So I *didn’t* bother to list my summer schedule as planned before it actually began, but let me catch you up. [Actually, this list is intended to just remind me of everything. Even with this, I know there are many things I’m missing.]
Two weeks ago: Took a GIS class at UCA. It’s designed for teachers, so it crams a whole semester into 5 days plus some extra work to be completed over the next month. The class — very informative. The teacher — very knowlegeble and entertaining. My classmates — well, that’s a story for another time. In the end I learned a whole lot and consider it time well spent.
Last week: SEPA!!! This will turn into multiple posts, so I’ll just mention that I left on Monday the 15th and I returned on Saturday the 20th. Wonderful, wonderful time. Perhaps the best SEPA ever?
Today: Father’s Day. Garrett felt sick. Liam got sick. Geneva was exhausted from the past week and from taking care of Garrett and Liam. Gavin and Miles helped me out in the garden which was in total disrepair after the previous week. –Oh, and happy summer solstice to you all!
This week: Tuesday I have an eye exam followed by a test at UCA. I’m participating in an evaluation of a new Algebra II teaching strategy for the state department. I’m in the control group. That, also, is a story for another time.
At the moment I have nothing more scheduled for the summer until July 27 when I’ll be working on a science standards project at UCA with Dr. William Slaton for two weeks. The day after that ends, my school year begins again.
