Subbed the whole day at Laurel Creek Elementary, in third grade.  Another beautiful drive. I like schools like Laurel Creek, because people smile at each other.  This school emphasizes kindness and compassion, and it shows on the faces of the school secretaries and other adults around campus.

The kids were very well behaved. First thing this morning there was rehearsal for a school-wide dance program, in the cafeteria.  It was so much fun and really energizing to watch.  The dance teacher was amazing, captivating a hundred kids.

One of the kids i had in the resource room last week, who did not like me and stormed out, was in today's class.  He ended up liking me.

The kids wrote in their journals, and i wrote along with them.  They were very impressed by how fast i wrote and how many pages i filled up.

During recess, a California Highway Patrol helicopter landed on the hard court, so we stayed out and listened to the presentation the deputy gave to the kindergartners for career day.

Kate invited Richard and I to her house in Benicia for wine and snacks. We sat in her bucolic backyard, surrounded by flowering quince, chirping frogs.  It got a little chilly as the sun went down, so we went inside and got warm in her lovely living room.
