Try something completely new!!!
Each Friday for the month of October hubby and I are enjoying date night out of town.
It's about a thirty minute drive to the next town where we find ourselves enjoying going somewhere new each week for dinner and have been taking a pottery class together.
As you can see below, I have no idea what I am doing!! LOL!!!
Right after I took this picture, my whole piece slid right off the plate.
(Insert laughing outloud emoji!)
It didn't help that I was tired and feeling a little impatient with myself as this evening also found me wrapping up a very fun, activity filled week with my 2nd graders...
...and it seems like trying something new is rejuvenating for the young heart as well. Yesterday in the classroom we went on a Google Expedition Virtual Field Trip to the Lincoln Memorial!
To quote one my students: "This was the best field trip ever!" And I admit, it was amazing!!
I know this next picture is blurry, but this is what the inside of the goggles looks like:
As we enthusiastically prepared for this virtual field trip, we pretended like we were taking the Magic School Bus to the other side of the country. I have to admit, this next picture of my student pointing and telling his partner to turn and look was my very favorite moment.
We ended our Abraham Lincoln unit creating peanut butter/pretzel log cabins...on pajama day! (Yes! I wore my polka-dotted pajamas to school...hmmmm....no picture of that! LOL!!)
As you can see by their smiles and as this little one shared, her "happy dance"...life is good!
gerund or present participle: rejuvenating
