A fun activity that I'm doing with my students this quarter is that each day I choose an idiom of the English language that my ESL students (and most of my MKs, usually) aren't familiar with. I explain it and we try to use it as many times during the day as we can. Today we learned "a breath of fresh air" (refreshing; it makes you feel better; a change that feels good )
I had Monday and Tuesday off of school, which was a breath of fresh air for me. I swam, hung out, had lunch with a friend, and went shopping at a local vegetable market where I got about three pounds of carrots for about 14 cents.
I grated six cups of carrots yesterday, and from them I made Morning Glory Muffins! I also froze some grated carrot so that I can make more later, and I still have more than enough carrots to take to school every day this week. Ahh!
May this short post with a food picture be a breath of fresh air for you blog-readers who have put up with my long posts about cultural adaptation and imperfections lately. :)
