I recently attended an international maths specialists conference in The Hotel Bristol, Amman. On the last day, just after lunch, we were settling into word problems and dividing fractions and decimals - fun! I needed to stretch my legs because I had been sitting down for quite some time. As I wandered over to the window, I looked out and saw the fattest rainbow. Now, as you all know, I get very excited when I see rainbows! I cried out, "WOW, everyone! Come and look!" I completely distracted everyone!. All the other maths specialists jumped out of their chairs and started to take pictures. The instructor could only laugh. I apologised for being so disruptive, but I think it was worth it.
....and now it is raining - lots! Which is great for Amman and her water reserves. Not great for this elementary school teacher who will have students inside, all day, for 7 long hours! Thank goodness for Lego and paint!
