Have you ever seen the Mississippi River? I mean really, truly seen it? Thought about how much power there is across those couple hundred yards? All that water, all that sediment. Some coming traveling from the tops of the Rocky Mountains, some washed off a field twenty feet away. All those particles being pushed and shoved hundreds of miles until it reaches the Delta.
And then is just stops. Heavier stuff sinks immediately. Lighter stuff just floating out into the ocean.
That's what I feel like right now.
All the rushing has subsided.
I can breathe again.
I can focus again.
I can teach again.
I can visit my home again.
It got a little ridiculous there for a couple weeks. The insanity that is a robotics competition took all of us by surprise and left all of us more than a little shell shocked.
Everything happened so quickly that I have not even begun to process it all.
So here are my goals this week:
*Finish cleaning up my lab room.
*Reflect on the robotics competition.
*Realize the miracle change in my chemistry modeling classroom.
*Outline eportfolios for astronomy and one chemistry section.
If someone knows what I need to do, I think I will be more likely to actually get it done :)
