Push It Along

School Take Two

Today went almost exactly according to plan. I don't know if I did anything different or if I just was more in tune with a 6th grade mind but today went much better. There was interaction and communication, in fact I was put to the test to keep the class under control which perhaps was a good thing to do on the first day. To be honest I was expecting the roles to be reversed between the two schools. Where one school was a little subdued in the past it was much more active this time around and vice-versa for the other school. I guess I still have a long way to go before I figure things out.

During integration, I left Fridays open for community projects but have decided that I will spend time at both schools to make the science class run a little smoother. This means that Friday will probably be my most hectic day but at least I will get a lot of exercise. I will leave the afternoon open but we will see how to best make it work.

My walks to and from school always seem to be eventful. If you payed closed attention to my last blog you know that there was a heavy rainstorm yesterday. During these downpours, temporary ponds are created around my village. One of the larger ponds was packed with these huge frogs this morning. It put me in the scientific mood, I have so many questions.

I think I found your frogs... African bullfrogs, or "Pixie" frogs. They dig holes, crawl in them, and make a watertight cocoon that they stay in until the rainy season, when they come out to mate. Apparently they are also very aggressive, and have big sharp teeth that they sometimes use on humans.
