Full Moon

The night of a full moon looks a little like this...


But it really doesn't do it justice, with the human eye it is clear, bright, and vivid. It will be the 3rd day of school tomorrow and with a full moon tonight, it makes me wonder how it will go and if the students have much more energy flowing though their body. This happens at least once a month, and very rarely but often times a full moon will come twice a month. Popular legend has it that the full moon brings out the worse in people: more violence, suicides, accidents, aggression. The influence of the moon and behavior has been called "The Lunar Effect." The belief that the full moon causes mental disorders and strange behavior is very well known. The "lunacy" meaning "insanity" comes from the Latin word for "moon." With that I always keep an open mind with my students knowing there is a full moon! :-)

This week is just flying by and we are getting ready to head out of town tomorrow for a wedding!! :-) Tonight, after the city came to update our meter, we went to the pond to fish for an hour of relaxation. LOML caught 10 fish, and I caught 1 (with his help!). I was in charge of the camera...

Fish 1....



Fish 2....


Fish 3...



Fish 4.....


LOML doing what he enjoys, and helping fish out by getting the hooks out of their mouth that they swallow and toss them all back.... (I also missed 3 pictures of fish, they squirmed out of LOML's hand before I could snap the picture.)



Fish 8....



Fish 9... (my fish) :-)



Fish 10....



Last but not least.... The best fish of the night.... Fish 11 was a CATFISH!!!!!



We ended the fishing on that high note, plus it swallowed the hook. Here is a video from tonight of the Kirbster. He always brings a smile to our faces!

Goodnight! :-)
