Swing Month

March is a big swing month here as we will get ever increasing amounts of daylight. At the moment the sun is up for just over 9 hours. By the end of the month, it will be up for about 14.5 hours. Daylight Savings Time is just around the corner too. Hard to believe. Yes I love March. We also get more inclement weather this time of the year it always seems as the increasing sun gives us more fog and cloud (just like today). But I take it all instride. After 5 years, I still find it stunning how quickly the days lengthen.

Today I find myself being a big sloth. I'm back into the classroom tomorrow after our Professional Development Week here. The sessions I had were very good (classroom management strategies and ESL strategies). Much of it was more applicable to junior or intermediate grades but I did pick up a few teaching ideas I look forward to trying out in the future. AND the information was helpful should I decide to take the plunge and get into administration in the future.

I also want to stick close to my laptop today as my sister down in Ontario has been feeding me updates on my nephew's play-off games. His team tied up their series yesterday with an overtime win and they play again later this afternoon. Cole should be eligible for the draft in 2014. I know he'd love to play for Ottawa, his favorite team, and given how crummy Ottawa's goalie situation has been of late, I'm sure they could use him. Good luck kiddo!

Thanks for thinking of us. Cole liked the part about the NHL draft - well we lost our game on sunday - Cole played amazing (and I'm not just saying that because I'm his mom) Can't win a game if you don't get any shots on net even if your goalie stands on his head. We are heading back to Dunnville on Saturday March 8th for game 4 at 2:10pm and then hopefully we will be back in town on Sunday for an afternoon game. I will keep you posted on how we make out.
