Yeah, so life has been kind of crazy since school started.
1st grade, 2nd grade, 5th grade, 7th grade: all fantastic. The kids are doing awesome. Our only hiccups so far have been school pictures. They boys' turned out good; the girls'... not so much. Weird hair, weird smiles... We're going to try for a retake.
Other than that, Freshman Algebra 1, Junior Algebra 2--also fantastic. Lots of paper grading and all the other wonderful stuff that goes along with it, but I think my students are having a pretty good year so far. I feel like I'm working really hard, but every day puts us one day closer to summer vacation!
When I finally rolled in from work tonight (about 45 minutes after "official" quittin' time), I rounded up the kids and we loaded up the bikes and headed to the Pecatonica Prairie Path for an early fall afternoon ride.
It was a GORGEOUS weather for a bike ride! We got just the right amount of exercise, worked up just the right appetite for a delicious supper of leftovers, and now the kids are in bed and I'm waiting for Dave to come in from the bean field! I need to get some papers graded... But I didn't want you to worry anymore-- thought I'd check in quick! Hope all is well with you! Have a great rest of the week!!
