This has been a weekend filled with soccer games for Middle Sister and Little Sister. The weather was beautiful yesterday and cold, windy and rainy today. I have to keep reminding myself that it is only April and doesn't need to feel summer-like every day.
I should be very ready to get back to school since on Friday I was able to attend a conference with a teaching colleague and had a little bit of a break from the regular routine. However, this warm weather is making me feel like I need a break, too.
There's nothing like grilling out on a Friday night with friends, not needing to rush back home for anything.
I am almost thankful that the weather forecast for this coming week is cold and rainy. It is much easier to be in school when the weather isn't great.
I've had some visitors in my library for a few weeks now. They were very quiet the first three weeks, but now that my friends have hatched they are definitely not quiet.
After beginning with nearly forty eggs, we now have nine baby chicks cheeping away. They went home on Friday, which will make my students sad. I, however, am ready for a break.
And as another sign of spring this week, Big Sister had her first ever track meet.
She wasn't horribly excited to compete in meets, although she enjoys practice. We are just glad she is trying it and being a part of a team.
We've got track meets, soccer practices, piano lessons, some late nights of work and the elementary art show coming up this week.
Since there are just a few hours until bed, I'm off to get things organized for tomorrow and hopefully find a few minutes to sneak in some reading.
