Flooding and tornado


Raindrops keep falling on my head

It is one of those Mondays that you just want to curl up with a good book and some hot tea/cocoa while watching the rain. But I am here at work and have prep first period. So rather then doing something productive like my paper that is due this week, I rather email you all. lol

Well it is raining yet again today. So that means flooding in some areas since we are not dried out from the last rains. Lucky for us Easter was dry-ish. So my niece and nephew were able to get outside a bit. I took the two kids on a nature hike in the woods... it was their first ever. Loads of fun but my nephew likes to boulder.... freaked me out since he is only 6 and i couldn't figure out how the heck he could get up so fast.

They also helped me drop off my recycles at the nice center here in town. A retired teacher came up to us and I thought.. oh what did we do wrong. But she went up to the kids and told them how proud she was of them for helping me. I guess she overheard the kids helping me divide everything properly. My niece is the anal one.... and she is good at this type of thing.

I will post some pics ASAP.

Not much else this month.I am working on a presentation about environmental education in schools. It has been really fun and distracting me from my loads of other homework. I can't believe it is April. I hope the weather will have some sunny days soon. The garden is still too wet to plant anything.
