Coincidentally, the Special Olympic Winter Games were being held in in North Bay this same weekend, and our small plane was packed with coaches trying to settle their very excited special olympians.
Foolishly, I had left my marking in my suitcase, which was not with me in the cabin. I did, however, have my laptop, and availed myself of the opportunity to continue working on an upcoming math unit on Data Management which my instructional coach and I had started preparing the previous week, and which I hoped to begin with my Grade 8s on Monday.
The workshop itself was held in a small boardroom at the local early years centre, which also housed a most impressive toy lending library.
I sent them all away with homework, and the promise of following up with an online session in a few weeks, if at all possible.
On the way back to the airport the next afternoon, we drove by an old mine, called "the Glory Hole", hehe. Took some pics... rather enchanting in the snow.
Since Simon had spent the night at his dad's, Alex and Tats and I wandered down to the lake on our own in the afternoon, after enjoying a nice, long sleep in, and investigated the icy landscape.
