This trip was originally intended to combine the long-awaited ski trip with a syllabus-planning retreat suggested by Dawn. As the three of us have related academic interests, she had the brilliant thought that together we could come up with a syllabus for a humanities class that each of us could employ later on with minimal changes. Unfortunately, Dawn hasn’t been feeling well and her doctor prescribed bed rest (along with antibiotics), so the syllabus retreat will have to wait.
Other than the fact that Jesse and I will be out enjoying the snow while Dawn is stuck at home, perhaps postponing the syllabus retreat is for the best. Nathan could contribute history ideas but can’t go this weekend either.
