Friday's Fave Five - 7/26/13

1. Had a good practice this morning with a quartet at church (one of whom was my son) who were singing a great arrangement of "At the Cross."  I don't get to play for them on Sunday morning, but it was fun just to get to play for in rehearsal.

2. I can see my dining room table again.  I've finished more projects.

3. Yesterday morning I couldn't sleep so got a whole lot done on a vocabulary program instead.

4. A former student from my first year pulled up an old pic on FB that I'd posted probably a couple of years ago, of our homeroom that year.  (36 students in one class!)  It started an extended conversation with a number of students from my very first year of teaching.  It was a joy to hear from many of them and see where they are in life now.

5. And finally - A wonderful lunch on Wednesday with my wonderful friend Gretchen.  Something like that never fails to be a great encouragement.

Lunch with a friend is always a plus! One of the things I love about summer. That, and getting projects done.

Have a great week ahead!

That is a big first class! Neat that you've been able to keep in contact with many of them.

I haven't made any lunch buddies here yet - probably just as well now that Jim's mom is here. Always nice to get together with a friend!

The picture of your class made me smile. How fun that so many responded on facebook to it.

Lunch with a friend is always a time of encouragement and refreshing for me too. It should happen more often for us girls!

It's probably a good thing I don't have a formal dining room table. I'm notorious for dropping things on available spaces and forgetting about them. Good for you for getting that project done!
