multicolour paperclips

tomorrow i get to do something a little bit out of the ordinary.

for my work day that is.

i’m helping judge a “history fair” at one of the local schools, alongside some political suits and my boss. you remember science fairs in elementary school? similar to that but about local history; they get to create a project on a subject of their own choosing, and i think it’s an interesting way to get kids excited about history besides just reading it out of a text.  i believe the age range is gr. 4-7 and i’m kind of hoping i see some gems like this picture that was sent to me after the last round of gr. 2’s visited the museum. i was chuffed to realize they did listen.

anything out of the ordinary happen to you this week?

  1. I think I have some 100 years ago clothes in my closet actually. My favourite cardigan certainly falls into that category.

    I’ll bet you will have a blast, being all judgly! For some reason, I picture you striding purposefully from exhibit to exhibit, in the no nonsense manner of a dog show judge.

  2. Mine does as well. Cardigans are like good wine, they’re better as they age.

    Ha! I’ll try out my best Jane Lynch à la Best in Show. Perhaps wear boots with heels…frighten the kids with the click clack. No, that’s just cruel.
