Let me just say that my life has been nuts lately:
*1st Nine Weeks grades were due.
*I had a 12 hour grading day last weekend, preparing for Parent/Teacher conferences.
*My drama class has been helping on props and set painting for the fall musical, Cinderella. I'm not directing, but the drama class should be involved in productions.
*We finally presented at the State Department of Education conference yesterday. Putting the presentation together with colleagues took some time. Thankfully, it went really well. We even scored a couple of tweets about it. (Yes, Twitter is a great place for educators.)
*Two days at that conference meant leaving lesson plans for a sub. And let me just say that leaving lesson plans is a lot more work with the three performance classes this year. Sheesh! I wanted to tell them to bring a book and read. Not exactly quality lesson plans.
In between all of this, the Mr. and I drove to Big City to babysit E, carved pumpkins with the Bug and her sister in Tiny Town, and battled a ridiculous amount of the lovely grass pinwheel thing-a-ma-bobbers. They are a plague. (Think Moses will show up saying "Let my people go?!")
Yes, it has been a hectic couple of weeks. Thankfully, tomorrow is a short day and the end of the school week. Whew!
