School has been busy, and thankfully I am keeping up on grading. (Well, for the most part.)
The musical is over. "A Christmas Carol," with public domain Christmas music, was a hit. We had good attendance, lots of compliments, and students who were pretty proud of their work. Huge cast, long days, and lots of hours, but here is the end result in photos:
Marley and Scrooge
Ghost present and Scrooge
Two of the street singers
Cratchit Family of the future
Fezziwigs in costumes by my dear cousin, Konnie.
Young Scrooge and Belle
A good friend from HS days and her little sis came to the final performance.
So nice of them!We are in the process of tearing down the set in my stagecraft class. (It was more fun going up.)
In between performances, we celebrated E's 4th Birthday.
The littlest Miss going down the slide with Birthday Boy E watching.
This was the first of about 10 trips down for her.
Breakfast with Nana and Papa
L our Pied Piper
On the Wednesday after the show Little Sis and Hubby from California came for a week visit.
All four siblings went out for dinner during their visit. This doesn't happen often enough these days.
We laughed so hard and had such a nice evening.
Two days after they left, our English Department went to the National English Conference in St. Louis. Free books and new ideas were in wonderful abundance!
We saw and heard from some of the gurus in English Education and several favorite authors.
And that brings us up to Thanksgiving 2017. It has been a hectic, but fun, fall. Maybe I will find time to blog once again. (Thanksgiving in a separate post. Stay tuned.)
Thank you for your patience and continuing to check in on Easy Street. We are alive and kicking.
