Well, Robert got his car fixed (long story) and I'm back in my Mustang. It feels good to be on my own schedule again. Now I can visit the genealogy library and resume my research projects! I sure wish they were able to keep the library open on Saturdays, but they just don't have enough volunteers right now.
I'm going to school early this morning because I have a couple of things to do in my classroom. I had to move my furniture again yesterday. Still trying to solve a couple of problems. I have some students who don't work well at the tables and need to be in their own desks. But then that creates problems because I need to make sure they can still see the board and they aren't so far away from the others that they feel totally isolated. I have a student who gets out of his seat twenty or more times a day and I need him in the least distracting place possible. I have two students who need to be as close to my desk as possible so I can see when they need help. I walk around my classroom a lot, but I do sit to grade papers and such. So I need to be able to glance at them. Always some reason to change the room slightly! I'm sure the dynamics will be different again in January.
I commented on Facebook that one of the first graders asked me an interesting question yesterday. LOL "Mrs. Maurer, how did you get to be so old?" I told her it was healthy living. Truth is I've begun to think I have forgotten all about healthy living. My diet lately has been terrible. Not nearly enough fruits and vegetables. Poor planning. I have to do something about that!
Have a great day and a wonderful weekend. Better start your Christmas shopping.
