I went with Rachel today on a field trip. We went to the Main Street Theatre to see a play about Junie B. Jones. Junie B. is a character in a whole series of books by Barbara Park. Junie has an attitude and bad grammar. I am not particularly fond of the books but the kids like to read them and to hear them read. The trip was good because I got to be with Rachel and with her friends and classmates. I also got to spend some time talking with her teacher on the bus ride home. I have so much respect for Ms. D. who has taught for a very long time and has an obvious love for teaching. She also really loves the kids.
The weather was horrible and the theatre was terribly unorganized so the logistical part of the trip was not fun. But I think the kids had a good time.
I got a call today from the Head of School. I am supposed to call her back tomorrow and see if I can schedule some more interviews for next week. I'll have to do them early in the week so I can go and help Liz after her surgery on Wednesday.
Ed sent me an email today asking for an update of my commission statement. If all of the jobs I have completed come in before the end of the week, I will get a paycheck that is more than $2,000. What a way to go out!!!
