This has been a fast week. A teaching opportunity had opened up at my old junior high school. I didn’t expect to land this teaching job so soon, but I’m so glad I got it. The kids are so eager to finally experiment with clay and acrylics after having three months with a substitute with no training in the fine arts. I should feel so lucky to have such enthusiastic students. Well, we’ll see after a few weeks anyway. 🙂
I’m enjoying this four day weekend with lots of food and family and sleeping in and taking my time to do my own things. A quick scouting trip for PATT with the sis today led us to the Cooley house, where we were so graciously invited to a Louisiana crawfish party. sweeeet. Then a bit of shopping and chilling on the lawn near Mam’s. Root beer and sour cherry is my new favorite combination thus far. A quick stop at Kaboom‘s before closing time and I picked up this sweet edition of Kathy Kollwitz drawings and prints that will make awesome scans for future charcoal lessons.
