I have long enjoyed reading the blogs of others. Lurking in the background, presence unknown (or at least I think it is unknown), following the thoughts on life and what not. It has been fun, but a somewhat creepy existence. I'm beginning to feel like those little old ladies peeking out their windows watching the world, but not participating. So, this is my attempt at getting my two cents out there. It takes me off the stupid world of facebook (who cares what you are doing every two damn seconds) and offers me the opportunity to share my thoughts on this crazy world.
I recently finished up a unit on geometry with my 3rd graders. We had to cover the concept of tessellations and how they must form a repeating pattern with all sides fitting perfectly together and no space in between. It occurred to me as I was trying to figure out how we would create our "perfect" tessellation patterns when 3rd graders can't even cut straight, that life is in fact not a tessellation. Nothing fits together perfect as we think it will. Life in fact is the space in between.
So...welcome to my space.
