Day 116/365 Macro time

Good gosh almighty, I love macro.  Love, love, love.

I had a crazy day today.  I told the principal that I would fill up and hour and a half with excerpts from the Mr. EHS show at a senior assembly on Thursday.  2 days from now....  Well, when I went to talk to the boys about it, it seems that Thursday is senior skip day and the ones that are seniors will be "sick", and the ones that will be at school are juniors and will be taking the ACT/PSAE test on Thursday and won't be able to perform.  Uh oh.  Ummmm...what to do?

So, you know me, if I say I'm going to fill an hour and a half with a show, the show will fill an hour and a half!
The brain started racing, my fingers went to work on the internet, and before you know it......
ABRACADABRA!
We have a magician booked to fill that hour and a half!  Then, I had to make sure this was ok, and somehow find out how to pay for the $500 magician....whoopsie!
After conferring with said principal, running around like I was a crazy woman to set up tech and building requirements, the plan was in motion!
By the way....I had to teach today too... My life is unreal.  Plain crazy.

So, when I got home, I whipped out the camera, stuck the macro lens on and decided to go explore the tiny little world under my feet.  Macro is relaxing and exciting for me. I really need it for days like today to calm me down and remind me how small my troubles and stresses are compared to how large they are for some.
