So, I rode my bike today.
Too bad the "calm" wind was actually a crazy wind where I went. Anytime you stand up and pedal like crazy to go 5 mph DOWNHILL and then get blown at 15-20 mph UPHILL, something is wrong with the world.
Just to prove I'm not a big whiny baby (at least when it comes to the wind), I took this picture:
Isn't water supposed to go down when you pour it?
It turned out to be a fun little ride -- maybe not all I intended it to be -- but at least I got out. And I got to see my new pink stuff in action!
In other news, I survived my first week back with kids after winter break. They were pretty good, and all very excited to tell me about what santa brought them. I got a new student this week, who is has a lot of special needs. I'm very proud of my kids for welcoming her with open arms and being so sweet and helpful. It is always amazing to see how little kids look at new people. Hopefully this week will bring more encouraging signs that they are growing up and getting ready to make some good progress in the coming months.
In the meantime, I'm looking forward to a three day weekend next weekend, full of my first bike race of the season, potential snowshoeing, Partini with the girls, and some relaxation before starting up my masters class on the 20th! In the next few months, I will become an expert on the historical and legal background of bilingual education -- woooooo, can hardly contain my excitement for that one!
