Happy New Year

It's the start of a new school year. The weather is gorgeous - much nicer than we've had most of the summer; so it must be time to go back to school.

I finally got my mark for the theory exam I wrote August 8 - 81. I would have been happier with a higher mark, but it's quite acceptable. Unfortunately, I'm still having a lot of trouble with my arms, so I'm really unable to play piano. I've broken down and have been in to see the doctor; had a neck x-ray and am supposed to make an appointment to go back in a couple of weeks. I'd really like a referral to a physio, as it's very frustrating to not be able to do things.

Put Loopie and Baylee on the plane yesterday morning bright and early. Loopie had everything well organized; had preweighed her luggage, etc. Unfortunately the bathroom scales weren't the same as the airport scales. She was 8 lbs overweight on her largest suitcase and they weighed her carry-on (not allowed to be above 22 lbs). She was 6 lbs overweight on her carry-on as well. We were able to juggle things around and I took some things back with me, but it took about an hour to get that all done. That's why she had planned to be early at the airport. Good thing, eh?

This past weekend was busy, with welcoming and registering new students as well as a wedding. Rose was a bridesmaid for the wedding and is now sleeping in my guest room before she flies back to YK tomorrow bright and early. Lots of new students (and many parents) yesterday at service. I'm always excited at the start of a new year.

I now know what I'll be teaching, which is a good thing. I'll have English 9, Math 11, 21 (essentially remedial math) first semester and English 9 and Christian Ethics 9 second semester. In addition, I'll be coteaching a college course. Now to get my syllabi ready.
