Dear Sybil and Kelly,
Congratulations to you both!!!
We'll be exhibiting at the AASL conference before going on to NCSS in
Orlando, Florida. We'll definitely be there to give you moral support.
As for the lesson, let ideas percolate during your convalescence. When you
and Kelly are ready, don't hesitate to contact me for anything you might
need or questions you might have. Be sure to put questions to the
Amfellows list (or to your small listserv), so that your fellow Fellows can
also help you.
I hope you'll have access to a computer and Internet connection at home.
We've got some great collections coming online (songs, photos, pioneer
documents, etc) that would make your surgery and recuperation fly by!
