Thankful Thursday

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.

    I love this blog !! I love these “reports”. It makes me feel like I was there…….driving along the lake and remembering another fun day in that fresh, north country air (with a sweater on). Sounds like a great bunch of kids too. Life is good………
