Passing the Baton for Slice of Life Challenge

I headed to our blogger dashboard to get my slice of life post ready for Thursday, and I saw that my blog partner, Bill, had posted a slice of life about his son, Steven.  Being such a thoughtful blog partner, he had it posted for April 1 so I could continue with my slices the entire month of March without any distractions.

But I read his post, tears welling up in my eyes, and I knew I had to let Bill have a bigger audience.  So today, I'm passing the baton to Bill and this incredible piece about his son.  He's a very proud papa, and after you read his slice, hopefully you'll understand why.

And as far as meeting the requirements of a daily slice, I'm counting this introduction to Bill's slice of life as my writing for today... :)

For all of you who were left hanging with my writing from yesterday, I promise I will come back and tell the abbreviated version of how I went from knowing I shouldn't be a teacher and moving to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, to celebrating almost 30 years of teaching at the end of this year.  Life is funny sometimes.

As always, thanks to Stacey and Ruth at Two Writing Teachers for hosting the Slice of Life Challenge!
