A much calmer day than yesterday:)
My day was quieter and calmer today but that might be because I only had fifteen children today! I don’t think I’ve ever had that small of a class before! It was quite lovely!
The highlight of my day was the success of one little boy. My carpet roller who just cannot sit still on the carpet was moved to a chair today. It was amazing! I spoke to the children this morning to explain that he wasn’t in trouble and we talked about how I do different things for different people- some get extra reading help, some work on being quicker, etc and this little guy sits in a chair rather than on the carpet. He’s an angel on the chair, or at least today he was, and I’ll take it!!! It made such a difference to the day!
We did word practice, analyses our box and drew it this morning (the start of the box project), did a math drill, learned to count back to subtract, and made First Nation moons in art. The math was actually the highlight for a lot of the children as we used the smartboard!! Amazing, how little it takes to make them excited sometimes🤣
After work, I headed over to see my nephew. My brother arrived home exhausted so I took my nephew out for about forty five minutes to give my brother a break. What do you do with a ten year old who doesn’t say what he wants to do….
🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 He’s the perfect excuse for my bad habits:)
I arrived home and really didn’t want to exercise at all. I thought I should go for a run as it was still daylight but the motivation wasn’t there. I sent this to my mom and she reminded me I would love myself after I ran. I was having an amazing run and felt really fast, but of course my phone had died by then.😏😞🤣. I at least got smart enough to manually enter the time and distance that I did after it stopped, but I’ll never know how fast I was flying:(
I guess I really should call my service provider next week and find out what they can offer me:(
Oh yes I also got an email about the updated race events in my area this year. It’s nice it was also offered in map form this time. There happens to be a race in April and one in June that are on routes I do regularly so I’m thinking those might be the two for me to try🤔
My goal was to finish the next kids book club book by Sunday, but I managed to read it in a day!
It was a quick and good read. A little mysterious and I know it has a moral, but I couldn’t tell you what it is. It has a death and a magic wardrobe in it, so I probably wouldn’t go younger than nine or ten on this one.
I managed to finish my Socks last night!🎉🎊. I love them! The rose city roller pattern on Ravelry was very easy to follow and they provided a great fit for me:). I didn’t love how they Madeleine Tosh light merino kept splitting on me, even though I was being super careful! I will definitely be getting lots of use out of my New Hampshire socks and even better I got them entered into the newest HPKCHC quidditch match:)
Unfortunately I have lots of this yarn left, so I think I’m going to cast on a pair of mitts. I found a kid pattern to try, but it is driving me crazy already so if anyone has a suggestion, I would love to hear it!
Well I’m boiling eggs and making chicken stock out of my chicken from this past week, so I’m off.
