Today was the beginning of the semester for my English class, so it was a busy morning preparing. Jasper also had some assignments to finish up because he missed a couple of classes when he had the flu.
Three of my students dropped out over the break, which is about typical. I always miss the ones who leave, but on this occasion the silver lining is that we can all fit around my dining room table now!
We started off by watching a documentary that we didn’t get a chance to watch in December because of my illness. Also, it makes a gentler start to the new semester.
Normally I send the kids outside for recess, but this afternoon it was pouring down rain so they had to stay inside. I don’t think they minded.
Since class ended the temperature has dropped dramatically and there is talk of possible snow tonight. I started a new knitting project, making three current projects now. Not sure when I think I’m going to get all that knitting done!
