I'm off to Italy for the next two weeks, and will probably have little time to blog over that time. I'm leading a group of middle schoolers on an exchange program to Florence, and even upon my return the posts should be sporadic because their Italian partners come home here and we'll be busy with other activities. I hope to have time to post some Quotes of the Week tomorrow morning before I leave. We're also supposed to incite thoughtful discussion on world issues with the kids when we're all together, so maybe I'll have some extra Underage Thoughts upon my return. Until then, ciao!
