    ALWAYS makes me happy.

    Me too! During baseball season, several of my adult ESL students express an interest in the sport, especially since a Padres game is a short trolley ride away. I've often used the "Who's on First?" script as part of the week's lesson for my upper intermediate or advanced students.

    Now, that particular class is one that I'd like to sit in on! I bet you all have a ball....no pun intended!

    We do! It's one of my favorites, and I'm always happy like you wouldn't believe when someone requests it. There's always so much laughter during those lessons!

    My simple thing is that after working on a huge statewide project for kids that culminated today, I get to sleep in. It will probably be very chilly in the morning and I will be nestled in my very comfy bed with no alarm to wake me. And no huge project hanging over me. I plan to put a book beside my bed so that when I finally decide to wake up, I will grab the book and read for a while.
