TPMs (Finally)

So first off I should apologize about not getting to the TPMs sooner. The wi-fi at the Hermite Islands is shaky at best. However the trip was wonderful and I believe that I can now be 120% the teacher that I formerly was. The weather was also fantastic at the Cape and it snowed constantly. I adore snow and when I heard that it was snowing back in River Forrest, I could barely contain my excitment (If singing  ocapella Winter Wonderland on a plane counts as containing my exctiement at all). Two places on opposite ends of the globe and BOTH with snow, I mean how lucky could I be. That is until I saw my house. I couldn't get in and now I am temporarily living in my classroom (At least it's the weekend) I was so caught up in how much I adore snow that I forgot that it had downsides as well. Have you ever been so caught up in something that you realize it isn't always good and has bad qualities as well, I'd love to hear!

Good times at Cape Horn

Landed at the Hermite Islands a few days ago. Sorry I haven't posted in a while (17 hour long flight can do that to you. Phew. Anyways the Cape is amazing and I have made sure to take pictures (these are some of my favorites). In case anyone is wondering Cape Horn and the Hermite Islands are on the southern tip of argentina. Us teachers are having a great time and brushing up on our spanish. I will start TPMs next time.
