Today I went back to check for ladybirds with my class after yesterday. The kids were happy to see one emerged. I hadn’t just made up this crazy ladybird life cycle story to them.
We also found several bees as I continue trying to teach a love of bees. There normal response is to try to hit them, which they need to get out of that habit.
After work I went home and we had something to celebrate. My partner, Amy, has got a new job. It’s just part time, but should fit well when Alice starts school. So we celebrated with a beer. As it is Badger Week there could only be one choice. So raise a glass to new jobs and in recognition of badgers.
