Well that long weekend had to end sometime.
It was funny to listen to my student complain about how hard it was to come back to school after four days off. They don’t even have to run anything!
We finished our stories this morning and it was great to see some kids really pushing themselves to write more. There are some very strange stories though! One has “a human, an alien and a vampire. The vampire bit the human and then they got married.” I don’t want to know where that idea came from!
We did a little learning about the Northwest Territories, but the big event of the day was our visit from Urban Safari. They are an exotic animal rescue centre.
They brought a ton of different creatures including a stickbug, cockroaches, a tarantula, two different tortoises, a bearded lizard, a leopard lizard, two snakes, a bearded bunny, a ferret and a sugar glider.
It was neat that with each animal the woman pointed out why it was not a good pet as that’s the most common reason they end up with these creatures:(
I walked to and from school twice as I forgot stuff at home today. I also did a 2km run with the kids after school before my massage, but it was a rest day today.
I went to trivia tonight and it was just us five girls. The first game we were fourth, but then we went downhill. Maybe I got more interested in my wings and sangria🤣. I heard him say that every week there will be a question about an actor with three names so maybe I’ll start studying that. Otherwise, we really need to get better at music trivia! I have no idea how you study music though.
Some of the questions tonight were:
The events in a biathlon- shooting and cross country skiing.
Who was prime minister at Y2K? Jean Chretien
What year did outlaw Jesse James die? 1882
Which is fastest on land- a Golden Eagle, cheetah or gazelle? Golden Eagle
What was Pink’s best selling song? Just Give Me a Reason
Oh and the closest they got to a Hallmark movie question… which two movies have Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson been in? How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and Fool’s Gold
Well I’m off to curl up with my heating pad as my feet got wet this morning at track practice and so I’ve been freezing all day!
