What a Weekend!

School is OUT! Well the students are done. I have a  bit more to accomplish.  We had two good field trips this last week.  What fun!  They went right along with our unit and added so much.  We also had step up day where next year's kids visit. They were all on their honey moon behavior! We'll see but I think it will be okay.

Saturday I rode 63 miles. I took a 50 mile route I do and extended it in a few places. I am hoping to do a century on Saturday and wanted another 60 under my belt.  Last time I did one I was exhausted. This time I felt like I could have done some more miles - a good sign.  I went back to Crown Point where we had gone on a field trip.  It was much quieter without all the students.

It was strange not to have many excited kids running around.

I always love this bridge.


I stopped to take this picture and the mother? father? was not very
happy. I thought it was going to dive bomb me.



Sunday we went out to breakfast with Jameson!  Then we went back to his place and just hung out with him and Jaxon which is always a win.  Then when we got home we left to go for a bike ride. Wait, is it Mother's Day, not Father's Day? Whatever.......it worked for me.  It was a delightful day and we got in a quick ride on one of my favorite routes.  My husband enjoyed it too. I didn't get into school like I had planned but it was worth it. Yes, I now have to go in tomorrow but I'll manage!

This is actually near the end of our ride.

I suspect there's a century in your future this summer? You should make a biking calendar out of all your gorgeous pics.

A great ride indeed! You will be good for the century. I can just imagine how quiet it was compared to with the students...

Wonderful weekend!

And smart decision not to go to school on Sunday. The day was so much better this way.

I seriously wonder if there is any happier person on earth than a teacher who's just finished the term. I can sense the freedom and joy and anticipation of filling the student-free days with whatever you want to do. Enjoy!
