The winter has been dragging on and on this year. I’m ready for warm weather, consistent sunshine, and the end of snow for at least a little while. Life has been rolling along as usual. This week is a little extra crazy. Tuesday night was Open House at school. Tomorrow night is a special missionary guest speaker at church. I’m looking forward to hearing the speaker, but the timing is really hectic. Tomorrow is also my dad’s birthday. He’s 60 this year, which is really hard for me to believe. We had plans of doing something big for him, but I don’t think big is gonna happen. Then, Friday night is the spring concert at school. Yes, I realize that it’s not spring yet, but our other options for scheduling put us into spring break, or Easter, or testing week, or just too close to the 6th grade musical (which I also direct.) Anyway, I’ll be glad to have that checked off my to-do list. Right now, I’m just praying that enough of the students are healthy enough for us to do the concert. On Monday, about a third of my choir was out sick. About a quarter of my band missed school yesterday. Today, I saw a few more choir students leave to go home. It’s crazy! Hopefully, though, they can get it flushed out of their system by Friday. In the meantime, I’m loading up on extra vitamins.
Oh, and I can’t believe I almost forgot this. I should have my newly renewed passport in a few weeks. That makes my plans official to go visit my sister in Germany. I’m planning to travel with her best friend. I’m so excited I can hardly wait!
