so much since the last post.
Kids:
DD is 1st chair flute in her school concert band YAY... all those lessons are paying off. Her all-city chorus concert was tonight and it was BEAUTIFUL!!!!!
DS1 and DS2 had great conferences today :) Both are playing baseball this spring.

Work:

Lived through my observation in a very positive way!

 2/3 grade concert was last Thursday.  Just a taste of the concert:
2nd grade
 3rd grade
It was dedicated to Music Makes Your Mind Grow... for music in our schools month!
The kids were terrific!!!!!

My chorus is singing the National Anthem at our local AAA division PHILLIES baseball affiliate  next Friday. WE can't wait. I designed T-shirts for them. SO EXCITED!!!!!!

Had the best time teaching 6th grade today.  (major, minor and dorian modes) The ideas kept coming the faster I taught. It was awesome. I'm going to make some manipulatives for class that I'll share when they're finished.

My friend and I did the SOAR award for 2 groups of winners today. It's always so much fun to do something with those kids that lets them have fun and be creative at the same time!

Little League keeps me hopping as player agent and trying to get the league moving in a forward growth direction. Fortunately, I have some very positive people on my side. I never would have guessed I'd be so involved a year ago.

The band parent president asked me to consider being an officer next year. I said ok... Am I nuts? But it's an incredible organization.

Knitting:
What's that?? I finished a baby blanket weeks ago that is still waiting to be blocked.... pictures after that happens (which I hope is before the baby is born!)

OK.... gotta do some school work! Night all

Baby panda in DC

Yesterday the National Zoo had a baby panda born. How cute is that. The panda cam might be too busy but bookmark it and you can maybe see it later! On a musical note. My first chorus rehearsal was today. I hope they think I'm as crazy as I am. Trying to get them to really articulate those consonants. It's hard work! Knitting? what is that? Hopefully by October I'll be in a schedule where I have some time to do some crafts. Between this work thing and my kids life, I have none of my own. It's ok though, can't get in trouble that way!

School has begun! Tomorrow starts the third week with kids! I can't believe it . But I'm LOVING back at the elementary school and I can tell that the kids are happy I'm back too. :)
My daughter went in the week before and helped me decorate a bit. She colored all my solfege hands that I found on pinterest I've found some fantastic things there and it only gets me more and more excited for school. Mom had a birthday on Friday and I have a special package for her.... not telling yet. boys are playing baseball again.... and the daughter is playing soccer. She is also in her school's marching band and jazz band and choir(s). The last is dependent on her audition results from last week. Maybe I'll find some time to blog again, now that I feel as though my life is returning to me.

had to share

in the ravellenics I earned a few medals. Not as many as I had hoped but I guess enough considering we were on vacation at the time as well. Hat Dash - 2 Lace Longjump - 1 Frogging Trampoline - 1 Cowl Jump - 1 Holiday Hurdles -1 Colourwork Cross-Country - 1 Single Skein Sprint - 2 Baby Dressage - 1 Shawl Sailing - 1 Synchronized Stashbusting- 4 I guess not too bad... Can't post pics yet as there is a gift for someone who reads my blog. trying to prepare for school both physically and mentally.... not being too successful! Oh and I have a stress fracture at the top of my tibia so my workout schedule has been interrupted until further notice (and just when I was beginning to drop some pounds)
