Spring break has arrived for Kettering Schools, and I will teach Monday through Wednesday, and have Thursday and Friday off to do some things with Quintin. The following week, I will have Wednesday through Friday off since Beavercreek Schools will be on break.
Friday night we inaugurated the start of Spring break by joining Brian, Joanie and Zach Pollock at Rocky’s Pizza in Beavercreek. Awesome tasting pizza! Thank you, Andi, Jim, Emily and Noah for that delicious Christmas gift. I am afraid I am hooked. After dinner, and as usual, some fun conversation, we drove to Fairfield Commons to watch the newly released, OZ, THE GREAT & POWERFUL. Great movie! Tyler Pollock joined us for the movie, and it was nice to see him for a few minutes since he left for Guatemala the following day to complete his student teaching.
Saturday, I picked up a dear friend, Betty Green, who was the aunt of a long time friend, Susan Cook. Susan was a professional clarinetist and teacher who died this past September. Betty showed me where Susan’s grave is located, and then we spent three hours catching up, and chatting away over lunch. It was so good to reconnect with Betty.
The evening took us to The Dayton Playhouse to see a student, and several other friends in the production, THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE. A tight, good, and enjoyable production.
Today was quiet. I taught some lessons after prepping dinner. We watched a movie, and then settled in for another movie – the traditional St. Patrick’s day showing of THE QUIET MAN.
Twas a good weekend – relaxing and enjoyable.
