I got home from work about half an hour ago. I am having a great day, but outside it's raining quite heavily and the wind is ripping pieces off the trees and sending them flying past my window. While driving home a gust almost blew me off the road.
I had my new student - Donna - today. Wow, I adore her! She immediately got interested in doing the yearbook. I had her make an autograph page in Photoshop, first. The she photographed Alex's Balinese mask (a real one) to learn how to use the camera. I asked her if she's afraid of teachers - no, she said. "Well, I am," I told her. She's already been around to all the teachers to set up times to take photos - that was by her own initiative.
My two little girls worked on their comic strip, and began work on valentines. Sabra kept asking, "How do you spell "valentine?" After a couple of times I told her to tell ME. She did - I said, "Why are you asking me when you know how to spell it?" She is too used to not knowing and not needing to remember.
Then we were in the virtual world and it was good and the time flew by.
Alex brought me the nice turkey dinner school had made for lunch, so I took it home. It was very good. Alex replaced one of Montrose's computers, so that was excellent! There's flooding again, and septic problems, so I'd be unsurprised if school wound up closing later in the week. The Chehalis Rez children were sent home early, as that river is flooding (as usual).
