playing with plewe this weekend was a blast! i was glad to have her company and am sorry to say she heads back to seattle this weekend. one of my favorite parts of the trip was having her in the shotgun position. any time i pulled a fancy maneuver - such as a u-turn across a couple lanes of traffic - her foot would go up on the dashboard to brace herself. i wonder if she's thought through what would happen if an accident really did occur with her foot up there. might not be so pretty. she told us that joseph has noticed this same behavior in her and calls it the "danger alert." somehow that turned into "danger foot" for us. she'd even give us color levels alerting us to the level of danger imminent.
i wish i'd taken more photos of the trip. i have a few flower shots that i'll hopefully get around to blogging before the day is out.
right now i'm dealing with lesson preparation and grading and cleaning up the mess the sub allowed to happen while i was gone. getting a sub sure can be a shot in the dark. this one was didn't turn out so well, but at least i wasn't here to witness the mayhem in person. and at least the lesson i left wasn't totally crucial or necessary for other lessons. it was only a prep sort of thing for our end of level tests that begin this week. hmmm, i better track down my set of tests sooner than later.
