before naomi’s first ever orchestra concert (photos to come), we ate supper in daddy’s classroom.
the kids love coming here.
i can see why. halls that are empty, baby gerbils, weird gifts from students, computer games…
and oh boy, here was my delight:
getting a photo of the recycling lids that fit on top of the garbage cans.
dad, do you remember this?!?!?!
we made them back in the late 80s when i was in ECLIPSE (everyone can live if people save the earth). back then they were for “paper only” and had funky colors all over them. i don’t think that club exists anymore, but the lids have been repainted and repurposed!!! oh joy.

Kinda amazing. Actually REALLY amazing! I do remember!!!! :-)
I got to observe in that classroom….once upon a time.
Sooooooooo jealous of the orchestra concert. Lydia would so love that, and I feel very guilty for her missing out….hope she can connect with that crowd someday!
This classroom was my dad’s too? Before Jerry… I remember the smell, and the 5 legged kitten and the 2 headed pig… And popping in for some lunch money…
I was going to ask if this was Bud’s classroom. I though I recognized it. Pre-practice meetings before heading out to the track. Good memories.
wow..memories…I remember those trash can lids!
“life” in a science lab – cool
what do the “A”s on the wall mean?? would you please ask Jerry?
maybe i should add him on my facebook, so we can connect as science teachers hahaha ;)
nice science lab! aw, the baby gerbil, remind me of my hamsters, i wish them well as they are being taken care by my students during the holidays.
no wonder that the kids love it.
My dad was a high school choral teacher and I remember roaming the empty halls, playing hide-and-seek in the WHOLE building, having races, you name it! I BEGGED to go with him when he had to go during off hours.
I wish I had a high school science/shop table as my dining room table.
I love your can lids! What do you think your grandkids will be recycling with them??
What a cool classroom, I might have showed up to science class once in awhile if my class was that cool. :-)
Ha! I was in ECLIPSE in high school (mid-late 90s) — thanks for finally telling me what it stood for! (I mean, I knew the objective, but not the actual words. Funny.)
