School is the challenge theme this week. Of course I think of the little one-room country school I attended, Grade 1 through 8. (Yes, I really did!) Our teacher had to arrive early in winter to build a fire in the pot-bellied stove that provided heat. This is a composite collage reminiscent of those little country schools. My aunt taught at one. She boarded with the family of one of her students, and rode a horse to the school every day! We children used to hope to be lucky enough to be the one chosen to take the erasers outside to clear them of chalk dust by beating them together. Times have changed a bit!
