Each year the Rotary Club of Port Orchard solicits nominations from the district's seventh graders for elementary teachers who made the greatest impact on their lives. This year Don and I were co-recipients of the award. We feel very honored as the award is selected by students. Kudos such as these remind us why we do what we do. Another treat is to have former students come and visit us to share their successes with us. We have had several of those this week as well. Today was the last day of classes for the year. The students were ready for summer as well as the staff. I'll be taking my mom to Montana on Friday to start my summer adventures. As a side note, Bjorn fixed me up with my own internet domain for Father's Day. You may have noticed that the URL for my blog is now southworthsailor.com (no www) For right now, I'll still use the blogspot template, but eventually I hope to create my own site.
