I had a three hour break with no teaching today due to a long assymbly attached to my lunch period so I got in a great gully run along with a good hot tub soak in the middle of my work day. Still a bit muddy and icy in some places.

Makes up for having to be here until 8 tonight for incoming Freshmen open house. Abby's excited.

I'd be excited too if my Dad was the coolest teacher at the school! :-)

My first year teaching I won the teacher superlative award in the yearbook for "most likely to pass as a student".

I don't win that anymore.

That's because you don't ever have your head buried in a smartphone. You're a dead giveaway as non-student!

That's how every work day should be. Minus the staying late.

That's right Jason. When are we going to become civilized?

I need to move to a country where they take work less serious and play more serious.
