Winter break is over and it was back to school today.
Fortunately the roads weren't too bad when I headed down the lake.
Unfortunately lots of deer and turkeys made travel a bit dicey.
Fortunately I arrived at school a bit early so I could reacclimate myself.
Unfortunately I fell on the ice rink parking lot and had to use the bumper of a truck to pull myself up.
Fortunately my teaching partner didn't have his digital camera with him as he helped me.
Unfortunately I had a sore elbow, knees, and lower back. ( I am better tonight!)
Fortunately all the children arrived to school safe, but some very late.
Unfortunately two buses slid off the road and had to be rescued.
Fortunately my students WANTED to go to the library and get new books because they had finished reading books over break.
Unfortunately the students that arrived on the late buses missed a trip to the library.
Fortunately students picked up where they left off before break writing news stories.
Unfortunately their teacher (me) couldn't seem to remember all the five W's and H in a news story.
Fortunately everyone made it through our first day back to school in good shape.
Unfortunately the turkeys and deer were still waiting to run across the road when I drove home.
