Well the day started oddly as halfway to school it suddenly started pouring down snow and it stayed that way most of the day at school. However, when I got home there was no snow here. Weird!
The best part of the day is that my parents have arrived in town!!!
We had a professional engineer come and talk to the class today. He brought some of the tools of his trade, though unfortunately he couldn’t get the working traffic light through the snow:(
We had some catch up time, worked on double digit addition, had computers and finally got some silent reading time in. The children were amazed that they got centers two days in a row, but we had a change of plans this afternoon, so it was the simplest solution.
After school we had the kids book club for The Unlikely Story of a Pug in the City. For the most part the children enjoyed it, though I think they like the chips the best!
I’ve been reading Lunch in Paris by Elizabeth Bard. It’s good so far, but a very light read.
I ran the long route over to visit my parents and it went pretty well. I swear the only snow is on their block! It was so nice to get a mom and dad hug! Think I’m going to need one each day that they are home!
My run seemed to go slow, but I was still a pretty good pace for me. I was definitely slower on the way home after having sat for an hour!
I’m a little mad at myself for stopping at 6.17km when I needed to do 7km for the squad Runner mission, but I guess it’s just not happening today.
Thankfully I did get my 200 squats in and my 100 crunches.
I really want to make the lemon bars for Sally’s Baking Challenge, but I think it’s too late so it will have to wait until tomorrow. I know my dad will like them so hopefully he’ll eat most of them!
I am back to knitting and reading at the same time. Turns out it’s just as nice to end the day this way as it was to start it:)
