It’s Sunday night of Labor Day weekend, 2014. And, it is still not over.
Friday I had a fantastic doctor’s visit with rave reviews. Friday afternoon, I enjoyed the company of two friends who shared in thunderous laughter. Friday night I attended the Beavercreek high school football game against Xenia high school so I could see several of my students marching with the band.
Saturday morning I was up early for a 3.5 mile walk with the dogs, ran into some friends in Lincoln Park, and enjoyed watching our annual Holiday At Home festival being set up in the park. At 2 PM, I joined my friend, Suzanne, for the Fair at New Boston. It was one of the neatest festivals I’ve ever attended! Later that evening, I joined a number of parents/friends and the Beavercreek show choir members – of which quite a few are my students – for a party. I arrived home a little after 1 AM having delivered several students to their homes.
Today, Sunday, has been fun and restful. I began teaching at 3 PM, and finished at 7:45 PM. Before driving my last student home, we stopped for a Mexican dinner, and then took milkshakes home to his family.
Tomorrow will start bright and early. At 7:30 AM, I will begin taking photographs of the festivals 5K race. I have several friends and students in this race. At 9:30 AM, the Bane family will arrive, and we will walk over to Far Hills Avenue where we have enjoyed the parade together for the past seven years. After the parade, I’ve been invited to a brunch at the home of a student’s grandparents. By 2:45 PM, I will be back in my study teaching until 10:30 PM. A long, full day.
Labor Day weekend is one of my all-time favorite’s. This year has been a little extra special.
