I really do love thinking about Thursdays this way:)


We had to be flexible as this morning I only had ten children for first block as so many were pulled out for different reasons. Then we had AbEd come in and do the legend of the butterfly with my students and do a butterfly craft with them.

We did our last day of shapes and it went quite well. The students mostly seem to know their shapes and what a vertex, face and edge are.

This afternoon we worked on our art project. I only have one child done after two sessions so I see lots of art in our future next week.

After school I had the last Bookclub of the year and then finished my report cards. Still lots of editing and tweaking to do, but at least I have something I could send home!


It was the first night of trail clinic. I wasn’t super excited as we were just doing Mundy Park, but it actually turned out awesome because we did a route I’ve never done before. We even got to run around a lake I didn’t know existed! I put my self in the slow, short group and I was at the front of the group easily, but am not sure about moving up as I’m assuming it’s just going to keep getting longer and harder…?????

This evening I’ve done a bit of a workout before bed. I did: 50 squats, 50 plié squats, 100 front kicks, 100 back kicks, 100 roundhouse kicks, 100 hamstring curls, 100 standing crunches, 100 jabs, 100 crosses, 100 uppercuts, 30 v ups.

Have fun!

  1. You should trying moving up a group! When I was in cross country and track, we would run in smaller groups to make it a little more manageable. Moving up helped push your and it improved people’s running.

    1. You’re right- I should at least ask Dennis about his pace from last night- then I would know if it was doable for me

      1. Yes! You could even pick maybe 1 day a week or every other clinic (not sure how frequently it happens) to run with them. If it’s once a week maybe pick that as your hard day to push the pace

  2. glad to hear the group worked out well and you enjoyed yourself. see when you do things like this you find new and fun places to explore later. Hope your Friday goes smoothly… it’s the last day of the school week at least

  3. Today was the last day of school here in Michigan for public schools; the parochial schools get out a week earlier and start about a week before Labor Day. Times a ticking for you too and the start of Summer vacation, bet you can’t wait.

      1. All those days looming ahead would be a real treat for me too. There are just not enough long weekends or weekends to enjoy ourselves and when it is bad weather, I feel cheated.

      2. Yup I have to make the most of these two months- catch up with everyone I do t manage to see during the school year
