The wind is whipping away outside, creating a "dark and stormy night" kind of feel to the evening. I'm halfway through my first intense week.
Tomorrow, I teach again, but I'm going to spend most of the period on an art project. Do any of you remember making "Coat of Arms" Shields in Middle School? I still remember this project to this day and can envision it hanging on the teacher's wall during parent night. I can even remember a couple of the pictures of me at my house and another of me doing gymnastics. I hope the kids in my classes will share some of my enthusiasm.
Then, I have a couple hours off before going to lead the after-school program at another middle school. God help me to rally the energy to lead a few games for those unfortunate (to have me as their leader) souls!
Final day of NaBloPoMo. What did I learn? That I have trouble with strict discipline. Yes, most definitely.
Also, that I'm going to keep doing it until I participate fully, including visiting and commenting more on other blogs. I may not participate next month but will again in the near future. As mentioned before, I like (and need) the kick in the butt to write frequently!
p.s. Sh/cm and I had a productive conversation tonight and were able to speak and hear each other with more love and less defensiveness/fear. I look forward to this weekend and getting a tree, as well as taking part in my Interplay Theatre group's Christmas gathering. We're going to eat yummy food, play games, and watch the video of our last performance.
