes on.

I hope all is back to normal and you are 'up and running' again!

Staff started back to school Thursday and kids return on Monday. We got minor damage to our home. We still don't have cable, so I changed our service over to DSL so at least we would have Internet. I was going "out of my mind" not knowing what was going on in the world. I'm ready for hurricane season to end and for things to return back to normal!! Thanks
