Spring concert!! AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!

I guess there's not much more I can say -- this is the crazy time of the year when all the teachers here are about to pull out all their hair and question, "WHY DID I ALREADY SIGN MY CONTRACT FOR NEXT YEAR?????" We have some fun activities planned for these last couple weeks of school, but that just adds a new dimension of confusion to the whole mix!!

Tonight is the Spring Concert. We had practice today (all morning I might add -- not much academic work accomplished today!!). I finally got to see what happens between all the songs I've heard them practice in music class. It looks like a good program -- lessons from Proverbs and how reading Proverbs will guide you in your Christian walk. The only "problem" is corralling 75-100 2nd to 5th graders for about an hour! I admire our music teacher more and more with each performance!

I'm already thinking about how much I'm going to miss having my students next year. It seems like I'm just figuring out how they think and learn best, and I have to send them to the 4th grade teacher! I keep "threatening" to fail some of them because I don't want to get rid of them! They come up with the craziest stuff sometimes!

Oh, before I forget, there was one last thing. The school where I teach has 2 campuses. The other campus where the lower elementary classes are is a rented building which also has community activities and church services. One their bulletin board is an advertisement the other teachers thought I should sign up for. It goes something like this: "Sign up for our mass-wedding -- all you need to provide is the license!" Sounds . . . interesting.

So, what's the verdict? Should I sign up?? :-)
