A full teaching day after the Northern Lights (at last!)
I have noticed that the air seems thinner here. I'm not sure why... we're right by the ocean, so we're not at a high altitude, but that's how it feels when you're outside. Lisa (the technology teacher) and I were talking about it today and wondering if it's the lack of moisture... The relative humidity in the school stays at about 8%, where Sean and I have a hard time trying to keep our house down around 50%. Whatever it is, it makes you feel like you're living on mount Everest...
After a midnight romp with my camera, a busy day of teaching and all the fresh air of being duty, I can honestly say that I breathed a sigh of relief when the kids headed home (whatever way they could!).
Lots of kids opt out of the journey home and stay around for a quite a while playing on the equipment if it's a particularly glorious day, though!
