reverb10: out on the road

We traveled quite a lot this year, though most of it was for conferences or work-related agendas. In April, we went to Louisville for C's; May we went to Purdue for Computers and Writing. During the summer I went back to Louisville to grade AP exams and from there I visited my brother in Birmingham where my sister-in-law explored the botanical gardens and took some gorgeous pictures. Then I drove through a torrential down-pour to my parents' house in Panama City, then to Mobile for a few days and then back to Illinois. October took us to Louisville again for Watson where we went to the amazing hillbilly tea. For Thanksgiving, I flew to my parents and visited Mobile again. In between we traveled back and forth to Bloomington countless times. And in January, we'll take a road trip to the Gulf Coast to visit both our families.
