This is quite the tense weekend around our house. My daughter is auditioning for the performance dance company at her dance studio. It is quite a production, which I think is really good. They have to fill in a multi-page application/questionnaire and then the process takes Friday afternoon/evening and all day Saturday. It involves interviews, learning dance routines, and performing multiple times for the 15 judges/dance teachers. We'll receive a phone call Sunday morning if she doesn't make it. If she does we go down to the studio to see which level she is put in. (please don't get a phone call, please don't get a phone call...)
I feel like it's great experience for future auditions and job interviews. Being poised, answering questions, feeling the pressure, etc. At 9 years old it a lot to do and she is really nervous, but also excited!
1:00 Update: My daughter made it!!!!
The email transfer is going to be finished on Sunday afternoon when I get to have a chat with a Google rep (he is in Australia so it'll be Monday morning for him). And I've begun work on transferring our old website information over to the new one. Next comes training my staff.
The Library is up and running. I've got awesome student assistants this year! Boy that makes a huge difference!
Books and Reading:
My reading has definitely slowed down now that I am back at work. I have decided to alternate adult lit and YA lit and see how that goes. I am also trying to read one book a month for my Middle East Reading Challenge since I have pretty much completed the other challenges that I signed up for. I really need to do posts for each challenge (you know, the "I've finished the challenge" post).
