Halloween

Halloween is not much fun now that we don't have kids at home who like dressing up. I do get to dress up for school and that is kind of fun.

Since we are usually in the middle of our worm project in October, I usually  hand out dirt and worms. Otherwise, Halloween is pretty low key.

October trip to Fresno

Marc and I drove to Fresno so that we could visit Mom and Wayne. We did the now traditional bowling. While we waited for a lane at Fresno State, we played some pool. We are not very good at either. We also went to  the reopening of the renovated Downtown Mall. They allowed cars to drive on it after many years of it being a pedestrian mall. There was a display of old-fashioned cars, Fresno style (they were all low-riders). It was a fun trip. thumb.P_20171021_075232_BF.jpg

We also played some pinochle. Marc got 1500 trump, so that was noteworthy.

Fall 2017

School started two weeks before the eclipse.That was two weeks earlier than usual, which meant that the first semester will be out before Christmas. That is a nice change. It was still difficult to start so early. Our summer seemed way too short.

Anyway, I bought a new pet for my classroom. The class voted and named the new snake Gucci. We also got a betta fish named Bubbles.

We got  teacher appreciation tickets to ride the High Roller.Wayne came out in September so we did this with him and Lara.

We'd all gotten tickets to see The curious Incident of the Dog in the Night time.It was not amazing. We all thought it was way too long. The staging was interesting though.
