Bus Trips

I'm curious.  What do you do when you take your students on bus trips?  My school is 30 minutes out of town.  We have 6 swimming lessons in town - 3 last week and 3 this week.  That's 12 thirty minute bus rides.  This is our first set of outings all year.  It's really expensive for the bus to travel to town from my school.

Anyway, I didn't really put too much thought into the bus trips because my students travel on the bus to and from school every day.  Some for an hour each way.  I thought they would be bus veterans.  A lot of them require many reminders to stay seated and use quiet voices.  I am quite surprised.  The bus drivers (we've had 2) are regular bus drivers for these kids.  They too are surprised.  I guess it's the whole "exciting activity with my class" element. 

So today, while I felt like a horrible woman for constantly telling kids to sit down and be quiet, I wondered "what else could we be doing here?"  Some kids read books and were very quiet.  Some actually napped.  But, are there any whole class bus games to play?  What do you do? Just deal with the madness?

  2. Dear Katie, I am sorry to hear that your doctor made a mistake and put you on Depo injections. You say that you are still getting injections? These injections are made from progestin, a synthetic form of progesterone which is used mainly as a method of birth control for women who cannot use any other form of birth control. One of the drug�s side effects is weight gain. A single injection lasts for three months. So if you are still getting these injections, please, please, tell your doctor that you don�t want to receive them any longer. The effects of the drug will remain in your body for three months, so during these three months, it may be difficult to lose the added weight which you gained, no matter what you do. There are other more gentler ways to regulate your periods and menses, especially at your tender formative age. Here are some of the negative reasons for not using Depo-Provera: it can cause decreased bone density which can lead to osteoporosis, depression, increased blood clots, liver damage, headaches, hair loss, leg cramps, nervousness, dizziness, abdominal bloating, and weight gain. For your stretch marks on your stomach, you can rub some vitamin E on them. Just puncture a capsule of vitamin E and gently apply to your stomach area once or twice each day. The stretch marks will respond to the vitamin E if you use it regularly and use it as soon as they appear. The older the stretch marks, the longer and more difficult they are to rub away. It is best to use natural vitamin E, which can be distinguished from the synthetic form by the following small print and notations on the vitamin bottle: d- is the natural form, and dl- is the synthetic form. Use only the d- form which is the natural form. I think that synthetic substances have caused enough harm already, and should be laid to rest. Find a doctor who will listen to you, have patience until the Depo drug gets out of your system and body, and continue follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen to get back to your former weight.
