I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Saturday reflections

(I set this up last night and then forgot to click on Publish.)

The carousel in Battery Park.

I took my students on a field trip today. We've been reading about Alexander Hamilton, and we visited sites associated with him in Lower Manhattan. It was a wonderful day—though we started out walking through gloomy churchyards in the rain, after lunch the sun came out and we finished the excursion with a trip on the Staten Island Ferry. And although I didn't have to prepare slides or worksheets or a lesson plan, I did have to research the history of all of the places we saw, and after playing tour guide for six hours, I'm so tired I can hardly sit up.
