Halloween day it rained of course and the kids were all too excited to really focus on learning. However, we made the best of it and I made it trough the day having our parade and noontime carnival. I think it was the power of my tutu and cape that helped me persevere.
We are a K-2 school so fun had to had by all!!!
I designed the shirts and we got together for a night of tutu making.
The kids loved see us. all dressed up
Our high school marching band comes every year and performs. This year was sensational. No wonder they will be playing at Carnegie Hall in March 2015. I am proud to say that some of these great musicians are former students.
By the time Friday night Halloween Night rolled around, I could be found on the couch with blankets, a pillow, the remote and a bag of cough drops. i was MISERABLE. I stayed there for the weekend watching Hallmark Christmas movies in between coughing spasms and mini naps.
I knew Sunday night that I needed one more day of rest. We use a computerized sub system. There was a glyph in the system and I didn't get a sub for Monday. I called our secretary who was able to fix it. I mean, who would want too work those hours.
I asked the other day on my Facebook page about substitute shortages, it seems to be an epidemic nation wide. I remember when getting a sub was so easy, there were always several qualified people to choose from. Now, it it sometimes frightening to let it fall to the system if I haven't been able to pre-arrange it.
I did manage Sunday, to finish a few projects that I have been working on.
I have more to share, but I'm trying to make a better effort of spending time with my husband and our dogs. I had some quality time with my son earlier over an In and Out Burger- he's 18 years old, so any time with him is quality these days, even if it is just eating burgers together. I also have some much needed laundry to do. Not even my cape and tutu can help me get through that- although if I don't do laundry all I'll have to wear is a cape and tutu.
