The planets must have aligned today, that’s all I can say. This is how my day went.
When I left the house this morning, the sun was shining and the air had a slight coolness to it. In fact, it was in the 60s when I got to school this morning. It was like… summer in New York. Lovely fall Florida weather.
All three of my classes came through polite, mostly attentive, and in good moods. Because of this, I was able to teach everything I planned to teach today without running out of time. That seldom happens, so I was pretty pumped about that! And when I met with my small groups, the kids actually did some thinking about what they read, recognizing cause and effect relationships, and oh yeah… one of them even INFERRED!!!
The day ended with dinner at one of my favorite restaurants with my son and his dad. The boy sold his car yesterday and had a wallet full of money burning a hole in his pocket. So he spent it on us.
