Today was the zoo. it was a successful field trip, overall. one excitable kid puked right before we left. his dad was a parent volunteer & said "ah. he's fine. just nervous" so he went. i made him take a barf bucket for the bus ride. then a mom was late & we almost left without her. which would have meant that I would have had to take a group of kids. i would not have been happy! i thoroughly enjoying parading around the zoo waving and chatting with students & parents, sipping on a dr pepper. i also got to enjoy the bird show. and, i got to see the "ghost of the bayou" - the white alligator, which is on special exhibit right now. Here's a picture, not of ours (my camera was acting up, so none of the pictures I took actually worked. suck. time for a new camera!) All I know is that when I got back (mind you - yesterday was a 23,000 step day. Long & exhausting!) I was so tired, that I wasn't able to listen to simple questions & form answers properly. Luckily, my friend Ranae invited me (and my class) into her room to watch a video. PHEW! I could relax and be brain dead for a while. It was a hot day & I got sun, but not on my parted scalp, because I'm no dumby & I greased it up this morning with 30 SPF. YAY. I hate burnt cracks somethin' fierce!
So I'm sorry I'm dull & didn't blog (much/well) today. I've got sun. I came home and drank so so so much water. I am going to bed, as soon as I can drag myself out of this chair & in to wash my face.
