Christmas Catch-Up

25 Dec

I had really good intentions to update the blog weekly when I started it this summer. I seem to forget how demanding being a teacher can be. I can’t say I had the time to update, because I’m certain I could have found the time at some point.
Speaking of school, we have a short Christmas break this year, only a week and a half. I miss the days of two week breaks dearly. I have lots of plans of things I want to get done. Whether they will happen or not I am not certain.
Here’s a little bit of what we’ve been up to since November.
• Before Thanksgiving, I had an educator’s conference at the Lake of the Ozarks. The conference was good and it’s always fun to see friends there, too.
• Jeff’s family came over to our place to celebrate Thanksgiving. Jeff went to get Black Friday deals at 2am while I slept in. Then we made our way to my brother’s place and spent some time with him and his family.
• The Saturday after Thanksgiving my God-daughter Ruby was baptized. She is the daughter of one of my best friends, Liz, and her husband, Doug.
• Throughout December things were very busy. At school, I was busy preparing for our Christmas musical. Even though I never wanted or asked to do a musical (we usually do a traditional nativity thing) I somehow got put in charge of directing the musical. How did this happen, you ask? What? You are not a music teacher, Mary… was there some mistake? No, I am the one who can read music the best and therefore it was determined that I should direct the music. I’m hoping since we did such a big deal for our Christmas program that our Spring program will be scaled back a bit.
I’ll update soon about our Christmas and add some pictures. Feel free to leave a comment if you stopped by to read!
