Hello all and hello Monday! I am happy today to link up with Heather, Tanya, and more right here!
I have two more weeks of school and 8 more unique outfits to create. I am at the point where I would like to repeat pieces! Lol!
I am so ready to be done, but you guys, I may cry on the last day I see each group of students. I see Group A on Mondays and Tuesday and Group B on Thursday and Friday, except our last week we only go Monday through Thursday, so it will be Monday and Tuesday and then Wednesday and Thursday with no Wednesday asynchronous day. That was a run-on sentence and I’m too tired to fix it! I teach my virtual kids during my planning periods., but I am so tired of teaching on a screen!
I have had so much fun getting to know these kids! We have had some great discussions. Teenagers are really great people, you know? We found that we have basically zero behavior problems from the kids that chose to come back in person.
Friday after school I finished this…
I really liked it and couldn’t put it down as evidenced by the fact that I read it from Wednesday to Friday in pieces after school and in the evenings on a very busy week.
Tom and I had a date night because the kids went to see one of the three Shakespeare in the Parking Lot plays – Much Ado about Nothing.
We tried a new place that has this mural on the outside.
I tried this and it was good.
We shared their pulled pork nachos as our dinner and also got vegetable skewers because they were out of salad!
We got ice cream after because Tom loves getting ice cream and we rarely do it. I am happy with a kid size scoop and always do that. We went to Graeter’s – if you know you know. It is really good ice cream from Cincinnati, Ohio, I think.
Saturday morning I started this book.
I ran to Kroger to get just a few items and I made portable snack/charcuterie boxes. I did Babybel cheese, spicy pickles, grapes, Club minis – so cute!, and 3 types of cheese cubes.
It was time for the family to see Jack in Comedy of Errors at the Shakespeare in the Parking Lot Festival. He had one of the principal roles and was so good. I know I am biased, but this kid can act. He has great stage presence, great enunciation, great voice projection, and comedic timing.
They set the play in modern times at a music festival but still used the Shakespeare dialogue with a few changes to some lines. And now, Mason has been bitten by the acting bug and did two plays in college. We will see where this takes them but it scares Tom and I because we are pretty practical people!
Jack is sad because he has been part of this youth community theatre for 3 years and this was his final play.
Jack’s fans – back, my mom, front left, my mom’s best friend, and front right, Tom’s mom.

After the play we crossed the street to an italian restaurant and had a nice meal with lots of leftovers.
So, the play was outside and it was really hot. They asked that people still wear masks. I have been talking a lot about this with my friends and students. When and how will fully vaccinated people get to stop wearing masks?
Love this, Tanya! I will know start shopping at Walmart.
I was super careful for a year! I was one of the most careful of people I know, but it is time. If you are fully vaccinated, you do not need the mask. If someone wants to wear one, that is totally fine! You choose to not get vaccinated, you wear a mask.
Jack and Mason stayed to watch the last of the Shakespeare plays, Hamlet. Tom and I got home around 6:30 after saying bye to our family that came.
It was such a nice night so we put the bedroom tv on the patio again. I read my book mostly while Tom watched Alias.
Ernie was our only kid at home!
Enjoying the lights – we were both so tired!
Sunday morning meal prep for the week – I made homemade light egg mcmuffins and cauliflower fried rice with ground turkey for my breakfasts and lunches this week.
Then, I did school work, walked, and read!
How was your weekend?
What was the highlight?
