My summer blog attempts gave way to Caring Bridge blogs about my son (see caringbridge.org/visit/samlantinga) during his strange "Sick-in-search-of-a-diagnosis" journey.
But I miss taking time to think about my day or record little snippets that I can enjoy remembering later. So, I'll try to get back on track here in my new role as Dean for Curriculum and Instruction. (Which basically means that I help faculty members teach better and help structure courses and policies so students can learn more. And I still get to teach a class every semester - which is the very best part of the week. Until I realized this week that my oldest son is just 3 years younger than my students - and I'm 20+ years older than them. Ouch.)
