The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 47

The Good:
Got back into racing this week with a Turkey Trot 5k race. Great results overall and a nice way to re-enter the race scene!

The Random:
I gave my students their geometry pre-test this week and as usual got some hilarious responses. One little girl, not knowing the names of some shapes gave them new names altogether!

The Fun:
We had a super low key Thanksgiving. Lazy morning, saw "The Crimes of Grindelwald" in the afternoon, and then a nice dinner at Legal Sea Foods!

Congrats on the Turkey trot 5k. They are so much fun. I love running a turkey trot Thanksgiving morning. then I feel justified in stuffing myself in the afternoon! :) That shape LOOKS like it should be named Robin!

Great job on the race. We went to the musical Come Far Away, and were blown away. It was amazing!

We were going to go to the movies with my sister Thanksgiving night but everything was sold out till the 9:45 show. There is no way I would have been able to stay up that late!

Thank you for hosting. Robin is a good name for a shape! Well, maybe not that shape.

Love their geometry answers! Your Thanksgiving sounded so nice! We saw "Crimes" over the weekend too. I really liked it!

A 5K must have been so easy for you! And fun, too!
