|The boy on two wheels! On a bike path!!|
Last weekend we went camping for 'May Long' as it's called here in Saskatchewan. We have friends that we traditionally go with, even though we suffer through the cold almost every time... suckers for punishment I guess. Or camping enthusiasts? Maybe I'm the only one bothered by the chill... Anyway, with this year's early summery spring weather, it was a great weekend. We had lots of hikes (and geocaching!) in the warm sun, and two thunderstorms to watch. Awesome. Nolan even went for a swim. (He is four. It wasn't THAT warm.)
And then this weekend I had two sales - Saturday was my favourite, the Street Fair of the Cathedral Village Arts Festival. Crazy busy and decent selling. Today was another show I took on since I was going to have it all packed up anyway, but it was another dud. Lesson learned - Don't do tradeshows in the spring! They are not the right fit for me. I am, however, very much looking forward to being in Bazzart on June 18.

Now, that's a month of full weekends, but honestly, our weeks are pretty empty, so it's not as if life is busy... But now we've got something to fill our weekdays, too, for the next couple of weeks. N's preschool teacher left in March to have a baby, and their usual sub, a lovely lady who used to teach there, came to fill it. One morning they needed a sub for the other teacher, and since their sub was already teaching, I got a call from the director. Who didn't even know that I used to teach there. Meant to be?? And then... Sub-teacher had holidays booked, and Baby-teacher decided not to come back right away after all, so yours truly gets to be teacher for the last two weeks of school. Fun!
N and I went to all three classes together (one is his class) on Thursday and Friday last week to meet the kids, and tomorrow we start on our own. I say we because N thinks we are teaching. He went from not wanting to go to school anymore (I think he's just done with routine) to today telling me that his new favourite day of the week is 'school-days'. I just finished my lesson plan - we're working on the food groups right now - and am actually kind of looking forward to having fun there. Wish me luck!
