Teachers' Convention in Gatlinburg

This. . .

. . .was the view from my friend's and my bedroom balcony, in our lodge in the Great Smoky Mountains for the teachers' convention I just attended for three days. Not a bad view to wake up to!

We only enjoyed this porch the first day, as the temperatures turned cooler and we saw something unusual we are not used to at home. Rain. Steady, cold rain that fell all day. Seems like I have memories of that.

Interior of the lodge.

It was a nice conference. The speaker was focused on one topic, which was good, and his topic was beneficial. Our administrator went all out to make it a nice event for us and to show his appreciation for his teachers' hard work. And his wife cooked all the food - with five children underfoot. She is a saint!!!

We had some free time in the afternoon yesterday, and I took three other teachers antiquing. Nice time. The only bad thing about going to an antique store is that they know what they have and price accordingly.

And now - a weekend!!!
