weekends

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.

      Aww. Thank you so much Mrs. Sajda. It’s teachers like you and McEwan, Walton, Ingram, and Brawner that have really made a positive impression on me. I really appreciate it and I can only hope that I can do my best to do the same for my students.
