We got home last night, after being away for almost a week. We had such a great Christmas visit at Daughter 3’s house.
An added treat for me is that our two grandsons (ages 2.5 and 5.5) came home with us for a visit this week.
As I write this, Grandson#1 is eating Sister Schubert cinnamon rolls- which are TO DIE FOR, if you follow the package directions exactly.
So my blogging may be intermittent, but I can work on my list.
Here is ITEM #1.
I always encouraged my students to consider the lofty, the grandiose, the outside the box- to extend themselves in their thinking.
However…they still needed at some point to ANSWER THE QUESTION with accuracy, substantiation, and a dash of wit. That is what I call BEING INTENTIONAL (I have no photographs today so I am using lots of caps).
Being INTENTIONAL, for those of us who are at another end of the age spectrum, adds the focus that my distracted ,dice-throwing living seems to have adopted.
While shopping last week, I saw a pre-made To Do List that listed categories for you. All you had to do was check the item off the list.
If I made one such list, mine would look like this- in no particular order:
*Spiritual (using one of my many devotional books on my shelves- I think the winner is
My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers
*Intellectual (this should not be a scary word- we all have intellects)
(to continue without parallel structure)
*Save something for the future
*Give away something
Couldn’t these be my learning objectives? My TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) if you will?
Just a thought…
Right now some INTENTIONAL grandson tending calls!
