This week seems to be taking forever though I know it just feels that way because I get to be on holidays at the end of it.

Teaching:

My students came in very productive this morning and got their five pieces of art glued into their scrapbooks first thing. I do love it when the children get independent enough to follow a list on the board:) lol however only five art projects in a term is a dismal failure!

We had a car sales manager come in this morning. It was fine and I definitely learned that Honda doesn’t just make cars, but is an engineering firm.

This afternoon we had a second aren’t come talk who is the head wrestling coach at a university and a former Olympic wrestler himself. I learned so much and he is definitely the best parent presenter we’ve had this year- just so charismatic! He taught the children a wrestling stance and then flipped one of the boys! Unfortunately all of my photos show faces so you’ll just have to take my word for it:)

We finished the day with gymnastics. I am impressed with my class this year as they have started going around and checking the mats and repositioning the hoops once they have their shoes and socks off. I guess they really want to do gymnastics as they aren’t allowed to touch equipment until this has been done and I’ve never asked them to do it. Kids taking initiative is so wonderful! ( and yes I do check everything myself too)

Exercise:

After chatting with some colleagues after school, I headed home for a run. I managed just over 4km and I actually hit a 6:10km. I don’t think I’ve ever done that before! I just hope it wasn’t a mistake!

Such a gorgeous day for a run! I may need to retire the down jacket soon🤣

Reading:

I finally finished Lunch In Paris by Elizabeth Bard last night. I added this book to my Goodreads TBR in March 2012!

The book was fine. It was about an American woman who meets a French man and ends up moving to Paris and her transition into this culture.

The book was interesting but I found it disjointed and tough to follow. I hadn’t realized eight years had passed until I got to the end of the book and that was stated in the epilogue.

I also found I wasn’t really invested in the characters. I didn’t feel as though I got to know them.

I did like how the book centered around food, but quickly realized the recipes weren’t for me with my food allergies. The parts of the book at the market were some of my favorites.

of course, being done my book meant I headed to the library this evening with my mom. I only came home with 14 books, not bad for me!!🤣

Well I’m leaving you now so I can go read!

Have fun!

  1. It’s so much fun to read about the children’s progress.

    We had warmer weather this morning — wore only a windbreaker over my clothes. A neighbor said we’re headed for cold again, though.

  2. Isn’t it the best feeling coming back from the library with such a massive stack of books?! Glad the kiddos were productive and easy on ya that day 🙂 Have a great weekend, AJ!
