My students insisted we count how many days until spring break this morning. I guess I’m not the only one counting🤣
It is still a little crazy as I try to get reading assessments and sight word assessments done along with everything else. We did pretty good today, though I forgot to start the addition drills. I guess we’re doing even more of them tomorrow.
We did get through a journal, and music (when I wrote two more report cards), gym where we built our own obstacle course and a student self assessment on the term. This afternoon I did a few reading assessments during silent reading and then I got to do my first outdoor Ed activity. We had a talk about the difference between playtime and outdoor Ed and then we went out and did our brainstorming of community jobs in the gorgeous sunshine. I think it helped being outside as a plane went over so they got pilot and there is construction on a house so they also got a few more jobs out of that sight. The kids actually did really well! We ended the day with playtime outside.
It was a nice enough day though I will be happy to get past the point where I am assessing so much- it makes for a twice as busy day:(
I ran down to my massage appointment which felt really good after more than a month without one.
I got all my new stash put into my ravelry stash and my new books entered into the library so I was happy about that. I also got a project page made for my newest pair of socks- the London Socks by the Knitting Expat. These socks were great to make and I now want to make myself a pair. This pair I made for my teaching buddy and she will get them for Christmas.
These are 64 stitches on 2.5mm needles and using Kroy sock yarn. I now realize how much heavier of a sock yarn Kroy is. One sock is slightly bigger than the other as I used magic loop for one and the other started on an 8” circular but got changed to Knitter’s Pride Wooden DPNs. My gauge definitely changes so I think the next pair will be done on the DPNs and the magic loop. I just need to decide which yarn to use.
I also finished my Bonny sweater tonight but it is being blocked so you’ll have to wait to see it. I guess I get to cast something on tomorrow as I only have my knitting on the go project right now.
My cousin came this evening and the dishwasher installation is finally complete🎊🎉. Unfortunately I’ve learned tonight that the bifold doors I have been storing for about five to eight years are the exact same size as my closet openings so my cousin doesn’t think they will work:(😥😥😥😖😖
Then when I went to soak my sweater in the bathroom sink- the stopper stopped working:(. Is everything I touch going to break this year?
I’m going to hide under my covers now!
