I Wish

Random Post!

I’m not training today.  I’m on the verge of shin splints, I think.  Anyone know how to curb this or not have it happen?


So this song was on the radio while I was driving home today…

Anybody else remember Skee Lo?  Whatever happened to him?  Good times.

School News

Two great stories from first grade today! 

For the math lesson the students had to partner up and make different designs with pattern blocks.   One partner would make the design and then have to give the other partner clues and directions as to how to make it.  I was listening into one pair…

S1-  put the yellow hexagon down (S2 does so)

S1 – What is your favorite animal that is the opposite of a dog?

S2 -a cat!

S1 – That’s right! (totally cute that she told her she was correct about her favorite animal).  Okay you are going to put two green triangles on top of the hexagon like cat ears (S2 does).  Then take your two red trapezoids and stick them on the side of the hexagon like cat whiskers, meow! (yes she actually said meow). 

It was great that the one student how to get the other to make the shape.  She knew that she liked cats and went with it.  This was of course after many trials of trying to get her to put the shapes in a specific manner without cat clues.

The other story involves this sentence, “Do you want to sneak up to the trash can when nobody’s looking?”  I read this and laughed.  Not because I’m means spirited, heavens no, but because it was funny.  I asked the student, “Why are you sneaking up on a trash can when no one is looking?”  He told me, “Because I am throwing away a used tissue.” 

Well, duh, of course!
