Life has been crazy busy. I started writing a blog over spring break, but I never finished. So here’s just a short update on what’s been happening.
Spring break we took a short little trip to Seattle. We went shopping, visited some of our favorite shops, saw some relatives, and visited the tulip fields in Mount Vernon. Pictures are on Facebook.
At school, we’ve been spending time on our end of year testing, and more recently preparing for field trips and end of year celebrations.
I am also a coach for Girl’s on the Run, an after school program meant to equip girls with personal empowerment strategies. It has been fun to get to know some of the other kids at school and get outside to exercise with them. It has also given me ideas for my own classroom instruction. The season ends with a 5k that all the girls participate in.
Ronnie and I both played for the Mid Columbia Musical Theater’s production of Cats. It was quite an experience as the pit was back stage and we couldn’t see any of the show….not to mention the people dressed up as cats, dancing around the stage singing nonsense words.
This week, Ronnie is playing for another production called Guns of Ireland. It is a show written and composed by locals and performed by high schoolers. I haven’t seen it at all but I’m looking forward to see what it’s all about next week. Today we had to go to Value Village to find him some “Irish” clothes to wear for opening night. Maybe I can sneak a pictures of him…
Because I have a non-continuing contract at school, I’ve had to reapply for jobs next year. So far I’ve had one interview and applied in three school districts. It’s hard to be patient. but there’s not much else I can do at the moment.
I know it’s been a while and I feel like I should have a lot of things to say, but it’s a lot to process into an interesting, intelligible blog, so that’s it for now. See you in June!
