All this postage about our pilgrimage to Norwich has blinded this blog from what is actaully going on right now. Before I lose myself in the 13th century, I must report that Autumn has started with a vengeance.
We are already in the second week of volleyball practice. Daughter #1′s school team is coming off of an undefeated season (21-0, or something like that), but they’ve lost a huge number of graduating 8th graders, and her class, the present eighth grade, is trying to live up to expectations. Daughter #2 has just started with the 5th/6th grade team, for which she is very excited, having had to watch her sister for the last two years. D#2 is much more-sports minded than her sister, and a lot of her classmates have been in the same boat (older, volleyball-playing sisters). So, that team is locked and loaded. This will involve a lot of waiting around, and a lot of driving.
I have started on the road to employment. I will be teaching an undergraduate class on Arts Administration beginning next week. Like my previous position teaching middle school music, it should be a combination of exciting and hair-raising. I’m also going to be continuing to sing with the big church on Thursday nights and Sunday mornings (with occasional Sunday afternoons), and singing for the High Holy Days with the synagogue (with occasional Friday Shabbats.) The search for full-time continues apace. A lot of communicating, and a lot of commuting.
Details later, because I must be going. . . .
