Good morning, and I hope you are enjoying a day off today! We are having the best three-day weekend over here. Lots of relaxing and house cleaning (which doesn’t sound fun, but it sure is nice when it’s done and the house is sparkling)!
On Friday we visited the Wildlife World Zoo in Phoenix, with my mom, and we had a really fun day. We saw the entire zoo as well as the aquarium. Here are the kids, on a snack break:
Today I just wanted to explain why it might be a little bit quieter around here than usual over the next couple of months.
I mentioned this once before, but on Tuesday I will start my long-term sub assignment for one of the dance teachers at the high school where my husband teaches. She is taking her maternity leave, and I’m going to be filling in for her, teaching 5 dance classes a day (4 beginning and 1 intermediate).
This is a full time job, lasting until February 1st, and there is a lot more outside work than there would usually be for a sub, because I’m taking over for several months. So that means grades, tests, assignments, and creating dances for them to learn, as well as some after school rehearsals that are required (which are unpaid).
In addition, I plan to continue my regular part-time work schedule (which is Tuesday-Thursday, 3-9pm). So three days a week I will be working from 7am-9pm. I can, however, cut down on my part time hours if I have to. I also get Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks in there, to take a breather!
I am excited and terrified. I think it will be fun and a nice change of pace for me (and it will help our finances!), but it’s also a good thing that it’s temporary. I wouldn’t be able to keep that schedule up forever, and I won’t be seeing much of my munchkins!
Anyway, I still plan to post a few times a week, and there will definitely be something new every Tuesday, for Resolutions In Motion! And don’t forget the A Look Back link-up on the 1st of every month!
So please wish me luck or pray for me as I attempt to teach/control 200 students. Oh yeah, did I not mention that? There are 40 kids in each class! Here goes nothing!
