Yesterday (Friday)--No school! The 8 hours had been worked earlier in the week, when we had parent-teacher conferences for four hours after school on Monday and Tuesday. Talk about a couple of LONG days! And yes, even though, I'm "just the sub", I got in on them, since I had been in the classroom for almost as long as the regular teacher by then. We're down to seven school days before the regular teacher returns. I'll miss the kids, but not the part of feeling like I'm always behind--at school and at home.
Anyway, yesterday was the day that the church youth group (B. and I are sponsors) had planned to paint the wire fence at church. The morning was gray and cold, but by noon it was clearing off and starting to warm up, even if rather windy, so we proceeded with the project, finishing in about four hours. The fence looks GOOD now--nice and SHINY!
Someone's hair is turning gray. Or is it "chrome aluminum"??? Only her youth group knows for sure!!

A week into the job, and I'm getting used to the classroom schedule. But the knack of getting all those papers graded in a timely fashion hasn't come back to me yet. Ah well, they'll get taken care of eventually! This week is a bit mixed up--we go to the next town over for an "author visit" in the morning, then on Friday afternoon there is the homecoming parade. So, also tomorrow, we need to get a banner made for the class to carry as they walk in the parade.
I'm tired. And I need a haircut!
