The dawning of a new day...

well, it's night, so that doesn't make sense.
Anyway, things are coming along in the house. We have lots to do, but I hope it will be done by Halloween. I will post pics soon.

J's piano teacher approached B with great news. Seems the boy has a sharp ear and is picking up the piano very well. I hope he continues to dig it. He is really shining this year. He is reading and all around doing well.

S has started to read a few words. AMAZING really. My baby is going to be 6 shortly and that is a sad reality. Oh well. We found out she is quite the perfectionist in school. She cries when she does her work wrong... OH NO!! This obviously is not from this end. The teacher said some kids are just harder on themselves. Great, she and Jake already have such a competitive nature. What will they be like in 3 years? 5?? high school???????????

Finally, I gave my principal my notice. I will be done at the end of December. I left it mostly at the fact that I have family/personal issues that need attention. Although sad to see me leave, he understood. I will be able to continue with Drama. I was happy about that since it is really going well. I have a weight lifted...B is a bit worried, but I will make it all ok ya know. Gotta do it.

Peace and enjoy these lovely fall days.

so much to do and such little time in which to do it!

so lot's have been going on...this last week marked a sad day i had to remember and then all this:

first, the play is moving along nicely. the last scene will be blocked tomorrow. i hope the last bits of flats will be up and painted by sat. whew!
secondly, school is just impossible. my students have some serious issues with authority. you'd think that a private school would be better than public, but nope. according to several teachers there, these kids are that way for everyone. many kids are transfers... kids kicked out of other schools, including public schools. how bad are you to get kicked out of public school??? geez, i really didn't know that when i took this job.
finally, we decided on getting unfinished floors throughout the lr,dr, kids room and hall. $$, super messy and inconvienent, but they will be awesome. we are all living in the playroom, kitchen and our bedroom. i feel overly confined.

other than that... peachy keen baby! one day i will be able to chill... ha. well after nov. 18th!!!
