Ninety-eight yesterday and it's at least that hot today if not hotter. Morning swim was nice, afternoon swim not so much.
Had to have the bugman out for an in-between spraying, he says everyone's having problems with bugs wanting to come in out of the heat. My house is not that cool, but they're coming in anyway.
Ordered a new book to play, Opera for the Piano, late intermediate to advanced and it's hard. I'm enjoying it, but it makes my head ache sometimes.
Saw a pretty good movie this week Tomorrowland with George Clooney and Hugh Laurie. An interesting take on how much of the future is a self-fulfilling prophecy.
And finished another book, Among Schoolchildren by Tracy Kidder, written in 1988, but just as true today. He observed a fifth grade classroom for a year. It's a school in Massachusetts that had just been integrated and there are loads of Puerto Rican children.
This could have been my class except the kids were Mexican and 3rd grade.
It was mentioned how hard student teaching is and the need to learn how to manage student behavior, something you only learn after you become a teacher.. I was lucky, before I became a teacher I was an aide in special ed. and worked with students ranging from learning disabilities to behavioral disorders to physically handicapped. When I got my own class it almost seemed easy. Good book.
