Family and Life:
What a weekend of dance! My daughter and her friend were in their school variety show Friday and did SO well! The place went wild when they were done. Then Friday night, Saturday afternoon and night and this afternoon she is performing in Configuration, a dance show put on by her studio. I went Friday night and worked back stage last night. What I like about this show is that it's high caliber: only the dance company is in it, so it isn't everyone at the studio who happens to take classes. I like those shows too (who can resist smiling as 6-year-olds do hip hop or jazz?!), but every dance in this weekend's show was impressive, polished, and interesting.
The really fun thing is that friends of hers from school wanted to go, which made it feel so special to my daughter. She kept saying, "They are coming to see me." It's so sweet.
Well, I got a Reduction in Force letter yesterday from my school district. But, it's strange... it says they "don't need my services" for next year. All 7 secondary librarians got the same letter, but they claim they are only eliminating 2 positions. The whole thing is depressing and unclear. They are voting on the final cuts this coming Tuesday so I'll know more then.
Books and Reading:
Not much to report on this front since I am going to do a Monday post tomorrow, but I do feel like I should have gotten a whole lot of reading done this weekend and I didn't. Hmmmmm.
