  1. I taught elementary too! How old is your grandchild(ren)? Are you living in India now, or visiting?
    Thanks for the reminder of history of today’s holiday.

    Melinda, I have 5 grandchildren, 3 girls and 2 boys with ages of 14, 11, 10, 9, 6. We were in India on our second trip with architecture students from the end of Dec 2014 until the first week of May 2015. My husband is a professor. We loved every minute and would go again in a New York minute. I taught all grades at one time or another from K-6 with 3rd and 4th as my favorites. I loved teaching writing! What did you teach and do you have grands? They are the best!
    PS My blogs on India are mixed into the over 900 + ones but jan-May from 2013 and 2015 are all about India, if you are interested ! Smiles. . . .
