high time

that I post.

My friend Deb came to my little kid's concert at school Friday evening even though her 'baby' is a senior. She's a real advocate of the arts in our school district (we need all the supporters we can get). At any rate, she taped first grade singing The Library Song by Tom Chapin (all of their songs were about reading) The only part that's hard to hear is the part where they're using a stage whisper. It's 'sh quiet please' and then the refrain again.

I give you the Library Song by Tom Chapin

It was a beautiful evening. The seniors had prom in the park from 4 - 5:30 just across the street from the K/1 building. Our program started at 6:30. We had to have it outside because there is no place IN the building large enough to house all the kids at once. (yes, the building is newly renovated) So we used the back steps and then the parking lot as the audience seating area. Parents brought chairs and blankets and everything worked out fine! The whole evening rejuvenated me in my job and spawned my brain to come up with some new ideas. I busted my behind getting ready for it though hauling all kind of equipment and setting up the risers alone.... was my workout for the day. When P and I got home, I lasted about 20 minutes into Thomas' magic railway with him until I was dead asleep. LOL

I am working on square #9 for the Way afghan.. I need to get cracking really. June 6th is coming fast.

Haven't been to any thrift stores lately either. Must. go. soon. But I have been frogging delicious fibers. If you're on ravelry take a peak at my stash that's marked recycled. Most of that will be going in my etsy store once it's open. Still working on a name for that. Maybe I should have a contest!

We've been really busy with the end of the year activities at the school where I teach and my own children's schools: concerts, art shows, etc.

I owe you a picture from our earth day concert which was unfortunately inside due to the prognosticated weather. I have it stored elsewhere...i won't forget though.

Today my baby is sick. He woke me up at 6 with a belly ache... and of course vomited... at least in the right spot and not on me!

I think my mojo is coming back... It's been gone far too long.

cute. glad everything worked out @ the concert. I actually liked that it was held on the backsteps and the parents got to sit in lawn chairs/blankets. I'm sure it made it cozier for everyone. :)
