Just Keep Swimming

This was our first full week since December. Technically, I can't even say that because I took Wednesday off after being snowed-in my driveway and crying. To be fair, I had a huge migraine since the previous day, so when I saw the snow and measured it physically impossible to dig out my car in time to get to work, I hit my breaking point. And the worst part of all? It was my best hair day of the whole week. Sad face.

In honor of a 5-day work week (thankfully, next week is our last one until March... I know!) I'm linking up with Jivey to share 5 gifs that describe too many moments in my day sometimes!

In science, we've been learning about vertebrates. Yesterday, we were reviewing the characteristics of fish. When asked what they use to swim, one student responded, "Wings!!!!"

After he was corrected, another student added, "But what about whales? Don't they have wings on the side?"

Which, somehow led to the question, "Why do fish swim in tornadoes?"

The classroom teacher informed him that those are called schools, to which he responded, "Wait... Fish go to school too?"

Sometimes... I just can't.

I also want to add that two of my bloggy friends, Joy in the Journey and Rosie's Rambles are hosting a Favorite Things Giveaway on their blogs. Be sure to stop by and enter to win! They've got some great prizes in store for you!!


  1. OMG this made me laugh out loud! Sometimes I seriously worry for the future of the world after having conversations with my students...thank goodness I am not the only one who hears this stuff. I wish I had a tape recorder...my blog would be even better. Sucks about your hair day/snowed in day...I would have cried too!

  2. HAHAHAHA...I'm so glad you added gifs! Of course I'm ecstatic that you added Nick and Jess! LOVE!
