Bourbon Street with our teaching mentor, Rita, and Brendan's former French Lit. teacher, Rachel. Maybe not the best idea before my 9am presentation, but I pulled it off!
Checking out the New Orleans Museum of Art and Sculpture Garden (highly recommended!):
Jazz Concert in the Botanical Garden and dinner at Cafe Degas with my Aunt Annette and Cousin Elena.
Brendan got his Oyster fix the next day at Felix's.
All the amazing readings we saw, including Natasha Trethewey, the U.S. Poet Laureate.
An outstanding, romantic dinner at Bayona.
And seeing our McNeese buds.
Louisiana holds a special place in our hearts, and it was wonderful to be back for a few days. We are thankful to Midland College for sending us.
We are home safe and enjoying a day of rest before the work week begins. It's hard to believe, but I'm already prepping my students for their timed writing midterms...this semester does feel fast!
