A busy Thursday, too! Tonight, I’m thankful for:
- Members of the drama club at Colchester High School who were my technology saviors during my school visit today. These kids know their stuff, and I bet they’re amazing on stage, too. Tonight’s their opening night for The Actor’s Nightmare and Lovers. Break a leg, and thanks for your help!
- Colchester 8th graders on the Odyssey and Quest teams — a fantastic, interested audience this morning. My visit was part of their studies leading up to a big class trip — one team to Cape Cod and one to Boston. My 13-year-old self is officially jealous. My biggest class trip in school was to the local apple orchard.
- Another group of high energy, enthusiastic kids here…
…at Brandon’s Neshobe Elementary School. I spent an hour and a half with kids in the after-school program. That’s a long time for anyone to listen at the end of the day, but these kids were terrific and had great questions.
At the end of the day, I was thankful for a weather map that looked like this…
…and made the clouds look like this.
Snowstorms over the Adirondacks and Green Mountains left me driving through a little corridor of sunshine along the shores of Lake Champlain. It was absolutely stunning. I started the day worried about slippery roads, so this peaceful drive home was the perfect way to end it.
