Today's field trip focus was finding jobs in the medical field. We visited a hospital, and the Denver Animal Shelter. It is a new facility, and a no-kill shelter. I held a skinny three month old mixed breed puppy, whom they found in a box in an alley about three weeks ago. It was hard not to cry. In fact, it was hard to see all of those faces, albeit in clean cages with fluffy pillow beds (and heated floors in the winter) and very nice staff (we were there for an hour, and minus the vet tech who was giving us the tour - everyone bustled around, not minding us). I wanted to take a few home with me!
Yes, that is a giant glittery canine out front. A few of our students applied to work as volunteers, which I consider a success! However, between both destinations and another three miles in the hot, hot sun - we were fried.
Leftovers for Lunch:
Quick and cool dinner:
Due to my heat exhaustion, I did an easy home practice of slow flow yoga. Tomorrow is a teacher work day, so no more field trips (til Monday)! Hall-le-lu-yer.
