Yesterday was busy. School for six hours and brainstorming with another, while I typed whatever we came up with into the appropriate boxes.
We’re doing six weeks of thematically designed lesson plans, basically. I have no idea how my peers will receive this. I’m choosing the core texts, and we’re generating the rest of everything off the cuff. I rather wish I had my old lesson plan books now. I tossed them all in the move.
I’ll feel better when this is all over and done.
There was no writing yesterday, so it’s a good thing I’m challenging myself to only write six days a week. Yesterday was school and then a visit to the wedding venue, which is pretty. The five of us (all parents plus bride) milled about and mumbled to each other as we tried to figure out what the bride wanted.
I’m sure it will all be fine.
I got a phone call from the daughter who informed me that her wedding dress was in. Two friggin’ weeks it took. So now the dil2b and a bridesmaid and I head into the valley on Saturday to pick that up and have them try on bridesmaid dresses. That’s after the dil2b and I head over to see how the first fitting went on her wedding dress. (I’ve got the expertise on wedding gowns, I guess, since I’ve made four. Lucky me.)
I would feel better about the weddings if school was even remotely under control.
I’ve got the first run on kinder classes for the fall done. I’ll check them tomorrow, fill out the grids, and be done with that on Friday. I’ve got the new math text in hand (because really, new site and new principal are NOT enough for the district. Let’s throw some brand new curriculum at us, too.) and I need to look that over so I can return them.
I am looking forward to two weeks of non-school, and taking on my brother’s dog for three weeks.
(Okay, so maybe it’s only the first half of that sentence I’m really looking forward to. We’ll see how Coco does.)
And the only reason I even started this post was to announce that I wrote today. Or rewrote. Two pages. Thirty minutes or so.
But I wrote.
