One of the intriguing aspects of my job at summer school is PCO (Parking Control Officer) duty and the fact that people use this blind corner as a parking lot. Even though we tell them every day there is a safe and accessible parking lot on the other side of the building, with a door to the classroom hallway, parents still want to let their kids off on this blind corner. This is a relatively busy street with a city bus route. Amazingly there have been no accidents yet. Of course there are still 15 days of summer school ahead.

For the month of July this is my home away from home. Rather taking a break, I’ve chosen to be a Summer School Vice Princpial. I’m sure many of you are asking why in the world would any sane person choose to do this, but the truth it is a great experience. For the most part, the 760 students are here because they want to be here. The teachers are super motivated to work with these students. It really is a fun time.

Inspired by the photos in Leanne Cole’s Monochrome challenge, here is a picture of the Ottawa River I took this week with my phone. I used the Fotograph app to make it black and white.
Inspired by some of Cee’s great flower photos here are some quick shots I took in the garden this morning with my iPhone 4S.
It was a beautiful morning for a dog walk. Lots of fresh snow, clear sky, clean air. Beautiful way to start the day.
An amazing sunset tonight.
