Thankful Day 2

Whoa!  This cold weather is car-zay!  I went on a field trip with students yesterday to a barge in the Elizabeth River.  This barge provided information {and allowed the kids to be “scientists” and work with various tools} about the river and how pollution is affecting it.  A good lesson on the environment with real life application thrown in.  HOWEVER, it was SO SO SO cold.  I was pretty much frozen in the first five minutes.  I’m sure the kids were as well.  It made it pretty difficult to pay attention especially when one station was in the shade.  I felt like a snake seeking sunlight!  It goes without saying that one thing I’m thankful for today is HEAT and warm clothes to bundle up in as temps seem to be stuck in the low 40s for today.

I’m thankful for…

1.  Holden…and all his questions, thoughts, etc. that he likes to share these days.

2.  the ability to be strong enough to hold my 30+ pound child and have a dance party for about 10 minutes{!}  It was a workout.

3. paid vacations!

4.  heat!

Doing a little nature time of our own.

Stay warm!
