I woke up this morning, early, ready to go to Boot Camp (fitness, not the real thing) and the first thing I see is my laptop and it strikes me that my slicing streak has come to an end. I fell asleep last night on the couch and didn’t do my blog post!
I’ll post two today. I should have been inspired to write yesterday. I got to experience Scientist in the School for the first time. My youngest had the program in her class and I was a volunteer. I had no idea what to expect. I thought I would be wandering around helping out here and there. It turns out I was teaching a station! Luckily everything was laid out really well. I’m pretty science ignorant. I’m not really proud of that, but I got through science memorizing stuff until Grade 11 when you actually had to understand the concepts and then I was out.
The kids were learning about energy and they seemed to have a really good time. I was busy all afternoon and didn’t get a chance to see my daughter “in action” as much as I would have liked, but I did enjoy putting faces to all the names she mentions.
Her teacher asked, with a laugh, if I was now considering a move to elementary from secondary. I replied with a laugh. Although I did enjoy my different kind of day, little kids other than my own aren’t for me. I’m glad I participated, though!
