Hi, Jeryl,
What an appropriate theme for you this year, as you will be going to Japan in
November on the Fulbright! May I suggest Georgia O'keeffe as an American
women artist and Gainsborough for England (he was English, wasn't he, correct
me if I'm wrong?) You could address this table as "The Blue Boys"...LOL....
BTW, we don't have motion detectors ijn our classrooms, just the halls.
