Another unique experience I had this week was that my lesson plans were finished for the entire week on Monday. Ideally this is supposed to be the case every Monday, but I think this is the first occurrence this school year. I loved the ability I had to come in a little later and go home a little earlier. Of course, I loved it so much, that I didn't work hard enough this weekend, so I can't claim that I have all of next week planned for. Oh well. Worse things have happened.
Wednesday I had kind of a nice break. I had a class visitor from Bristol Bay Campus in Dillingham visit. He did some owl pellet dissections with all of my science classes. This just left me with my PE classes to teach. I think the best part was that there were no assignments to grade at the end of the day.
Friday evening, Tim and I had Heather and Nate over for burgers and games. It was a nice, relaxing start to our weekend. Saturday, Tim and I attempted to be productive with different projects, but I'm not sure we were very successful. Tim did do some school work and some homework. He did get the beast running again. Unfortunately, in the process he discovered that there is another problem. We're not quite sure what is causing the problem, so we don't know how to fix it, but it does run. I spent a few hours at sewing class. The first hour I spent sewing a binding onto the quilt I was making and the second hour I spent ripping the binding off. Needless to say, I didn't feel like I accomplished much by the time I left my sewing group. I did get to attend my first over the phone baby shower. Some of the ladies I go to church with through a 4-way baby shower for all the ladies in our branch that are expecting. It was pretty short and sweet, but it was also fun. We played a couple games, shared some advice, and some stories.
Saturday evening I attended book club. I've never been in a book club before, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. There were thoughts of good snacks and some fairly good discussion. Having no other experience to compare it to, I think it was successful.
Tim and I spent most of today at home. We had our regular routine of attending church over the phone and then talking with parents over the phone. Heather and Kim invited us over for dinner. I always like an excuse to get out of the house for a little while on Sundays.
We are now into December and still have no snow on the ground. There are 14 days of school left in this semester, and Tim and I leave for Anchorage in 3 weeks. It feels like the end of quit
