This has been a most wild week. I attended a two-day student teaching seminar in Logan on Monday and Tuesday. Then Wednesday I started right in to my student teaching. I love my cooperating teacher. It is a great class and the kids are so cute. And I am completely exhausted at the end of the day. Who can even think about writing lesson plans or planning a ten-hour service project? December won't arrive too soon for me.
We also had a bit of excitement at our house yesterday and none of us were even home to enjoy it. There was a two-foot badger on the playground at my children's elementary school. The children were ushered into the school and apparently the badger decided without students he didn't want to be there any more, so he headed over the the church. That wasn't exciting enough either, so he wormed his way into our back yard. He apparently enjoyed himself as we have a nice hole in our garden where he tried to burrow himself. The school called animal control and we had numerous civil servants parked in front of our house (probably with lights flashing) and in our back yard, including three police officers, two animal control officers, and a couple of wildlife officials. They chased it out of our yard back to the church and caught it in the parking lot. What a sight that must have been?
It was definitely a wild week.
