A cool, cold island

I’m sorry I haven’t posted at all for the month of February, and this one’s long overdue… I’ve been suffering from a condition known to teachers as EDOFMA… aka, the Eternal Darkness of February, March, and April. So far I have survived February, which is strange because my birthday is right in the middle of the month (Feb. 16) and you’d think that alone would be enough to pull me out of EDOFMA! But alas, it wasn’t…

I’m just kidding, actually, and the month has just gone by faster than expected. My students are furthering their studies on piano, guitar, and ukulele, and I personally have been spending more time playing ukulele too. I’ve also been taking more of a liking to Instagram, and recently decided to get more into photo albums as well, using my Instagram photos for a possible future album that would also use the Project Life system (if any of you out there use Project Life, please feel free to leave a comment about how you like it!). 

Anyway, the weather on the island has been beautiful, snowy, warm, beautiful, icy, and more recently, a mixture of warm and icy. The schoolyard is like an ice skating rink and I couldn’t imagine leaving the house without having Yak Trax on. On my way to school this afternoon, I took a few photos of the scene down by the boardwalk:

   
    

  

A recent snowshoe trip to Fort Holmes provided me with even more sunny photos:

        

A group of friends and I also recently built a fort inside Fort Holmes. It was fun! The parks director, along with some fort employees and I built this fort with snow, blocks of snow, a canon made of cardboard tubes, blue water, and a flag. The view up there was also a sight:

        

Lately it’s been harder to get around because of all the ice, but there are still great views to be had! I hope March brings as many more great views as February.

    Thank you for the pictures Heather. My principal said to me on Tuesday that, “February is the longest short month in education.” So I understand what you mean by EDOFMA. 😊 Have a great weekend!
