We had plenty to do. On Monday I went to my first Pentacle director's meeting because I'm auditioning Secret Garden in a couple weeks. I knew most of what was discussed. I am excited and nervous about this show. Excited because I love to direct theater and nervous because I don't want my first show to be flop. In addition to the regular stress that comes with directing, I lost my vocal director and choreographer. My friend Jeff is going to help with vocals. And I got Kimber to agree to be the choreographer. This will be good. Still... not much time to get my act together now.
On Friday, a couple of these students got under my skin. They were complaining because I was trying to help them grade their set model assignments While complaining they were bullying Hannah because she had put in a good effort with her model. They even had the gall to insinuate that I did Hannah's assignment for her. When I called them on it, one girl whipped around and said something to the effect that I should have anything to say because I wasn't a real teacher and shouldn't be there. That was it. I lit into her.
I've already started. My friend John Hatch has built a couple of things for me in the garage already. He built a screen for a dance Kimber is doing this week, and a giant easel for a giant book I need to make for my friend Robert's play.
Let's see... what else happened this week?
I've been able to walk everyday with one friend or an other.
Hannah and I went to see Radium Girls at Pentacle theater.
I taught voice lessons... and school... and cleaned house... kept the troops fed.
Chad is working on banking the corners so that the trails will be good for racing. We had a lot of dirt to move.
At one place, they discovered a paved road under the dirt. Weird. Who did that?
Chad and John sprayed the weeds a couple times.
John keeps getting poison oak. We are not sure how. I think it must be on his gloves, shoes, or clothes.
Chad and Lilli performed in the ward talent show. Chad played the uke. Lilli made up a tap dance on the spot.
Well, that about sums up the week. Check in next week to see if we did anything else more exciting.
