I had Balt go to daycare today because I had my first yearbook club meeting afterschool today. I dropped him off at 7am and then went to the post office to mail Monika's first couple of packages for school. Last night her aunt sent me a bunch of photos (see right) of her move in at Claremont McKenna yesterday. I was so excited to see the pictures but so sad that I was missing out on all the fun. I am so glad her sister, Erika, is there to help out, mostly because when she gets home she can tell me all about it.
We had a big staff potluck breakfast this morning and another day filled with information, note taking and things to think about about. I feel like a lot was accomplished but I have yet to even start dealing with my classroom or think much about what I'm doing the first week of school. It's like riding a bike, right? You just jump on and go. I've been primarily in the photo lab because of yearbook. I had my first meeting today. The sales rep come in early and showed me how to install all the plug ins for In Design to all the computers. I had kids apply for editor positions and talk about possible themes-- including a Back to the Future theme idea with 2015 being the year Marty goes to in part 2 (I love it) & it's also the movie's 30th anniversary.
Anyway, it made for a very busy day. I picked up Balt at 5:30pm and we went home and ate dinner together. I made a corn quesidilla with veggies and went for a post dinner walk with Balt. I popped back into to school to finish up the computer work in the lab and came home eager to get to bed. I am exhausted. I may miss my girls but staying busy helps. Of course working with the best team at Memorial makes the day fly by.
