I hope everyone is enjoying the extended. I sure am. Today I spent a few hours on the beach, my favorite place. Today marks the final week of my graduate class. I DID GET MY PAPER FINISHED. THANKS FOR ALL THE WELL WISHES AND ENCOURAGEMENT. You all won't believe how excited I am to have the final week of school off from grad school. There have been so many activities for the outgoing 8th graders and I've been busying supporting my team. Two weeks ago the team hosted the 8th grade dance. It was really nice minus the way students dance today in the presence of adults. The event was semi-formal and I had every intention on wearing a more appropriate dress but the day was overbooked. Earlier the ESOL (English Speakers of Other Languages) Department hosted our Multicultural Luncheon.If you follow me on Twitter you can see all the wonderful displays I tweeted featuring various locations around the world. This is one of my favorite photos and this one.
I wore this dress to help serve at the Multicultural Fair. I have a thing for flared Spanish dresses. I know random but it's so very true. I absolutely adore the Spanish teacher at my school. KT was her student aide this year and she was so very kind to him.
This look had to take me through the whole day and night. I had not time to shower and change into more appropriate attire. We decorated right after the dismissal bell and soon after students were returning to start the event and I was sent to my post which was dance floor supervision. I had a fun night with the kids. I took a few pictures of some looks that stood out. I'll post them later.
What did I learn from this experience? My son will not be attending any dances! I'm soo kidding. Only one week until his 12th birthday. The day has been planned but no invites have been delivered. I really should do better but my life is a whirlwind most of the time. I'm thinking of the advice Angela Bassett gave to her daughter in 'Jumping the Broom' (I'll save my review for another post but I will say save your dollars!) the day of her wedding. Marriage is like a dance and as long as the music plays one should keep dancing. Sounds like advice I can use to juggle my many hats. Besides when I need to release some frustration I usually turn the radio up at home and dance around my apartment and in the mirror.
Are you a dancer?
