Too Chicken to Post

Hello Neighbour

I'm really sorry to bother you but I feel impressed to let you know that either yourself or someone of your acquaintance performed an impressive burn out at the corner of *****St and *****Gr last night. I do not wish to quash the youthfulness of the driver of the vehicle but I ask that this person be mindful that my husband is a shift worker and as a parent of three young children he seriously covets what little sleep he can catch. The antics of the driver last night disturbed his sleep and I ask that you or your acquiantance please refrain from this type of behaviour in the future.

Thank you for your consideration.

Just because you asked so nicely L-J

I'm getting much better at this teaching gig. Since I last posted I have done another 25 days of teaching practice and I have learnt so many lessons. I have a new mentor teacher and a new classroom. This time I am teaching the year 4 girls. They are beyond gorgeous and every morning when they say prayer (Catholic school) at least one of them prays that Miss Vojnovic (me) will have a nice day. They also pray for the dead loved ones of friend's families. Like one girl's mum and the teacher's cousin every week if not evey day. They have not a single deceitful bone in their bodies combined. For example today I took in money for the introduction to this topic for maths and when they had finished handling the $100. $50, $20, $10, and $5 bills and discussing then I moved onto a different subject and left the money sitting in plain site at the front of the class (I know , stupid) but when I realized my mistake I went to get the money and it was still there (all of it!) (I know, unbelievable). Hearts of gold. These pictures are of the display we made today to mark the beginning of our space project. I'd like to thank Corrie for looking out for some science stuff for me eventhough she has been super busy summer studying and getting her class ready for the new school year. And thanks to mum for fielding all my phone calls of late about resource stuff.
'Our Solar System' title is all glitter.
We added some whimsy to our solar system with martians and various other fantastical space objects.

The planets are to scale (sort of) as though the sun were 4meters in diameter.
