The Senior 1 lessons were repeats or continuations of previous topics. Ms. Long's classes continued to look at foods and healthy choices, while Mr. O repeated his lesson on festivals and celebrations with his three other groups
The afternoon was again typical for us, naps and reviewing the next day's lesson. Ms. Long got in a little workout, while Mr. O viewed the video he downloaded the day before.
Our evening was more singing practice after a few strolls around the athletic field track. As we walked over the building, we saw Jane and her son, Devin. Mr. O did a double-take when he saw Devin. He was wearing a t-shirt that had the name of Mr. O's university, Illinois State, on it! Devin had no idea why Mr. O was so excited, but it was definitely a photo moment and another example of how small our world has become. We also saw one of our students with an "I'm with him!" t-shirt that his class was going to wear Friday night for the singing contest. Ms. Long was determined to find the "I'm with her!" t-shirt! People like to wear t-shirts with interesting graphics on them, even if they don't have a clue about what the words say or mean!
Once we got to singing practice and warmed up, we moved outdoors to organize the teacher group on risers. Of course, Mr. O was where he expected, top row, center, and tallest in the group! There was a male teacher just a few inches shorter. But, the big news was that Ms. Long was the tallest woman in the group! She was excited about that.
