I just don't seem to have a spare moment lately. Know the feeling? There are at least a hundred projects or more I want to dig into and I seem to get nowhere. School is really busy now - so much to do there I can't keep up. Or maybe I am moving slower - probably that.
I did pull out my much loved gel pens and do my inchie for Every Inchie Monday. The word was earth. I really love the sparkle on this one. Of course I had inspiration as this last week I took my class to the planetarium. Oh my goodness they loved it. One little boy just kept going on and on about how much he wanted to go again. I love it when experiences like that are available.
I remember one time during one of my first years of teaching, I planned to take my very small church school group to the mall to a petting zoo they had set up in the center. I had ten children in my mixed age group class (I was the only teacher - yikes a one room school). So I piled my crew into my volkswagen van and off we went. The moment we stepped inside, a little first grader named DP was in total amazement but not at the animals. As he said of the bunnies, pigs and such, "I see those all the time in the back yard." It was the mall. We had to ride the escalator, go up and down in the elevator and walk around to every store so he could see all this "wonderment". He lived up on a nearby mountain and this was like entering a foreign world. That was close to 40 years ago and I have often wondered where DP is. I hope life has been kind to that precious boy and he has seen lots of "wonderment" in his life.
The other challenge I completed was one for Diane Clancy. We had to use tangles that began with the letters FUN. I used fengle, florz, nzeppel, and up and across. Lots of fun to work on.
Thank you for dropping by and indulging my trip down memory lane. I hope you are having a wonderful day and it is full of sunshine, and of course a bit of "wonderment" for you!! Hugs!
