M DAY: A non-Laboring Day

The day began bright and early with all the neighborhood abuzz with readiness for the Holiday At Home Parade and other festivities.

At 9:00 AM, Tony, Angela, and Noah Bane arrived for our eleventh parade, together. Their older children, former students and my young actors as Emile DeBeque’s children in SOUTH PACIFIC were busy with work and the parade: Jacob, 18, is a lifeguard and Ellie, 17, was with the Fairmont cheerleaders in the parade.

I love my time with the Bane family.

At the parade I also got to spend time with another student’s family, the Stampers and Schroeders.

The parade was hot, humid, and unlike previous years, a bit on the less exciting.

I returned home to teach from 1:30-9:30 PM, had supper and am currently on the floor in my study with four dogs surrounding me.
