Online I found a new copy of Planet Earth, by BBC, for only about 20 dollars! My roommates and I watched two episodes tonight...and already have plans to watch more. I can't wait to see all of the episodes... I have only seen 3 of the ten or so episodes. It is such a well-made series!
School this week was extremely tiring, but I have been enjoying it. I love my class, and I am starting to get to know my kids past their surface levels. I am often surprised by what they do-- and sometimes don't-- know. We have a lot to catch up on at the beginning of this fourth grade year, and there are great things that they are teaching me. With the challenges and the effort comes good dividends, and I am so glad to be a teacher. That said, I can't think of this whole year, because then I will get overwhelmed. I can do next week, though. A week at a time, we'll make it through in a glorious way; at least that's what my current motto is.
Props to Melinda who got into Women's Chorus this week! I am proud of her and I know she will love being under the tutelage of Jean Appolonie. I got to be in that chorus for three semesters, and as busy as they were, I miss it.
