Look for more new stuff later---I've only been at work one day so far. Sometimes, life takes over blogging and work. I loved our Indonesia visit, and seeing our awesome daughter navigate the culture, language, and school blew me away.
(repost from last year)
If you haven't been following my blog, you may not know that I now actually have a very small library of 'back to school themed' printables for all of your speech/language or special education needs. Here they are! This should work for you for a couple of weeks! Just click on the links beside each picture.
"Things we do at School" printable book and icons.
Riding to School---printable book and icons
Back to school Prepositions Bingo--free printable
What do you hear at school---free printable book with icons.
I hope your states are treating you better than North Carolina is treating its teachers!!!! Click on the link below the picture for a depressing picture of the state of our system (written by a teacher near Asheville).

Temples, ocean, volcanoes, different food, markets, rice paddies....they provide a wealth of opportunities for pictures.

Intense day in Jakarta!
First I'm struck constantly by the friendliness of everyone even though the language barriers and economic differences are immense.
Second, a walk across the road (20 feet from the hotel gate) showed the third world nature here. David and I took a stroll and were left with images that words can't really describe.
Pictures show the canal, primitive living conditions, fishing and one friendly fisherman, and a canal side cemetary with both marked and unmarked graves.
The final picture is the inside of our hotel lobby close by.

After 20 something hours in the air David and I are finally in Jakarta, Indonesia. More to come later....we are happy to be on the ground!
If you ever decide to do this, plan in advance how to get from the airport to the hotel. The taxi drivers were on you like vultures wanting business. Thankfully David had pickup arranged.

The impact on this blog is that for a month (yes-- the trip will be that long), I'm not posting anything in terms of speech therapy. You will see, however, pictures from a friendly colorful place on the the other side of the earth. I hope you enjoy this. The images below summarize our first week's plans a little.
Indonesia is huge. We are landing in Jakarta.
13 million people in this city! Not staying here long---just enough to recover from the 20 something hours of air travel.
Then it's off to Bali.
No comment needed here.
I'll post my own pictures later. You get the idea.
One week in Bali, then three more weeks exploring the densely populated main island of Java.
