Thursday was my (NEW) district's P.E. professional development day, where all of the P.E. teachers come together to go through many different training events, informative classes, and well...play games.:)
Some perks of the day:
Some see traffic -- Some see a gorgeous view of downtown Chi. I think I get excited about seeing this every day because I used to drive away from it every day for work. It's a sight that makes me smile so big...I can't believe I live, AND NOW WORK, here!
What Harry referred to as "Job SWAG"!
A DELICIOUS (and free) lunch!
And games. So many games! To us, this is the real meaning of Professional Development.
As you can see, we have a good time! I thought about my Kinfolk (Kin = Family = Kinesiology majors, if you will) that I went to college with, and felt a little sad that I wasn't experiencing this with any of them. So many people knew each other from college, from different classes, made inside jokes about professors and other former classmates. I don't mean to whine; this just made me a little homesick. I just reminded myself of how blessed I was to be here, with all of these happy Kines people, all sharing these new, fun experiences!
Yesterday morning's run (7) was kind of spooky, haha! I haven't run down this street in the dark, so I was a little weary. I felt fine after a couple of miles. I'm not even sure why I was concerned; it's very well-lit, and the early rises are friendly. There was one part of the sidewalk that was completely ripped up. Woaw.
My first kolaczki! At least I thought that's what the teacher who brought them said. Or I think. (Totally chime in if you know what this buttery dream is!) The teachers at my school are already poking at me for what I bring to eat for lunch, or even the fact that I do bring a lunch.:P
For lunch, the Assistant Principal bought all of us some tacos! NOMMMMMMMMM NOM NOM!
I just finished up my 20-miler (hooray, first one of the marathon training is donesies!), so I'm going to relax for the rest of this Saturday. I wanted to leave you with this...because it's presh.
Have a fantastic three-day weekend!
