I decided to take a photo walk through my day in order to figure out just what it is that takes up all my time. On Thursdays I have lots of admin time and just teach three French classes. I began school at 8 am with a meeting about next week's grade three lessons, then herding children before the bell rang. I forgot to take pictures, though. I'm sure you can imagine...
9 am - Trevor led the whole school in physical activity over the PA system, jumping on one foot in the office as he gave instructions. The music blared through the entire building as kids and teachers everywhere participated. Except me. Tee hee!
10:35 am - I took a walk at recess with little Jonah, practicing obedience. I'm not sure that 15 minutes will do it for him...
10:45 am - I taught my grade two French classes; they're very sweet and are excited to learn French!
12:05 pm - I reviewed some grade three French work. Not terribly impressed.
1:15 pm - after a lunch time meeting, I spent some time at my desk reviewing some professional development goals and planning the next meeting. Do you see the pretty jar of jam a parent gave me yesterday?
2:20 pm - administration meeting with Ellen and Val. It sounds very serious, but we seemed to spend an inordinate amount of time laughing about silly things. And no, that's not red wine in my glass.
4:00 pm - a few of us, including a teacher from another school, gathered for a worship practice. We are leading devotions for the big 2-day convention coming up in early October.
5:35 pm - Awwww, it's Molly! Just as I was getting ready to leave, Loree's sweet puppy came trotting into the office to play!
5:45 pm - This was a lovely moment. As I was getting into my car, I noticed a lot of birdsong coming from the bushes. They were full of tiny little birds playing and singing together.
6:10 pm - Hanging out on the freeway... I couldn't drive in the HOV lane, as I didn't have any passengers.
6:40 pm - After my chiropractor's appointment, I crossed the road to get sushi for dinner. Yum!
7:10 pm - Dinner at last! Big Bear and Little Joe were very pleased to see me come home laden with food. Joe is missing his big brother, but at moments like this, he might be happier to have less competition at the dinner table! Look at that salmon sashimi - my favorite!
I'm still not sure what I did all day...
