Science…and running. (I am sure they mix somehow, but not in this entry)


Every Monday and Friday I am a teacher.

I teach my little brothers.

Science.

They don’t exactly enjoy it.

I mean they are 10 (almost 11) and 9 so i can’t exactly expect them to sit still and be FASCINATED with science…but they could AT LEAST fake it!

No. For the most part, they are really good students. They sit next to me on the couch and draw while i read to them and then they do the questions at the end (with a little help from me).

I think today was just an… “off” day.

Anyways, i teach my brothers science during spanish class which my mom teaches and meets in our basement. Today the parents of 2 of the students said this: “Hi Claire. You wonderful person!” and i was like, “Hi!?” wondering WHY ON EARTH I WAS WONDERFUL!!! πŸ™‚ (I like to know these things) And she said she thinks it’s GREAT that i teach P and Ja science!!

It was really interesting because i never really realized that people would notice me teaching them, you know? I mean people have their own busy lives. Why would they care about what i was doing??

Ok…everything i am trying to write here is sounding really self-centered…so forget it. πŸ™‚

I ran 6 miles today! yay me! πŸ™‚ I love running and i can’t WAIT to run my half-marathon!!! I think i have one picked out! It’s called the Chicago Monster Half-marathon!!! EEK!!! It is going to be so so fun!!

I am scared…

but excited.

Very excited.

Anyway, i am going to get sponsors…if i can find any! πŸ™‚
