Thursdays from School
Combining my photography challenge and news from school this week, here I am in my classroom. I forgot to have the kids take some pictures of me so I had to do it myself! In case you don't know, we moved in to a brand new building in September so everything is new, new, new!!! It's so awesome with all the light and energy efficient features. I teach 17 wonderful grade 3 students and we are all looking forward to summer holidays!! There is still lots of work to be done outside as we don't have a playground or grass. We go across to the highschool grounds for recess now. Not very many people get to work in a brand new school during the course of their career so I consider myself very fortunate!
It's been raining here again today. We have had a very rainy first half of June. If the sun ever comes out, the crops and gardens are going to grow by leaps and bounds. Thank goodness I got the weeds under control in my garden before this or the poor little plants wouldn't have had a chance. Our lawn is starting to look like a hayfield! The pastures are thick and lush this year which is great for our cattle.
On a side note, "Happy Belated Birthday" to my little brother, Brent. He's one year away from the big 5-0. He called me tonight and we had a very long chat - don't get to do that very often. He's a farmer and a pilot who owns an aerial applicating business. I've got alot of memories of escapades that this guy was involved in during his younger days!
