biked/ranThe first one happened in the morning with the second workout happening after school. And it isn't the workouts that have me tired. It is the getting up early four days in a row. Sure I get up for work those days but not quite that early! Usually I plan out just when I am doing what but this week I wrote: Bike when you can! There were rainstorms and thunder showers all over my weather apps for the week. Morning, noon and night. But it turned out I could fit in the bike rides I wanted. All were fairly short. One was on a lovely Middlebury route but they all happened!
Now I am ready to rest and get ready for the two person relay on Sunday. Vermont City Marathon is the best! Every day there is an article or two in the paper. I am getting lots of emails with information. Facebook has great updates. It would be hard not be excited about VCM! Tomorrow I will go to the Expo! I wonder what I'll see that I need! My goal for the race is to improve my last half's time. I also want as always to have fun fun fun!
Back in the day when I ran the whole thing!
2. Wednesday we went on another field trip and I can't begin to tell you how much fun it was. It was to the Montshire Museum, slightly less than 2 hours away. Four teachers took their classes. Two of us had been before and pretty much talked the other two into going. They were hesitant due to the distance. But now everyone is on board. It is a total hands on science museum with tons of stuff to do. It has expanded since I last visited. The outdoor science playground which contained many water experiments was a huge hit. Students were engaged the whole time we were there and well behaved. The day was a delight. I have to say the kids were very appreciative of the trip which is not always the case. I am still feeling a little giddy from the fun a whole day later.
3. I am clearly keeping my teacher hat on with this one. I know I make grammatical and spelling errors. I do like to know when I do especially if it is going home to parents. Sometimes it is hard not to correct people on Facebook. My biggest pet peeve is the incorrect use of your/you're. Today I have a new one. I can't tell you how many times I saw something about the lightEning storm. In fact I began to think this had become an accepted spelling but nope. Lightning is what we see in the sky. Lightening is what happens to your backpack when you take some heavy books out. Or it may be something you do to your hair. But it is not what scares many dogs and cats as summer storms arrive.
