My car wouldnt start after work today. The plugin cord got blown off by the wind and my truck sat all day without being plugged in. It was bound to happen! Hopefully it will start tomorrow after being pluggin in all night at school. Everything is just that much harder when it's this cold. I know you all must be sick of hearing about the cold, but that's really all that is going on these days.
My robotics team started back up with practice today, but I ended up sending several of the team members home early because they were just goofing off. With travel coming up next week for the state competition, I am really in a tough spot with a couple of these kids who dont pull there weight on the team. I really cant validate spending school money to bring a kid to Anchorage for the state tournament that doesnt help the team. What do you guys think? Does being on the team all year give you an automatic pass to travel to state with the team? Would it be wrong of me to tell a kid they cant come after spending the whole year with the team? I'm trying to work out this dilemma.
Our New Year's resolution is going well so far. If you dont remember, it was to FLOSS. Both Avery and I have been flossing at night.
I am really bummed that I am going to miss the K300 dog race this year. It is on the same weekend that the state robotics tournament is on. I was really looking forward to being involved with the race this year by volunteering, but NO!!!!!!!!
I'm taking some of my HS kids out on a field trip on Monday. We have a full agenda planned and it should be a great experience for the kids. I'll post pics after the trip. It seems like things never get any less busy. I always think to myself....everything will calm down after ________ is over and then I'll have time for __________. But it never works that way. After robotics is over, I still have some lessons with the Boy Scouts to finish up. I have a sleep over at the school with some of the 8th graders to plan. I still have to work on all the stuff for the class that I'm taking. I need to take a Praxis test if I want to remain certified to teach in the state of Alaska. I have to buy supplies, prepare, plan, and cook for a ThanksSuperbowl party. I need to find a place to get a job this summer! And I need to do all of this stuff in the next month or so! Geez! It's never ending!
Ok...it's past my bedtime, I should really get some sleep!
