Teaching on Thursday afternoon was a challenge. It was scary, exciting and scary! Mostly scary! But I did it!!! The kids were 4th graders--a sweet bunch. That is probably what I enjoyed the most--interacting with the kids. I thoroughly messed up teaching them how to convert decimals to fractions and vice versa. I can do it but I think I did it the wrong way. Hopefully their real teacher can get them straightened out!

We left Friday morning for Springfield MO and have been here for the last two days. Friday afternoon I got in the hot tub. It was HOT! But I got in--plus this year I was brave enough to take off my long sleeved and to the knees cover-up and actually get in.

Yesterday we went to Wilson's Creek Civil War battlefield site--we probably walked two miles which was good for me cause I'm eating too much I fear. I try to be as careful as possible and never clean my plate.

Went back in the hot tub this morning while hubby was bowling and now it's off to Branson!

P.S. first blog I ever wrote on my phone. Steve Jobs really did put the world in our pockets!

    4th graders - yay! That grade seems like such a good starting point for you, kids that age are often quite sweet. WOO HOO FOR YOU on the hot tub. I am so proud of you. YAY!

    I'm glad the kids were well behaved for you -- you can look forward to your next day of substitute teaching:) And you'll figure out the fractions/decimals thing;)

    Glad you're having a good time. I can understand messing up those fractions dealing with my grandkids and their homework!
