I went to my classroom a little bit yesterday morning. I can’t do any cleanout yet, because there is a lot of stuff in there that looks like it belongs to someone else, so I need to ask a co-worker. It’s the middle of the summer here though, because school doesn’t start until September 7, so no one is coming in. Maybe I can catch someone at church tomorrow…
I do want to have an aquarium in my classroom. I decided to go to an aquarium store to look around. It was so fun! The guy in the store was super friendly, and as we chit-chatted, I said where I worked, and he said he knew the school. 🙂
After the aquarium store, I stopped at Lowe’s and Home Depot to look at plants again. Fish AND plants? What a wonderful day!
At the garden centers, instead of the plants, I am almost more fascinated by the bees and butterflies that cover the plants. There are so many bugs here on the mainland! It’s amazing!
The most amazing bug I saw yesterday was a giant green beetle. After a little internet searching, I found out it is a kind of scarab called a Figeater Beetle. It’s called that because it likes sweets! It was flying from flower to flower drinking nectar. How cool!
