Time surely has not slowed down one bit. After the hubs' brief stay in the hospital, I officially began tutoring at school three days a week. It is to help get the kids who are stuck in a bubble out of that bubble. They just need an extra little push and they'll be at grade level. Tutoring has taken over my world!! After the first few days, I realized it was a lot of work. I found myself saying to my teaching partner that I actually have to do work now. He chuckled and said that's why he didn't volunteer for it. We are all burnt out and it was super dumb to schedule the tutoring to occur immediately after school let out because the teachers don't even get a break in between much less the kids. I am seeing growth though in my little group of students and I like getting to know other kids. I am also getting a little extra for tutoring.
There has been knitting. One yet to be documented finish and one near finish on my needles. I spent Saturday afternoon sorting through my printed patterns. I filed away the newly printed and I also separated out the ones I want to knit in the near future. The hubs and I went through most of my stash the other night too. I came up with a genius idea. I cleared out a binder and in it I put all the patterns I intend to knit this year. I grabbed my mini post-its and set off to work.
Stitches West on Friday!!! I can't wait! I still need to go through the patterns that require yarn purchases to write down what exactly I need to buy. I also need to select the must see first booths.
March is going to be a busy month for me. We have our second assembly of the school year. My children will be singing "De Colores." I'm thinking of asking them if they want to sing "Firework" too by Katy Perry. I don't know, I just think it would be a good song for the kids to sing. They don't have much time to learn it but I'm sure they all mostly know it! That is on the first Friday of March. That night I will be going to a teacher event at our local aquarium. It's a sleepover but I didn't sign up to sleep there. You get to sleep in your favorite exhibit which is cool but I don't sleep well in new places. The following weekend I have a teacher training at Elkhorn Slough. The third friday in March is when I make my directorial debut! The last week of March we have parent/teacher conferences. Whew.
Pictures soon of said finished and nearly finished projects!
